After reading (some great) but rather dark and intense crime novels I was delighted when Maybe Baby by Carol Thomas landed in my kindle – Thank you Choc Lit and Rachel.
Maybe Baby was a cute, sweet and great big romantic romp of a story. It was fun and also funny at points. Plus, it featured animals. Cute animals. Loving animals. And I do like my romantic fiction to feature a little furry creature. Or at least I do now.
I found Maybe Baby very easy to read and it was well written and paced, it’s the sort of story that you can easily dip in and out of. I liked it. I liked it a lot. I loved all the characters, well at least all the ones the author intended you to love. And I enjoyed the friendship and camaraderie.
The story was cheesy and predictable, but it was exactly what I was in the mood for.
It was the second instalment in a series, of which I hadn’t read the first. And although it can be read as a standalone, I did think I was maybe missing out on some of the finer points about the character’s backstory. I do want to go back and read the first book at some point when I get the chance.
Overall, it was well written, fun and left me smiling at the very happy ending. Who doesn’t love a happy ever after?
I would certainly choose to read more by the Carol Thomas in the future.
I received a copy of Maybe Baby by Carol Thomas from the publisher, via the blog tour organiser – The review is my own opinion.
