Three Little Words

Author: Melissa Tagg
Publisher: Bethany House
March 2015
Genre  contemporary romance novella

Ava Kingsley and Seth Walker might be the most unlikely friends ever. The only thing these two polar opposites have in common is a knack for wordsmithing. Back in college, they were known for their written sparring in the campus newspaper's popular "He Says/She Says" column.

At their ten-year college reunion, they pick up right where they left off. Except this time their squabbling leads to a surprising turn: friendship and a year-long exchange of emails. So when Ava approaches a crossroads in her athletics department career in Minnesota, Seth is quick to offer the open apartment above the restaurant he's been remodeling in Maple Valley, Iowa.

Ava doesn't know where her career will lead her next, but she's starting to suspect she might see Seth as more than a pen pal. Which would be exciting...except for the fact that he only sees her as a friend.

As Maple Valley grows on her, Ava wonders if there might be something here for her even though Seth is unavailable. And maybe, just maybe, after all the words the two of them have exchanged over the years, they'll finally be able to say the three that matter most.

Three Little Words is an e-only novella that gives an exciting introduction to Melissa Tagg's new series about the charismatic Walker family and the endearing town of Maple Valley!

I enjoyed getting to know Ava and Seth and how their relationship changed from virtual enemies to best friends. I liked Seth, and Ava was just plain fun, fun, fun. Seth did have some confusion to try to sort through and some decisions to make, while Ava flounders, wanting what she couldn’t have…  Both of them needed to find their place in the world. Great novella. I really enjoyed it.

There is also an interesting beginning to From the Start.  And if this was meant to pique my interest in Ms. Tagg’s new book, it worked like a charm. A hunky football player with demons. A writer—without words. A tornado that puts them together in the same place… and instant tension. I’ll have to look for From the  Start to finish the story.

If you like contemporary romance, and novellas, you might be interested in reading this e-short, THREE LITTLE WORDS.

5 stars. Available in ebook. 144 pages.
