Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

What a fun read! I might not be baby-obsessed, but I thought Casey was extremely relatable. I also thought the book she is reading, A Young Woman's Guide to the Joy of Impending Motherhood (written in the 1940's) was hysterical. I loved the tidbits to start off each chapter, and plenty of those had me rolling. Casey's journey was really fun to follow, through all the crazy ups and downs that her story takes us on. At times I thought Casey was bit too...slow to catch on to what was happening, but regardless, I really had a blast reading about her. The supporting cast each have their little moment as well and really added a lot to the overall story. One I would recommend!
*There were some spelling and grammar errors. It wasn't as bad as other books I have read, but they were pretty noticeable.
*I didn't feel invested in any of the characters, so if something bad happened to them in the book, I wouldn't feel a tug on my heartstrings type of feeling. It was almost like maybe they were one-dimensional. We don't really get to see/read the main male lead's thoughts/feelings until the end, so I am not sure if they really love each other, other than the fact that they say they love each other.
There is some cursing in the book, but if you can gloss over that fact then I would highly recommend reading this book. The book reminds me of the movie "The Back-up Plan" except a little different and has a tiny twist, but still the predictable HEA.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would, unless you are bothered by cursing or the slightest grammatical or spelling errors, but I feel like you would be missing out.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
I thought this story was very interesting, and I like that it broached the subject of artificial insemination, not something you often read about in novels. It was very interesting to read about how Casey came to that decision, and the reactions she received from her loved ones. I also really liked the setting of where Casey lived. She lived in a large house with three of her friends, and it sounded like quite a fun set up to me! The characters were strong, with very distinct personalities. I felt strong reactions to several of them, particularly her self-centered, soon to be married friend, Brit (she was so rude!). All of this said, there were a lot of things I really enjoyed about this novel!
One downside was that it was somewhat slow moving for me. I think it felt that way because I had a hard time relating to Casey and this story. While I plan on having babies of my own someday, I’m not yet at the stage where Casey is, who is quite desperate to get pregnant and right now. I think if I had been at that stage in my life, I would have enjoyed this novel better. I’m definitely going to pass this on to my pregnant sister-in-law next – I think she’ll love it because she will totally be able to relate to Casey! Holly Kerr is definitely a talented writer, and even though I didn’t click 100% with this particular story, I will definitely read whatever else she writes!

Baby! It’s all Casey has thought about for years. She wants a baby. She obsesses over each man she meets, comparing him to her criteria for a father to her child.
Baby? In her single-mindedness, Casey makes a decision to try it alone.
Baby!? Then she gets a surprise, or two, or…
This was a fun story to read. I could not put it down. I didn’t want to put it down. It was a quick, easy, quirky read. I can’t decide who I liked best in this book. All of the characters are people I would want as my friends, except maybe for Terri (with an i).
I will definitely read any book created by Ms. Kerr.
