Before the Prescott name became big in the hockey world, there was just Noah Prescott, fighting for a spot on an NHL roster. Never did he imagine a simple note from a shy fan would speed up his world.

Ryleigh Scott had an issue talking to men, but she knew she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk to Noah — potentially negative labels, be damned. Never did she imagine a simple note would start what could only be described as the beginning of the rest of her life.

This is Noah and Ryleigh — before the NHL contract, before the kids, before going back home.

This is Noah and Ryleigh from the beginning.



Opening Line

“Of all the stupid, juvenile things I could have done, that certainly put the icing on the cake.”

What a great read! I really did not know what to expect when I signed up for this blog tour. Something about the synopsis just caught my attention and I decided to give it a go, and am I ever happy I did!

The opening line was so catchy and immediately grabbed my attention. As I continued reading I just couldn’t put From the Beginning down! I ended up finishing it in 3 sittings, and it probably easily could have been 1 if I did not have to work.

Noah Prescott is your typical hockey player who’s trying to make it into the NHL and not looking for love or anything long term. Now Ryleigh, who was hands down my favourite character, was shy and quiet and not at all what Noah expected. While these two seemed like opposites I found their relationship blossomed easily! The intensity between them had me rooting for them from the beginning. HA! See what I did there?

Around of applause for Mignon for such an amazing debut novel! The writing style was easy to follow and I never found there to be any point throughout From the Beginning that was filled with fluff or unnecessary chapters. I really cannot wait to read the next book in this series! Hopefully the wait won’t be long!

Mignon Mykel

Mignon is a twenty-something (…getting awfully close to thirty-something) who resides in Wisconsin. An avid reader since her preschool days, she ‘blames’ her mother for teaching her to read during that all-important time during a forming brain. Some of her earlier memories of reading include her mother buying her a book at the mall — and finishing the book before they even returned home.

Writing happened soon after the reading started. Her first writing piece can be found in a box of other important papers from growing up. It’s about an apple who was her friend, but she had to eat.

The first series Mignon started to write was about a close family of one brother and his three younger sisters. She started writing this family and their friends in 2005, but as soon as the Prescott family took over her mind, the Ashbys fell silent. Maybe someday we’ll all hear from the Ashbys, but those Prescotts…. The Prescotts are excited to have their stories told.
