About the book:
Maple Valley became Amelia Bentley's haven after her heart and her dreams of a family were shattered. But when the newspaper she runs is in danger of closing, she pins all her hopes on a story that just might convince the new owner to keep the paper running.
After his biggest campaign success yet, widowed speechwriter Logan Walker has the chance of a lifetime: a spot on a presidential campaign. But first he has to return to his hometown to sell the newspaper he's suddenly inherited.
But instead of a quick sale, Logan finds himself helping Amelia chase her story. She's scrappy, but wounded. He's dependable, but lost. And working together to break the story on Maple Valley's unsolved mystery is just the start of the sparks that fly in the office and in their hearts.
Melissa Tagg has done it again! I loved this book! The characters were wonderful and fleshed out well, from quirky Amelia who loves the small town she's made home and the newspaper she's keeping alive to Logan who's trying to be the best single dad he can be while writing speeches to get candidates elected. They're both recovering from broken hearts for different reasons and both struggling to keep their faith alive after going through some really tough circumstances. There were some cute romantic moments, but I did wish for more. There were some insightful spiritual conversations with good reminders for my own faith. I loved the Walker family and it was fun to catch up with Colton, Kate and the others from the previous book and while you can read this as a stand-alone, why would you want to? You should definitely check out her other books. She's one of my new favorite authors. I loved their small town, too, with the unique people that live there and made it home. The references to classic movies was great! The mystery was interesting and I could totally relate to Amelia's love of history. Melissa's writing is wonderful and I can't wait for the next book in the series! I highly recommend it!
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
