She thinks it's menopause, turns out it's pregnancy. How does Laurel and her husband (and their grown kids) handle a do-over when they thought they were entering the "next phase"? Very nicely done, some good subplots.

From the back cover:
By the way, did you know you're pregnant?
Eight tiny words, but strung together in one sentence...they are destined to destroy life as Laurel Mitchell knows it. For after twenty -five years of wedlock and three grown children, starting over with the diaper-and-formula scene is...inconceivable.
Apparently not. Now her sweetly snoozing marriage is frantically adjusting to a most unexpected wake-up call. And to the new man in her life-her husband, Jason. Recently devoted to working long hours and planning the perfect road trip, he's suddenly become impossibly sexy, affectionate and overprotective.
And between the tears (hers) and the terror (his) they're waiting for a bundle of joy in pink (yes, pink!) that's already proving life's most unexpected gifts are the best.
