She refuses to tell the father of the baby that she's pregnant because she decides she wants to keep the baby all to herself, something she reaffirms on a regular basis, even though it's quite clear that he would be a marvelous father. No - no reason other than she just doesn't want to share. Mine! Mine! Mine! She repeatedly and deliberately lies to him about it, and in general treats him quite poorly. She justifies her nasty behavior because she's had two relationships in her life that didn't work out. The woman is 40 years old, never been married, and thinks that two unsuccessful relationships are an anomaly? Get real!
Meanwhile, she's having problems at work with a very competitive colleague. In this case there's no doubt that the colleague is a piece of work herself.Read more ›
After she found out she was pregnant, the most irritating thing of all was page after page of her denying it to Jed, keeping the information from him, and taking about how the baby was hers only. That level of selfishness and immaturity in a woman of her age wasn't humorous in the least.
Then we go on to Lydia and her friends behaving like they were PI's following people, impersonating federal authorities, and taking photos through open windows. Ridiculous.
Jed wasn't even around for a good portion of the book after she found out she was pregnant. Lydia's redeeming qualities were that she was good to her friends and she genuinely seemed to care about Jed's kids. Her redeeming qualities were not enough for me to overcome her behavior surrounding her pregnancy.
I don't even understand why it was necessary to include that whole silliness about the Candy Bar and its magical essence or whatever. If that special feature of the bar was included at the beginning of the book, it didn't stand out enough for me to acknowledge or remember it.
I honestly don't know why Jed would want to waste his time with her. But then again, his character wasn't the type of person to walk away from a child of his. Hence, the statement form Jed to Lydia, "You are not qualified to be a mother".
The storyline ending left you wondering if Jed and Lydia were going to just date, live together, marry, or be together because of sex and their baby. After going through all the rest of the book, I wished the writer would have definitively stated it.
I see there is a trilogy including the next two books in the Candy Bar series. Don't think I want to waste my time.
