Blog Tour Part 1: Book Review: Meg’s Melody by Kaylee Baldwin

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.

This touching story combines romance with redemption and real conflict to remind you it’s never too late to find joy. Kaylee Baldwin’s capable hand renders a sincere, heartfelt story of rediscovery and hope. Perfect for romantics of all ages, this book will captivate your heart and rekindle your belief in the magic of music.

I’ve been so impressed with the LDS Fiction I have read recently.  There are some amazing new LDS authors and Kaylee Baldwin is one of them.  This is a fabulous debut and I certainly hope we see more great things from Kaylee in the near future.

I really enjoy LDS fiction that has flawed characters that struggle with their faith.  Meg’s Melody has a great story that explores faith, family relationships, divorce, pregnancy, trials, love and loss without being cheesy or preachy.  I fell in love with the characters in this story and was cheering them on as they overcame the trials they faced.  This was an engaging read that I would highly recommend to any LDS reader or those who enjoy faith based clean romance.

On a side note – Meg’s Melody is the perfect title for this book!
