Overview

Voula Pavlopolous won't be planning a big fat Greek wedding anytime soon.

After a turbulent childhood and two-and-a-half former boyfriends--if you can call them that--Voula's content to have alone time in her crowded apartment and drinks with her best friend, Jamie (who's never been one of those married people who ditches her pals). Voula doesn't see it coming when Jamie says the two grossest words in the English language Voula can possibly imagine-"We're trying."

Of course, after "We're trying" comes "We're pregnant." Now, Jamie's busy with Lamaze class and besieged by swollen ankles, while Voula is becoming an expert on what to expect when your former wild-and-crazy girlfriend is expecting.

Well, Voula's tired of sitting on the sidelines of life and has decided she'd better start living it. First step: Stop being her mother's doormat. Second step: Stop being so picky and give a guy a chance. But most importantly: It't time to say goodbye to Armando, her Italian stallion roommate, and whoever else is living in their third bedroom. That's right-she is going to buy a place. There are three and a half million apartments in Manhattan. Finding the right one can't be that hard. Can it?

Ariella Papa's maternal urges have been satisfied (for the time being) by her puppy, Sophie, and by baby-sitting her friends' children. After hundreds of open houses and several adjourned closings, she considers herself an expert in New York City real estate.

    I couldn't put this book down.

    This book was awesome. It was about love, friendships, and real estate. It wasn't just about babies which, I thought might be the case. It had me laughing out loud. If you like this book you will love On the Verge by her as well!

    Bundle of Joy?

    When her best friend nee Jamie Jacobs married and became Jamie Jacobs-Sarakanti, she and Voula Pavlopolous remained best friends. However, now Jamie seems always busy when Voula needs her, but though the spouse is intimately involved he is not the cause. The married couple is attempting to become pregnant and that has caused the pause in their friendship................... Voula is stunned but will do anything for Jamie because her best bud has always been their for her especially when she procrastinates as she always does whether it is paying bills, finding a new roommate or a new Manhattan pad, or writing the magazine article that is past due. When Jamie tells her that she is a Lamaze student, Voula is happy and depressed, but the joy of her pal makes her wake up that it is time to live life starting with dumping mom and finding a man who would appreciate Voula, neurosis¿s and all....................... BUNDLE OF JOY? Is an enjoyable insightful look at friendship through the eyes of the one left behind while the other moves on with marriage and children. The story line drifts a bit with all that Voula must confront, but puts off as is her nature; however though that makes it more difficult to follow her chick lit revelations, the wandering adds depth to the lead protagonist as she struggles to modify her behavior ever since her best friend announced the ¿pregnant pause¿..................

    Chick lit

    Unlike most married people, Jamie never ditched her girlfriends when she married, yet she still wrecks havoc on her friendship with Voula when she announces that she is trying to have a baby. Somehow, this becomes one of the most prepossessing facts of Voula's life, one more bump in the hilly road of her her life. Between that, finding a new roommate who won't have a noisy affair with her other roommate, facing her issues that haunt the past, and falling in love, again, Voula has a good bit to handle. To simpify her various issues, she thinks, Voula decides to get her own place, and eliminate the roommate problem, but that has its own set of hassles. Through it all, she must be a supportive friend for Jamie, down to listening to the debate over circumsisions pros and cons. Though this story rambles quite a bit, it does have an air of realism and moments of humor that will engage certain segments of the reading public adequately.
