This is the fourth (sorta 3rd) book in 'A Woman Lost' series. There was a book zero added after book 2, And in my opinion this is the best one in the series. Lizzie is still clueless and adorable.Sarah carries for the couple and this leads to the premise of the book. Family. And Lizzie and Sarah's family grows a lot. Great characters, excellent plot and pacing. You could probably get away with reading it as a stand alone, but I would council reading the entire series. Loved it.

As with a previous book in this series, it took me a while to read this one. I set it aside 3 times before finally finishing.

Once again, it was Lizzy who had me dragging my feet. It is odd that this was the case as I really like Lizzy. Her bumbling ineptitude and social awkwardness strike a chord with me. Hmm...perhaps it hits too close to home?

All that being said, I did enjoy the book. I love the dynamics between Lizzy and Sarah. It was heartening to see a gradual change, though by

Ok I retract! This was my favourite in the series…  one word: TWINS!!! Lizzie and Sarah are expecting twins and after a brief melt down, Lizzie is on track to being an amazing supportive wife to Sarah who is carrying.  I was bowled over with Lizzie’s progression. She tries ever so hard and even when the stumbling blocks happen in her awkward and socially inept world, she manages through it with a lot more poise than ever before.

I think Sarah’s growth was more noticeable in this book

What a great series! Lizzie, one of the main characters, is a woman with many flaws. She is clueless, hardheaded and a history geek, I really like her clumsy approach to every situation. An excellent series with great heart-to-heart moments, complex family ties, humor, a relationship with ups and downs and friends who are very straightforward. There is an awesome variety of characters. I can highly recommend this series.

At this point in the series, Lizzie starts to really become endearing. The cluelessness grated me a bit in the beginning but I’m enjoying the story taking off with the supporting cast and really filling in this whole picture of Lizzie’s life with Sara and how her world is expanding.

Lizzie and Sara welcome their first child in this story and to their surprise end up with many more additional family members.

Warning! Lizzie has grown since Book One and sorry to say you will not really get this book if you have not read the first two. To fully appreciate and understand the growth of Lizzie's character or the underlying emotions of the other characters involved you should know the backstories and therefore you should read the first two books before reading this one.

Disclaimer: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

A Family Woman by TB Markinson is the third book in the A Woman Lost series. If you haven’t read the other two books, I recommend doing so before reading this one. You can find her books here. A Family Woman is the latest installment in the journey of love between Lizzie and Sarah. Lizzie and Sarah have just found out they are about to be parents – to twins! As Sarah’s pregnancy progresses, both women realize that f

This novel focuses on Lizzie’s expanding family. She and Sarah discover they’re having twins which throws them both off balance. There is also the expanding of Lizzie’s birth family through various life events. I think we go through at least a year from about 8 months before the birth to the twins’ first Christmas. It all works well; time is delineated by how many months Sarah’s been pregnant in the first half of the novel.

It’s a touching yet humorous novel. Lizzie learns to cope better with he

This is the third instalment (without counting the prequel) of the Woman Lost series. I won’t get tired of saying how magnificent this series is and the reason why is one of my very favourites. Markinson writing is, funny, witty and simply brilliant.

I have enjoyed every book in the series; I love how we have been able to witness Lizzie and Sarah’s growth, personally and as a couple. And it’s something we get to see in this book, as well as more of Lizzie’s quirks. There’s nothing lik

Lizzie is back, and this time she has just a few short months until her pregnant wife gives birth to their twins. Lizzie has never had the greatest relationship with her family and would rather not see them, but Sarah has other plans. Lizzie will become a family woman.

The first half of the book – before the twins arrived – had quite a few sex scenes. They were very interesting to read because they were between two females, but there was quite a bit of it.

I loved how Lizzi

I love the previous books in this series and I received a free copy of this book from the author. I am a sucker for a good series. It is quite a while since I first read them, but I took the time to re-read the earlier stories before digging into this one. I am glad I did and I was very pleased to find I really love this one too.
Lizzie and Sarah are a wonderful couple with an interesting dynamic and this book shows both closure and new beginnings. I am delighted to see that Lizzie is still

When I finished reading the first 3 books I was ready to keeo reading about Lizzie and Sarah, but then I realize that this book was only on kindle and not paperback (I like buying the paperbacks) so I had to wait a couple of months and when I was looking for some books to buy I went to look on amazon and surprise, surprise: it was already on paperback! So I bought it right away and oh boy, my lesbian heart was bursting in joy.

I can't believe the evolution of Lizzie from the prequel t

I have now read and enjoyed this entire series with Lizzie and Sarah. This book starts with Lizzie's anxiety over starting a family and repairing her current family. After Lizzie and Sarah start their family, Lizzie gets more comfortable with their decision, the couple find out they are having twins. I found this book enjoyable to read and was able to finish it in a few sittings.

I have followed this series since the start and I have loved reading each book. This one focuses on Lizzie's stress and anxiety over starting a family with Sarah along with trying to fix the family she already has. Then both her and Sarah get thrown for a loop when they discover that they are expecting twins.
One of the things I really like about these books, along with the others I have read of T.B. Markinson, is that the characters feel real. When reading you get to know them and the pers

Including the prequel, this A Woman Lost,#3 is actually the fourth book in the series, and to get full enjoyment I highly recommend that you read them in the order they were published. By now it may be a while since you last visited the world of Sarah and Lizzie, so you may like to refresh your memory before you delve back into their not quite so straightforward life; I found it helpful. When I got my hands on this book I practically devoured it in one sitting, I couldn’t put it down. I loved it, and i ...more

It wasn’t until the second book A Women Ignored that I finally got Lizzie. Her view on the world can be intriguing and her interactions with others can be very comical.
I normally like the parts of the story that revolve around Lizzie, but in this case I found her interaction with her birth family and associates e.g. Brother, Dad, Tie etc, and the whole story surrounding it, a little bit tedious. Part of the story was for Lizzie to reconnect with her family, but I couldn’t help thinking, why bother?

I loved A Family Woman by T.B. Markinson. This was the next book in the series that I have been enjoying. The characters are great and I love Lizzie, although I think she gets picked upon a bit. I cannot wait to see the next in the series. Lizzie's character is one that I empathize with as my daughter does not get a lot of idioms. Sara and Lizzie do quite well together. I am looking forward to seeing how Lizzie handles teaching.

lizzie and wife sarah are expecting... a little more than they bargained for. as if the suprise of twins wasnt enough now lizzie's practicaly estranged father and brother are reaching out to her with there own drama and secrets. lizzie is a likeable character with relatable problems and feelings. the story is told from her p.o.v. she is smart and clueless, nerdy and adorable. overall very entetaining read with some surprises.

Interesting story about a person who understands and loves no matter what.

Elizabeth and Sarah are better in this third book in understanding that some changes need to take place. Mind you some changes are need to be taken with a bit salt or sugar,depending on your taste. The twins arrive with a surprise group of brand new babysitters. Enjoy!

I loved this story about Sarah and Lizzie . I always feel that Sarah and Maddie are a little hard on Lizzie. The birth of the twins and family becoming closer was nice. Very nice story and well written.

Good read!

I enjoyed following Lizzie from beginning to the third book. Although, this book hit close to home. I don't think I would ever accept a hidden family. I think I would have liked Lizzie reaction to be more like mine, maybe I will get there one day

Fantastic depth of character, wonderful storytelling, and a tremendous sense of humor highlight this third entry in the "A Woman Lost" series. The story comes to a satisfying conclusion, but leaves room for more as well. I would certainly welcome another volume.

I'd say it was a bit uneven, but still an important player in the series with some key events. Certainly ended with me dying to find out what happens next! I like this author best when she offers deeper insight into the character's personalities and motivations.
