Before the end of the very first sentence the reader is aware that something has happened that will affect the lives of Grace McAllister and Josh Kingsley.

Never predictable, always surprising, Secret Baby, Surprise Parents is a book that will touch your heart over and over.

As always, I'm loathe to give away any plot details for fear of spoiling the book for future readers. Rest assured that this story is a keeper for both readers and aspiring writers alike.

Liz Fielding has an elusive ingredient

I loved this book, I don't care if it's true to life or if it really would ever happen like this, that's not why I read fiction books! I read them for the stories that are just that - fiction but still pull you in and make it enjoyable and make the characters feel real, a fab read

The subject of surrogacy is always fraught with emotion. When Grace agrees to be surrogate for her sister Phoebe and brother-in-law Michael it is for the best of reasons. The only one not happy is Josh, Michael's brother and the man Grace has been in love with for ten years.

When Phoebe and Michael are killed in an accident it throws everything. Finally Josh and Grace have to confront the issues of what happens with baby Posie and the future which will link them forever through the baby.

A fine, modern romance from Liz Fielding and my first exposure to the author.

I'm astonished at how readable this story is given that its structure is so untraditional. There's no big set up here, no traditional falling-in-love romance, just two people struggling to come to terms with tragedy and dealing with a very present problem.

The story is dialogue driven and Liz Fielding has a fine ear for realistic speech. The characters are well drawn and completely human, and the romance elements subtly

More serious than the other books by this author that I've read, with the characters dealing with high stakes. But very enjoyable as usual. I'm not always keen on stories with babies in them, as they can get too cute for my taste. But that's avoided here. Even the "hero and baby being cute together" scenes are never milked to the point I find them sickly. Some excellent plot twists that made me go "whoa!"
I liked this fairly well. Occasionally something would happen and I'd think where did that come from? Somehow the character would infer something that I would never have figured out from the conversation or situation. The ending was a bit too simplistic for me another big leap really. Not great writing and a little contrived. Still an enjoyable quick read.

Secret Baby, Surprise Parents was a good read that I gave three stars to. It has a good story line with an interesting twist. I really enjoy Liz Fielding's writing. It was a good read that I would recommend you trading.
Cute story with a billionaire and a baby - one of my favorite themes. Nice character development and closure with a nice happily ever after. Look forward to reading other books by this author.
A bit far fetched but I loved this story. It's a fairy tale :)
Story jumped a bit, some places didn't flow. Also some grammatical issues.
