Publisher Comments:

Jane Taylor is pregnant. Only, not in the conventional sense. It all began when Jane missed her period. Whether it was the clouds in the sky or a major case of pregnancy envy (this year's concern), Jane doesn't know. She only knows that she told her best male friend, and began to believe it. Until she got her period and realized she never was. Pregnant.
But that brief glimpse into the other world — the world of smiling faces and courteous men — was just too beautiful not to be a part of . . .and so Jane told a little white lie to her live-in boyfriend, and crossed the line. With the help of a pink Magic Marker she closed the gap that separated her from the positively perfect pregos.
Enter Jane's world, one of deception and success, Mr. Wrong and Mr. Right, Nutrition Police and tilted uteruses, baby showers and celebrity obstetricians. As Jane spins closer to her due date, she's got a lot of soul-searching to do — not to mention an appointment with reality . . .

Synopsis:

Jane Taylor gets so caught up believing she's pregnant that she can't live up to the truth when she finds out that there's no bun in the oven. But she is only human, and what woman doesn't want the kind of attention that comes with pregnancy?

JohnLee, December 18, 2012 (view all comments by JohnLee)
A single British woman, working in publishing and on a quest for parenthood �" at first sight, this seems to be yet another book in an endless and repetitive stream of chick-lits, as well as being the ideal tag line for this book. That’s not the case. Through the lies and deceptions of a somewhat needy, calmly selfish and immature young woman, readers are taken on a journey, albeit fraudulent, through the life of a pregnant woman. Baratz-Logsted couches the resultant dramatic change in attitude, in not just the expectant mother herself but also in those around her, in a cuttingly humorous way. The smugness, the mood swings, the showers and the "what to expect.." pregnancy-bible books �" all come to life in the author’s hands. Jane’s charade is simultaneously pathetic - for she craves attention and love more than a child itself - and comical, besides being suspenseful. Acerbic, humorous, honest and unpredictable �" The Thin Pink Line demands understanding without preaching and provides countless hours of gratuitous amusement besides.
