As a fan of the romance genre, I loved this book. I just breezed through it.
Chris Montgomery is in special forces and after a fatal injury moves to his grandfather’s house in a small town called Lambert Falls. Angie works in a diner full time and is quite happy and content with the way her life is. After her parents death she lives with her younger sister and her uncle Bobby who is a police officer in the town.
For Angie, Lambert Falls is a place she calls home, a place where she knows everything about everyone, a place where people take care of each other, whether related or not. Enter Chris. Although the attraction is immediate and intense Angie holds back until she is sure that Chris will not leave town and will settle there. For Angie, Lambert Falls is a very important part of her, unlike Chris who has lived in so many places that he does not know what it is to feel so strongly about a place.
This book is escapism at its best. It sweeps you off and takes you into a small southern town where everything is almost perfect. But the best part about the book is the way the author has depicted Angie’s struggle to choose between 2 things she loves so much. Trust me, I have been there. I could identify with the way she felt and with the way she kept on tossing the pros and cons around, not sleeping and crying at the drop of a hat. It was a little painful to read though. The only complain I have is that the book dragged a little at the end.
Otherwise considering it’s a debut novel, it’s a pretty good read. I wanted to read a romance book for a long time and somehow anything I read in that genre did not satisfy me. This one surely did.
