The first Bridget Jones book is one of my favourites- Bridget is flawed and funny but also still realistic enough to be relatable. With each successive Bridget book, the realistic part fades a little more, meaning that Bridget’s Baby is a light, frothy read untethered to story lines that might actually happen.
The plot here is exactly what you would expect if you’ve read the earlier Bridget installments or even just watched the movies, and then extrapolated from the title- within a short span of time Bridget sleeps with both Mark Darcy and Daniel Cleaver and then discovers she is pregnant. She rejects paternity testing during the pregnancy because the needle scares her, and so the novel has Bridget bouncing back and forth between Mark and Daniel until the baby is eventually born. There are lots of amusing moments, but it all gets very silly. If you need a quick, mildly amusing dose of Bridget this will see you through, but that time might be better spent with a reread of the original.
