Becky Brandon's life is blooming. She's working at London's newest big store, The Look, house-hunting with husband Luke (her secret wish is a Shoe Room) . . . "and" she's pregnant. She couldn t be more overjoyed especially after discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery and the latest stroller to top-of-the-line medical care.
But when the must-have celebrity obstetrician Becky's been so desperate to see turns out to be Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble. She's shopping for two . . . but are there three in her marriage?
