When Holly and Bret opted for a three-day vacation, Stephanie Yarbourough declined to accompany them. Stephanie was looking forward to giving her best friend these surrogate children. Then her friends died, leaving her nine months pregnant with their babies. Things only get worse when she leaves a pharmacy to see bad boy Sebastian Caine in the parking lot. He'd left town seven years ago, taking her heart with him.
When a parking lot accident brings on labor, Sebastian rushes to Stephanie's aid. An obstetrician, Sebastian delivers her twins in the back of someone's van. Crisis brings resurgence of old feelings as he struggles against the thoughts of the father of the twins. As he rides with the new mother and babies to the hospital, Sebastian finds himself longing for what he lost, little suspecting the truth behind Stephanie's pregnancy. Unfortunately, their past continues to rise up to interfere with their tentative conversations, revealing the depth of the conflict still between them. As he learns more about Stephanie's current situation, however, Sebastian feels compelled to drop in and help. But the question remains if his efforts are enough to make up for seven years and a painful breach of trust.
A tremendously fun beginning makes AN ABUNDANCE OF BABIES by Marie Ferrarella a delightful read. The improbability of old lives reuniting in a parking lot over the birth of twins springs to believable reality in this talented author's hands. Birthing has never been so humorous as this author makes it. And the emotional growth and changes on the part of these marvelous characters as they learn to forget the past and to create a future makes AN ABUNDANCE OF BABIES a must read. Very highly recommended.
