Nothing scares Tessa King more than the thought she will never have children. It doesn't matter how good her life is, and it is, it never feels good enough. She has four godchildren and dozens of friends, yet love eludes her. She knows how good a mother she could be, if only she had the chance. And then one terrible day she does, and Tessa learns firsthand that life on the other side of that white picket fence is more complicated than she ever could have imagined.

Heartwarming, funny, and genuine, The Godmother speaks to anyone who has wondered about the next step and reminds us that happily-ever-after is just the beginning of the story.

Tessa King lives the life of a single, devil may care woman in the city, but with six godchildren Tessa begins to feel the need to settle down and begin the life all of her friends seem to be enjoying. In The Godmother Tessa finds that she doesn’t know everything: babies don’t stay babies forever, behind closed doors too many things can go unnoticed, and falling for your best friend isn’t the best idea especially when he is married. This novel comes to life by focusing on the humorous and complicated lives that many modern day women find themselves wandering.

some interesting ideas on marriage and how it works. A good read and not altogether a chick flick.
