To be honest: this is my first Laundry Hagbook! Actually my 1,5 as I met Maggie, Neil and the others in the combined Damaged Goods/Laundry Hag book. I was reading it in de DG series but was utterly charmed by Maggie and Neil. I have the other books on my TBR, but I was so curious about baby X I decided to read this one first. You can easily catch up with the story.
Maggie is 9 months pregnant and ready to pop. And then her ex-best friend and neighbor Sylvia beats her by delivering a baby girl when Maggie is still waddling and getting to know her new doula Grace, courtesy of her mother-in-law. Finding a dead body is not making her life easier. Neil wants to protect her and the baby, and Maggie just wants not to be pregnant anymore.
I loved the crossover of the characters from another series! It adds something extra. The reason I love these books is because the characters are so real and flawed. I love Maggie and her family as much as I love the DG gang.
