So happy to have this book available for all. I love, love, love Kit and her family and the bad boy she meets that she shouldn’t like…
This story means so much to me, has lots of topical stuff in it, which makes it great for book clubs, too. We’ve made it easy for my readers in book clubs and reading groups by uploading the Readers Guide to my website. You can download it in an easily-printed PDF. Here are a few sample questions from the Readers Discussion Guide:
In the first chapter, the Brennan family comes together to celebrate Cass’s birthday. When asked to make a wish, Gabi shouted, “Wish for a baby.” Tommy responded with, “We don’t need a baby.” Tears filled Cass’ eyes. Do you think that Tommy was being insensitive with this comment or realistic regarding their history with trying to conceive?
Kit decides to take matters into her own hands to become a mom even though her family wouldn’t approve. Do you think Kit feeling the pressure of her “biological clock” ticking is causing her to go against her morals?
When Kit meets Michael in the bar – his first impression seemed sincere. But by the end of their first date, she begins to realize he’s different then the person she met at the bar in Alameda. How do you think Kit’s previous long-term relationship and her family values prepared her for Michael?
You can download the entire Readers Guide for your book club or reading group right here.

I’m thrilled to be spending this week with so many of my readers on the East Coast, then in Portland, and finally on Sunday, back home in Orange County!
