Following on from True To You (read my review here), Falling For You picks up the threads of the relationship between Willow and Corbin. Nora and John, the focus of True To You, pop up but aren’t a large part of the story. Corbin’s niece, Charlotte, begs him to allow her to talk to her role model, Willow, about her missing great-aunt. Corbin and Willow are coerced by the wily girl into working with her to solve the mystery and inevitably end up revisiting their own past.
Unlike the first novel, this one keeps a cracking pace! I loved it from page one! Lines like “She hadn’t set foot outside her car, and already, his home was seducing her the way cream seduced cats.” are beautiful and made me smile! It’s full of humour, heart and intrigue. I so enjoyed Willow’s determination and Corbin’s persistence, they are a great duo and the story took several unexpected paths which made it even more delightful! Faith is wrapped in and around each element and the characters reflect back on the journey in informative and inspiring ways such as “She was determined to live her life in sync with God from now on. So if God was ready to do a new thing in her life, then she needed to collect her bravery and embrace change.”
I highly recommend this book, it’s predecessor and am eagerly awaiting book number three! Five out of five for this one!
From the back cover:
Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is taking a temporary break from her hectic schedule to work as the innkeeper at her family’s small-town bed-and-breakfast. She was enjoying the peace of her hometown, Merryweather, Washington, right up until she came face-to-face with Corbin Stewart, the man she loves to hate. A thoughtful rule-follower by nature, Willow threw caution to the wind four years ago when she entrusted her heart to Corbin–and suffered the consequences when it all fell apart.
Former NFL quarterback Corbin is forceful, charming, and accustomed to getting what he wants . . . except where Willow Bradford is concerned. Unable to forget her, he’s never stopped regretting what happened between them. When their paths unexpectedly cross again, he’s determined to make her give him a second chance.
When a decades-old missing persons case finds Corbin and Willow working together, they’re forced to confront their past and who they’ve become–and whether they can risk falling for one another all over again.
