Never Fall Again

Publisher: Revell
Series: Gossamer Falls
ISBN: 978-0800745363

I haven't met a Lynn H. Blackburn story I didn't love so when I saw it was available for review through Revell, I jumped at the chance! Thankfully, they sent me her book for review.


Landry Hutton has spent three years rebuilding her life behind the secure gates of The Haven, an exclusive resort on the outskirts of Gossamer Falls, North Carolina. After serving as the artist-in-residence, Landry is finally ready to settle in permanently to give her daughter, Eliza, a safe home in which to grow up. 

Former Marine Callum Shaw always knew he would someday join his family's construction business in Gossamer Falls. He longs for a family of his own but has almost given up on that ever happening. The beautiful artist who has hired him to build her new house is funny, gifted, and everything Cal could ever want in a partner, but he vows to keep his distance. He's loved--and lost--someone like her before.

When Landry's pottery is destroyed in a suspicious fire, it becomes clear that Landry and Eliza are in grave danger--but from whom? Cal will have to risk his heart again if he has any hope of protecting them.

My Review:

There are SO many things I want to talk about in Never Fall Again, it's hard to even know where to start. I feel like this story has all of the hard topics rolled up in suspense wrapped in a bit of romance! You like meddling family members? Nodding, there are 3 different families (think Hatfield & McCoy plus one) and the Quinn family is large and meddling. They're my kind of family!

First, there's newcomer to Gossamer Falls, Landry and her daughter Eliza. Because of trust issues, it takes a while to learn why they're in this little town. With the decision to settle in, she's drawn into the Quinn family craziness and security.

Enter, Cal Shaw, who is a Quinn due to his mom. Thank goodness there's a family tree at the beginning of the book! Cal - he's the quintessential good guy who has been hurt in the past. He's the youngest, but well loved of the 3 Shaw brothers. Let me tell you, this family knows how to circle the wagons. As Cal's company begins to look at constructing Landry's new home, awful things begin to happen and they have to find out who the target is and why!

One of my FAVORITE parts to this story is the lack of miscommunication. I have seriously been LOVING stories that have characters just being honest with each other when confronted with a question or a request. I truly hope this is a new trend! The build up of the romance was sweet and gave me all of the heart eyes!

Of course, there's a strong faith element in the story and I love that the characters actually pray in the story. Landry is straight-forward that her experiences in the past have made her leery of churches and their members. When you learn about her background it's easy to understand why.

I hope this is at least a 4 book series because I need Mo, Meredith, and Cassie's stories thanks to this book. I can't wait for the next one to release!
