We have reached the end of the blog tour for ‘Maybe Baby’ by Carol Thomas, where I will be sharing a review for my stop on the tour. Many thanks to RaRaResources for the blog tour invite and ARC.
Just when you thought you had it all worked out …
Best friends Lisa and Felicity think – maybe, just maybe – they finally have everything sorted out in their lives.
Lisa is in a happy relationship with her old flame, and busy mum Felicity has managed to reignite the passion with her husband, Pete after a romantic getaway.
But when Lisa walks in on a half-naked woman in her boyfriend’s flat and Felicity is left reeling from a shocking discovery, it becomes clear that life is nothing but full of surprises …
What does TWG think?
If you’ve read Carol Thomas’ previous novel, ‘The Purrfect Pet Sitter’, you might find that you’ll be recognising one or two of the characters in this book! That’s right, Lisa and her gang of furry friends are back! I do believe that this can be read as a standalone as the author explains any references to the previous book, so don’t worry too much if you haven’t read it yet.
Once again I found the storyline very hard to get into at first. There wasn’t the immediate hook that I would have hoped for, but seeing as the same thing happened with book one and I ended up really enjoying it, I decided to bide my time and hope that Lisa and Felicity were going to do more than a job along the prom.
And they did! After several chapters of being unsure, I was able to lose myself in the drama surrounding the not so mysterious woman who popped up in Lisa’s boyfriends flat, as well as the drama with Felicity’s knife tongue MIL, Sue. Plus, Felicity’s kids had me in hysterics – out the mouth of babes 100%. Brilliant.
The further into the book I got, the more I fell in sync with what was going on – there are a lot of surprises!
‘Maybe Baby’ does what it says on the tin, so to speak, and I adored watching that theme flourish throughout the book. Obviously I can’t say too much but the happiness and joy was evident, pouring out of the characters like a waterfall. I’m no softie yet even I found myself getting a little emosh!
A joyful, lighthearted and uber touching read – even my cheeks hurt from smiling so much!
