Trig and Karrie have a great relationship and Trig wants it to stay that way. She has never wanted kids but when Karrie gets pregnant from a donor on the first attempt she feels backed into a corner. She hasn’t been able to make her real feelings clear to Karrie and worries that once the baby comes she won’t be a good mother and she’ll be pushed into the background as Karrie gets what she has always wanted. This was a well written story of an ordinary marriage between two women and the problems they face when they haven’t been completely open with each other. I liked Trig and could see where she was coming from. She was scared and felt unable to confide this in Karrie who frankly had a tendency to go cold on anyone who disagreed with her. She was quite single-minded in her goal of having a family. The story dealt with how they work through their differences and it was interesting to see how this developed.
I was given this ARC by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
