From the author of the smash hits Something Borrowed and Something Blue comes a novel that explores the question: is there ever a deal-breaker when it comes to true love?
First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes . . . a baby carriage? Isn’t that what all women want?
 
Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children after all.
 
This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It’s about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was--and that there is no possible compromise. It’s about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it’s about the things we will do--and won’t do--for love.

Praise for Baby Proof

“Cynthia Nixon is the perfect choice to narrate…[Baby Proof] unfolds like an extended Sex and the City episode and deals with may of the same issues that the series’ beloved TV characters faced during six years of shoe shopping and martini swigging in Manhattan. Nixon succeeds brilliantly...” - Publishers Weekly
 
"The youthful voice of reader Cynthia Nixon, an Emmy winner for her role in Sex and the City, effortlessly conveys complex emotions...Because the themes invite discussion, this is a 'chick' book that both hens and roosters might enjoy together." - Dallas Morning News
 
 
Praise for Something Blue:
 
“Highly entertaining.”—Boston Globe

“Warm and engaging, readers will find themselves cheering for Darcy as she proves people can change in this captivating tale.”—Booklist (starred review)

“A great job of character development and witty repartée.”—Seattle Times
