Like Never Before by Melissa Tagg

Maple Valley became Amelia Bentley's haven after her heart and her dreams of a family were shattered. But her new life as a newspaper editor is shaken when the small-town paper is in danger of closing. Her one hope: A lead on an intriguing story that just might impress the new publisher...if only she knew who he was.

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 really enjoyed reading the next installment in the Walker family saga. All he wants to do is return to Maple Valley, sell the newspaper he inherited and be the speech writer for the next US President.  What he doesn’t anticipate is meeting Amelia Bentley.  She is the editor of the newspaper he wants to sell.  Amelia came to Maple Valley several years ago.  She was drifting until she landed in Maple Valley.  Now she can’t imagine living anywhere else.  Both Logan and Amelia are hurting.  Logan from the death of his wife and Amelia from an adoption that feel through and her recent divorce.  I saw this book as their journey from hurting individuals to confident self assured individuals.  They also are finding their way back to the God they thought had abandoned them.  There are many struggles along the way.  I won’t go into detail as I don’t want to give away any spoilers. 

I recommend this book to anyone.  It is a good clean Christian novel.  I am looking forward to reading about the next Walker family member.

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