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!

Melissa Tagg's first novels were fresh and fun, and her introductory novella to her new Walker Family series continues to delight. Engaging characters and crisp dialogue bring this charming story to life. As a word geek myself, I particularly enjoyed the repartee between Ava and Seth and the way their friendship grew through their banter. While some might deem this series for the twenty-something generation, those of us who are a "few" years beyond that but are still young at heart or have family members in that age range will still enjoy this novella. And the price certainly can't be beat! Watch for my review of Tagg's upcoming Walker Family novel From the Start, coming very soon!
