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?
From the Start by Melissa Tagg was such a joy to read. I adored every minute I got to spend with these characters and I can't wait to spend even more time with them in the future books of this series. I felt Kates uncertainty about her future and loved seeing her get to grow from that by seeking God's plan. I also loved Colton, I mean it would be hard not to! He is an amazingly written character and totally swoon-worthy! From the Start is a great christian romance with characters that are sure to quickly find their way into your heart.
5 out of 5. One of my favorite Afternoon Snacks!
