Newborn Baby For Christmas by Fiona Lowe
A book for the romantics at heart.
This review has been written by guest blogger Rebeca Troubetas as part of our series of reviews featuring this year’s finalists for the Romantic Book of the Year awards. You can find Bec online at @RTroubetas.
Did I enjoy reading this book? Honestly…I wish they make a movie about it. I know that there are a lot of romantic movies out there, but this one, it won my heart.
I chose this book to review because of the title. I knew it was just going to be an awesome read—without knowing much about the author, let alone her writing style. I laughed, cried and really felt each character’s emotions as I was reading.
Okay, so about the book.
Best friends Georgina and Hamish have seen each other through a lot of ups and down. They met at uni while studying to be doctors and have been best friends ever since. I love how they both secretly have wondered about being with the other on an intimate level but have never ever revealed this to each other.
Georgina has always wanted what every girl wants—a man who loves and adores her and to start raising a family. Hamish, on the other hand, is a little player and has admitted that he doesn’t want to settle down—there is a major secret he is keeping from Georgina as to why. Georgina knows her biological clock is ticking and makes the bravest decision of asking her best friend Hamish to be a sperm donor..and the rollercoaster ride begins!
Georgina is forced to spend time with Hamish’s family, which Hamish is not too happy at all about, in case his family, especially his parents, find out that he is the father of Georgina’s baby. Forces of nature keep bringing them together as they realise the truth—love.
Don’t want to ruin the story for those of you who have not read it. Trust me; you will not be disappointed with this book.
Yay or nay?
I would highly recommend this book to all those who are romantics at heart.
