Pregnancy is different for everyone, especially three women
living in L.A.
whose lives all intersect when each of them is expecting!
Kneller has a great life: fulfilling job as a high school
supportive husband, and now, after years of trying, she is
She has the perfect plan to announce her pregnancy over
dinner to her family, but her younger sister Lyndi thwarts
throwing up into her beautiful cornucopia... because guess
is pregnant, too!
Lyndi, always the free spirit, hasn't been to a doctor, nor
has she told
anyone else in her life about her pregnancy. Her roommate is
and she's not quite sure that he wants to be anything more
than a good
friend. Additionally, her job at a flower delivery startup
requires her to ride her bike through busy L.A. traffic and
production sets. Every week, Lyndi delivers a beautiful
bouquet to the
hottest teen drama's makeup artist, who is the girlfriend of
playboy rock star...
Sophia Nunez is thrilled with her life. Her
Maisey, is getting ready to graduate, and while Sophia is
excited to see
her grow up (after having Maisey when she was only
nineteen), she is
also ready to have more free time to expand her makeup
spend time with her too hot to handle rocker boyfriend. When
realizes that just as her first kid is about to leave for
actually pregnant with number two, Sophia is surprised that her
boyfriend is seemingly excited about becoming a father...
What a fun and fresh novel exploring the highs and lows of
THE BABY PLAN by Kate Rorick is an insightful yet hilarious
shows no pregnancy is alike, and yet everyone has the same
Nathalie, Lyndi, and Sophia each have their own distinct
intersect in interesting ways and doesn't feel forced. From
stepmothers to flaky friends, THE BABY PLAN puts these
through the emotional ringer, not to mention the body
crazed hormones that go along with pregnancy. Over the
course of the
novel, you're able to see each woman not only learn what
capable of but also grow, physically and mentally, into
motherhood. There are times when everyone, both the lead and
characters, does things that aren't particularly likable,
and that took
away a little from the overall story. That being said, this
was a witty and
relatable women's fiction novel!
In Kate Rorick’s first adult fiction novel, we enter the
wild, bewildering world of modern pregnancies. You’ll
laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll shake your head as you wonder
where everyone’s sanity went...
Meet the mothers…
Nathalie Kneller: Nathalie’s plan: to announce her
pregnancy now that she’s finally made it past twelve
weeks! But just as she’s about to deliver (so to speak)
the big news to her family, her scene-stealing sister
barfs all over the Thanksgiving centerpiece. Yup, Lyndi’s
pregnant too, swiping the spotlight once more…
Lyndi Kneller: Lyndi’s plan: finally get her life
together! She’s got a new apartment, new promotion, new
boyfriend. What she didn’t count on—a new baby! She can
barely afford her rent, much less a state-of-the-art
Sophia Nunez: Sophia’s plan: Once she gets her daughter
Maisey off to college, she’ll finally be able to enjoy
life as make-up artist to one of Hollywood’s biggest
stars, and girlfriend to one of rock’s hottest musicians.
But after 18 years she discovers the stork is once again
on its way…
Now these women are about to jump headlong into the world
of modern day pregnancy. It’s a world of over the top
gender reveal parties (with tacky cakes and fireworks);
where every morsel you eat is scrutinized and discussed;
where baby names are crowd-sourced and sonograms are
Facebook-shared. And where nothing goes as planned...
