    This one definitely takes the cake for the most disappointing book I ve read this year After my love for Summer Secrets, I was dying to get my hands on this one Maybe it s my fault and completely unfair to Jane Green that I went in expecting a similar experience but what happened How did the same author write this shallow story There are so many things I could rant about the boring mundane details enough with the sisal rugs , the plot points that were conveniently thrown in to keep the story mov [...]

    What the hell just happened That s what I keep saying to myself as I got towards the end of this book The author brings us beautiful story of two people that were not expecting to find each other but yet were so perfect together They both just knew they were the one.The author gives us a beautifully written, compelling story that s just right for a Sunday afternoon and late evening read Wonderful scenes, beautiful descriptions, and people that you just want to love They both have other issues in [...]

    Falling is a standalone, women s fiction novel written by author Jane Green This book has been promoted as many things an epic love story , a personal story based on Ms Green s current relationship, and a study of relationships The third is the most accurate in my opinion Ms Green is fully capable of delivering an epic love story but this is not it, and it appears the only element that is based on her personal relationship is how she met her current husband In Ms Green s defense, she may not hav [...]

    Falling by Jane Green is a warm romance novel It is kind of a book that one can enjoy in cold winter near a fireplace, with warm coffee and blanket This book has soft, calm and comforting vibes in it.This story is about an English woman Emma Montague who is an ex banker She was in her twenties and left banking to live happy and comforting life in the town of Westport In Westport, she tried to figure out what she wanted to do in life She rented a cottage from a Dominic who is hunky, handsome hand [...]

    That one star should be a no star Thanks to NetGalley for laying this one in my lap for an honest review Wow I started writing my review when I was roughly 80% finished I should really stop doing this I d given it 3 stars, and my main critique was that it wreaked of insta love and late comer plotlines LOL IF I HAD ONLY KNOWN I also went on a bit of a rant about the heinous love is kindness tale that repeated throughout the book I m not kidding Emma reads the quote in a magazine somewhere, then l [...]

    BEST JANE GREEN BOOK YET It may be hard to believe that Jane has written a better book than her others but in Falling, she has I read it in 12 hours straight.It is a lyrical love story sweet, imperfect but perfect none the less It is so hard to review this book without spoilers but I refuse to spoil it for you.Falling MUST be a movie as Dominic is a gorgeous and amazing male protagonist I was in love with him by Chapter 3 The book really is about the different kinds of love and family whatever f [...]

    Every time Jane Green comes out with a new book, I think to myself, Maybe this time it ll be like when I read Jemima J Because I really loved that bookAlas, Falling one did not quite reach that pedestal I enjoyed this story Really, I did It kept me engaged, and I finished it in two days However, I wanted there to be MORE somehow chemistry between the main characters it seemed a little too insta love for me , drama problems that DID arise were resolved too quickly and neatly , SOMETHING I did, [...]

    Wow this one is full of emotion I did feel parts were rushed, but I still enjoyed it I even had to stop reading to make a sugar sandwich, as I never heard of this before and simply felt the need to try it Overall, my heart was definitely in this book

    It pains me to give one of my favorite authors a one star review I almost set this aside as a DNF, but ended up skim reading the last 1 3 to see if it ever got better It didn t This book was a huge disappointment.There was no chemistry at all between the main characters the relationship was completely unbelievable and was some sort of instant love thing that did not ring true at all Dominic was said to be a devoted dad, but he was incredibly careless with his son leaving him with people at the d [...]

    Gosh, I am surprised by some of the so so reviews for this book I really liked it I liked Emma and her decision to leave the rat race and find a simple happiness in the suburbs I really connected to the scene when Dominic tells her he loves her and suddenly the ex appears Emma goes on a downward spiral where she questions herself, her relationship and the fact that she opened herself up to love This is a story I have read before but I still enjoyed Jane Green s telling I really liked her simple [...]

    I have just finished Jane Green s latest book Falling, and I m baffled and confused Why Well, I can t actually tell you that because SPOILER ALERT But suffice to say, a book that I was actually really, really enjoying, actually kind of lost me And for those who say, Surely the ending of a book can t ruin a book for you, have clearly never read a book before Anything can ruin a book, and in this case, the ending made me want to hurl it against a wall with as much force as I could muster I very mu [...]

    This is the book version of City of Angels, which upset me so much that I used to loudly talk about it in Blockbuster I m going to do the same here Most of the book is about Emma and Dominic, an unlikely couple who fall in love There s lots of annoying repetition as we re hit over the head with how much they love each other and how special their love is Then tragedy hits and it feels like a Nicholas Sparks movie after Nights in Rodanthe I vowed to never watch one again The ending is abrupt If I [...]

    Why I disliked this book It is proving very difficult indeed to find a feelgood love story that is also decently written Jane Green s writing here is flat and poor throughout An unreasonable amount of interior design lingo made me sigh a lot Above all, I was angry at the apparent lack of effort to build a proper structure for the plot, which could have been entertaining enough otherwise But the expected tear jerking twist at the very end leads to an off handed ending that takes up only a few pag [...]

    Stop what you are reading and pick this up.Jane Green had me from the first page She can tell a story without the reader realizing that they re not IN the story with the characters Falling took me on a roller coaster I kept expecting something to happen, and when I was ready to turn left, she took me on a complete U turn It s a story of love, loss and acceptance but it could happen to any one of us I ve read almost all of Ms Green s books, and this one is just different It s a grown up story wit [...]

    Jane Green returns following Summer Secrets 2015 with her latest, FALLINGa story of two people from different walks of life, and an unexpected bond with a child A wide range of reviewsfor this one Straightaway, getting right to my feelings about this book, versus an overview I had not planned on writing a review not a fan of giving bad reviews however, many of my friends have asked for my brutal honest opinion Here it goes Falling fell for me.I have read tenJane Green books This was one of the m [...]

    The best things in life always finds us when we re not looking for them I think Jane Green just broke me I haven t felt this way after reading a book in a long time This story is full of heartbreak and I couldn t stop sobbing The end for me was bittersweet I do believe Jane Green is a spectacular storyteller Her characters always feel real to me, someone you could know or would be glad to meet Emma and Dominic were not any different.Falling features Emma Montague A British woman who has decided [...]

    I tried I really tried But this book is awful I made it thru the looong boring monologue but when I came to almost the end and it looked like the most boring couple in fiction was about to come to a bad end I finally gave up and just said, nope The continuity was terrible The whereabouts of the kid changed from paragraph to paragraph A six year old runs around with no supervision and a caring father goes looking for him hours later The only thing that kept me going with it as long as I did was b [...]

    Jane Green is one of my favorite authors has been for many years So it pains me to say that I did not like Falling, especially because I pre ordered a hardback and that wasn t cheap I don t want to put too much effort into this, because I honestly put too much effort into finishing the book I ve made a list of why I didn t like Falling It was fairly boring Look, I wasn t expecting a car chase through the streets of Manhattan or a plot to pull off a coup, but this had to be one of the quietest, b [...]

    I loved the books Jane Green wrote in the early 2000s, and this one really harked back to them Half the fun is that she describes outfits and home decor in such detail that you can imagine everything so vividly She uses her words to paint a glossy, beautiful, magazine world In this way, she sometimes reminds me of a modern day Rosamunde Pilcher I couldn t put this one down

    2.5 STARSOnce upon a time, long long ago in 2001 , I came across a book called Jemima J At the time a new genre was all the rage a little thing called Chick Lit And I was gobbling it up Specifically Brit Chick Lit And when I saw Jemima J and read the synopsis I knew I would love it And love it I did It remains very dear and meaningful to me And in the years that followed I read everything Jane Green wrote But then a darkness fell over the land and things began to change Looking back over my Good [...]

    Jane Green has done it again Amazing Breathtakingly beautiful and earth shattering sad all rolled into one truly amazing read You will need your Kleenex ready and waiting.Emma Montague was brought up within the ffy uppercase of England She decided then that to life than what she was experiencing and takes off to America NYC is where it s at and she loves the hustle and bustle of being in the of the world of banking.Then one day she changes her mind and decides to leave the craziness that is NYC, [...]

    A quick listen, what I thought was a romance but kind of morphs into of a television for women kind of story Which is great if that s what you re looking for I wanted something mindless to have in my ears while I worked on a tedious web project so it worked well for that The characters at one point eat sugar sandwiches, and that s a pretty good metaphor.Thanks to the publisher for providing early access to the audio.

    Every time I read a Jane Green book I hope it is going to be in the style of her earlier work Jemima J, Mr Maybe Those books were fun and had twists and turns that kept you engaged At some point Ms Green has moved into this sad and sappy style that is just so formulaic Falling was another disappointment I did like the decorating theme, I think I would have preferred to read a book about that The characters were flat Green keeps telling us that there was this incredible chemistry between the main [...]

    Summer is that delicious time when I dip into the pile of contemporary novels I neglect for historical fiction the other seasons of the year I have been a long time fan of Jane Green, and I couldn t wait to read FALLING A LOVE STORY This is her 18th novel, and it might be her best.What I had hoped would be a romance was, and much FALLING is a story of faith a woman takes a risk to create the life she always thought she wanted, and finds much in the process It is a family drama that is relatabl [...]

    I have read several of Jane Green s books though it s been a while and pretty much knew what I was getting into when I requested this book And yes, I got it A great story with great characters And yes, you will need tissues.There were several times when I tried to tell the characters not to do certain things, but they just didn t listen They just went ahead and did what they wanted to do Ugh However, I found the book entertaining, enjoyable, fun and recommendable.Thanks Berkley and Net Galley fo [...]

    I received an advanced copy as part of a Giveaway I really love Jane Green, but this was not my favorite The story of the unlikely couple who fall in love just didn t work for me It was not believable and I just didn t really feel the chemistry The tragic event that occurs happens like 95% into the book and the resolution is in like one chapter almost as a post script I would have rather read about the resolution to the tragic event than the chapters related to all of the characters proclaiming [...]

    4 1 2 stars I thought I had a favorite Jane Green book before, but this is now it I loved it I felt so many emotions as I finished it last night that I don t even know how to express them in words The story flowed easily and seamlessly that I didn t want to put it down The love I felt for all the characters was strong enough to get quite emotionally involved I cannot wait for July so the rest of the world can read it and I can discuss it with everyone Thank you to and Penguin Random House for th [...]

    Well goodness, this turned out to be just an okay story for me I was drawn in when Emma rents a dated house and wants to redecorate it I love stories about redoing an old house That was just a thin thread in the story The rest was just tedious, predictable and I wanted the story to move along The ending was a surprise yet there were so many questions left unanswered that the final page should not have been the final page The book was a disappointment.

    FALLING is pure, old school Jane Green I haven t heard this voice from her in ages, and I gobbled it up as fast as I could Even though it didn t have the ending I would have wished for, it was 5 stars all the way.
