Like Never Before by Melissa Tagg

Like Never Before

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. – from author’s website

First off, I received a free galley of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. As this was an advanced version, there were some grammar and spelling errors that were hopefully fixed before the final publish.

I found that the scenes were a little short and time moved from one day to the next or to the next week quite often, so the time moved fairly fast and faster than most books I read. As an avid reader, as well as someone who works in libraries, I loved that Logan took Amelia on a date to the library. I personally would have liked to see more interaction between Charlie, Logan’s daughter, and Amelia. The historical aspect of the book added an extra intrigue to the story and gave the book a little mystery. I had high expectations for this book because of what I had heard about it before reading the book and it didn’t quite meet my expectations, but nevertheless it was a quirky, intriguing romance.
