eBooks of the Month Family Drama Relationship Stories

LoveReading View on Special Delivery

Not many novels tackle surrogacy and especially not in a romantic comedy setting but this works brilliantly. When Ally agrees to act as surrogate to her sister the pregnancy helps to highlight the fragile state that all the family relationships have reached. Tensions mount, tempers flare and hearts are being wrenched in all directions. Some decisions in life should not be taken too lightly but then in this case perhaps doing just that makes everything work out for the best. Another great read from Zoe Barnes.

Special Delivery Synopsis

Ally is happily married to Luke. But she and her sister Miranda couldn't be more different. While Ally has four children, Miranda is child-free. Ally is shocked when Miranda asks her if she'll help provide the one thing that is missing from her perfect life: a baby. Can she really have a baby and hand it over to someone else...?
