February 14, 2009 Bundle of Joy? by Ariella Papa
I really liked this one. It was nice to have a book about what happens when your friend starts trying to have a baby, gets pregnant and then has said baby. I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of the "laugh" with the two women's ability to actually remain close friends throughout the "ordeal." It's rare that the single, childless friend can remain in the other one's life.
The romance developed pretty organically and believably, which was a nice change of pace from some of the chick lit I've read recently. The twist was not what I was expecting, but it worked fairly well. There were a lot of loose ends - big plots that just...never finished. It seemed like the book ended because the author was tired of writing instead of actually concluding.
All in all, it was a good read and I'd pick up another one by this author in the future.
