Waiting on Wednesday #152: From the Start

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're
eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

From the Start by Melissa Tagg
Bethany House-April 7, 2014

About the Book
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?

Why I Want It
My crazed desire to read this book began the second Melissa mentioned working on book number three and it only grew as I saw the cover and synopsis. Then came the release of her novella Three Little Words which is a prequel to this series and I fell in love with the Walkers and Maple Valley. And to top it all off she included two chapters of From the Start at the end of the novella and I was of course sucked in and I was laughing so hard! So in short I am desperate to read this book and I cannot wait!
