Book & Author Details:
The Best Friend Problem by Maria Ankenman
Publication date: 12th August 2019
Genres: Romantic Comedy
Prudence Carlson has been lucky in life. A fulfilling wedding-planning business run with her girlfriends in Colorado, plus the best guy friend ever in her firefighter bestie Finn. All that’s missing from it is a baby. Luckily, it’s the twenty-first century–Pru can take matters into her own hands. She doesn’t need to find true love to create the future love of her life.
Except all this talk of babies and insemination and…Pru and Finn cross a line they never expected to. Sure, one night of passion won’t change their close friendship. Until Pru goes in for a fertility check-up to find…she’s already pregnant.
As best friends, Pru and Finn have survived college, new jobs, and bad breakups, but can they survive crib shopping, birth classes, and late-night cravings. Especially when Finn has never considered himself even remotely Daddy material?
This was a lazy Saturday morning, one sitting read for me. There are no surprises, really, to the story line – it’s laid out in the blurb after all. So with that said, the key is in the execution – and that was bang on for me.
Both characters were well rounded, and their friendship was believable, as was their chemistry. And so the move to more felt natural, and completely right for the story. And the book just kept on delivering.
A really enjoyable way to pass a couple of hours.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
