The Baby Planner
[2011, Simon & Schuster]

“Brown takes baby mania to its illogical, hysterical extreme in this bubbly romp….But what begins as a light foray into Bugaboo country turns into something bigger than a satire of status-obsessed Bay Area yummy mummies as Brown takes a dark look at the fears of parenthood and family, with Katie’s heartbreaking longing for a child unveiling a disturbing reality about her marriage and family. Still, the message from the somber realities is one full of hope: love makes a family, commitment keeps it together.” –Publishers Weekly

[2010, Simon & Schuster]

“Josie Brown’s writing is whip-smart as well as wickedly funny, and just as you are enjoying the ride she takes you on, she shatters your heart with her insight into modern lives.” –Tatjana Soli, New York Times bestselling author and 2011 recipient of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction for The Lotus Eaters

“Already touted as the perfect summer beach read, this character driven (sometimes steamy) book can best be described as the offspring of an affair between Desperate Housewives and a Jennifer Weiner novel….A quick look into the sometimes catty world of wealth where priorities get shifted, friendships get broken and marriages, like their mansions, get rearranged. It was light and fluffy (with some excellent dialogue.)…” —

“I loved it! Josie Brown captures the highs and lows of love, lust and marriage with heartwrenching pathos. I’m recommending it to all my friends as the perfect beach read!” — Lisa Rinna, acatress, and author of the novel Starlit
