Meg's Melody Review and GIVEAWAY--It's a race!
Taken from Kaylee Baldwin's blog:
She paced the small confines of her bathroom as she waited the obligatory two minutes for the result. Yet, part of her sensed the truth. Not only did Austin take her self-esteem and plans for happiness, but he also took her get-out-of-this-marriage-free card.
The plus sign glared at Meg from the white plastic frame of the pregnancy test. The test fell from her hands and clattered into the bathtub as Meg’s back slid against the wall until she reached the floor.
“I’m pregnant,” she said into the quiet.
Meg never imagined she'd end up like this. With nowhere else to turn, she's forced to rely on the family she pushed away, the church she abandoned, and an unexpected friendship to help her find her forgotten melody. Meanwhile Matt is still mourning the loss of his wife. But determined to keep things together for his daughter's sake, he decides starting over in a new place might be just what his family needs.
Meg's Melody by Kaylee Baldwin is a delightful new LDS romance novel. The book's characters are amazingly relatable; the flow is easy and quick-paced; and the conclusion is one you'll wait anxiously for on the edge of your seat.
This book pulled me in from the start. Meg seems to be left behind again and again in her life, and I think that is something we can all relate to at one point or another. She is jealous of her sister's marriage, her mother's and sister's close relationship, and everyone else who's lives seem to fall perfectly into place.
Still, I loved how Meg took a fighter's stance at her circumstances and plunged on ahead even when there was little hope things would turn out okay.
The romance element is great too, and I found myself hating one possible suitor and cheering for the other. I'm sure you'll do the same when you read it!
