After her job is eliminated, an opportunity falls in her lap and she becomes The Baby Planner. She works closely with the wealthy mothers of her California community. Planning their nurseries, hosting showers, screening nannies, doing everything to make their pending deliveries easier. But in the process, her clock is ticking louder than ever. Will her desire for a baby destroy her marriage? Or will her husband give in and give her the one thing she so desperately wants.
Overall, I really liked this book, but for a good chunk in the middle I had a really hard time liking Katie. Her desperate need for a baby prompts her to do some less than desirable things. I am 35 and my clock is not ticking so loud right now, but I am safe in saying that I would NEVER do what Katie did.
The Baby Planner is a Chick Lit with a unique concept. Like I said, overall I enjoyed the book, and it's characters. I think anyone who has heard the tick of the biological clock will be able to relate to Katie and what she goes through, and will probably even understand why she did what she did.
