I got this one a while back and it was excellent! About a 3rd of
the book, with great descriptions that are quite believable and
I guess no one added it to the list! So here, courtesy of TG
collector's message, is a fine story to add to your collection!
NEW YEARS BABY'S
3 story anthology. Book contains the story "Blame it on the Baby"
by Jennifer Archer
"How many of you who have been pregnant wished that, just for
awhile, that your partner could experience it first hand? That
would show him.
In this story, Tory Beecham-Todd is fed up with being taken for
granted. When will she have the time to accomplish her goals and
live her dreams? It seems her husband Dillon has it easy. He gets
to have one job--managing a restaurant--while she is a college
student, part-time law clerk and full time wife and mother to their
daughter with another child on the way. Now, his desire to buy into
the restaurant business threatens her desire to enter law school.
How could he even consider this without realizing what she needs is
a little help? She wished Dillon could realize what it was like for
She gets her wish when by a quirk of fate, she and Dillon switch
places! He realizes what she deals with day to day, but Tory also
comes to realize that Dillon's life isn't all she thought it was
Ms. Archer tells a story with a strong moral, while giving us some
laugh out loud reading! The unique style is one to look for in the
future. At first I thought Dillon's reaction was a little
hysterical, but upon reflection, I believe this is more than likely
how a guy would react to the situation. The fantasy of having your
mate fill your shoes and actually understand things from your point
of view is wonderful! And wouldn't anyone love the chance to try to
see what makes a man tick."
