Sunday Book Review – The Longest Nine Months by Carol Balawyder

Sunday Book Review


Book reviews by D.G. Kaye

I recently finished reading Carol Balawyder’sThe Longest Nine Months, and thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I have all of Carol’s books. This book is the last of the books in the Getting to Mr. Right series. As in all Carol’s books, she brings believable characters to her stories with issues that women can relate to. Also, this book is a wonderful standalone read. You don’t have to have read previous books to get into the story. I highly recommend Carol’s books if you enjoy Women’s Fiction.

In Getting to Mr. Right, Campbell debunked the Prince Charming myth, only to meet a special man who turned all her assumptions upside down.
Now she’s married to Chand..
But Happily-Ever-After turns out to be another illusion.
Campbell deals with job burnout and struggles to find her place in the world. An unexpected pregnancy and its complications undermine her relationship with Chand and take her to a difficult crossroad. No matter which way she decides to go, nothing will ever be the same!


My 5 Star Review:

A wonderful last book to the – Getting to Mr. Right series. This book takes us into the marriage between Campbell and her husband Chand and gives us reasons to pause and reflect on how we would handle the news if we found out our unborn child may be born with a birth defect.

We don’t often take into consideration what’s involved with the choices parents must make when faced with consequential decisions. In this story, a mother’s love for her unborn child champions any challenges she’ll have to face, but we’ll learn about the father’s indecision as well, and why. We’re taken through the rollercoaster of emotions Cam must face about the future of her unborn child and her marriage.

Balawyder has a knack for developing rich characters, in this series friendships were formed by four women who each have a story about her life and love to share. I love how she brought the end together with a most satisfying conclusion – almost unexpected after the dilemmas presented in the story. A beautiful series of books I’ve enjoyed each book and am very much looking forward to Carol’s next book!
