Book Review: Falling for You by Becky Wade

Book Details:
Title Falling for You
Series: Bradford Sisters Romance #2
Author: Becky Wade
2018, Bethany House
Genre: Contemporary Christian Fiction

Book Summary:
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.

My Review:
Becky Wade is one of my favorite authors... Christian or not. I love the way she crafts her characters. They are real and emotional and the story is interesting. This book was no different and I loved it start to finish. 

This is the second book in the Bradford Sisters Romance series. Although I loved the first book in the series, I loved the main character of Willow so much more in this book than I did her sister Nora in the last one. It is not necessary to read the first book before this one. I think it would stand alone perfectly fine. Also.... I love that it is set in Mason County, Washington.... which is just one county over from where I live. It is always fun to read a book that is basically set in your backyard.

Willow and Corbin have a difficult and messy romance. They had dated four years previous to this book and had an extremely messy breakup and have been thrown together by Corbin's 12 year old niece. They don't trust or like each other, but have agreed to work together on a mystery for Charlotte's sake. Of course, their old attraction returns, issues are resolved and God works in both their hearts.

Becky Wade always throws in an interesting secondary story. This time Charlotte has discovered a box of old papers in her grandma's closet about a great-aunt who disappeared many years ago and it was never discovered what became of her. Corbin, Willow and Charlotte work together to unravel the 40 year old clues to try to figure out what happened to this women all those years ago.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House Publishers, for my honest opinion. No other compensation was received and all thoughts and opinions are strictly my own.
