"Ms. Force has the ability to make you fall in love with her Island and all of the quirky and sweet characters that reside there. I can't wait to read the next story in this fantastic series! FALLING FOR LOVE is another keeper in the McCarthy's of Gansett Island series!"―Joyfully Reviewed
From the Author
Welcome back to Gansett Island! You first met Grant McCarthy in READY FOR LOVE. I have to admit he was a bit of an enigma to me because he's not like a lot of my guys who know exactly what--and who--they want and go after it (her) with all their considerable charm. Grant is rather conflicted. His heart is telling him one thing while his body is sending him a different message altogether. After READY FOR LOVE, a lot of you were evenly divided between Team Abby and Team Stephanie. As the architect of Grant's story, I had to choose the best woman for him, and I hope you'll agree with my decision. In this book, you'll hear from some of our old favorites and meet some new friends.
Writing about this family and their life on an island so much like my beloved Block Island has been the most fun I've ever had as a writer. Thank you for embracing my fictional family and for all the lovely reviews you've posted. I appreciate your e-mails and Facebook posts more than you'll ever know. I always love to hear from readers. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're not yet on my mailing list and wish to be added for occasional updates on future books, join here. Also, join us on Facebook at Marie Force Book Talk where we talk about my books, other books and lots of stuff that has nothing to do with books! You can also join the fun at the McCarthys of Gansett Island Reader Group where we talk about important topics such as which of the Gansett Island men we wouldn't kick out of bed. When each new book is released, we form a separate group to dish about the new story. Join the Falling for Love Reader Group when you finish the book.
While FALLING FOR LOVE is intended to be a stand-alone story, you will enjoy it more if you have read MAID FOR LOVE, FOOL FOR LOVE and READY FOR LOVE first.
Thanks to my brilliant behind-the-scenes team: Linda Ingmanson edits for me, Jessica Jones and Mike Myers proofread and Kristina Brinton has taken over the cover design job.
As of January 2012, I became a full-time writer. Thanks to all the wonderful readers who made it possible for me to realize a dream come true!

Marie Force has yet to write a book that I don't love. She writes about such wonderful characters in very interesting situations. You are so drawn to her characters that they start to feel like family. Not only do we get Grant and Stephanie's story in this novel, but she continues past stories and introduces new characters that you will want to follow in future books. Her descriptions of Gansett Island make you want to go see Rhode Island's Block Island. You can almost smell the ocean as you are reading. And, it wouldn't be too horrible to be trapped on that island with those yummy McCarthys for a week or so!
This is where Marie excels. She gives us variety in human-personality. Obviously; each character is well fleshed-out BEFORE pen (or keyboard) is taken in hand. As a reader of a few thousand romance-genre novels - I NOTICE the difference in Marie's writing. I NOTICE the small things she gives us that so many others leave out for sake of saving time.
It's the details that make such a difference in the reader's enjoyment and entertainment.
Marie delivers and has in EVERY one of her books and I've now read them all to this date on my review.
I love the Gansett Island series and recommend it highly and equally so the 'FATAL' series. Oh heck; every book Marie has written is fantastic reading; even the stand alone novels.
I can hardly wait for the next 'FATAL' series book and the next 'GANSETT-ISLAND' book - both of which are coming soon. Special mention to the 'TREADING WATER TRILOGY' which I wish was going beyond the 3rd novel. It too: quite wonderful!
What else did I love about this particular book? That we were updated on all the characters that came out in the prior GANSETT ISLAND books. It's like one big family and I love it from beginning to end.
Thank you Marie!
This is the story of Grant, who we met previously and was an accomplished writer. Although recently, his life seemed to be falling apart. He had not been writing for a while, he had no job, and his girlfriend of 10 years left him and come to find out, she was engaged to someone else! Stephanie was a lovely, hardworking girl who ran the restaurant at the McCarthy marina. Everyone loved her and though she was sweet and accomodating. Grant was always fighting with her, but during his sister Janey's wedding, he decides to make his ex jealous by flirting and having a good time with Stephanie. The more time they spend together, the more they begin to know each other.
The book was so enjoyable and the romance was off the charts! The romance scenes were hot and I felt it worked well with the book, especially when making us see the connection between Stephanie and Grant. It was fantastic to see how everyone from previous books were present and their stories continued on during this book. I cannot wait to see what is going to happen next in this island and to all those people I have come to love. Ms Force has done it again and I would give this book 6 stars if Amazon would allow it! :)
