I have a really lovely romantic novel to share with you called When I Fall In Love written by Susan May Warren.
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.This is actually a love story about 2 different women and 2 different circumstances but both looking for love and not really handling it very well. Both end up losing the one that they really love because of unsaid words, but at least Grace manages to talk to Max to figure out what the heck is his problem and why he is acting so strange?
As for the other woman, Raina, she has mishandled her all problem and made it almost impossible to fix what was wrong with her and the man she loves. But, I guess time will tell and I can also say I don't know her ending because there will be another book coming that will decide her fate and the fate of the man she really loves.
Both stories will probably sound familiar to a lot of women and if they do, take heed of what each woman did and the mistakes that they made and don't make the same ones!
