This book was AMAZING It has plot twists and a bit of sadness This is one of my favorite books and I highly recommend it. I have had this book on my to read shelf for five years I know, that s a ridiculously long time to have a book on the shelf waiting to be read.The thing is that the cover is just not eye catching When you hear Don t judge a book by its cover you think please, if the author approves a cover like that the book can t be good Well, this book is one that the cover does not define the story Whitney Gaskell is not a well known author I stumbled across her while I was filing other books n my st I have had this book on my to read shelf for five years I know, that s a ridiculously long time to have

Since then I have read her first seven books and have loved them all.When You Least Expect It is a story about a couple who wants a child so bad they have spent everything they have to try to get pregnant After every attempt has failed they meet a young girl who finds herself pregnant and not wanting to keep the baby They all three form a relationship and set up all the legal guidelines foe adoption Once the baby is born a whole series of events take place that will keep you guessing WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT started out lukewarm and never really heated up The premise, an infertile couple finds a down on her luck pregnant woman and takes her in with the intention of adopting her baby, is one that should provide a treasure trove of issues to deal with Instead, however, the conflict presented here was easily resolved.What detracted most from the story, for me, was the cast of characters From India to Jeremy to Lainey to Jeremy s brother and sister in law, I found them all on WHEN

characters From India to Jeremy to Lainey to Jeremy s brother and sister in law, I found them all one dimensional and unbelievable I couldn t understand why Lainey would be so willing to give her baby up for adoption, though I realize it s a choice women make daily I don t judge her for her choice I just didn t understand why she made that choice I also found Jeremy s brother and sister in law to be beyond annoying, though I suspect they were deliberately crafted that way I never warmed up to any of the characters, and as a result, I didn t really care about the outcome.Had this been written by a lesser author, I might have been willing to give the storyof a pass, but Gaskell s previous books have all been homeruns, while I feel like this one was just phoned in WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT was a real disappointment and much less than I have come to expect from Whitney Gaskell.Originally posted on romancereaderatheart.com From the outside looking in, India and Jeremy appear to have it
