Book Review of Like Never Before by Melissa Tagg

I love all things Melissa Tagg!  And Like Never Before, book 2 in the Walker Family series is no exception.

Maple Valley became Amelia Bentley's haven after her heart and her dreams of a family were shattered. But when the newspaper she runs is in danger of closing, she pins all her hopes on a story that just might convince the new owner to keep the paper running.

After his biggest campaign success yet, widowed speechwriter Logan Walker has the chance of a lifetime: a spot on a presidential campaign. But first he has to return to his hometown to sell the newspaper he's suddenly inherited.

But instead of a quick sale, Logan finds himself helping Amelia chase her story. She's scrappy, but wounded. He's dependable, but lost. And working together to break the story on Maple Valley's unsolved mystery is just the start of the sparks that fly in the office and in their hearts.

Named to Publishers Weekly's spring 2016 "Religion and Spirituality" Top 10 list!

This book has everything. Romance, powerful characters in realistic and compelling struggles, redemption, hope and intrigue.There was nothing to disappoint in this story. 

Tagg writes fun fiction with a deep soul. Amelia and Logan's romance was deep and sweet and heart-tugging. The characters were real and vibrant and captivating. The setting rich and touching. 

There is a historical element to this particular story as Tagg dives her characters into solving a mystery of a local legend in Maple Valley. It was entertaining to see how Melissa Tagg wove elements of fiction (her characters) and fact (real curious events in history) to tell a riveting tale. 

If this is your first introduction to Melissa Tagg, feel free to browse a few other reviews I've done of her work.

Also, check out her website. It is a real treat. Under the books tab you can find all her great stuff. As well as a prequel - FREE - to the Walker Family Series. (Download Three Little Words.) And be sure to notice that book #3 - Keep Holding On is already available. [Yeah, yeah, I'm a little late with my book #2 review :( ]
AND - for the Christmas story lovers out there check out Tagg's two Christmas novellas from Maple Valley.
