New Releases: From the Start

The author of this book, Melissa Tagg, was just recently discovered for me but I'm so glad I found her. Her books are some of my new favorites. You'll see her name added to my list of favorite authors. :) It just keeps getting longer, doesn't it?

Book Title: From the Start
Publication Date: April 7, 2015 (Another book that I actually managed to post the review on the day it was published. Yeah! :)
Publisher: Bethany House

Description:
Kate Walker used to believe in true love and happily ever after. While her own love life may have left her brokenhearted, it hasn't kept her from churning out made-for-TV romance movie screenplays...until a major career slump and a longing to do something meaningful send her running back to her hometown of Maple Valley. 

Permanently sidelined by an injury, former NFL quarterback Colton Greene is temporarily hiding out in a friend's hometown to avoid the media and the reminders of all he's lost. Maple Valley seems like the perfect place to learn how to adjust to normal life. The only trouble is he's never really done normal before.

While Kate plays things safe and Colton is all about big risks and grand gestures, they both get what it's like to desperately need direction in life. An unexpected project gives them both a chance to jumpstart their new lives, but old wounds and new dreams are hard to ignore. Starting over wasn't part of the plan, but could it be the best thing that's ever happened to them?


My Review:
I'd never read any books by Melissa Tagg before but after this book I definitely will read more! From the Start draws you quickly into the story and before you know it you're hooked. (For me, that's always a good thing... unlike fish :) Katherine and Colton were both great characters. The author did a wonderful job creating their likeable personalities, quirks, and history. Their unselfish compassion for others is what really stood out to me. 

This book has a perfect mixture of romance, Christian values, humor, and depth--Definitely a book I suggest you read. 

My Rating:⭐⭐⭐⭐
Note: I received this book through NetGalley. http://netgalley.com
