In this romantic comedy, Allie plunges into later-in-life maternal obsession taking her two best friends, Soozi and Gillian, with her on an emotional roller coaster. The novel follows Allie’s adventure through cyber-shopping and pee-on-a-stick results of artificial insemination. Men populate a cast of characters including the good, the bad and the gorgeous. We witness Allie and Soozi’s struggles coming to terms with their past while changing courses to the future.


Workaholic Allie Thompson suddenly finds her biological clock stirring up maternal obsessions in the simmering Southern California heat. Only one thing is missing—the right man. Living in “date drought” conditions, Allie goes cyber shopping for paternal insemination and sets off a hilarious chain of events. Her one wish? Allie wants the father to have a PH factor: Parrot Head genes. Allie has more help than she needs from best friend Soozi, a married martyr and full-time mom, and business assistant Gillian Nation, in his gay perfection, who dreams of filling Allie’s corporate high heels one day. Early pregnancy releases intoxicating hormone levels, sending Allie’s libido into full power, and men come out of the woodwork with romantic interest. One in particular, Jack—a bumbling charmer—proves persistent. Great, Allie meets Mr. Right after she’s pregnant. The lively tangle of characters and friends, with a Jimmy Buffett soundtrack playing in the background, find themselves changing course and attitudes in this lively debut novel.
