Kaylee Baldwin Author of Meg's Melody

I'd like to introduce a new author to you. Her name is Kaylee Baldwin.


Kaylee grew up in Mesa, Arizona, and graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in English literature.


She currently lives in southern Arizona with her husband, Jeremy, and their three children. When she is not writing, Kaylee enjoys reading, starting new craft projects, and spending time with her family.

You can learn more about Kaylee at her website http://www.kayleebaldwin.com/.



I recently reviewed her book, Meg's Melody here. I loved the book. In fact, I nominated it for a Whitney Award. Here's the official back cover copy:

 
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.

Kaylee is holding a contest. If you leave a comment here or at any of the blogs listed below you will be entered into a drawing to receive a copy of Meg's Melody.
