Immediate FamilyBook - 2006
A fifteen-year college reunion brings best friends Jay, Franny, Emerson, and Stevie together once more. Jay and Franny have been close for years. Now, at thirty-five, Jay is married with a baby on the way, while Franny is still looking for love in all the wrong places. The only thing she knows for sure is that she wants a baby before it's too late. After she's struck out with all the usual suspects, she uncovers the perfect solution: Why not have Jay father her child? Emerson struggles to keep her head above water as a twice-divorced single mum caring for her dying mother. To help care for her mother, she hires a nurse, a handsome Nigerian named Reggie. Emerson is immediately drawn to him. Unlucky in love, she sees in him the kind of man she should have married. Stevie's just ended a two-year relationship with a man she loves but can't commit to. How can she have faith in marriage and motherhood when her own family is so screwed up? The definition of family takes on new meaning as these lifelong friends face life's challenges together.
