Publication date: June 7th 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Struggling to put her life back together after a tragic mountaineering accident kills her college sweetheart, twenty-one-year-old Holly Treadwell is trying to set aside her grief, forge ahead in school, and find herself again.
When Carter Hansen, a guy who brings back horrible memories from the night of the accident, finds his way back into her life, Holly’s unsure if she should let him in. He terrifies her in more ways than one and invokes feelings in her that she thought were buried forever. Regardless of her fears, she knows she must face him in order for her heart to heal.
Everyone tells Carter that what happened on the mountain that night was just a terrible accident, but even then, he can’t help but carry around the guilt and is unable to forgive himself. He’s drawn to Holly and being near her helps ease his conscience and gives him the release he needs.
As Holly and Carter’s relationship grows, they begin to realize that the more time they spend with one another, the more their wounds begin to heal—her grief and his guilt. But when Holly learns the details about the night of the accident—what everyone has been keeping from her—it will rip open old wounds and tear apart what they’ve both worked so hard to overcome…
Fall From Love is a story that shows you can move on after tragedy.
Holly falls into a deep depression after losing her boyfriend in a mountain accident, but her BFF Jenna helps pull her out. Holly used to be fun and outgoing, but barely has the energy to get face each day. She hurts so fiercely, and doesn’t know how to keep going on. She grows so much throughout this book. She goes from a shell of a person to someone who learns how to enjoy life.
Carter is full of self-blame. Not just about the accident, but also over everything that has gone on with his family. For some reason he can’t let things go. He’s never grieved properly for anything, and keeps it bottled up. He’s incredibly sweet, and only wants to help Holly deal with life in general.
These two aren’t looking for love, but have a great friendship. They are completely comfortable around each other. They take care of the other when it’s needed, and dance around the fact they have stronger feelings for each other. This novel is about how they cope and figure out how to get past the hurt they feel over everything that’s gone wrong in their lives.
An awesome love story, and I couldn’t help all the warm fuzzies I felt after reading this. It just proves you can love again, even after a horrific tragedy!
