Milked by Lisa Doyle

By and large, Amanda Keane makes pretty good decisions. Okay, she might not

have the best taste in men, but she’s got great friends, a good job, and an

independent spirit. That is, until her 30th birthday ushers in a whirlwind romance

with a sexy Irish musician who leaves her, not at the altar as she imagined, but

accidentally pregnant. And when he disappears, she’s downsized out of a job,

her apartment is robbed, and lapsed health insurance coverage leaves her with a

C-section to pay for, Amanda is launched headfirst into the life of a broke single

mom. But her friend and uber successful ob-gyn, Joy, clues her in to an unlikely

temp position with one of Chicago’s celebrity elite that just may be the answer to

all her woes. Or could it be just the beginning?

It’s with serious trepidation that Amanda embarks on her surprisingly lucrative

new career: underground wet nurse to the offspring of Chi-town’s rich and

famous. Amanda must quickly understand how to live at the whims and mercy of

the one percent as she deals with the irony of nursing – and loving – someone

else’s child, while still making ends meet for her own daughter. And then there’s

Cute Daycare Dad (aka Dan), who’s obviously interested in her. But can she

afford to tell him what she really does for a living? Is her new job (something she

thought went out with the 19th century) a shameful thing? Just another way of

selling her body? Or does it have something to teach her after all?

A novel of motherhood, its many demands, and all the little triumphs along the

way, MILKED is a warm and witty debut about making tough choices and

traveling the roundabout road to happiness.
