FINDING MY GIRL / LOVING TALIA is a companion booklet to the contemporary romance novel, LOVE LIKE OURS (Sugar Lake series).

If this is your first Melissa Foster book, please note that Finding My Girl / Loving Talia is not a novel, a novella, or even a typical short story. It is a companion booklet to the full-length contemporary romance novel, Love Like Ours, featuring Talia Dalton and Derek Grant. In Love Like Ours, one of the many ways Derek shows his love for Talia is through cute and loving sketches depicting their lives as they came together. Finding My Girl / Loving Talia is a collection of those images, along with a couple of images that Jonah, Derek's father, had drawn for his wife, Eva. Within these pages you will also find heartfelt messages from Derek to Talia that are not found in the original novel. As a bonus, I have included the first chapter of Love Like Ours in the back of the booklet.

I hope you enjoy this quick, visual adaptation of Derek and Talia's journey into coupledom. To read their full-length love story, please buy Love Like Ours, a Sugar Lake novel (available in digital, paperback, and audio formats).

Loved, loved, loved this companion book (I never knew what that was until this book) but it was great!!! I loved “Love Like Ours” and this just added another element!! Read both!!!
NadineBookaholic More than 1 year ago
This book was amazing, I loved Talia and Derek's story in Love Like Ours and the little sneak peaks of his drawings, this book is compiled of not only Derek's drawings and notes to Talia but also his father's drawings to his mother, Jonah and Eva. So sweet!!! This is a companion booklet so please make sure you have read Love Like Ours before you read this otherwise it will contain spoilers and where's the fun in that? I haven't read a graphic novel or graphic image book before so this was a new concept for me and I have to admit I really liked it. Some may say it's a picture book but it's oh so much more than that. The drawings were absolutely amazing, the illustrator, Oliver Harbour, is beyond talented, the story really came to life in the sketches and the little love notes that went along with them really added to the story. I would love to see more companion booklets like this when it fits into the story. I recieved an eARC of this companion booklet but I ordered a paperback copy for myself because it was just that good!

I loved Derek and Talia' story. This companion book was a great enhancement for their story! The illustrations were wonderful and brought Derek's drawings to life. I liked it a lot! I received an advance copy in return for an honest review.

What a wonderful artistic depiction of Derek and Talia's love story as seen through Derek's eyes. The sketches are so real that you learn how they met and their journey to their HEA. I also enjoyed seeing Derek's dad's drawings as they greatly influenced the man Derek became. Finding My Girl is a companion booklet to Love Like Ours. If you haven't read Love Like Ours, you definitely need to read it first! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

This book is a companion book to Love Like Ours. The book is drawings by Derek that depict his relationship with Talia. The way things start and develop, some thing he see for their future and also some drawings his father did for Derek's Mom. Having read Love Like Ours a while before reading this, there were some drawings that reminded me of things in the book that I had forgotten about. The drawings and feelings that are put into each picture is amazing. I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

Adorable! A companion booklet that is amazingly illustrated with heartfelt messages and sketches from Derek to Talia. Following his feelings as they meet and they start having romantic feelings for one another. A very clever and unique added bonus for anyone who has read, “Love Like Ours” by Melissa Foster. This should be read after the romance novel. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This was such a sweet companion book. I loved Derek and Talia’s story but when you put drawings to the things you read about it makes it even more interesting. You can see how Derek feels about Talia through his eyes which is a total heart melt for me. The pictures his father did was also nice to see. This was a great follow-up to Derek and Talia’s Love Like Ours.

Oh, this was just perfect! All through Love Like Ours we are told about Derek's gift of artistry and we know about his journal but this is the actual journal he gives to Talia. It is just perfect! We are treated with drawings and memories from beginning to...well...where they leave off at the end of the story. Didn't I say perfect? I meant it.

What a brilliant idea to have a booklet showing all the drawings that expressed how much Derek loves Talia ; it’s a powerful and wonderful love letter bursting with deep true feelings . I loved their original story but seeing up close what was described in the first book is really awesome ! I usually like leaving the stories background and characters up to my imagination but this addition to “Love like Ours” book is simply perfect !

Finding My Girl / Loving Talia Sugar Lake 3.5 Author: Melissa Foster Illustrator: Oliver Harbour Reading Love Like Ours was a delight and I remember it clearly even now. I also remember that I wanted to “see” the illustrations mentioned in the book and though I managed to sort of see them in my mind’s eye I have to say having this companion illustrated booklet while reading would make it that much more fun. I loved the book and love the illustrations in the booklet. I thoroughly recommend both to any reader who likes a romance with characters that deserve the happily ever after that Talia and Derek achieve. Family and heart are central to the are the illustrations in this book :) Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

Finding My Girl is a very unique booklet. It is a beautiful mix of narrative and illustration and is a MUST READ as a companion to Melissa Foster’s Love Like Ours. Oliver Harbour’s illustrations are beautiful and truly tell the story of Talia and Derek. It made me feel as though I had found a treasure of love notes from Derek to Talia that I was secretly reading as they seem so personal. This was just beautiful.

Finding My Girl is a companion book to Love Like Ours, Derek & Talia's story. Before reading this I strongly advise reading Love Like Ours first. The illustrations of Finding My Girl are incredible. I enjoyed seeing Derek's point of view. Finding My Girl is a sweet little nugget!

How incredibly sweet this is! This is a companion to Love Like Ours so it should not be read before that. And if you've read Love Like Ours then you know that Derek is always writing Talia love notes and sketching and this is a compilation/journal of all of that. It’s so cute, sexy and beautiful all at the same time and every woman is going to want a Derek after reading this if they didn’t already after reading their actual love story. I adored it! Thank you for this additional book of goodies Melissa Foster!
