With A BABY FOR NEW YEAR'S, Hughes has come into her own as an author of heartwarming romances with flawed characters who try to do the right thing even though that complicates their lives.
It’s nice to see a heroine like Meg who is a single mother, trying to set a good example for her children. She is the kind of woman we all want to be: a good mother, daughter, and sister–even though Meg’s sister makes the reader want to shake some sense into her. It’s almost a universal law that a good, compassionate woman has someone in her life who gives her never-ending grief.
Meg avoids taking the self-indulgent path and yielding to her desire because she knows the hurt that may cause others. Yet, she is not perfect. She’s living life on her own terms, or so she thinks. Only when she falls in love does she realize how events from her previous marriage affect her attitudes and behaviors.
Meg always strives to do the right thing. In a world where people seem more prone to living life without thought of the consequences to others, that is enormously appealing. Her story tugs the heartstrings and takes the reader on an emotional journey as she battles her own demons and comes to terms with her own past.
If you love Women’s Fiction with romantic elements, you’ll love A Baby For New Year’s. It is, in a word, wonderful.
Meg is a wonderful single mom who works hard at proving for her own children. When her niece shows up at her door, pregnant, she doesn't have it in her to turn her away, despite the fact that taking her in will most likely cause an even bigger rift between her and her sister, Kelly. And then there is Evan. He's genuine and loving. He's trying to make up for lost time and be a good dad, but it's obvious the sparks betweem him and Meg are real. I rooted so hard for them. Can Meg and Kelly mend the broken pieces of their sisterly bond? Will there be more than a popping of a cork at New Year's? With such a beautiful cadence to nearly every sentence in Ms. Hughes' writing, you should read A Baby for New Year's and find out!
This is my first red by Susan R. Hughes, and I was provided with a copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review - As part of Free Books for Review on Facebook, when I have time to read, I tend to snap up any romance genre books on offer, as a fast reader, it becomes an expensive hobby buying a couple of books a day, so admittedly I don't tend to read the blurbs. Had I have done so, I wouldn't have requested this book to read due to the subject matter of sister-in-law and brother-in-law falling in love. My personal feeling is that it's too incestuous - like the unspoken rule that a girl never goes with her best friends ex, it feels kind of disturbing to me that sisters have shared the same man, but as that's my personal view on this trope, and because I didn't make myself aware of what I was getting into before I started reading, it would be unfair of me to mark the author down when it didn't suit my personal reading preferences. So, for that reason, I'll rate and review the book on the fact that it was well written, with fallible characters that you could relate to, even if you didn't necessarily like them all. I had no sympathy for Kelly, Evan's ex-wife, who came across as bitter with a woe-is-me-my-life-sucks attitude, and played the victim throughout the novel - she wasn't even that gracious at the end. The descriptives were great, the kids and pregnant teenager Julie were adorable and had Maggie and Evan not been related, while I would have been happy for them to get together, the novel was too short for me to get any real sense of connection to them, their desire for each other, or to draw out any strong emotions from me - so for that reason I give this 3.5 stars and will learn a lesson to read the blurbs in future!
