From the Back Cover:
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?
What a cute story! I really enjoyed reading through this book. It didn't take long for me to be hooked and not want to put this book down. The plot is well written and the story keeps you wondering about what has happened in the characters' pasts to make them who they are today. I also liked that the story was clean and not overly sensual. Some of the romance novels these days are trying to see how far they can go with their characters before it is really inappropriate. I appreciate it when an author keeps the romance clean. I know that as my own daughter gets older, there are definitely books I don't want her reading even though they say they are written by Christian authors. So, thank you Melissa Tag for writing a novel that I can loan out with any reservations. If you're looking for a fun new series to start this summer, pick up From the Start!
