** For Nina, the path from singlehood to motherhood was easy. It's knowing what to do once she arrived that was the problem. ** When Nina met Jonathan through the personals, she thought he seemed nice enough. And reliable, definitely reliable. Little did she know that her quest for companionship would lead to an unplanned pregnancy, a new living situation, a fork in her career path and gossipy new-mommy groups.

Trapped in their London home with diapers and homemade baby food (made by Do-the-right-thing Jonathan, of course), Nina craves a little glamour, the odd afternoon out, and -- dare she think it? -- maybe even a sexy dress. When her fashion editor friend needs a baby to fill in for a photo shoot, little Ben's career as a model is launched, and Nina has a nice excuse to get out more. She intends to tell Jonathan -- really she does -- about their son's star turn, but the time is never right, and they've been getting on so well. Of course, it's only a matter of time until her secret is exposed.

In Fiona Gibson's winning year-in-the-life story, Nina steps onto the well-trodden path of new motherhood and flounders hilariously. Gibson's keen eye for observation, sharp ear for dialogue, and brilliant knack for creating realistic, charming characters make her debut novel an unexpected bundle of joy.
