After his biggest campaign success yet, widowed speechwriter Logan Walker now has the chance of a lifetime--a spot on a presidential campaign. But his plans are interrupted when he finds out he's inherited his hometown newspaper. He travels home intent on selling the paper and spending some much-needed time with his young daughter before making the leap into national politics.
But instead of a quick sale and peaceful break from his hectic career, Logan finds himself helping Amelia chase her story. She's scrappy, but wounded. He's dependable, but lost. They may butt heads more than expected, but a series of leads on Maple Valley's quirky unsolved mystery is just the start of the sparks that fly in the office and in their hearts.
I must confess that I love Melissa Tagg and her books. I've been waiting for this book since I finished the last one in this Walker Family series. There is just something about Melissa's writing that connects with me. It's easy to settle in with and I enjoy every minute of reading.
Amelia is a fun character. She is scrappy and she is hopeful. Even though she has been hurt- deeply- she still has a soft and kind heart. The hope is always there in her. I loved that.
Logan was the perfect brooding male leading. He is struggling but as soon as he arrives home, he starts to remember who he is and what he really wants. Amelia and Logan are the perfect blend for this sweet romance. It was awesome to be back in Maple Valley again with so many characters that I have come to know and love. They were all there making an appearance at some point or another. It felt like coming home.
So, much love from me for this book. Gentle, easy, flowing and feeling good. That's how I feel about Like Never Before. I cannot wait for the next book! There are a few stories in this family that need to be told!
