Just curious, is the book "Baby Proof" by Emily Giffin the 3rd book in the "Something Borrowed "and "Something Blue" series? Or is the "Something" books done after "Something Blue" and "Baby Proof" is a whole new story?!?!

Baby Proof is the third book - I haven't read them yet but I have the first one. They're supposed to be really good.

Oh, I just went and read a description of the book but it doesn't seem to have the same characters in it!....

I don't think it's considered a third in the series, because you're right Trisha, it has none of the same characters. Or at least I don't remember them....

Total bummer! I really enjoyed these books and was hoping to read more about the characters from the first 2!

Yeah, you would think with the ending of the second one that Baby Proof would be an add on but it's seperate. Bummer. :(

I'm wondering if Love The One You're With will have any of the previous characters of Giffin's. It comes out in May. :) Wishlist it! =p

I went to emilygiffin.com and this is what the book coming out in May is about..... (Not the same characters either.. maybe we should all write her and tell her to bring back Rachel and Darcy!)

"The New York Times bestselling author of SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING BLUE, and BABY PROOF delivers another captivating, straight-from-the heart novel. This is a story for everyone who has ever wondered: How can I truly love the one I'm with, when I can't forget the one who got away?

Ellen and Andy's marriage doesn't just seem perfect, it is perfect. There is no question how deep their devotion is, and how naturally they bring out the best in each other. But one fateful afternoon, Ellen runs into Leo for the first time in eight years. Leo, the one who brought out the worst in her. Leo, the one who left her heartbroken with no explanation. Leo, the one she could never quite forget. When his reappearance ignites long-dormant emotions, Ellen begins to question whether the life she’s living is the one she's meant to live. LOVE THE ONE YOU'RE WITH is a powerful story about one woman at the crossroads of true love and real life."

This one was a totally separate story as far as I could tell and I didn't enjoy it as much as her first two books.

i do think, somewhere, if i recall correctly, that ethan (from something blue) is mentioned in baby proof. i think that's all there is tying them together.

Baby Proof is not part of her Something Borrowed, Something Blue books.  I still think her first Something Borrowed is the best.  We will have to see how her next one out in May is going to be like.
