Baby Proof by Emily Giffin
Baby Proof by Emily Giffin. Emily Giffin is the author of Something Borrowed and Something Blue. Both are really fun by the pool books. Her new book Baby Proof , has a new main character a successful editor at a Manhattan publishing house, Claudia Parr. She counts herself fortunate to meet and marry Ben, a man who claims to be a nonbreeding career-firster like she is. The couple's early married years go smoothly, but then Ben's biological clock starts to tick. A baby's a deal breaker for Claudia, so she moves out and bunks with her college roommate Jess (a 35-year-old blonde goddess stuck in a series of dead-end relationships) while the wheels of divorce crank into action. Even after the divorce is finalized and Claudia embarks on a steamy love affair with her colleague Richard, she begins to doubt her decision when she suspects Ben has found a smart, young and beautiful woman willing to bear his children. Sounds like a great light read. I am just waiting for a friend to finish her copy, then I will let you know how it is. I have complete faith in Emily Giffin, I read her last 2 books and loved them. There are always a few twists but I always like the outcome. Enjoy!
