I probably shouldn’t have liked this as much as I did. The plot was silly, the characters have turned into caricatures, and since it takes place BEFORE the last book that I read in the series, there wasn’t much suspense. But dammit, Jones, I do love you.
8:45 P.M. Realize there have been so many times in my life when have fantasized about going to a scan with Mark or Daniel: just not both at the same time.
Bridget sleeps with Mark & Daniel within the same 3 day period, while using “dolphin-friendly” condoms. She gets pregnant, of course. She refuses the amniocentesis that would identify the father (in her defense, that’s a REALLY big needle), so the book is 9 months of pregnant Bridget trying to keep both men interested and happy. It’s more fun than it sounds.
If you’ve read the one where Mark dies, you can probably guess how this one ends. And like I said, the characters — especially the supporting cast, like the Smug Marrieds — have basically become jokey versions of themselves. But Bridget remains lovable, if not always likable.
