review: then came you.

Then Came You (aff) is the latest from chick lit author Jennifer Weiner (In Her Shoes, Good In Bed) that centers around the stories of four seemingly independent characters while tackling the controversial topics of egg donation and surrogacy.

Jules is a college senior on a full ride scholarship at Princeton with an alcoholic father.  Annie is in her late twenties, married, and mother of two young boys.  India completely reinvented herself and is now a successful publicist married to the extremely wealthy, yet considerably older, Marcus Croft.  Bettina is Marcus’ 20-something daughter and skeptical of India’s true motives for marrying her father.

When Bettina hires a private investigator to track down India’s true identity, the results bring chaos into each of these women’s lives.

In a Jodi Picout-esque style, the story alternates between the viewpoints of each of these women.  Throughout the course of the book, these seemingly unrelated lives come together as each character faces her shares of happiness and heartbreak, love and loss.

The first fifty or so pages felt a bit slow as Weiner introduced each of the main characters, but once the pace picked up, I had a hard time putting the book down!  There is not often a book I find myself thinking about days after I finished reading, but this one did.

I’ve read a few of her other books and enjoyed them. Very entertaining.
Glad you liked this one, next time I need a book for an airplane, I may try it!
