Publisher's Summary

When Becky Stokes learned that she couldn't have children, she was devastated. Doctors said corrective surgery could endanger her life and, after thumbing down several other options, she and her husband decided to use a surrogate to produce a child. After the papers were signed, however, nobody, including Becky, could have dreamed what happened next! A story of infidelity and just desserts!

Excellent Short Story

Short stories are more difficult to write than novels (or any other longer form of written material) and John Jones successfully spins a tale of love, betrayal, and revenge in less than half an hour - a truly impressive feat. It's hard to say more without spoiling the plot but I would recommend this story to just about anyone - it's worthy across genres. The narration itself was good but the quality of the narration was not the best.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

A match made in heaven. Until it's not

Any additional comments?

This story makes full use of its short duration; it moves fast. You quickly get to know the characters then you run headlong into the main conflict of her infertility and what the couple is willing to do to have a child. It's hard to comment more about the plot without giving away its several twists and turns. Suffice it to say I enjoyed each one.

Great story arc. Although it was fast, it surprisingly didn't feel rushed; it was just an easy story to tell quickly.

I really liked the setting. The small town 1960s south felt very specific even without a lot of details. It all just felt right somehow.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
