I love small, quirky towns. I love a good B&B setting in a small, quirky town. Toss in a renovation of the B&B in the small, quirky town?
Yeah, I pretty much loved Now and Then and Always!!
Set in lovable Maple Valley, Now and Then and Always is a fabulous blend of romance, mystery and faith. The characters are layered and relatable. The supporting cast was exceptionally strong, and the friendships made in this story were wonderful!
Before reading Now and Then and Always, I’d only read novellas by Melissa Tagg (see those reviews here! and here! ) so I was excited to see how a full length novel would play out. Honestly, guys…this was perfect!
This is a deep story and the lead characters, Marshall and Mara, have major hurts in their past. You feel those hurts right along with them. Yet, there is so much hope in their stories, you never feel down-and-out while reading this book. I found it to be rather uplifting! Melissa Tagg’s storytelling is a gift!
I’m so glad this was the start of a new series! The promise of more stories set in Maple Valley is real and I can’t wait for more!
Oh, and may I add that I’m sitting here eating a bowl of Lucky Charms while I type this review. Well, maybe they’re generic store brand “Magic Stars” but, hey – still counts. Why do I mention this beloved breakfast cereal? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
