bookshelves: first-reads

Sarah goes home to Houston after she gets fired where she finds that both her hometown and her family have changed while she's been in New York.

Her sister Mackie has given up on trying to have a baby and Sarah decides to be a surrogate for Mackie and her husband. Meanwhile the sisters' father decides to remarry. And while Sarah navigates pregnancy, she fends off Mackie's attempts to play matchmaker with the guy Sarah unceremoniously dumped back in high school and temping at a preservationist society.

I wasn't at all sure what to expect from this book, but I was sucked into it about five pages in. The author's writing style made me feel as if I could have been reading a friend's blog. Had I been reading this in the summer (instead of in the middle of a blizzard), I'd have been content to curl up in a hammock and read this in one sitting.

I'm definitely going to add Ms. Center's other works on my "to read" list.
