Unexpectedly Expecting - Sophia Labonte (2015)


A getaway with her girlfriends is just what Sandra needs after her live-in boyfriend calls it quits. And it turns out to be even better than she had expected thanks to Thomas, a hunky Brit with whom she spends her final night on the yacht. Sandra has no intention of ever seeing her one-night-stand again. However, a few months later he reappears in her life, having accepted a job in her city. To complicate matters, Sandra is pregnant and, unbeknownst to Thomas, he is the father. And while Sandra thinks perhaps this is a sign that they should be family, Thomas' ex-girlfriend disagrees. Sandra and Thomas are both well-developed characters you can't help but root for. I also appreciated how Labonte succeeded in making Sandra's friendships a central part of the book, rather than focusing solely on romantic relationships. And, of course, Sandra's unconventional situation provides for plenty of humour, making Unexpectedly Expecting an enjoyable read. (LB)
