From the Start by Melissa Tagg

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?

Let me preface my review with the statement that most of the books I read are suspense books.  That being said I did enjoy the book but it didn’t keep me on the edge of my seat.  I did enjoy Kate and Colton’s characters.  They were both in limbo and not sure what the next phase of their lives would be.  They had plan A or B in their minds and were trying to decide which one to choose.  Only thing is they didn’t put God into the equation to see what he wanted them to do.  Maybe it was plan C or D.  It opened my eyes to how many times I do the same thing with my life decisions. I would give this book 3 ½ stars because as I stated I’m more of a suspense reader.  I look forward to the other books in the Walker family series.

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
