From the celebrated author of Good Luck and Mommy Tracked, a funny and touching novel about the call to motherhood, the complexities of adoption, and the promise and peril of parenthood
India and Jeremy Halloway are happily married, have creative careers, and live in a remodeled bohemian cottage in a historic West Palm Beach neighborhood. The only thing missing from their charmed life is the baby they both desperately want. After two years of failed fertility treatments, they are cash-strapped and no closer to parenthood.  That’s when they decide it’s time to look into adoption. 

Lainey Walker’s unexpected pregnancy threatens to derail her dream of moving to Los Angeles and becoming a reality-TV star. She also finds herself homeless and alone when her unsupportive gym-rat boyfriend kicks her out of their apartment.

When the Halloways and Lainey are matched up through an adoption agency, India proposes an unorthodox solution that just might solve all their problems. But as these three are about to discover, a baby changes everything.

Whitney Gaskell grew up in Syracuse, New York. A graduate of Tulane Law School, she worked for several years as a reluctant lawyer before writing her first novel, Pushing 30, followed by True Love (and Other Lies); She, Myself & I; Testing Kate, and Mommy Tracked. She lives in Stuart, Florida, with her husband and son.


"When You Least Expect It is clever, poignant, and refreshing. The crisp writing, smart voice, and strong dialogue make it a  fast-paced, engrossing read. Gaskell’s latest is hard to put down!" –Jane Porter, author of Easy on the Eyes

"With her signature wit, charm and irresistible voice, Whitney Gaskell knocks it out of the park with this emotional powerhouse of a novel about—above all things—hope."—Melissa Senate, author of The Secret of Joy

"Whitney Gaskell has so much talent, it makes me want to throw myself through a plate glass window. I loved When You Least Expect. Whitney brings us through all the heartache and triumph of the adoption process with relatable characters, memorable scenes, and much needed humor." –Kim Gruenenfelder, author of Misery Loves Cabernet
