REVIEW For A Bump In the Road


Thank you goes out to author Maureen Lipinski for so kindly sending me a copy of her book!!!
TITLE: A Bump in the Road
AUTHOR: Maureen Lipinski
GENRE: Chick Lit
RATING: 4 Stars
This is my kind of chick lit! Event Planner and blogger Clare Finnegan is married and living the life of the "married couple" with hubby Jake. They are happy, in love and free! free! But, life takes an unexpected turn and guess what! there is now a little bump in the road - as they find out that they are expecting their first child.

I knew I would love this one as soon as I read the first sentence "This is why we're never having children", Jake said as he lurched forward in his airplane seat again. I just knew that this book would have the irony and sarcasm that I have come to love in chick lit. I have never been a fan of "all is pretty and cute" and all the characters are serene and perfect! I like my characters flawed and usually, thrown right into the center of some kind of situation they vowed (usually in a drunken stupor) to NEVER get into. Love it.

As you might have guessed this book covers off, through individual diary type entries, all of the events and escapades that Jake and Clare go through as she progressively gets more and more pregnant. Again, author Lipinski does not detail as all "peached and cream" and does not shy away from writing some extremely funny entries as well as using sarcasm and irony as much as possible.

This book is well written and I loved all the characters. I highly suggest it for any fan of chick lit. My only complaint, it felt to me as though the print in my copy was kind of tiny - now I know that I no longer have the same eyes as I did when I was 20! but it was a little tough going at times to read this!

Otherwise, I loved it.
