Welcome to `Candle's stop on Becky Wade's Falling for You Book Tour. I am honored to be included as I have read and can verify that Becky has some of the best romantic series out there. This stop includes the tour stops, book, author, and giveaway info. After reading my review,  please scroll on down for the pertinent information, visit the other tour sites, as well as Becky Wade's website, and last but not least participate in the Give Away!

Falling for You, is the second in a series about the Bradford sisters. It could stand alone but really makes more sense if you have the background from the previous book in the series.

Having said that, I must say that when I finished this book, it jumped to one of my all-time favorites beside two other books I think are great not only for the romance but for their spiritual insight (those being: The Inheritance by Tamera Alexander and The Gladiator by Carla Capshaw).

Before you think this is going to be a sappy review, Let me start by saying I was aggravated by Willow's unwillingness to listen to, much less forgive Corbin. She was supposed to be a Christian but she acted more selfish than selfless.

Christians aren't perfect, and when they put someone or something on a pedestal above God then, not only are they breaking a commandment but they fall susceptible to temptations.

Corbin was right to be persistent and persevering in confronting his and Willow's past. He had messed up royally but not unforgivably.

Corbin was sexy, funny, and sweet. Willow was the opposite, classy, gentle, and loyal. The agenda to solve a 40 year old mystery by one little girl brings them together again; but many obstacles remain in their path including Corbin's Dad's illness. Corbin's Dad, Joe dislikes Willow for what she did to Corbin earlier and he extracts promises from her that just might keep the couple apart for good.

I was angry at how these promises were creating such angst for the characters as Corbin had to deal with his Dad's dying alone. Ultimately, I realized what the author, and most importantly, God needed to do with the characters. 

Corbin needed to see that God not Willow was all he needed. We people can't fix everything. We have a need within that can only be filled by One. 

Becky created a superb novel, well worth the 5 star read and a spot on your keeper shelf.
I received this book from Bethany House for my honest review.

Falling for You
(A Bradford Sisters Romance #2)
By Becky Wade
Inspirational Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 368 pages
May 1st 2018 by Bethany House Publishers

Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is taking a temporary break from her hectic schedule to work as the innkeeper at her family's small-town bed-and-breakfast. She was enjoying the peace of her hometown, Merryweather, Washington, right up until she came face-to-face with Corbin Stewart, the man she loves to hate. A thoughtful rule-follower by nature, Willow threw caution to the wind four years ago when she entrusted her heart to Corbin--and suffered the consequences when it all fell apart.

Former NFL quarterback Corbin is forceful, charming, and accustomed to getting what he wants . . . except where Willow Bradford is concerned. Unable to forget her, he's never stopped regretting what happened between them. When their paths unexpectedly cross again, he's determined to make her give him a second chance.

When a decades-old missing persons case finds Corbin and Willow working together, they're forced to confront their past and who they've become--and whether they can risk falling for one another all over again.
