I really enjoy this series. After coming together for a research study (the concept behind "Getting To Mr. Right"), four women formed a close friendship, and each novella since then features one of them. Their stories go well beyond romance, and instead dive into real-life issues like chronic disease, betrayal, and--in The Longest Nine Months--a complicated pregnancy in which the husband is not on board. The issue of abortion is a delicate one, and the topic is handled well in this novella. The ...more

Carol Balawyder's The Longest Nine Months (2017) starts with a million dollar question, one every woman I know has faced at least once: Is my life going as I wish it would? Forty-two-year-old Campbell Jones, at the top of her career as a therapist, courageously arrives at the answer I had always wanted to: I quit!! And then, she moves on, taking the steps required to make that choice a reality despite detractors, the most painful being her husband, Chand. Chand doesn’t like change so treats Camp ...more

Carol’s book is a twist on the normal romantic books as in this novella she explores life for Campbell and her husband Chand a few years after their marriage.

The happy news becomes one that threatens to devastate her marriage to Chand as he withdraws further from her upon realising the problems of the pregnancy and the

A wonderful last book to the - Getting to Mr. Right series. This book takes us into the marriage between Campbell and her husband Chand and gives us reasons to pause and reflect on how we would handle the news if we found out our unborn child may be born with a birth defect.

We don't often take into consideration what's involved with the choices parents must make when faced with consequential decisions. In this story, a mother's love for her unborn child champions any challenges she'll have to fa

A satisfying ending. That's what I like most about Carol's stories. Not only this one but the other books in this series. Carol is an expert at writing engrossing stories that are full of believable characters and challenging story situations and did I already mention, emotionally satisfying endings? Her stories present characters in all age groups and include cultural references that add interest and freshness. I am so happy to have discovered her line of books and I encourage you to buy "The L ...more

I first came to study Early Childhood Education at McGill. It was a lonely time for me. Away from home for the first time. My parents didn’t believe in summer camps.

I didn’t like teaching kindergarten. All that discipline and yelling and screaming all at o
