Love in Carson Falls by Paisleigh Aumack a fab four-star read.

Just WOW!!

This book grabbed me from the first sentence and kept me entertained until the end of the book - I truly wanted it to continue on instead of ending. Be prepared I cried in the very beginning and several more times throughout the book.

Arianna is one tough lady to have to go through what she did to get to what I call the rest of her life was a journey that I'm not sure I would have survived or to say the least I'd been in jail for murder. Once she gets to Carson Falls and just simply fal

Love in Carson Falls is the first book in The Falls Series by Paisleigh Aumack. I had not read anything by Ms. Aumack before and I wasn’t sure what to expect from her work. But when I saw the beautiful cover and read the blurb, I was intrigued and so I decided to give the book a chance to win me over. I am very pleasantly surprised by what I read as the story is really beautiful, quite emotional, and it completely captured my heart. I LOVED it, and now I can’t wait to explore more of Ms.

Just WOW!!!! I love when I get so involved in a book that I feel like I’m a part of the story, and this one did this from the very beginning to the very end.

Arianna has come to the small town of Carson Falls to be with her best friend to escape the horror and devastating loss she has just endured. Ari’s spirit and tenacity made me fall in love with her immediately. She’s a scared “bird” as River calls her in the beginning, but through her relationship with the locals and especially her BFF, Penn

This is a new-to-me author and I must say that I am loving what I've read so far. This book really touched my heart. I think this author did a really great job at capturing the emotions and feelings associated with being and coming out of an abusive relationship. The emotions felt genuine and relatable.

Arianna definitely didn't have it easy and although everything she has suffered and endured she has this strength to her and she is caring, loving and a genuinely nice person. I loved he

Second chance at life, rediscoving oneself and finding a true love when you thought it would never happen again. Reading a new author is invigorating. See something new from a new set of eyes.

The first few pages of Love In Carson Falls had me gutted. As a mother, your heart breaks with the how much loss and destruction Arianna encompassed. With determination she made the choice and broke the cycle. After getting up again, she escaped to her best friend's open arms. On the opposite side of the c

Love in Carson Falls by Paisleigh Aumack is a story about starting over and finding yourself while also finding a love that was unexpected but true. Arianna came to Carson Falls to start over after losing herself to an abusive husband, she leaves to start over and stays with her college roommate. Arianna has no intention of becoming engulfed in another dominating male, especially one like River. But it seems with River's alpha personality she doesn't stand a chance.

I have been waiting for this book and Paisleigh did not disappoint. From the beginning I was wrecked and had so many feelings . Paisleigh did a wonderful job writing this beautiful story and I fell in love with River and Arianna. But who capture my heart was Cady , and how her and Ari build a wonderful relationship.

River was a wonderful father but there were times I gotten mad at his reaction to Arianna. But overall River showed Ari that she was worth lov

What a great book. That was a very emotional read, I can't tell you how many times my heart hurt and eyes leaked. The whole town was endearing and made me want to live a small town life. The writing was on point and the story flowed at a lovely speed; the supporting characters are all easy to love or hate!

Ariana has been through hell, she escaped to Carson Falls to stay with her best friend, Penelope. She is picking her life up after recent events and this beautiful town is just the place to he

Arianna has just left her abusive boyfriend and arrived at Carson falls battered and broken, to stay with her best friend. She finds a job quickly and settles into her new life. River is a single dad with the most adorable little girl, he's avoided relationships but is captivated by Arianna. I found River to be tota ...more

A great debut novel from this author.
Ariana - running from an extremely abusive husband after a severe beating caused her to lose her unborn child, settles in Carson Falls taking refuge with the best friend, the sassy Penelope.
River - a firefighter and single dad, bringing up his daughter alone after his wife and mother of his child walked out shortly after the baby's arrival.
Neither were exactly looking for love but the well meaning meddling of a small town pushed tyhem together.

This was a sweet romance! I really liked both Arianna and River (and his River Shivers), but completely fell for River's daughter, Cady! There was a good amount of angst, just enough to make the characters three-dimensional, and the side characters certainly added to the plot. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Love in Carson Falls, and can't wait for Braxton and Penny's story next! ...more

What a refreshing read by a brand new author. Paisleigh's sweet story of love, loss, and love again is as heartwarming as one would imagine from the title. Her characters are well-developed and loveable and as they tell their stories, you feel as though you're sitting at a table with them as they narrate to you. Paisleigh's level of detail is amazing -- she doesn't miss a thing. I look forward to so much more from this talented lady. ...more

Everything is there from the great writing style and flow, enough of a description to show what’s going on without being too onerous, and the incredible interactions between the characters that was so easy to become invested in.

Love in Carson Falls by Paisleigh Aumack is book 1 in The Falls series and is a triumphant story about overcoming obstacles and opening yourself to love again. It’s told in both the main characters POV, which really adds to the story giving us a better insight into who they are. The small town is so beautifully described that I wanted to go there for a visit. The supporting characters really play an important role in this book and I found that

This was my first Paisleigh read and I'm looking forward to Penny and Jury’s stories in future Falls Series books. Hopefully they drop their drama and blinders and see the men they have in front of them for who they truly are. I can't wait to see how Paisleigh brings all these loose ends together.

If you love an alpha male, single dad that adores his little girl, new beginnings, stubborn woman fighting the charm of a sexy man and making him
