Fall - Book Review

If I said you had a heavenly body would you hold it against me? Yes, these are actual lyrics. In the book ‘Fall’ Julia Halstead meets two brothers who are heavenly beings. Of course she doesn’t realize this right away. Not until dark forces combine to battle for her soul.

Julia, who goes by J.D. finds herself in the quiet little town of Torrey, Utah as the project manager to remake an old school house into a bed and breakfast. It’s a big project, and Julia can’t wait to show her grandfather that she can handle it. Construction is in her blood. This is something she has always wanted to do. But when vandalism and mysterious occurrences threaten the project, Julia turns to Matthew Rigo, her demolition contractor for help. At first he seems to be an answer to her prayers, but then the nightmare begins.

Jennifer has written a story with great characters. Julia is a tough, tool toting construction gal who still caters to her feminine side. She improves her yellow construction boots with hot pink and black leopard print. She has a soft spot for the grandfather who raised her after her mother abandoned her and struggles with how she feels about her place in a family.

Liu, an elderly Asian woman who runs the towns grocery store is a great supporting character. She offers care and advice when J.D. needs her.

I won’t tell you about the men in the story, suffice it to say there are rippling muscles and meaningful glances aplenty.

Fall is a paranoramal romance even your teenager could read. No cursing or intimate scenes in this book.
