Publisher's Summary

The Nanny Diaries meets The Wedding Planner in this smart, dishy novel from the author of Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives - featuring a woman who runs San Francisco’s premier baby-planning company and the mommies-to-be who seek out her services.

Katie Johnson may make her living consulting with new moms on the latest, greatest baby gadgets no parent should be without, or which mommy meet-ups are the most socially desirable, or whether melon truly is the new black, but the success of her marriage to her husband, Alex, depends on controlling her own urges toward motherhood.

He's adamant that they stay childless. Sure, Katie understands that he's upset over the fact that his out-of-town ex-wife rarely lets him see their 10-year-old son, Peter. But living vicariously through her anxious clients and her twin sisters' precocious children only makes Katie resent his stance more deeply.

While helping a new client - Seth Harris, a high-tech entrepreneur who must raise Sadie, his newborn daughter, as a single parent after the tragic death of his wife in childbirth - maneuver the bittersweet journey from mourning husband and reticent father to loving dad, Katie’s own ideals about love, marriage, and motherhood are put to the test as she learns one very important lesson about family: How we nurture is the true nature of love.

    "Narrator Needs Work"

    The story was engaging and interesting but I constantly found myself wishing I bought the book instead of the audio book. The narrator has an awful habit of taking large breaths right into the microphone, often in the middle of sentences. It can really pull the listener right out of the story. Additionally, it really isn't that difficult to pronounce Geiger counter!
