From the Start (Walker Family, #1) by Melissa Tagg

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?

Discussion is now open for this book. Please use the spoiler alert in case others are still reading.

Both Kate and Colton had difficulty with letting go, is there an area in your life where you need to let go and let God?

Who was your favorite character? Why?

My favorite character was Megan. She was smart to find a way to support herself with her inheritance. Although she was smart, she guarded her heart tightly for fear it’d be broken again. I hope she’ll be in a future novel in the series (if she is, please don’t share that). I prefer to be surprised by the characters in the other novels.

I also really liked Logan and Case.

Amanda (goodreadscomamanda_hamm) | 13 comments Finally finished this book last night.

I think I liked Case best, though he was minor. He seemed wise and had adult children who still looked up to him. I'd love to be something like that in ten or twenty years.

I agree Amanda. I liked Case too for the same reason. I have adult children and always pray that they will continue to look up to me.
