"Superbly well done!"--Katie Ganshert, bestselling, award-winning author

"Melissa Tagg just keeps getting better and better!"--Susan May Warren, RITA® and Christy Award-winning, bestselling author of the Christiansen Family series

"Witty storytelling at its best."--Kristy Cambron, author of the Hidden Masterpiece series and The Ringmaster's Wife

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.

"Tagg fashions another endearing, pithy story of finding love at the perfect time."--Publishers Weekly

"The instant chemistry between the main characters makes this a delightful favorite, and their easy banter shines with Tagg's smart, witty voice. While Amelia Bentley is indeed perfectly likeable, Logan Walker embodies everything that fans of contemporary romance find so attractive in a male lead...Written in Tagg's engaging style, this latest offering has plenty of dimension and heart."--RT Book Reviews

"Tagg captures the familiar cadence of life in a rural Midwest community while bringing gentle compassion to such sensitive topics as grief over the death of a spouse. A thread of historical drama adds an entertaining element of tension to the book's quintessentially American plot, and its inspirational themes are prominent yet seamlessly woven into the dialogue and relationships. An engaging sequel and satisfying read, especially for fans of small-town romances."--Booklist

"Like Never Before, second in Tagg's Walker Family series, follows a close-knit, loving family as they struggle with life's uncertainties and losses. Endearing characters, deft writing, and an interesting historical mystery will intrigue readers, but the real gem is Tagg's well-handled theme of the need to trust in a loving, sovereign God."--CBA Retailers + Resources
