Step by Step - Candace Calvert

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!
