"What was I thinking? Sex for the very last time. That's what."
Five-O magazine lifestyle columnist Lu Nichols has led an ordinary life. Marriage. Career. Two kids. Now she's turning fifty, and the wear is showing. The kids are grown. The ink is dry on the divorce papers. Her boss wants to do an extreme makeover feature, starring Lu. And those bad oysters she ate have turned out to be something a little more permanent.
"I'm almost fifty years old, recently divorced. Now I'm about to be an unwed mother. And you thought you had issues."
Her soon-to-be-wed daughter is horrified. Her boss is thrilled; she can turn her delicate condition into a monthly expose. Her ex is AWOL. And the sexy, slightly younger doctor who delivered the news? Well, he hasn't run off screaming yet. And however it turns out, there's one thing Lu can be sure of -- she's knocked up, but not out. And more than ready for a brand-new Lu . . .
