This week I thought I'd post a book review I wrote for one of my favorite HQ American writers, Megan Kelly. Her new book is on store shelves until they replace them with the October books, so if you haven't bought it yet, get down to the bookstore or hit Amazon. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.

Megan Kelly takes us back to Missouri for her newest book, Stand-In Mom. And as always, takes us back to the theme of family and community.
Ginger Winchester, a local teacher, wants one thing more than any other, a baby of her own. Divorced and unable to conceive, she’s been working on polishing her image to make the adoption agency see her as deserving. So when she shares a night of passion with a complete stranger, she’s determined not to make that mistake again.
Scott Matthews, a smooth-talking Southern boy is running from his own demons. But he’s got his two little girls to protect. And falling in love with Ginger, his oldest child’s new teacher, is not on his to do list.
Both Ginger and Scott hold secrets. Secrets not only to protecting themselves, but the people they love. Readers will love watching the couple figure out that families are not just born, their made. And like adopting an untrained puppy, building a family can be a lot of work. But you don’t give up on the people you love.
