From NetGalley:
Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back. The Wife Project is complete, and Don and Rosie are happily married and living in New York. But they’re about to face a new challenge because— surprise!—Rosie is pregnant.

Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he’s left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie.

As Don tries to schedule time for pregnancy research, getting Gene and Claudia to reconcile, servicing the industrial refrigeration unit that occupies half his apartment, helping Dave the Baseball Fan save his business, and staying on the right side of Lydia the social worker, he almost misses the biggest problem of all: he might lose Rosie when she needs him the most.

I have mixed feelings about this book.  I really liked Don and all his efforts, but I did not like Rosie at all.  She rubbed me the wrong way.  I also didn't like some of the events that took place against Don.  This was not a pleasant read for me.

Thoughts of Joy

My thanks go to Simon & Schuster & NetGalley for providing me with this eGalley.

    1. Les ~ I thought TRP was good, but not great. This one was very off-putting. I didn't like how Don was treated at all!

    1. Trish ~ I rated it a 3.5/5 (good). I like the first half better than the second.

  4. I liked the first one, but I haven't heard anything good about this one so I'll probably skip it.
