Three Girls and a Baby (Three Girls #1)

Three Girls and a Baby


Ginny McKensie's life is spiraling out of control. 

Finished with college, she should have been planning her wedding. After all, Ginny and Josh were made for each other—everyone said so. Except the love of her life didn't agree. 

Now Ginny is back in her hometown, unwillingly single, and stuck in a dead-end job. When she discovers she's pregnant, Ginny is convinced her life is ending. Instead of planning a future with Josh, she's learning the truth about morning sickness, juggling bills, and seeing just how far designer jeans can stretch.

Her life-plan never included dating again (not even with her too-hot new boss), or being a single mother at 23. Now, with the help of her best friends, Annie and Jen, Ginny must try to re-imagine—and rebuild—a life she never wanted. (Summary and book cover courtesy of


A first I wasn’t sure I was a big fan of Ginny, but I started to like her more as she grew up and matured throughout the book.  Throughout the story, Ginny learns to manage herself and her fast-approaching motherhood with humor and some good friends that help her “snap out of it” on multiple occasions.  There are, of course, additional complications in a budding romance and the one who got away.  Once I realized Josh could be back in the picture to some degree, I was fascinated to see how the author would bring it all together – no spoilers!

This is a story that is ultimately about true friendship and love above all things.  The friendship among the girls was inspirational and wonderful, I found myself calling up all my girlfriends after finishing it!  I’d definitely recommend this for a beach read.

Rating: 4 stars!
