Like Never Before by Melissa Tagg

Like Never Before book cover

Amelia Bentley fell in love with Maple Valley as soon as she set foot in the quiet, close-knit town. The people and the community helped her heal from a broken heart and a rocky past. However, the newspaper that she works for is suddenly in danger of closing down, so she attempts to write one more big story in an effort to save the paper. Widower Logan Walker has created a successful business in California as a campaign speechwriter. But when he unexpectedly inherits the newspaper in Maple Valley, he flies to his hometown to quickly sell the paper before staring a big political campaign out east. Both Amelia and Logan have past hurts and present struggles but their wounds may be what brings them together.

As is the case with all of Melissa Tagg’s books, I loved the characters in this novel. Amelia is cute and passionate and grapples with genuine hurts and realistic struggles that are relatable. She is easy to connect with and I found myself wishing that I could call her up and have coffee with her. Logan too is a humble, gentle man who does everything he can for his small family. The writing flows easily and moves the story along at a pleasant pace. Romance and humor intertwined with deep conversations and spiritual truths create a novel that is truly enjoyable to read. I highly recommend this book!

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
