I absolutely adored this book! I know that sounds like extreme praise, but this novel deserves it. It was one that kept me torn between not wanting to put it down and not wanting it to end. FEELS LIKE FALLING by Kristy Woodson Harvey pulls you in from the very beginning and weaves a story that will not let you go, even after you have finished the last word.
From the outside, Gray Howard seems to have it all, but looks can be deceiving. Her marriage has fallen apart, her soon-to-be-ex is trying to take half her company, her sister’s new marriage has turned her into someone Gray doesn’t know, and her mother passed away. She’s just barely holding things together when she meets Diana Harrington and inadvertently contributes to her getting fired. Losing her job was just the latest disappointment in Diana’s life: she broke up with her boyfriend after he left her broke, which also left her homeless. Her job wasn’t great, but it was something and it kept her on track toward her dream. When another encounter with Gray leads to first a job, and later, a place to stay, this odd couple is on track to what appears to be the unlikeliest of friendships but provides each with the strength, support, and love to navigate the next stages in their lives, let go of what they thought their life should be and embrace what makes them happy and find their future may not be what they expected or planned, but is what they needed.
Harvey has created two main characters who are complex and compelling. Despite their differing circumstances, their lives parallel in what they are experiencing. They both give each other the “tough love” when needed, and support the other no matter what, becoming not just friends, but family. Both characters are strong and weak in their own ways, and their friendship brings out the best in each. These are two women that I would love to be included their friend/family circle. The supporting characters are also well-developed and provide more depth to the main characters and the story. The setting is beautifully described and I could see myself in Carolina Beach and more specifically, at Gray’s home with all of them.
FEELS LIKE FALLING is a novel that will have you laughing and crying as you root on these two strong women and their lives. This is a novel you shouldn’t miss! It’s the perfect beach read or anytime read. Sit down and dive in!
