95:120 Shiver in Light by Laurell K. Hamilton

The 9th book in the Meredith Gentry series.  The babies have finally arrived, triplets rather than twins, and now it's time for Merry and her men to find their new normal as they try to figure out who the fathers of all the babies are and just how much magic they will have.  Not only that but Taranis is coming back into some of his powers and is convinced that Merry should be his and that at least one of the babies is also his and will stop at nothing to have them both.  Andais is finally coming out of the madness that claimed her after Cel's murder and Merry is showing her that she will have to play nice if she wants to know her great-nieces and nephew.  Merry is also trying to figure out what her play will be as her time is running out in her alliance with the goblin king, not that he may be king for much longer.

I've got 4 kids and I understand that post-partum is a thing but oh, man, a whole entire book devoted to her weeping and whining?!  I liked the little bits of political intrigue that went on between the crying jags but the petty bickering I could definitely have done without especially since it did not seem to move the story or overall plot along at all.  Considering it was years since the last one, this seemed like a very poor return to the world.
