The opening of a camp by Meredith's sister and brother-in-law brought her to Glenbrooke where she met the only man who made her heart leap, Jacob Wilde. He has other ideas about love, however. Strange ideas that work to break Meri's heart. She can't get him out of her mind and out of her life as his newest project brings them closer together.

Meri is a children's book acquisitions editor and Jacob Wilde is an actor looking to turn into a producer with a book and film series. He wants to work with

Waterfalls (Glenbrooke Series #6)
Robin Jones Gunn

Book Summary: Pretty, spunky Meri has never had a problem holding her own with attractive men. But her trip to Glenbrooke, Oregon, takes a decidedly interesting turn when she finds herself sharing a picnic with a man who makes her heart beat in triple time. When she discovers her picnic partner is none other than movie star Jacob Wilde, she loses her characteristic cool and ruins everything! The next time their paths cross, the tables are turned.

It was my first Glenbrooke book and very easy to read even without knowing the earlier stories, perhaps because not much of the story actually does take place in Glenbrooke. The story was okay, nothing special. All the thoughts running around in the head of our heroine slowed the pace a bit too much and detracting from the overall enjoyment. But what really annoyed me was that the blurp on the back of the book told the whole story! It is supposed to be a teaser not a resume!

I tried to like this book I really did. I loved all of the Glenbrooke Series, except for this one. This one was the lone hold out that no library in my area had. I ordered it on ebay, and anxiously saved it for a cross country plane trip.

I was so disappointed. In my opinion, it didn't "read" like she even wrote it, almost like she used a ghost writer.

I am truly enjoying this series of books. This one is about Meredith who works for a publishing company to determine if a manuscript is good enough to publish. She is also the sister of Shelly who the last book was about. Meredith also has some things to get straight and in the process she does some funny stunts.
Ashley Carmichael
By far the best developed, most well rounded character in the series. And the added philosophy development was also a nice level of subtext the other stories lacked.
Hands down my favorite in this already wonderful series. As a teen and even into my mid-20s I relate so much to Meredith and her struggles waiting for God's timing. Sure it's idealistic, but that's what makes it so fun. What if a quirky girl really could capture the attention of a handsome movie star? Considering how far-fetched that is, I think Robin did a great job making everything around it realistic.

On a side note, as a teen I found this book engaging enough that it made me want to be an ed

Another re-read, good book, a bit farfetched perhaps, but still very enjoyable. I love this author and every one of her books I will read again and again.

May 2015 ... enjoyed this re-read ... love the waterfalls ... love the spiritual insight, and I love how all these books wind around familiar characters, but with entirely new and separate stories.
This was the first book I read in the Glenbrooke series (though it's the sixth), and it's my favorite! I absolutely adore it! A sweet, non-typical romance set in the present-time. Movie stars and young women searching for the perfect balance. Humorous and fun, Waterfalls made a perfect summer read for me.
Brooke (i blog 4 books)
4.5 stars

This was such a sweet and wonderfully romantic story ... one of my favorite in this series so far! Meri was a really fun character to get to know. I enjoyed the tension between she and Jake and how she is learning to lean solely on the Lord for her future. Great story!

I wanted to like this book because I'm a huge fan of Robin Jones Gunn; however, this particular book did not earn even a 2 star rating. Sorry Robin!
P.S. Whispers (Glenbrooke #2) is sooo much better!

This was another cute and clean love story. I did get frustrated at times with Jake, and the ending wrapped up very quickly and ended rather suddenly, but overall, another good book in this series.

Read this a couple years ago. Found it cheesy and only mildly interesting. The writing gets to fluffy and unrealistic too. It sadly seems this keeps happening with Christian fiction.

It's been years since I last read this book. I can't promise great writing but it was a nice story and made me want to be an acquisitions editor. I'd like to re-read this book as an adult.

I have a gripe with the cover design...Meri has brown hair on the cover despite the fact the author makes a huge deal of mentioning she colors her hair blonde several times

Very sweet and loving. Allows for someone to seek help through Christ about similar issues within. I only wish that the author would have continued on a bit with the story.

Okay so not only does the main character have a job I would love to have, but she falls for a movie star!! All in Glenbrooke, a stereotypical small town!! Its amazing!!

That love is a choice and its more about commitment than feelings. Praying with someone from the opposite sex one on one is very intimate and should not be taken lightly.

3.5 stars - my favorite of the series so far. Meri is much more appealing than her sister. She reminds me of my daughter - spunky, vivacious, goofy, and emotional.

This is a good romance novel where both Merideth and Jake need to discover their love for each other. This is a sweet story with a strong Christian theme in it.

A delightful, Christian, romance story with humor and wit. Takes place in Oregon which gives it an extra plus!
