All this Time (Walker Family, #4)
Bear McKinley’s past refuses to let go. Ten years ago, Bear gave up everything—his freedom and his reputation—for his mess of a family. But after years of distance and too many attempts at starting over, he finally has a new life doing noble work in Brazil . . . until his past catches up to him once again. Suddenly he finds himself back in Maple Valley, charged with the care of his missing brother’s children, convinced he’s out of second chances to make his life count. And yet, with every day that passes, these kids, this quirky town and the woman he never stopped missing help patch the holes in his heart. Maybe this is the fresh start he’s been longing for all along. But as his newfound hope grows, so does the mystery surrounding his brother’s activities—and when the threat reaches into the lives of those he loves, it’s clear he can’t run away this time. Fear holds Raegan’s future captive. Raegan Walker is fine. She’s happy working a slew of part-time jobs, still living in her childhood bedroom and rarely venturing from her hometown. At least, that’s what she tells everyone . . . and herself. But she can’t help wondering what might’ve happened if she hadn’t abandoned her art so many years ago—and if Bear McKinley had never left. When Bear returns and she’s commissioned for a painting that just might revive her artistic ambition all in one week, it’s time to finally reach for more than fine. But doing so means facing the fears that have held her back all this time, including admitting the secret she’s kept from Bear and her family. With her dream and her heart on the line, how much will Raegan have to risk to finally chase her happy ending?

    All This Time is the last book in the Walker family series, and while I’m a bit sad that it’s over, Raegan’s (and Bear’s!) story wrapped things up beautifully. I usually say that Melissa Tagg is one of my favorite contemporary fiction authors, which is still true, but after reading this series and loving this family, I can honestly say she is one of my favorite authors, period. Her characters are so memorable; I love their interactions and have especially enjoyed the different ways each sibling All This Time is the last book in the Walker family series, and while I’m a bit sad that it’s over, Raegan’s (and Bear’s!) story wrapped things up beautifully. I usually say that Melissa Tagg is one of my favorite contemporary fiction authors, which is still true, but after reading this series and loving this family, I can honestly say she is one of my favorite authors, period. Her characters are so memorable; I love their interactions and have especially enjoyed the different ways each sibling interacts with the other. When Logan and Raegan had a heart to heart, oh my, it was just so sweet but also realistic.Throughout the course of this series, Maple Valley became a real place to me and the Walker family real people. Their interconnected stories have been both humorous and poignant, and each bring up a unique issue or conflict within the story. Raeghan’s story is no different. Though Raeghan loves Maple Valley, she has been hiding a secret her family that has kept her tied down and afraid to leave. Bear’s past has kept him tied down emotionally, and despite traveling all the way to Brazil, he can’t outrun his past. Something that really drew me into the story was the predicament of Bear’s family. His nephew and niece tugged at my heart strings. I’ve also always found Raeghan to be the more mysterious of the Walker siblings, so I loved getting her perspective on things. The two of them separately are intriguing, layered characters. Together, they are just utterly adorable. Their bond feels realistic because they were friends for so long, and Tagg definitely captures the tender shift from friendship to something deeper.There is just something cozy and lovable yet realistic about these stories. Tagg excels at creating characters evoke empathy, situations that feel unique but universal to the human experience, and romances that simmer with both tension and sweetness. Though sadness is realistically portrayed, hope is always present. I recommend the entire Walker family series to readers of contemporary, inspirational fiction. And do start from the beginning. While I suppose this could be read as a standalone, I think that there is something special to building up to the last book after being with the Walkers for so long.

    My thoughts are swirling around inside my head as I just finished this book, and had to say goodbye to the Walker Family. This, Raegan and Bear's story, is the last. I've grown to love Maple Valley and the Walkers and all the quirkiness of the town. So, it is with sadness, that I read the last word and begin this review.Raegan Walker and Bear McKinley have been here a long time in our hearts even before Tagg told their story. I've cared for them from afar until this book, and now I love them. Tw My thoughts are swirling around inside my head as I just finished this book, and had to say goodbye to the Walker Family. This, Raegan and Bear's story, is the last. I've grown to love Maple Valley and the Walkers and all the quirkiness of the town. So, it is with sadness, that I read the last word and begin this review.Raegan Walker and Bear McKinley have been here a long time in our hearts even before Tagg told their story. I've cared for them from afar until this book, and now I love them. Two flawed individuals who learn to accept the grace and mercies of God. Raegan Walker is nearly paralyzed with fear and has been for years. She has been keeping secrets from her family, a family that would love nothing more than to help her if they had only known she needed help. Then Bear McKinley shows back up in Maple Valley, along with his 11 year old nephew and 5 year old niece. The last time she said goodbye to him, she thought it was a final goodbye. Bear had always made her feel they were just friends. Only Raegan knew, for her part, she felt more for Bear McKinley than just friendship. Can she even begin to be around him again, knowing how he feels and she feels?Bear McKinley has always tried to carry the weight of everyone's problems on his shoulders, never thinking of himself at all. He is still doing that. But God's grace is not about carrying problems. It's about letting go and letting that grace surround you. Why is it so hard for Bear to accept this?Then danger comes into Maple Valley and Raegan and Bear are caught in the middle of it. Will they both accept the grace and redemption God offers them? Can they trust that life can be so much better than it is now? Melissa Tagg has been a favorite of mine since her very first book. I eagerly anticipate anything she writes. She has an uncanny ability to create characters that feel like they have just leapt off the page and straight into the reader's heart. She plumbs the emotional depths of these characters. Every single one. I love the quirkiness she adds to each member of the Walker family, too. Seriously, she has created a town I want to visit. No, a town in which I'd love to live. There are few fictional towns that hold that appeal for me and Maple Valley is one. I so very much hate to see this series end, but I do look forward to what Tagg has in store for us next. *I was given a preview copy of this book. My review is my own honest opinion.

    As I finished this amazing book I was torn in equal parts. Half of me was shouting yes, yes, YES! Because it really was that good. I knew it would be good. I have read and loved every single book and novella in this gorgeous Walker Family series, I have longed for Raegan and Bear's story, and yet I was still surprised by just how much I loved this sorry.

Have I menti As I finished this amazing book I was torn in equal parts. Half of me was shouting yes, yes, YES! Because it really was that good. I knew it would be good. I have read and loved every single book and novella in this gorgeous Walker Family series, I have longed for Raegan and Bear's story, and yet I was still surprised by just how much I loved this sorry. But while I was internally celebrating (because who wouldn't love that ending) I was also mourning. Because this is the last book. Have I mentioned how much I love this family? Perhaps Melissa Tagg could be pursuaded to extend the series. I would be totally up for a novella about Chase Walker. Or what about a book set in the future a little, I'm sure Jamie or even Erin have a story to tell...Raegan gave her heart to Bear McKinley years ago, but she knew they were never going to have a future, especially when he left for Brazil. But now he is back in Maple Valley, bringing with him his young niece and nephew. While Bear wrestles with his past and the memories he can't seem to outrun, Raegan is unsure of her future and if she can risk her heart again. This fourth book in the Walker Family series is everything that I have loved about the whole series all wrapped up in one book. A family so strong and connected, even if they might sometimes annoy each other with their meddling, a small town that loves celebrations and events, soul searching, faith affirmation, and, of course, sweet romance.I have long been awaiting Bear and Raegan's story, and it didn't disappoint. Bear is carrying a whole load of baggage. It's lucky he has such wide shoulders, but his past is finally catching up with him. It was awesome to finally gain more pieces of his story, but equally heartbreaking. It's easy to see why Raegan loves him so very much. We also learn a lot more about Raegan. She is an easy character to relate to, someone who has let fear impede on her dreams. But helping Bear with his niece and nephew, slowing prying his secrets from him and facing his past head-on together, give Bear and Raegan their chance for a future. I loved the end of this book, loved the suspense and surprise of it all. And yes, while it is really sad to have reached the end of this series, I can delight in a really well-written story and a beautiful romance.

A charming setting, an adorable, quirky family, and a sweet love story make the perfect combination. The spiritual growth of the characters deepens the lesson for them and the readers.I love seeing friendships grow into something much more. It's just so romantic. :) These two have a history, a bond formed over many years, and they can only deny their feelings for so long. Their relationship grew so naturally, so perfectly. I loved how they were there for each other through some difficult things and showed their love through their support. There was a hint of mystery and some surprising twists that rounded out the ending really well. I couldn't quite guess how it would end and I was sad to say goodbye.The story could stand alone, but you'll enjoy it so much more if you are familiar with the rest of the family and their stories. I'd recommend starting from the beginning and enjoy meeting the whole crew. They'll become like family, I promise! :)I received a free copy from the author. No review, positive or otherwise, was required—all opinions are my own.

    Best Walker book yet/my personal favorite. The sensitivity and boldness Tagg weaves through out the heavier subject matter while keeping the beloved family important--and the romance alive and beautifully well done as always--is nothing short of superb. She's done it again. Absolutely stunning finale to this series that had me laughing, taking notes, crying, and reading super slow at the end because I didn't want to say goodbye.

Melissa Tagg knows how to write a good story. I've loved all of her books, but she just keeps getting better and better. Bear is such a broken, but lovable character. These characters played a part in the previous three books and it was wonderful for them to finally have their own story. While this is the fourth book and I highly recommend reading the first books, I think this book could stand on its own. It was sad to know that this was the ending of the series. The author really captured the essence of small town living and the meaning of family. The reader becomes a part of the story and family members become theirs. This is a Christian fiction with emphasis on faith and salvation. The romance is clean, the characters are authentic, and the plot is well written. I would highly recommend this book or any other book by this author.I received a copy of this book. All thoughts expressed are my own.

    I really enjoyed the Walker family in Maple Valley. Friendships n relationships n the dramas that each of the siblings journeyed through as their story unfolded. Bear n Raegan rekindled again under a cloud of mystery from Atlanta and all the town events that got community together. God doesn't want us to walk alone but to have help n support from him n support networks.

    Tagg does it again!! This book is her best yet. If it's not the deliciously hunky hero with a mysterious past, it's the adorable heroine we can all relate to in one way or another. Tagg creates rich romance, characters that feel like real-life friends, and a story that kept me guessing and revealed truths I needed to hear. I'm so sad to see the Walker books end!

    What an amazing story to end the Walker Family Series! I hated to see the end of this last book. The story is written so well, full of compassion and understanding and heart-filled reality which makes it so amazing. The character "Bear" was mentioned in previous books but little was known about him until now. Raegan Walker has been in love with Bear for 5 years even though she hasn't seen him in most of that time. But he left such a strong impression on her she never got over him.

Raegan Walker has been in love with Bear for 5 years even though she hasn't seen him in most of that time. But he left such a strong impression on her she never got over him. He came back from being in South America and her feelings were still there even though she tried to smother them. Bear started realizing how much Raegan meant to him but life got in the way. Bear's out of state brother disappeared which rattled his wife, Rosa, and she insisted that Bear take her children to spare them from drug dealing bad guys. That was shocking to him but he did his best which was really interesting!Another part of the story involves Raegan's work as an artist which I connected with since I haven't painted with oils for many years myself and I want to get back into it but I always find excuses. The book is a must-read to enjoy all the twists and turns, romance between Raegan and Bear, the niece and nephew, and the Walker family antics! I was given a preview copy of this book.

This book is incredibly relatable and speaks straight to the heart. Bear is an uncle who has had a rough go in life. Reagan is still dealing with the loss of her mother. Both come from completely different worlds and backgrounds, yet they complete each other because they have so much more in common than they realize.If you’re looking for a read where the author creates a story that is original, unique, and fun that is impossible to put down causing you to devour it in one sitting, then this is the book for you. These are characters that will stick with you long after the book/series is over. The small town of Maple Valley will always be a favorite to go back and visit. We get to witness more small-town quirky events that I wish were things I could experience in my town.This was such an emotional rollercoaster with all of the feels. There were moments where I laughed, cooed over the cuteness, cheered, and even cried. I’m sad that this is the last installment in the series because I’m so not ready to let these characters and Maple Valley go. The romance was so fun and cute with original and unique date ideas. Of course, you can’t forget about those small-town quirky events and festivals that I wish happened in real life!There were also quite a few themes that the author touched on. Fear, forgiveness, moving on and letting go, are just a few of those themes.Miss Tagg, you went out with a bang! If you’re reading this, thank you so much for writing a story that is real with real characters who have quirks and struggle with real things. Thank you for using your writing to draw others closer towards God.Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review, which I have given.

While Bear is seeking to outrun his past, Raegan is outrunning her fear, but what is so great is how they help one another face and overcome their struggles. It makes the reader root for them all the more.

    I feel like Melissa does with the ending of the Walker series! NO! Melissa makes every book she writes a joy to read! She puts her heart and soul into her books. This story is about Raegen Walker and her family. She has been in love with Bear as long as she can remember, but he is to busy on the mission field to give her a thought. Sudden circumstances force Bear to come back to the states and when he does he goes to check on his wayward brother. His brother is not there, probably pushing drugs, I feel like Melissa does with the ending of the Walker series! NO! Melissa makes every book she writes a joy to read! She puts her heart and soul into her books. This story is about Raegen Walker and her family.

    Fans of Melissa Tagg's Walker Family series have long been waiting for the story of Reagan and Bear, and it was worth the wait! I wanted to speed through the story, as it was hard to put down, but I also wanted to take my time and savor this last trip to Maple Valley with these characters. The story of Reagan and Bear is tender and beautiful, with a bit of mystery to be solved.I tend to have something in common with the personality of one of the main characters in Me Tagg's books.

This time it was Reagan and how she dealt with loss and fear, but "perfect love casts out fear." I highly recommend this entire series. *I was given an advanced copy of this book. My review is my honest opinion.

    I was so sad to finish this book knowing it was the last book in the Walker series. Melissa just has a way of writing that makes you feel as if you are in the book living right along side the characters. While I have loved all 4 books, I am pretty sure this one is my favorite out of the series. The different twist and turns of the story will keep you on the edge of your seat. Good luck putting the book down once you begin reading it!

Melissa is able to use this story to show that it is okay to ask for help!

    Best one yetI hate to see a great series come to an end but at the same time I'm glad it ended with this book. I still can't get over the fact that such a young author could write such a story with so much truth. My favorite line in the story is "Choose grace". You will have to read the story to know why it's my favorite line. I think I'll put it on a sticky note and look at it every day. I love that the author doesn't crane her faith thoughts down our throats.

    After waiting "All This Time" for the fourth novel in the Walker Family series by Melissa Tagg, you would think I would take my time, savoring each chapter slowly, stretching out the length of time between turning that first page and the last. Nope.Devoured it in one afternoon. And now I have to wait who knows how long until her next book hits shelves, most likely next year. After reading every novel she's written, here's one thing I'm sure of...A Melissa Tagg novel is always worth the wait.

    I rarely write reviews but I just have to say how much I enjoyed All This Time by Melissa Tagg. I might have even gotten up in the middle of the night to read a chapter or two or five, but at the same time I didn't want to get to the last page because then it would be over. The entire four book Walker Family series is the kind of series you don't want to say goodbye to and it's one of those series I'll binge reread. They are that good. So goodbye Walker Family.

    The last of the Walker family series is the story of Raegan Walker and Bear McKinley. They carry secrets and baggage which affects their families and the world around them. Through compassion, grace, conversation, and tears - they find restoration. I will leave the rest for you to discover. All This Time may be my favorite of the Walker family series. I miss them all already.

    I waited since the first Walker book for Rae and Bear's story. It was worth the wait. It was amazing. I'm still trying to accept that the Walker saga is finished. You need to read this! I'm still processing it all, but it was amazing and I've already read it twice. You will enjoy it!! I love it. THANK YOU MELISSA ❤❤❤ I waited since the first Walker book for Rae and Bear's story.
