New York Times Bestselling Author

Meet Julia, a wildly successful television producer who appears to have the picture-perfect life. Stuck in a loveless relationship with her boyfriend, Mark, Julia thinks a baby is the answer. . . Maeve, on the other hand, is allergic to commitment. But when her no-strings-attached nightlife leads to an unexpected pregnancy, her reaction maybe just as unexpected. And then there's Samantha -- happily married and eager to be the perfect June Cleaver mother. But baby George brings only exhaustion, extra pounds, and marital strife to her once tidy life. Three friends whose lives are suddenly turned upside down by that life-changing event that hangs over the head of every single girl: Motherhood.

From the Inside Flap:

On the heels of her three runaway hits, Bookends, Mr. Maybe, and Jemima J, Jane Green delivers a sparkling, sexy tale about the complexities of modern motherly love.

Bestselling author Jane Green has won the hearts of thousands of readers with her fresh take on single life and the dating jungle. Now in Babyville, she applies her golden touch to the next phase of a girl?s life, in an irresistible new novel about two young women coping with the chimes of their biological clocks, and one independent glamour-girl who tries to tune hers out.

Meet Julia, a wildly successful television producer who appears to have the picture-perfect life. But beneath the surface, things are not as perfect as they seem. Stuck in a loveless relationship with her boyfriend, Mark, Julia thinks a baby is the answer . . . but she may want a baby more than she wants her boyfriend. Will a trip to New York City with a jet-setting friend?and all the glittering energy and eligible men the city brings?help her discover what she really needs?
Maeve, on the other hand, is allergic to commitment. A feisty, red-haired, high-power career girl, she cherishes her ability to do just as she pleases and breaks out in a rash every time she passes a stroller. But when her no-strings-attached nightlife leads to an unexpected pregnancy, her reaction may be just as unexpected.And then there?s Samantha?happily married and eager to be the perfect June Cleaveresque mother. But baby George brings only exhaustion, extra pounds, and marital strife to her once tidy life. Is having an affair with a friend?s incredibly sexy husband the answer?

By turns witty, rollicking, and tender, Babyville isn?t really a story about babies?it?s about three friends whose lives are suddenly turned upside-down by that life-changing event that hangs over the head of every girl: motherhood.
