Sweet novella about finding love after divorce. It was a little heavy on the accident prone aspect, but overall a cute read.

If you ever want to take a trip down south but not leave your living room, Janet Ferguson will take you there through the pages of her books. So if you’re feeling chilly this winter but still want the holiday spirit, this might be the book for you.

I enjoyed reading Grace and Seth's story so much. These were two hurting people. They had each suffered so much and neither one really felt that there was much hope for happiness in their future.

I couldn't help but feel compassion for Grace and Seth. I connected with them immediately and hope grew for both of them as they went through the Christmas season together. At times it seemed that things couldn't possibly work out for them and the deep emotional struggles and fears that they needed to ov

Despite (or perhaps because of) Grace's clumsiness, this second-chance romance was delightfully appealing and entertaining. Seth's role as the hurting hero is well-executed and endearing. I enjoyed our little visit to the beach with all its depth and humor and life lessons. I borrowed this book from Kindle Unlimited.

This was a sweet contemporary romance about two wounded people finding friendship, romance, and healing tucked away beside the beach in Santa Rosa. Grace has headed to her boss's beach house for a low-key Christmas—and the opportunity to recover from the grief of her ex-husband's recent marriage to her best friend. Seth has been hiding out for three years following his own divorce in the wake of a devastating loss.

There's a little bit of instalove involved here, but it's the gentle sort as Grace

I enjoyed this novella! I liked both main charcters and thought they were well written. I thought the two were thrown together a tad quickly, however their relationship developed at a pace that I was okay with. I had trouble putting the book down once I got to the second half. I really liked the addition of Mac and Darlene. I was inspired by Darlene and when I'm inspired by a character in a book, it's always a plus for me.

Readers should be aware that this book deals with divorce and the loss of

I loved Falling For Grace for its ability to take you on a journey of growth and healing. Grace has suffered heartache while Seth has been through a tragedy of his own. Follow along with two people who learn exactly what it's like when we let go of control and follow His lead.

Sweet, short story. Deals with infant loss in a gentle way. The note at the end by the author is touching.

I greatly enjoyed this novella and Grace and Seth's story, in fact... I wish it had been longer! There were moments of laughter, tears, and love that kept the story rolling with faith to sustain them all. A fantastic story about how God can heal all of our broken parts.

Great story!

I definitely recommend this book. Grace and Seth had some "bad" in their earlier lives, but it is amazing what God can do, if only we let Him.

A wonderful refreshing read. Simplicity and sweetness. The personal feelings and hardships, but reliance on God was so good to me.

“Everywhere Grace went, there was Seth. All afternoon. Even when she left him resting on the couch while she crossed to and fro to check on Brooklyn’s house, the man’s presence seemed to linger on her skin, her heart, her mind. Something between scorching flames and cool gentle waves on a summer day, which totally made no sense, but all she knew was that every moment away from him, she missed him.” 0 likes
