    Truly Enjoyable

    I was walking through the vast expanse of bookshelves at Borders one afternoon when I saw this book and thought it had a rather interesting title. So I picked it up and began reading the back of it... The small summary caught my attention so I bought it and began reading it immediately. This is the first book that I've read by Coleman and I truly enjoyed it. I fell in love with the characters and thought that their stories were very real and it was good to read a book like it. I've been reading a lot of paranormal books lately so it was nice to step back into a bit of reality for awhile and this book was perfect. The whole time I was reading I kept thinking "this would make for a great movie..." I always judge books by whether or not I'd ever read them again and I would definitely read this one again.

    I love Rowan Coleman!

    I have read all three of Rowan Coleman's books and love them! She beautifully captures friendship, love and children, magically weaving them all together. I just wish I could find a man like the ones she writes about!

    The latest Rowan Coleman mommy lit will remind the audience of family dramas by Eileen Goudge and Barbara Delinsky

    She is stuck on a train when she meets him where they talk. The next thing Natalie Curzon knows is that they are in Venice enjoying the sights in between making love. Jack tells her he will call her soon, but does not; breaking her heart. She soon learns she is pregnant and keeps her baby Freddie. When her electricity fails, she tells Gary the electrician that her spouse Freddie's daddy is in Dubai.

    Natalie meets Gary's assistant teenage girlfriend Tiffany, also as a single mom is raising a child who black and tells her the same lie. The pair attend a first aid class where they meet Meg who believes her husband is cheating. They begin to form a single moms' group with two other women. Jack is back and wants to be a father to Freddie, but shows no interest in Natalie, who detests the word platonic because she loves Jack. She also wonders how to tell her new sisters that she is single having made up a spouse in Dubai.

    The latest Rowan Coleman mommy lit (see THE ACCIDENTAL MOTHER and ANOTHER MOTHER'S LIFE) will remind the audience of family dramas by Eileen Goudge and Barbara Delinsky. Natalie learns the hard way that raising a baby nukes the parent's lifestyle as does her new friends who forge a support group to help control the nuclear waste. Points of view rotate so the audience knows what the prime characters are thinking and feeling, but Natalie is the focus as a likable vulnerable single mom.
