Changes in Attitude
Workaholic Allie Thompson suddenly finds her biological clock stirring up maternal obsessions in the simmering Southern California heat. Only one thing is missing—the right man. Living in "date drought" conditions, Allie goes cyber shopping for paternal insemination and sets off a hilarious chain of events. Her one wish? Allie wants the father to have a PH factor: Parrot Head genes. Allie has more help than she needs from best friend Soozi, a married martyr and full-time mom, and business assistant Gillian Nation, in his gay perfection, who dreams of filling Allie’s corporate high heels one day. Early pregnancy releases intoxicating hormone levels, sending Allie’s libido into full power, and men come out of the woodwork with romantic interest. One in particular, Jack—a bumbling charmer—proves persistent. Great, Allie meets Mr. Right after she’s pregnant. The lively tangle of characters and friends, with a Jimmy Buffett soundtrack, find themselves changing course and attitudes in this lively debut novel.
