Book Description

Good Intentions is the tragic story of one woman’s efforts to help a teenage mother. Megan, fourteen and pregnant, needed a mom. Tracy, thirty-nine and already raising a large family, gave her a home. Neither was ready for what happened next.

Tracy Reynolds’ life is not her own. She works the night shift at the hospital and has three boys, two girls and a husband who works the opposite shift along with a menagerie of rescued pets. Somehow, she and her husband, Tim, have made it work with love, faith, and impeccable ethics.

Adding fourteen-year-old Megan and her newborn son to the mix was supposed to be uncomplicated. The adoption agency made it sound so easy. They painted Megan has a good child who had a rough life. She needed love and understanding and the stability of a respectable home and family. Tracy and Tim fit the bill and were fast tracked through the system and before they knew it trouble landed on their doorstep. Megan.

Megan rejected their family values and resisted from every direction when it came to learning how to live within their family dynamics and taking care of her son. She missed her friends and the people she knew when she worked as a prostitute. Despite court orders and her probation officer’s warnings, Megan secretly reconnected with her old friends and lover.

The Reynolds’ family spun out of control. Not one would be untouched by Hurricane Megan’s path of destruction.

Deceptions. Infidelity. Drugs. Child abuse. Cancer. Sexual abuse. Home invasion. The Reynolds’ went through it all. Would their family ever be the same?

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Good Intentions count? January 8, 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a quick read and that is a fine thing- since you can "kiss goodbye" anything else you had on your schedule. I had to offer a few apologies of my own for chores left undone, but curiosity trumped discipline. If you have a lick of street-smarts you see the train-wreck coming, but disembarking is not an option. You must stay onboard to see how it plays out, all the while shaking your head at the naivety of this kind family. Fortunately, Mama has pluck to go along with her oversized heart, and you do find yourself hoping for a miracle. If only good deeds went unpunished once in a while...
Flawlessly written and heartbreaking, you won't soon forget this story.

I'm very sure this book wasn't edited by a professional editor because there are several 'had had's and too many had's in it and I'm not half through it yet. The writer keeps going over what she has already written.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Good Intentions" Review February 10, 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a true to life story about a family of seven with parents who have a lot of love to give. The book revolves around a 14 year old girl who is both homeless and pregnant. The story is told through the eyes of the mother, Tracy Reynolds. The young pregnant teen named Megan has no family and no clue as to who her real mother was. She went from one foster home to another. No one wanted to adopt a troubled teen. Then she became pregnant. That is when she met Tracy Reynolds, a nurse at her hospital. Tracy fell in love with her at first sight and secretly wanted to adopt her and her future baby. The story goes on from there like a wild ride on a roller-coaster.
The day to day detailed story will keep your mind waiting for what's to happen next. I completed chapter 26 before I realized it was a book I was reading! The detailed description of what was occurring was like watching a movie in my mind. I think Vicki Taylor is an exceptional writer, and "Good Intentions" is a book anyone can read and enjoy. I learned a lot about what it's like to be a woman and to be pregnant as well! Something I know I will never experience in my lifetime! You will remain riveted to the book and always waiting for that shoe to fall. The shoe I'm talking about is Megan, the unpredictable one. Will she flip out? Will she run away from home? Will she get pregnant again? Will she leave her baby unattended? You just never know what to expect.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading. If you don't enjoy reading, you will once you pick up this book!
Sincerely,
Philip LoPresti
