I love a good romance and Baby Steps delivers. K. L. McLoughlin has written a charming and intelligent story about finding love for second time.
McLoughlin has written a tale not only about love and romance, but has managed to create subplots about controversial subjects, like abortion and teen sex, and does it beautifully. I never felt as if I was being preached to, just allowed to listen in on the thoughts and feelings of other people. McLoughlin also gives us a real woman dealing with real issues in the main character Lynda Blake. Lynda deals with the balance of love and faith between her new romance and her son, as well as the danger they all experience due to her new boyfriend’s career. Lynda is definitely a multi-dimensional character, and I enjoyed her thoroughly.
K. L. McLoughlin has crafted a beautiful book about life, love and the decisions we make and don’t make. Baby Steps is a definite must have for anyone’s reading list.
