REVIEW TOUR - Falling for Leigh (A Brookhollow Story) by Jennifer Snow

Virtual Book Tour Dates: 9/1/14 – 9/29/14
Genres: Sweet Romance, Contemporary Romance
Series: A Brookhollow Story


Can she be his cure for writer’s block? 

For New York novelist Logan Walters, falling for the girl next door was more than a cliché. It was a calamity! If Leigh Norris hadn’t been so attractive, and hadn’t been hammering relentlessly while he was trying to write, Logan would never have ascended her rickety ladder in a misguided mix of gallantry and frustration. And he wouldn’t have a broken wrist—or a guilty new assistant who can’t type. Clearly, his escape to the Brookhollow B and B was not going to be the quiet, idyllic retreat he needed to finish his overdue manuscript. But it was fast becoming much more interesting than expected….

“I…uh…hired a typist.”
His agent snorted over the phone. “You’re lying.”
“No, really I did.” He and Leigh hadn’t exactly talked about payment, except for his brief mention of it at the haunted hike, but he certainly planned on compensating her for her time and help. Of course, he’d rather show her his gratitude in other ways, like taking her out on a real date, telling her how wonderful she was and helping to erase some of the pain in her past.
“From what agency?” Clive still sounded suspicious.
“No agency. She’s just a woman who lives here in Brookhollow, next door to the B and B.” It was such an understatement, Logan was almost embarrassed by the lie. But what could he tell Clive? That he was getting help from a woman he was falling in love with in the small town? Clive would for sure give up on him, thinking he’d lost his mind.
“Not the same woman who pushed you off a ladder?”
“Actually, yes.”
Clive laughed. “Wow, way to call in the guilt favor.”

When I read the synopsis, i thought this was going to be a romantic comedy story, but instead this is a book about finding love when and where you least expect it, and what would you be willing to sacrifice in order to be with the person you've fallen in love with?

What I liked about this story is that the main characters aren't twentysomethings, they're both in their late 30s, and they've each got their own personal issues to deal that you'd find in everyday society, so that made the story a bit more interesting and realistic.

What didn't work for me was the fact that we didn't get the chance to really experience the developing feelings Leigh and Logan have for each other; they basically go from Leigh helping Logan after his injury to them sharing confidences with each other that no one else really knows about, but we don't get to see them falling in love. Another thing that bothered me was how quickly Logan wanting Leigh to just pick up and move out to L.A. if his legal issue didn't work in his favor; even though they'd only known each other for about 2.5 weeks. Who can make that type of decision after knowing someone less that month.

The story could have been predictable if everything worked out in both Leigh's and Logan's favor, but I liked the way the author decided to handle it, and I found it easy to feel the pain one of them suffered after learning the decision that had been made (but you'll have to read the book to find out who and what I'm referring to).
