Meredith Moore is the perfect continuity girl. An on-set script supervisor, she is the error catcher, the one who makes sure every take matches seamlessly with the one that came before it. But when Meredith wakes up on her 35th birthday with a sudden acute yearning for a baby, her personal sense of continuity is thrown into flux. Determined not to marry, she impulsively flees humdrum Canada and heads to London to reunite with her notoriously eccentric mother, Irma, and accept a job on a famous producer's film. Her covert plan: find a man with good genes, seduce him, and have a child--all without him knowing, of course. But in her quest to become pregnant on her own terms, she will accidentally discover a web of secrets that will change the way she envisions both her professional life and the nature of love.

About the Author:

LEAH MCLAREN lives in Toronto and
Grafton, Ontario.

From Publishers Weekly:

Canadian journalist McLaren's debut novel is the witty, down-to-earth story of Meredith Moore, a tinseltown toiler whose personal life is anything but perfect. In charge of making sure the placement and number of everything from cigarettes to ice cubes is continuous from scene to scene, Meredith's professional eye for perfection doesn't extend to her personal life. At 35, she is a self-proclaimed disaster area. After a visit to gynecologist Dr. Joe Veil, Meredith decides her biological clock has ticked long enough. After walking off the set of her latest film, Meredith yields to her eccentric poetess mother's pleas and returns to her native London. Joined by her best friend, Mish, Meredith starts work on a new film and sets out to satisfy her maternal pangs by finding a man to father her child. Meredith encounters an alcoholic falconer, a sadistic artist and a mysterious millionaire director as she tries to balance her desire for a child with her yearning for real romance. Despite a potentially clichéd plot, McLaren's writing is crisp and her characters are surprisingly fresh, resulting in a novel that celebrates breaking away from the expected.
