I enjoyed this story, and appreciated the author's authority on 'medical speak' and hospital procedures - they provide a great foundation, but she did not get SO technical that those of us not in that vocation got lost. This book was also an excellent set up for the next book featuring Sloane Wilder. A sneak preview chapter is included at the end. Although Step by Step can be read as a stand alone, you would likely get much more out of it if you read the first one, By Your Side.
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
