Glory Falls by Janine Rosche: Review & Giveaway with JustRead Publicity Tours

Glory Falls JustRead Blog + Review Tour 

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Glory Falls by Janine Rosche, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Glory Falls

Title: Glory Falls
Series: Madison River Romance #3 
Author: Janine Rosche
Publisher: Berkley Books
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 12, 2021

Two people scarred by past trauma have a chance to write a new chapter in their lives, overcome loss, and find love in the third entry in the Madison River Romance series. 

Screenwriter Cecilia "Blue" Walker is victim to life's worst plot twists. Having lost her daughter to the depths of the Madison River and her husband to the arms of another woman, she finds herself yearning for something to restore her brittle faith and once-vibrant career. 

Hope arrives in the form of her childhood friend, Thomas Beck, a firefighter with a legacy of larger-than-life rescues who doesn't see himself as a hero. Haunted by his past, Thomas only agrees to a movie adaptation of his story if Blue, his longtime crush, is the screenwriter. 

However, as Blue and Thomas work together to bring his heroism to the big screen, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood threaten to shed light on secrets that could tear their fragile relationship and their lives apart.

"In every story you've told me about your childhood Blue Walker was the main character and catalyst all rolled into one. If there was any chance that you could help her reclaim her life, her happiness, would you do it"?

Thomas Beck is asked this by a co-worker that he has been dating and once again, he is reminded of just what Cecilia "Blue" Walker has meant to him his entire life. Glory Falls is a story of childhood friendship, sweet romance, immense sorrow, and the joy in second chances. I loved Thomas's deep faith and his Christian witness and the fact that even though he'd been hailed as a hometown hero, he only wanted to be a hero to the person who had made him kiss a frog and secretly carried cookies and milk to him and his sister when they didn't have them in their own home. Blue appeared to be competent and fearless but she was haunted by the dreams of her baby girl who had drowned in the Madison River two years earlier. Is the chance to write a screenplay of Thomas's heroic actions the beginning of Blue's healing? How will her return to Glory Falls affect Thomas and the guilt and regrets from his own past?

Janine Rosche has written a lovely story that tugs at your heart but never breaks it! It is, instead, a heartwarming account of hope, forgiveness, and the chance to begin again. Glory Falls makes you believe in God, love, and second chances and I recommend it to all who enjoy contemporary Christian romance.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book that I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars 


Janine Rosche 

Prone to wander, Janine Rosche finds as much comfort on the open road as she does at home. This longing to chase adventure, behold splendor, and experience redemption is woven into her Madison River Romance series. When she isn’t writing or traveling, she teaches family life education courses to college students, takes too many pictures of her sleeping dogs, and embarrasses her four children and husband with boy band serenades.
