When I Fall In Love Book Review


 About the Book

Hawaii was the last place Grace Christiansen ever imagined she’d vacation, much less fall in love. But when her family surprises her with a cooking retreat in paradise, she is pulled—or maybe yanked—away from her predictable, safe life and thrown headfirst into the adventure of a lifetime.

Max Sharpe may make his living on the ice as a pro hockey player, but he feels most at home in the kitchen. Which is why he lives for the three-week culinary vacation he takes each year in Hawaii. Upon being paired with Grace for a cooking competition, Max finds himself drawn to her passion, confidence, and perseverance. But just when Grace dares to dream of a future beyond her hometown, Max pulls away.

Wrestling with personal demons, Max fights against opening his heart to a love he knows he should never hope for. And as his secrets unfold, Grace is torn between the safe path in front of her and what her heart truly desires. If love means sacrificing her ideal happily ever after, Grace’s faith will face its toughest test yet. (Goodreads)

My Review

I have loved this series from the first page of the first book. I usually am not into contemporary books much as historical but this series is wonderful. While I do think these books can be read separately, please don't! The same characters are in each book and they are so good!
This third book is about Grace who works at the pizza place in Deep Haven. She has dreams but they don't seem to be working out. She ends up going to Hawaii with a hockey player which neither of them wanted. 
I love the food and cooking in the book, it adds to the storyline. Grace's character is so easy to relate with I love her story. Max Sharpe is an interesting man and I enjoyed getting to know him. The romance is sweet but there are things under the surface that take a while to be resolved between the two. This book includes the romances from the previous couples and a lot of cooking challenges!
There is a side story in the book about Casper and Owen that had me wrapped up in life at Deep Haven.  It didn't distract from the main story and I think it will lead into another book. I love the Christiansen family I just want to jump into the book.
I loved this book and I loved how Warren intertwines the love of God.

Five stars.
