In this diverting contemporary romance from Mallery (Someone Like You), wedding cake designer Gracie Landon was shipped off at age 14 to live with relatives when her obsessive crush on 18-year-old Riley Whitefield became a local media item and an embarrassment to her family. Now, 14 years later, she's back in Los Lobos, Calif., to create a cake for her younger sister's wedding while aching to be part of the family that turned her out. Her mother is as unloving and judgmental as ever, and both her sisters are self-absorbed drama queens. Despite her family's selfish demands, Gracie, with all her eagerness to please, bends over backwards to accommodate their requests; sister Vivian demands a fabulous wedding cake that will take weeks of preparation, while sister Alexis insists that Gracie trail her husband, Zeke, whom she believes is having an affair. Since Zeke is Riley's campaign manager in his race for mayor of Los Lobos, prowling around Riley's house seems the right place for Gracie to start, but her snooping only puts her and Riley on the front page of the local press. While dirty politics, a vengeful ex-wife and a lot of backstory drama plump up the story line, some readers may find themselves wishing for a heroine who's less of a doormat.

Gracie Landon became a legend at age 14 when her longing for 18-year-old Riley Whitefield turned her into a stalker. Everyone in Los Lobos remembers the tales of Gracie's exploits, including the time she nailed Riley's girlfriend's door shut so she couldn't go out with him. The newspaper even carried "The Gracie Chronicles." Now Gracie is a celebrity wedding cake designer. Her sister is getting married, and Gracie is back in town for the first time since her youthful indiscretions. Riley just so happens to be running for mayor, and Gracie's brother-in-law, Zeke, is his campaign manager. When Gracie's sister suspects that Zeke is having an affair, Gracie tries to trail him. Unfortunately, Riley catches Gracie sleuthing, and since he, too, has a vested interest in Zeke's reputation, he joins her. More than a romance, Mallory has crafted a fine tale of small-town life, family relationships, and forgiveness. At times funny, at times bittersweet, this story will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers. Shelley Mosley

Years later Gracie has become a wedding cake baker and is building her business. She is back to help with her sisters wedding, however she did not know Riley was going to be in town as well. Riley, now divorced, and when he catches Gracie in a compromising situation he doesn't know if he should have her arrested or believe her excuse. It becomes clear to Riley that Gracie is adorable now and if he was a man who was willing to commit, Gracie would be all his. Could his path in life make an unexpected change and what is it about Gracie that has him questioning all of his plans?
This was so much fun, Gracie is a hoot. This is one of those books that has you cracking up without and Gracie's back story was a bit of a surprise. I definitely will be reading more in this series.
ANYWAY, needless to say I was hooked immediately.
This book was amazing. RILEY was the perfect brooding male and Gracie was funny, honest, sweet and the perfect heroine.
The way Susan created Gracie' s two sisters had me wanting to slap them silly and Don't get me started on Mom. SUSAN created such vivid characters I was sucked into the story as if it was real. The story leapt off the pages and I could not put it down. I read it in one day.
Trust me, you will LOVE Falling for Gracie!
