When I Fall in Love by Susan May Warren
When I Fall in Love is another story in the Deep Haven setting, this one is specifically about the Christiansen Family (book 3). I haven't read the first two in the subseries, but I am a long time visitor to Deep Haven. It was a great trip to not only up north, but it also included an excursion to Hawaii! Having visited Hawaii twice and being up north when I read this, the book was perfect. I enjoyed the adventures of Grace and Max as they easily fell in love with one another, but struggled to allow themselves to express that love and discover God's plan for it.
I also enjoyed getting to know Raina, the new girl in town. I'm looking forward to seeing how her story plays out in future books. The mixture of the girl who never wants to leave Deep Haven (Grace) and the girl who never wanted to come (Raina) was a nice foil. The fact that the two are friends and rely on one another in their darkest moments really pulls the two stories together.
In short, Susan May Warren does not disappoint. Her ability to weave characters lives together into an authentic feeling town is well done.
