5-Star Review of "Three Little Words"

Review of Three Little Words

by Melissa Tagg


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!

MY REVIEW:   What a sweet, surprising little romance !  I will freely admit that I prefer romances with a bit of mystery or historical features to them.  This romance had no mystery and no historical features but it did have plenty of excitement and fun.   And lots and lots of romance.  It is almost impossible not to fall in love with Seth and Ava.   Their arguing and bickering just add to the fun of this romance.  
      I've never particularly wanted to travel to Michigan or Iowa either but this book makes me wonder what interesting treasures might just lie in wait in these two states.  I grew up in a very small town in Virginia and small towns hold a special attraction for me.   The little Iowa town of Maple Valley certainly boasts of a few neat little places to explore.   So grab a copy and your kindle and curl up for a while and listen for those three little words. 
      I just had to rate this book 5 stars because it is just that wonderful!   Readers are sure to love it!
