Thank you to Rachel at https://www.rachelsrandomresources.com/ for organising this tour and to Carol Thomas and Ruby Fiction for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
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 …
I haven’t read the first book in the series so I can honestly say that this novel works well as a stand alone but I’ll be definitely going back to read it.
Lisa has rekindled her romance with her childhood sweetheart Nathan but is hiding a secret from him. Her best friend Felicity has sorted out her love life with her husband Pete and they are finally taking time out from their four children to reignite their love. Both ladies have thier lives sorted until ….
Felicity gets a shock one day that threatens to change everything. Nathan allows an old friend Sam (female) to move into his downstairs flat and Lisa feels too scared to question Nathan about their past together.
Maybe Baby is a well written, mostly light-hearted romance book but also has strong themes of friendship too and does tackle some other important issues.
Lisa and Nathan’s relationship is new and Lisa is quite a vulnerable character. Ms. Thomas puts this across well without making Lisa seem weak of whiny. Although she makes some ‘interesting and questionable’ decisions and assumptions, she’s such a lovely character that it’s easy to forgive her and understand why.
Felicity and Pete are such a brilliant couple. Married with four children and they seem to have it all together. I love the fact that this novel portrays a married couple as still happy and together but having to actually work at their relationship as I think that sums up most strong marriages.
There is also the relationship between Felicity and Lisa, friends from school who seem to confide about everything in each other. I love how friendship is celebrated in this novel and how Carol portrays ‘real-life’ relationships.
This is a heartwarming and cosy romance novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I cannot wait to read more about Lisa and Felicity.
