Book Review: "When I Fall in Love" by Susan May Warren

I was given a free paperback copy of "When I Fall in Love" by Susan May Warren by Tyndaleblognetwork in exchange for my honest review.

Grace Christiansen can't imagine herself leaving Deep Haven.  When her family surprises her with a culinary retreat to Hawaii, she has to muster the courage to get on the plane.  While she is there, she becomes friends with Max Sharpe, who helps her reach for more than she realizes she ever wanted.  Max suffered through his dad dying from Huntington's Disease and doesn't want to let anyone go through that, so he tries to keep himself from falling in love with Grace.  Can they discover God's plan for their lives?

I had previously read Susan Warren's "It Had to be You" and was glad to be able to read another chapter in the lives of the Christiansen family.  Besides the story line with Grace and Max, Susan Warren also gives us the story of Raina Beaumont, Grace's assistant, and her search for a place to fit in.  I was also glad to be able to spend time with the couples from the previous books, as well.

The characters in "When I Fall in Love" are real and believable.  I've seen Huntington's. I've seen the deterioration that comes with it.  I haven't been as close to it as a family member, but I saw it in the mother of some of my students.  I can relate with how Max felt about not wanting to make anyone go through that.  I really enjoyed reading "When I Fall in Love" and almost wish I had discovered the series after all the books were finished so I could just read them all at once and not have to wait!

"When I Fall in Love" has kissing, hand holding, and one instance of what happened the morning after a couple "hooked up", but nothing is described about what happened.

I would recommend this book to those who enjoy Inspirational Romance stories.
