Crystal and Keith desperately wanted children so, knowing the possible dangers to be had in Afghanistan, before Keith was deployed they began the in vitro fertilization process. Keith died overseas and when Crystal went to have the eggs implanted the doctor found cancer. After a long battle Crystal left her friends and embryos behind and joined Keith.
Pia loved Crystal more than anyone and is staggered by Crystal’s death. At least she still has Crystal’s cat to remember her by. Well, until the will is read and Pia learns that she must give up the cat… it’s okay the cat didn’t really like her anyway. Wait a minute.. read that part of the will again.. Crystal left Pia her embryos?
Why would Crystal do something like that? Pia can’t even keep a houseplant alive! The cat hates her!
Everyone who has ever claimed to love Pia has left her – her parents, her boyfriends, and now Crystal!
What will Pia do with embryos?
I really enjoy Susan Mallery books. They’re like slipping into an old comfy shoe. It’s not hilarious. It’s not sleazy. It’s not depressing. It’s funny, and romantic, and sad – it’s a wonderful book.
For me the hardest part about these books is that I know what’s going to happen. The characters are set up in the beginning and they progress to a pre-determined destination. If you don’t enjoy a classic romance with a contemporary feel you won’t enjoy this. There is no murder, no mayham, no paranormal, no magic. Just classic romance.
Grab a comfy chair – preferably by the pool – and read this!
