Like Never Before

Like Never Before
Walker Family Book 2
Melissa Tagg
All Amelia wanted was a family. When she couldn't provide that her husband left her. Amelia landed Maple Valley and fell in love with not only the town, but the people. These people became her family. So when her small town newspaper is on the brink of disaster, Amelia will fight with everything she has to keep it going for her adopted family.

 Logan has no idea what to do with the newspaper business that he's suddenly inherited. His home is in California and his business is on the brink of taking off. So he's hoping that a quick visit to family and an even quicker sale of the business will put him back home in time to help with a presidential campaign that will take his business to the next level.

I absolutely loved this story. I've enjoyed this author from the beginning when I read her first book. But I think she just keeps getting better. This book was my favorite. The Walker family is authentic. They have good and bad qualities that feel real to the reader and make them personable and relatable. The plot didn't have everything happening the way the main characters wanted, instead it was closer to reality, with ups, downs, and surprises. Faith was mixed with traditions, family ties, and a small town community to create a story that will come alive for the reader and draw them in to the story. The romance was sweet, clean, and often times mixed with angst. But it fit the two main characters personalities so well and made me fall in love with them. It was the type of book that I rushed to finish so I could see how it ended, and then wished that I'd savored it because I didn't want it to end. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next book in the series and would highly recommend not only this book, but any of her previous ones as well.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
