This month for the Artful Readers Club I read a real chick lit book called
Three Girls and a Baby by Rachel Schurig
It was a very easy read but that's exactly what I wanted and needed this month.
It's the story of three friends, Ginny, Annie and Jen, who share a house together after they all finish college.
Ginny has a very on/off relationship with her boyfriend, Josh. They had dated all though college and when they broke up her friends took her side and never wanted Ginny to see Josh again.
Well in true chick lit timing, that's when Ginny finds out she is pregnant.
She decides to keep the baby.
But her employers, she's a nanny to 3 children, decide that having an unmarried mother is not what they want their kids to see, so Ginny ends up unemployed as well.
Annie and Jen are her rocks and help her out.
Luckily, Annie has a friend who knows about a job going in a local bookstore which Ginny ends up getting.
Ginny finds love again and everything seems to be going well, until she bumps into Josh's mum at the doctors. Josh's mum is your typical evil mother-in-law and doesn't seem thrilled about becoming a grandma very soon.
Ginny has her beautiful baby, I won't tell you what she has, incase you want to read it.
And slowly her life with the baby sorts itself out and everyone ends up in a happy place, as per all chick lit.
I did really enjoy this book and may get the sequel to read over the summer.
Three Girls and a Wedding.
