Step by Step – Candace Calvert
This wasn’t my first Candace Calvert book. I have enjoyed many of her series. I loved the Grace Medical and Mercy Hospital series. If I could go back in life, I think I would have chosen a job in the medical field. (A part-time job in case my kids read this – my job was a stay-at-home homeschooling mom! To clarify, I wouldn’t change that!) I am a Paramedic/ER nurse wannabe! I love how Calvert is so descriptive about the medical side in her books. That said I just didn’t enjoy Step by Step. I finally stopped reading after chapter 9. I just felt like the same thing was being said in all of the 9 chapters I read to develop the plot. Taylor has a sad past; she is trying to move forward with her life. She is ‘dating’ a passively controlling man. (I didn’t like him!) Seth is someone from her past, but she just wants to avoid him. I feel like this was still being established in chapter 9, but I understood in chapter 3 or 4.
I really wanted to like this book! Truly! Cross my heart! But, I just couldn’t stay in the game. I will pass it along to another person, and tell them how much I have enjoyed Calvert’s books. I will let them make their own decision about this one. And I will read the next one!
