Nobody's Baby but Mine...

Title: Nobody's Baby But Mine
Author: Susan E Phillips

Book was quite predictable. Even from the start. But it got me going, the genius physics professor Dr. Jane Darlington who desperately wants a baby, but without the commitment of a father, and that won't be easy. Jane's super-intelligence made her feel like a freak when she was growing up, and she's determined to spare her own child that suffering. Which means she must find someone very special to father her child. Someone...well... stupid.

She planned with her neighbour, to bed Cal Bonner, the Chicago Stars' legendary quarterback, who seemed to be the perfect choice. But looks and attitude towards life can be deceiving. A little too late, she then learns that the good ol'boy is a lot smarter than he lets on, and he's not about to be used and abandoned by a brainy baby-mad schemer.

The plot thickens... But predictably funny. I enjoyed the book, I would rate it 6/10.

P.D James- A Certain Justice

P.D. James – A Certain Justice

The theme of this story is the past. Try as you might, it’s always there. Like your shadow, there are times when you can lose sight of it. But trailing along, it always is. Hercule Poirot (I think) said we can always allow for one coincidence but only one. In this case, there are 2. This however, is an acceptable mistake for a brilliantly written story. In my opinion, one of her best. Warning: Parents may be disturbed by this story. Proceed with caution.
