Falling by Jane Green
This book is about Emma who has given up her fast paced life in New York City. She moves to a quiet beach town where she meets Dominic, her new landlord, along with his young son, Jesse. Well, you know right away what's going to happen here. BUT, there is an unexpected thing that does happen in the book and I won't give it away here. However, I have to say this, is by far the weakest female character I have ever seen. About halfway in the book, a SLIGHT misunderstanding takes place between Emma and Dominic, plunging Emma into a depression to the point of where she keeps thinking "it's over." I didn't understand the author's intent here. Why did she make Emma so dramatic. I didn't find much of this believable. I know I will not be in the majority here with my review. As always though, I am grateful for the opportunity to read this book. My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher.
