Made it through the first in the series and enjoyed the light tone (and the fact that it still managed to convey a nice faith element), but this one was just ridiculous: the couple who've been married two years but just can't keep their hands off each other, annoying Mitzi (seriously, why is she working? She's tolerable for the last three pages, but still an abrasive, annoying character), and every ridiculous pregnancy cliche known to woman, including, "Oh no, her water just broke!"

"Kim grinned and took a piece of milk chocolate with almonds...[a few pages later]...Kim...took a piece of Dove dark chocolate."

When the writing involves non-action descriptors (as above), the reader is in trouble. Yet, superfluous descriptors are so common in chick-lit that I think many readers, including me, just ignore them in pursuit of the ultimate goal of a "light, fluffy" read.

Unfortunately, I did no

I nice, easy read. Not a page turner, but I appreciate the Christian messages throughout.

This is a wonderful book. I loved the humor throughout the book. I also loved they way the author wove the Lord and faith throughout the book. This is one I will want to read again. i am looking forward to the 3rd book of this series.

Great light easy read continuing on from earlier book titled Whitney Chronicles. Loved readin about character Mitze, great fun. Dissapointed in inaccuracies related to China adoption presented in this book. To the average reader, am sure its no big deal. However, being knee deep in that process, I noticed a lot that wasn't quite right. However, I am grateful to see books coming out dealing not only with women giving birth, but creating families through adoption.

This book was a quick, easy read. I did like the colorful character Mitzy and the funny "letters" from the main character, Whitney's, cat Mr. Tibbles. I gave the book two stars because some parts, like Mitzy having triplets (spoiler--sorry!) were hard to believe and most of the references to their pregnancies were about clothes, shopping, and getting fat.

Kind of a weird book--the story was fine--and completely clean-- but dull. The climax was anti-climatic. But, sure, there were some funny parts. It seemed like the author was trying to be important and funny and friendly...and trying to hard. Oh, and it a Christian book, and all the lingo was...odd.

liked the book a good read was hard to put down, i agree i liked the cat's tid bits but hated how they waited half way through the book to start doing them. I just had a baby 4 months ago so i thought this was a cute book to read. had a bunch of funny parts.

Cute story loved how it showed the different aspects of becoming a mom the ups and downs and all. the little blurbs from the cats were cheesy especially since they started part way in . Overall a good summer read.

I found this much, much better than The Whitney Chronicles. the story moved better, and was easier to digest. seems like their may be another book coming eventually, maybe. :)

Yet another book to add to my reasons for being a Judy Baer fan. As usual per her novels, the full cast of characters is likeable and often quirky.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself!

As excited as I was to get back into these characters, the story took a long time to develop. Regardless, I enjoyed reading an easy book. Great poolside book.

Didn't really talk much about her experiences with pregnancy. A little heavy-handed with the Christian messages, and I'm Christian, so that's saying something.

I loved this book! It had me wanting to have another baby even though I just had twins 7 months ago! Could definitely read this book again sometime!

I enjoy Judy Baer. Nice light end of the day type reading. Take me out of my own everyday life into someone else's world for a while kind of stuff.

Very light reading. Started it, got 45 pages in and skipped to the last third. Not a favorite but compelling enough toward the end to read through.

This is great Christian Chic-lit. It was a fast read and not overbearing with a great plot and an inspirational message. I adored it!

I love these Judy Baer books. They are very easy, quick reads and most of them are set in the Twin Cities.

aka Judy Kaye

Judy Baer was born and grew up on a farm on the prairies of North Dakota, USA. An only child, she spent most of her days with imaginary people-either those she read about or those she made up in her head. Her most ambitious conjuring did not succeed, however. She kept a clean stall with hay and oats for the horse she imagined would come but unfortunately, it never did. As an adult, ho
