Book Review: Love Gently Falling

Love Gently Falling. Melody Carlson. 2015. Center Street. 192 pages. [Source: Review copy]

Love Gently Falling is a quick, sweet read. I'd say it's completely predictable, but, predictable is not bad in my books for this genre. I like to know what to expect and am happy when a book meets those expectations.

Rita Jansen is a hairdresser living in Hollywood. She's perfectly content where she is, but, she's also ready to help out her family when they need her. The book opens with Rita receiving a phone call. Her mom has had a stroke and is in the hospital. Rita goes to be with her family. She's by her mom's side. She's supportive of her brother and father: whatever happens, they'll face it together as a family. One thing that Rita can do that her father and brother can't do is to help out with her mom's salon. What she sees convinces her that it's time for a redesign…

Love Gently Falling is contemporary romance. Rita meets someone, the hero, and it's the start of something. Rita has no idea what…if it will work out or not…but…she's oh-so-interested…but it turns out that she's not the only one interested in this guy…

The book is a quick read and quite satisfying overall. I liked the characters well enough.
