Great book, especially for those trying to conceive. Found it similar to Sex in the City style but with babies. My husband and I have been trying for nine months and I could really see myself in these women, it was an eye opener and a great book.

This is the first book by Jane Green that I have read and I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the book and will be reading more by her.

Loved this book. If you are a fan of Jane Green's other books such as Mr. Maybe and Jemima J, this is another good read. I liked this a lot!
