baby proof (Emily Giffin)

I read baby proof by Emily Giffin last year after receiving it as a Birthday gift from a friend. 

Claudia doesn't want children.  She finally faces the fact that she probably won't find Mr. Right (a man who also wants to skip the children) until she meets Ben.  Things seems to be going perfectly until one of them changes their mind... Now what?!

"This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It’s about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was--and that there is no possible compromise. It’s about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it’s about the things we will do--and won’t do--for love."  (from Emily Giffin's website)

If you've read Something Borrowed and Something Blue, also written by Emily Giffin, then expect much of the same type of writing.  I enjoyed the storyline and I found that it was a nice, easy read that dealt with a serious enough subject.  I just kept thinking throughout the novel, "I don't know what I would do!" 

It was a decent read, so if you're looking for something a little lighter that has a lot of heart, give this one a try.
