ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
Wow! First of all, if you haven’t read the two books in the series before this one, you can still enjoy Glory Falls. However, I highly recommend that you read the entire series simply because it is so good!
I enjoyed the first two books in the Madison River Romance series, but Glory Falls is by far my absolute favorite of the three novels! The connection between Blue and Thomas was amazing, yet it didn’t mean that things just fell into place for them. There was a lot of trauma in both of their backstories, making their second chance at love even more special.
I loved seeing Thomas open up to Blue and begin to show those emotions that he always kept tucked away. And I loved seeing how Blue was just a normal girl away from all of the trappings of Hollywood.
This story is not for the faint of heart, however, and there are events in this book, especially in flashbacks and dreams that could trigger some people. These things are related to the drowning death of a child. The author handled everything so well and captured the emotions of these characters in an amazingly convincing way. This book tugged on my heart yet made me feel uplifted and hopeful when I turned the final page.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
