As the chics who started the chic-lit trend get older, so too does their subject matter. This lovely writer is now into book number seven and tackles the fear of committing to a baby, the girl’s fear! Nice one.

Every bride is entitled to some pre-wedding jitters. And what girl wouldn’t think twice about marriage when her fiancé gets his eyebrows shaved off just in time to look horrendous for the photographs . . . But what if it’s not the ceremony that freaks you out but the happy ever after? Heidi Savage is wondering whether she can really forsake all others for macho, beer-swilling Ed. And how can a couple who’ve never even been baby-sitters be ready to start a family of their own? Will the answer come in the form of her ex-boyfriend Steven? Grown-up, gorgeous and good-with-children. Is Heidi’s dilemma simply a case of right shoes, right dress, wrong husband?
