Unfortunately, Falling in Love is full of problems. There is constant head-hopping back and forward between the characters (to the point where I was constantly backtracking to try and work out whose thoughts I was reading) and awkward sentence constructions ("Careful not to cause the kitten, which had grown considerably in the last couple months, any more pain, he laid it down on the towel." What?).
In addition, it used unnecessary adverbs, was confusing with two characters with the same name (Margaret the wannabe model and Margaret who runs the orphanage - do they even have orphanages in America any more?), there was redundancy (big surprise that the brunette had brown hair), there were several saccharine moments of mutual admiration between the hero and heroine, and an ending that was cheesy beyond belief - even for a romance. I might have forgiven the ending if I wasn't so frustrated by the head-hopping in particular and the writing in general.
I have read another novella by Susette Williams, published in The Quakers of New Garden (Romancing America). Hers was my favourite novella of the collection, a challenging and believable story with none of the editing issues that Falling in Love has. I guess that's why I'm so disappointed in this - I know that she can do better.
In fact, Katie feels bad that Wade spends most of his free time with her when really he should be married and raising children. That's when she's struck with the 'brilliant' idea of setting him up on blind dates.
Blind-sided is more like it. The two attempts Katie makes to pair her boss up with 'likely' candidates go horribly, horribly wrong, especially when one of the young ladies in question carries pepper spray in her purse and has no qualms about using it. On him.
Susette Williams brings yet another of her signature zany and fast-paced plots to life in Falling In Love. You won't want to miss this first book in the Seasons Of The Heart series.
Katie's obsession with finding Wade the right woman and his obsession with her collide in a very predictable, but deliciously romantic story line.
The tug of war over friendship boundaries and mounting romantic desires send Wade to prayer again and again.
Tension? Oh my goodness! The romantic tension between the characters is almost tangible. Notice I said romantic tension not sexual tension. I love the clean approach the author takes with them. The innocence of every touch and the silent prayers behind every feeling make this a story you could comfortably share with your teenage daughter.
Very well written scenes stir up the reader to root for a romance that seems to be more than a passing fancy. Wade and Katie have all the markings of forever love, if they could just get out of their heads and make a move already.
Falling In Love is a quick read full of heart. You'll swoon through each page, your eyes glued until the very last sentence and you'll no doubt put it down satisfied.
