Book Review: From the Start

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?

Melissa Tagg is a former newspaper reporter current nonprofit grant writer, and total Iowa girl. When she's not writing she can be found hanging out with the coolest family ever. She's passionate about humor, grace, and happy endings. Melissa is the author of Made to Last and Here to Stay and blogs regularly at

I absolutely love a good romance and From the Start is one of these. Kate is a very lovable character and so is Colton, so watching their lives grow is fantastic. This is one of those books that you're going to want to read on a casual afternoon. If you like The Bachelor or A Love Undone this is a book you for sure should check out.
