Review: Meg's Melody by Kaylee Baldwin

Meg's Melody by Kaylee Baldwin

Publisher: Cedar Fort 
Pages: 256
Format: Kindle

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.

I thought this sounded really good, but I was worried it would be too heavy for me.  Maybe too dramatic or something. It wasn't.  I loved it!  It was all believable and actually quite beautiful.  It was predictable, in a good way.  I wanted it to happen.  I was willing it too.  And it did.  I enjoyed the characters.  Even with their pain and situations, I could tell what kind of people they were and I knew I wanted to get to know them better.  I wanted to see good things happen for Meg and Matt. They deserved it.  I felt like a part of their story. 

I loved it you guys.  I really did.  I kind of wouldn't mind reading it again one more time before I move on to another book.  It just spoke to me.

"You can't mock the chef in her own kitchen.  You're just lucky that I'm a nice girl, and you're on your way to work, or else you'd get the opportunity to taste a pre-cooked pancake, as it's dripping from your hair to your mouth." Meg smiled sweetly as she walk toward him with the bowl in her hands.
