Falling for You by Becky Wade
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Falling for You is the second in a series by Becky Wade.
Synopsis: Willow Bradford is content taking a break from modeling to run her family's inn until she comes face-to-face with NFL quarterback Corbin Stewart, the man who broke her heart--and wants to win her back. When a decades-old missing-persons case brings them together, they're forced to decide whether they can risk falling for one another all over again.
Unlike the first book in the series, this book dealt with characters with professions of which I have no background knowledge: fashion modeling and professional sports. However, the struggles of the characters were believable--many things within the human experience are universal, after all. I actually found myself more engaged in the subplot with Charlotte searching for her great-aunt, who went missing long before she was born. The mystery of that and the investigative process, although possibly meant to get Willow and Corbin back together, was more engaging for me than seeing if the two leads were truly going to work out their differences.
I enjoyed the book, and it was well-written, but like many series I've read it has a bit of "book two" syndrome, perhaps a bridge between the first and third. Nevertheless, I will definitely read book three, because that story will be a really good one based on the hints the author drops within this book.
Recommended for fans of contemporary Christian women's fiction.
