When I Fall in Love

When I Fall in Love
A Christiansen Family Novel
Susan May Warren

Grace is perfectly content to remain in Deep Haven her entire life. But when her family surprises her with a trip to Hawaii for a cooking class she decides to face her fears and leave her home. Max has fears and issues of his own, but he agrees to help Grace find her way around since Hawaii is a second home for him.
Raina is having some difficulties of her own. She's run into a problem with one of the Christiansens that seems insurmountable. Her dream would be to join this wonderful family. But her past mistakes might make that dream unattainable.

I typically love this author's books. But this book didn't resonate with me like usual. Her style of writing is to add two stories seamlessly together to make one story that involves the same town or family. But the stories didn't mesh well for me this time. I couldn't relate to the characters and one member of the family really turned me off. I realize it made the story very authentic, but he was just a bit too much for me. The story also had a slight negative vibe to it because of the issues the couples were going through. Without spoilers I can't give many details, but it just didn't click with me. 
This will not deter me from reading more by this author. It just means this book won't be a favorite.

I received this book free of charge from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
