Some people can’t wait to have babies. They’re ready for it—with their perfect lives and their pregnancy glow…
Poppy Adams doesn’t have a perfect life, and she wasn’t ready for the positive test. An unexpected baby—Poppy’s unexpected baby—won’t exactly have her family doing cartwheels. But she’s making the right choice.
Poppy’s totally got this. She just needs a little encouragement, and a knitting group is the perfect place to start. Baby blankets, booties, tiny little hats—small steps toward her new life. But she feels like she’s already dropped a stitch when she discovers the knitting group is led by the charismatic Rhiannon.
It’s not exactly a great time to meet the woman who might just be the love of her life. While the group easily shuffles around to make room for Poppy, it’s not so easy fitting her life and Rhiannon’s together. With the weeks counting down until her baby arrives, Poppy’s going to have to decide for herself what truly makes a family.
Carina Adores is home to romantic love stories where LGBTQ+ characters find their happily-ever-afters.
About the author
Hettie Bell grew up in small towns in New Brunswick and British Columbia, and now lives outside Edmonton with her family. She first fell for Highland historicals as a preteen, and that love deepened as the romance genre grew more diverse and queer. A proud bisexual woman, she’s honored to write all the happy endings she never thought she’d get to read. When she’s not writing, she's knitting one of at least three projects she has on her needles at any given time.
"Poppy’s strong, authentic persona easily carries the story. Her confidence as a plus-size bisexual woman is noteworthy, and the way she struggles with how others, particularly her family, perceive and judge various facets of her identity and life is realistic and relatable. ” --Booklist
