    Annie Lee wants a baby in the worst way. She begins her overkill to insure this happens, driving her beleaguered spouse to seek shelter and comfort elsewhere. Even worse, Annie Lee begins to call the local Poison Control Center on a daily basis and sometimes more than that. She acts with the counselors as if she already has a baby though she is not pregnant and her husband has moved from Pike, Colorado to Seattle to escape her latest obsession. This marriage appears busted unless they can find a common peak like the restaurant they both want to open.

    WAIT AND SEE, ANNIE LEE is an unusal romance that starts off as a hilarious satire that rips the basic tenets of society. However about half way into the tale, the plot takes an unnecessary turn to cuddly capriciousness and loses some of its edge. The story line overall is amusing due to the eccentric and likable characters including Annie Lee (as long as she is not part of the reader's household). Michelle Curry Wright shows the right stuff for those readers who want something completely different.
