Book Description

99¢ Special

Katie Morgan has her future planned. It doesn’t include becoming serious about anyone before she achieves her goals, not even her handsome boss. Just because she does not have time to date, doesn’t mean her boss shouldn’t. Her new mission…to make her boss happy, whether or not he wants to be.

Wade McAlester fell in love with Katie the first day she walked into his clinic looking for a job. He hired her, content to settle for friendship until she lives out her dream of becoming a vet. Against his better judgment, Wade allows her to fix him up with a couple of her friends. The dates are disastrous. He can’t believe the kind of women Katie seems to think he’d enjoy spending his life with. However, when Wade’s old colleague, Dr. Laura Redmond shows up, Katie is rethinking how happy she wants her boss to be, and with whom. Definitely not the gorgeous doctor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story! September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Katie Morgan has one goal in mind: finish college and become a vet. She has no idea her study helper and boss, Wade McAlester, has more than friendship on his mind when it comes to their relationship.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Falling In Love with the Seasons of the Heart Series September 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wade is in his thirties, a gifted veterinarian and single. Katie, his younger assistant and friend, can't seem to figure out why he hasn't found the love of his life yet.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so Christian novella October 22, 2012
By Iola
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Katie (age 22), thinks that her friend and boss, Wade (at 30) really should settle down, so decides to fix him up with a few dates. Wade is perfectly happy to be single, because he's in love with Katie... but she's so much younger, he's her boss and he even lectures her college classes sometimes. A relationship isn't an option. This had the potential to be a nice friends-to-lovers plot (well, lovers in the Victorian sense, given that this is a Christian novel).

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for mature readers November 29, 2012
By Keisha
Format:Kindle Edition
So disappointed in this book. The other customer reviews are high but I really don't see why. I can can only guess that the majority of the readers must be the same age as Katie, 22, no offense. Wade has been in love with Katie for years and hasn't verbally expressed it because she wants to concentrate on school? Yet he has shown her in so many ways and she giggles it off. Not much of a story line at all. Katie came across blind or dumb, which I don't think was the authors intention. I couldn't see why Wade, and older man wanted to marry her. I was not even remotely interested in the book that followed. Its not awful, but I do think that the target audience is women in their 20's or younger, with all the giggling and tickling each other...Really? Did I, really act that once upon a time? Wow!

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and Sweet September 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're a fan of Jane Austin's Emma, and would love to get more into Knightly's head - this book is for you. Swoon-worthy Wade is the perfect modern example of Mr. Knightly and he captures the heart from page one. Kate on the other hand is totally clueless, and like Emma, continuously fails at her match-making skills. There were times where I really could have smacked her in the head. Overall a fun read and a sweet romance.

The story was wonderful overall, but it ended abruptly and didn't really pursue the jealously concept. It was a bit of a disappointment but overall good story.
