Review by: Jo-Anne Boyko on Dec. 24, 2013 :
I must admit that through the first half of the book I really did not like Ginny. She was only thinking of herself and not about the baby much. She chose to ignore the pregnancy rather than accept it and act responsibly. If it wasn't for her friends telling her what she should be doing, eating, etc. she wouldn't have a clue. I was tired of her constant mopping about Josh not being with her. He left after she told him to and not to contact her again. He did not know she was pregnant and Ginny kept putting off telling him. Again, she was not very mature. I loved her friends Jen and Annie. They were great and fun additions to the story.

Josh was a pretty decent guy and I kind of felt sorry for him when Ginny wouldn't tell him she was pregnant. I didn't really understand why he left Ginny. When I finally got it, then I didn't understand why he had stayed with her for so long. It wasn't until near the end of the book that I realized that Ginny had changed, then their relationship started to make sense. So why did I keep reading? I did really like the story and most of the characters. It made me chuckle and cry a bit so it was entertaining. I thought this book was well written.

Luke was a surprise to me. He was gorgeous and so perfect. I wasn't expecting the way Ginny and Luke's relationship turned out but liked that part.

This was a fun and easy read. The story is a little predictable, I liked the characters and found it entertaining and fun. There was several real laugh0out-loud moments, and the main character showed some growth from beginning to end, which is always nice to see in a book.

Review by: travelr on Nov. 30, 2011 :
This book is definitely not written by nor for a member of my generation. The language was too coarse, and the views of sex far too casual.
However, having said that, the book is well written, and the main character is well-developed and shows growth as she goes through an unexpected pregnancy with the help of her two house-mates but without the support of the father of the baby.

Review by: Margaret (Literary Chanteuse) on Nov. 27, 2011 :
This is a cute and adorable book and just because it has a baby in it. A classic humorous chick lit story with heart break and best friends to see you through. An easy read that left me with a smile!

Review first published on my blog: http://memoriesfrombooks.blogspot.com/2011/11/three-girls-and-baby.html

Three Girls and a Baby is the story of Ginny, who finds herself recovering from a broken relationship and pregnant. The book covers the year from finding out she is pregnant to when the baby is a few months old. It deals with her emotions and the support (or lack of support) from those around her especially her friends and roommates Jen and Annie. In bits and pieces, the book tells about her relationship and how she got to this point in her life.

The book deals with serious topics in a very light hearted manner. Can you be successful in a relationship without being happy with yourself? What are the problems when you make someone else responsible for your happiness? What are some of the challenges of being a single mother? What will people do in the name of love? How far can the bonds of friendship extend? How does having a child change you as a person and your entire life? Sometimes, the treatment of the topics seems a bit too light hearted, but perhaps that goes with the young age of the characters.

The book follows a somewhat predictable story line, but makes for a quick, easy read.

This was an entertaining read and the characters felt pretty true to life, especially the way that Ginny deals with her life and the reasons that she and her boyfriend break up. The relationship of Ginny and her friends was a nice one and it was rewarding to see Ginny get her life together. My only complaint was the amount of cursing.

I enjoyed reading about Ginny and her two best friends. The story follows a year of Ginny's life from college, a broken relationship, moving into a share house with friends and then to top off the year finding out that she would be a Mum. There are a few lows but lots of highs as Ginny's friends stick by her throughout the pregnancy and then through the birth to helping out when Ginny finally returns to work. A nice book about life and good friends.

Review by: rhonda laney on Nov. 10, 2011 :
It's scary to think your alone and having a baby. I enjoyed Ginny and her good friends Annie and Jen. The story kept moving right along and to advance it. Would have little snippets about stage of pregnacy or what the baby should be doing now.
Ginny had a lot of changes the last year, she moved back to her hometown, broke up with longtime boyfriend Josh, graduated collage, moved in with friends from collage. Then finding out on one of those visits with Josh whom she still loved she got pregnant. Ginny did not want to tell him or her parents and kept putting it off until too late. Josh changed his number and moved to a different state with fiance and did not want to see or hear about a baby.
Ginny had to deal with depression over breakup and then fired. Her friends were really their for her as she turned her life around.
I would read more books by Rachel. Liked the dialogs yes some was cheesy but good. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review from librarything.
