Review- Three Little Words by Melissa Tagg

Goodreads Summary:

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!


Author Melissa Tagg's novella, Three Little Words, is free on Amazon. I've been digging novellas lately, that's how I came across it. And I am glad I did. Three Little Words was a very cute and enjoyable story that I devoured in spite of it being a romance, a genre I'm not the most fond of. However, I do enjoy my share of mature and thoughtful Adult Romances here and there, and this one turned out to be super sweet. 

Ava lost the love of her life in a skiing accident. A tomboy since childhood, she has always wanted to coach a football team, a passion she isn't able to follow, as a woman. She decides to stop by her school reunion with the hopes of meeting her father figure professor, but ends up bumping into Seth, her classmate and constant email bickering partner, who has opened a new restaurant in his hometown and invites Ava over for the summer. 

Ava was a very sweet and different girl. Although she seemed really simple and ordinary at first, I really liked her determination to follow her heart even when it wasn't possible. I also admired her for taking a step ahead, rather than waiting for the man to do it. Seth was just as wonderful as Ava. He was teasing her in the most enjoyable ways, and when together, Ava and Seth seemed really at ease and peace. They were totally meant for each other. Their email and face to face conversations were fun to read. 

I also really enjoyed reading about Seth's restaurant, The Red Door, that he started just below his uncle and cousins' apartment. The family was really warm and kind, and that always adds a wonderful touch to novellas. Three Little Words was a very cute read that had a bit of everything ranging from family to friendship, love to hate, bickering to normal discussions, emails to real talk and so much more. The end was super sweet, and I really liked it. I hope to read more books from the Walker Family series sometime.
