Positively Yours (2009)

Beth Prendergast has never had much luck in love, despite her good looks and high-flying job at Burlington Stockbrokers - that is, until Tom Maloney appears. Her boss is exactly the man Beth has wanted in her life - charming, successful, knowledgeable and proud of who she is, rather than being too concerned with their own ego like other men. However, when she discovers she's pregnant, Tom begins to avoid her, leaving her to take up the responsibility alone. For Grace Miller, ever since she agreed to marry Ethan, she decided to let go of her Irish past and embrace the American way of life. But when Ethan is asked to oversee the firm in Ireland, Grace starts to worry about being back in her hometown. Interior designer Erin Delaney is leading a happy married life with her supportive and loving husband John. All that's missing is a baby. But her desperate attempts to start a family take a toll on her work, and even her marriage. This book details the struggles each women faces in her life, especially in regards to how they deal with motherhood and the changes that accompany it. An enjoyable and light read, this serves as a great book to delight and inspire the many new mothers who are embracing pregnancy. (XT)

Are You Ready? (2008)

As Dubliners Ali, Molly, Ben and Sarah prepare to leave their 20s behind, it's time for them to move on with their lives. Solicitor Ali needs to decide whether she's ready to marry Robin; Molly has taken the plunge on the job front but as she builds her catering experience, her relationship with boyfriend Luke seems to be going off the boil. Meanwhile freelance journalist Ben needs to move out of his parents' home; while Sarah needs more time for her art and to find a partner. With very short chapters that switch from one character to another, this tale about experiencing growing-up angst when you should already be grown up is let down by its stilted dialogue.
