Review: Kaylee always tells me, "Show me how they connect," and she practices what she preaches. I love the build-up of Meg and Matt's friendship. I love how they unfold for each other and for us, layer by layer. I love Matt as a dad--I'm a sucker for a good dad character. It melts my heart. I love Meg's sister Missy because, I think, that might be a teensy bit me. (Although, cross my heart, I don't tell people my famil ...more
Meg sanders finds out her husband of a couple months is leaving her for another woman. Then after the divorce is final, she discovers she's pregnant and her ex has changed his number. Communication between lawyers is that he'll send $ for an abortion.
Even though she'll be a single mom, that isn't even a choice for Meg. She left the church for this man sh ...more
Widowed single dad and newly divorced single mom. Hmmm, wonder where this could go?
Just too many things that fell flat with this story, including unnecessary details. Meg goes shopping for maternity clothes. At the mall. And moans about budget. (Why didn't she hit a thrift shop or consignment store, or ask at church?) What's up with Lilia's desire to change clothes every time she splashes water on herself (this is mentioned twice, and I guess the author is try ...more
Meg is a newlywed, but finds herself slapped with a divorce, only a few months after the wedding. Soon after that, she discovers that she's pregnant and faces the future as a single mom. I really liked that Meg wasn't perfect--she seemed so real to me: insecure, struggling with herself and the expectations she placed upon herself, and trying to figure out who she really is.
I loved the journey that sh ...more
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 p ...more

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 ...more

I know I have mentioned this before, but I am one of those that tire of the formulated LDS novels. I often look for something a little different, and this is one of them. Kaylee Baldwin writes a unique story that still has the good feeling that you find in LDS literature, but steps away from the formula.
My copy had several questions in the back, ma ...more
I tried to sympathize with Meg but too many details were glaringly absent starting with the characters psyche. People just don't act like this IRL. How many divorcee's in YOUR home ward wouldn't be trampling poor Meg into the ground just to get a piece of Matt or Johnny-the last two single men left on ear ...more
All in all, an enjoyable read.
Kaylee is a tremendously talented writer. I can't wait for her next to hit shelves!
It was a fabulous romance, with an incredibly fun little girl thrown in the mix and a very lovable Meg.
Also - for a while - I used a quote from this book (look for something involving a blender) as my gmail tagline :D
