Never Fall Again (Gossamer Falls, #1) by Lynn H. Blackburn

Never Fall Again (Gossamer Falls, #1)

Landry Hutton has spent three years rebuilding her life behind the secure gates of The Haven, an exclusive resort on the outskirts of Gossamer Falls, North Carolina. As the artist-in-residence, and with her pottery prized by The Haven's guests, Landry is finally ready to settle in permanently. She wants to give her daughter, Eliza, a safe home to grow up in and hires former Marine Callum Shaw to handle the construction.

Cal grew up in Gossamer Falls and always knew he would someday join his family's business. He longs for a family of his own but has almost given up on that ever happening. Landry is funny, gifted, and everything Cal could ever want in a partner, but he vows to keep his distance. Landry has a daughter and a past. Cal has been down that road before and barely survived when the woman he loved left, taking her two sons with her. He can't bear to lose like that again.

Before construction on the house can begin, Landry's pottery is destroyed in a suspicious fire. It soon becomes clear that Landry and Eliza are in grave danger--but because of whom? But, after losing one relationship, he is hesitant to try again.



It's just mid-March and I may have just read one of my 'top 10' books of the year! Never Fall Again has characters that I want to be friends with, family ties to treasure, and a romance to savor. I loved the almost-instant connection between Landry Hutton and Callum Shaw but watching it blossom, and then burst into a flaming attraction, was tantalizing, to say the least. Cal didn't know her past but his willingness to help Landry and his acceptance of her little girl Eliza was precious! Would his determination to never fall again prevent his wounded heart from trusting again?

Author Lynn H. Blackburn has created an extraordinary cast of characters for this story. Cal, Landry, Eliza, and a special pet named Maisy take center stage in Never Fall Again, but many other characters grabbed my attention, and I'm hoping that they'll be featured as the Gossamer Falls series progresses. I'm especially eager to learn more about the feud between the Pierce and Quinn families!

If you're looking for a fascinating romantic suspense story, grab a copy of Never Fall Again as soon as possible. I believe that you'll be as intrigued as I am!

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review.
