Secrets aren’t meant to be told. They’re meant to disguise, ruin or enhance something that’s the honest to God truth.
The only real thing going for Kelinda Milliken is her grant work at the University of Texas in Austin, where she examines specimens day after day with a vaccine for HIV in sight.
That is until…
Kelinda finds herself home in Edgewood, Maine to bury her mother and settle her very wealthy estate. Although Maine is the last place she wants to be, she finds herself trapped in her past while going through her mother’s things to find all the secrets she’d kept from Kelinda for years.
Rory McCary, a professional snowboarder, has never forgotten his first true love. Even though he’s set to walk down the aisle to a beautiful, amazing woman, he can’t get the past out of his head.
Rory’s hang-ups over the past reaches a boiling point when he realizes his ex-girlfriend, Keely, is back in town and dealing with a life-altering hardship.
With every attempt to avoid her, he finally gives in to face the only woman who ever walked away from him only to find out that everything that happened was a lie.
Secrets aren’t meant to be told but if they are discovered, it can not only ruin but obliterate everything you ever knew about life.
Sometimes whem you first read a blurb for a book you say to yourself this sounds like a book that I would love to read and than when you finally read the book it's not really what you expected it's actually better, that is what this book was for me. I usually love a book that's all about the sex and sometimes when I read a book that's not I'm left a little disappointed but with 77 Steps I was left feeling warm and fuzzy. I loved the little quirk that Kelinda had and Rory was also wonderful. This book was so full of secrets that I never knew what would happen next and I'm glad that I found out. The story line kept my attention and there was never a dull moment in this book. I look forward to reading more from this author.
