HAPPILY EVER BEFORE charms readers and critics with originality and humor.
"Happily Ever Before" is what would happen if the hit comedies Bridesmaids and Baby Mama had a love child. It tells the story of two sisters and the biggest, most important question anyone has ever been asked..#happilyeverbefore
At a time when a women’s womb has become the subject of great debate, comes HAPPILY EVER BEFORE, a hilarious and touching new novel from actress Melissa Peterman and award winning writer/producer Aimee Pitta that asks the question: “If for some reason I couldn’t carry a child, would you loan me your womb and have my baby?”
HAPPILY EVER BEFORE is best described as the comedic literary love child of the hit film’s Bridesmaids and Baby Mama. It is the story of two sisters, who while watching a Lifetime movie marathon (of course!) make a drunken pact that has more unconventional consequences than anything Lifetime could program.
HAPPILY EVER BEFORE, a fractured fairytale, tells the story of Grace, the free spirit older sister, who promises Clair, her wound-too-tight younger sister, that she’d have her baby, should the need ever arise. But she certainly never thought she’d have to “deliver”.
Now everyone, from Clair’s WASP-y in-laws to Diane, Grace and Clair’s mom, who has put her own life on hold, to Clair’s husband, Henry, who has a compulsive need to give Grace bizarre and overly personal pregnancy gifts, to George, Grace’s best friend who now needs to find a new drinking buddy, are dealing with situations they never dreamed of.
As the sisters are faced with hormonal surges, new romances, and a calcium enriched diet, they are forced to navigate this new family dynamic and test their sisterly love in ways that keep the reader laughing out loud.
Early reviews say The eBook download:
“…is a fractured fairy tale with a bushel of wit and a side of pizzazz. It’s a laugh-out-loud comedy that will keep readers enthralled from the very first page.
“We absolutely love this new book and we think you will too!"
