Whitney Gaskell grew up in Syracuse, New York. A graduate of Tulane Law School, she worked for several years as a reluctant lawyer before writing her first novel, Pushing 30, followed by True Love (and Other Lies), She, Myself & I, and Testing Kate. She lives in Stuart, Florida, with her husband and son, and is at work on her next novel.
Travel writer Claire has kissed enough frogs (snakes and toads) to know, without a shadow of a doubt, that fate, love at first sight and 'The One' do not exist. So when she ends up sitting next to sexy American ex-pat, Jack, on a flight from New York to London and he asks her out, she figures there must be a catch. Or maybe after years of dating disasters and bozo boyfriends, Claire has finally met the man of her dreams. But just as she's about to start believing in destiny, Claire discovers that someone else got to Jack first, and she can't believe who it is...
Praised for her "e;refreshingly real"e; novels, Whitney Gaskell delivers a warm and witty story of four women coping with the challenges of motherhood, men, and each other. With a son in his Terrible Twos, divorced working mother Anna is too busy to reenter the world of dating, no matter how expertly her new admirer woos her. Grace has three beautiful daughters and the perfect husband, but she's increasingly obsessed with her weight. Juliet wants to make partner at her law firm while her husband stays home with their twins, but at the office, Juliet is finding more than work to occupy her. When Chloe gives birth, her husband seems indifferent to parenting. Overwhelmed, Chloe slips back into a nasty habit she thought she'd overcome. Filled with humor and charm, Mommy Tracked illuminates four friends, their intertwining lives, and their joys and mistakes along the way.
