ABOUT THE BOOK

High-powered Boston attorney Emma Madison is celebrating her latest courtroom victory when she gets a call from a number she doesn't recognize. Area code 803 home. Juneberry, South Carolina eight hundred miles, twelve years, and a lifetime away from Boston. Emma's father has had a serious heart attack. Emma rushes to his bedside, and a weekend trip threatens to become an extended stay. She has to work fast to arrange the affairs of his small-town law practice so she can return to her life and career in Boston.

And then Michael Evans shows up. They'd shared hopes, dreams, and a passionate love as young college students during a long-ago summer. But Emma walked away from Michael and from Juneberry to finish college and start a new life. Michael has never forgotten her.

Enveloped in the warmth of family and small-town life and discovering that she still cares for Michael Emma knows she'll have to make a choice between the career she's worked so hard to build and the love she left behind.

MY REVIEW:
This book is a sweet love story in three parts. There is the main love connection between Emma and Michael - high powered, on the rise attorney and stayed home in small town, making good carpenter who were in love and separated 12 years ago when she just left one day and didn't come back. Can he forgive her? Can she figure out what is important in her life?
Then there is the couple that have been married for years and are having their fourth baby - how do they sustain the flame?
And what about the dating couple where he has been burned by his first wife and doesn't want to go through that again and she just keeps praying that God will heal him so they can be together...

All 3 couples weave through this book and it really is a good story of how you can always come home.

I will be giving away a copy of it so if it sounds like your kind of book then leave a comment with your email and I will get you entered - good luck!

My favorite type of book is the relationship drama, and A Beautiful Fall certainly fits that description. Actually, it's been on my list for a while. Thank you so much for the chance to win a copy.

WOW! Three stories twisted together and in between one book cover. I hate making decisions, I'm glad I'm not these people but would love to read about how their choices turn out.
