"Like Never Before"

Melissa Tagg has become one of my must-read authors and her books are must-haves for my bookshelf!  Melissa's latest novel, "Like Never Before," is another winner and one that I did not want to put down once I started reading!
The Walkers have become like family to me and Maple Valley has become like home to me; I wish this place and this family actually existed in real life.  I loved Seth's story and Kate's story, both which were written about in Melissa's previous books, but I have to say that Logan's story is my favorite so far.  Logan has returned home after his mentor passed away and left the hometown newspaper to him.  However, Logan is leaving behind his business and his business partner and having to face memories from the past, including memories of his late wife.  Logan is worried about his daughter Charlie and is hopeful this change is good for her, although it is to be a short-lived visit.  Once Logan arrives he is drawn back into his family and home and also into Amelia's life as she is trying to keep the paper going and also trying to solve a mystery of a man from the town whom played a significant role in her life.  I loved the interactions between Logan and Amelia as they are both lost, hurting souls, and have common interests yet both independent, but also needing more in their lives.  Case remains one of my favorite characters though, he is strong, sensitive, wise, and there for his kids and the others whom show up at his home.  This is a story full of heart, love and characters who will stay with you long after you reach the end.
