There's Becky, a plump, sexy chef, with an overworked husband, an adorable baby girl...and the mother-in-law from hell. There's Kelly, an event planner who's trying to cram sixty hours of work into twenty-hour weeks, all while charting her baby's every move on a spreadsheet and hoping that her husband will pull his life together, pull on some pants, and find a job. And there's Ayinde, who is married to Philadelphia's most prominent basketball star, until the combination of new baby and infidelity threatens their marriage. As these three grow closer while attempting to put their lives in order, we also come to know Lia, who returns home to Philadelphia after her life in Los Angeles ends in horrible tragedy. By turns moving, funny, and inspiring, LITTLE EARTHQUAKES is a great big delicious read from a prodigiously talented author.Read Less

very few funny moments
This is an extremely light read. There were very few funny moments. There are some different characters and the book touches on infidelity, unemployment, loss of a child, and a difficult mother in-law. I did not become attached to any of the characters.

A good, easy girl book!
I really enjoyed "Good In Bed" and enjoyed the movie "In Her Shoes". With two good stories I am always a little nervous to try another one with the fear it would be a big let down. I was also reluctant to read a book that had to do with being pregant and having babies (since I have had no, nor will have any experience with the condition). But I was pleasantly surprised. The book I believe is mainly about the bonds women have with each other as they help one another with their problems. I also enjoy the fact that Jennifer Weiner has included attractive plus size women in her books. Not a deep book but a good book for an entertaining read.
