Blog Tour Stop and Review: Fall From Love by Heather London

Fall From Love by Heather London 
Publication date: June 7th 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

Struggling to put her life back together after a tragic mountaineering accident kills her college sweetheart, twenty-one-year-old Holly Treadwell is trying to set aside her grief, forge ahead in school, and find herself again.

When Carter Hansen, a guy who brings back horrible memories from the night of the accident, finds his way back into her life, Holly’s unsure  if she should let him in. He terrifies her in more ways than one and invokes feelings in her that she thought were buried forever. Regardless of her fears, she knows she must face him in order for her heart to heal.

Everyone tells Carter that what happened on the mountain that night was just a terrible accident, but even then, he can’t help but carry around the guilt and is unable to forgive himself. He’s drawn to Holly and being near her helps ease his conscience and gives him the release he needs.

As Holly and Carter’s relationship grows, they begin to realize that the more time they spend with one another, the more their wounds begin to heal—her grief and his guilt. But when Holly learns the details about the night of the accident—what everyone has been keeping from her—it will rip open old wounds and tear apart what they’ve both worked so hard to overcome…




Heather London is a young adult and new adult author who loves to write stories full of romance, fantasy, and science fiction. She is a lover of only the finest of coffee and premium craft beer, but will settle for anything chocolate, regardless of its quality. Heather lives with her husband in Dallas, TX where she is currently working hard on her next project.



My Review:

I love when a book has the ability to surprise you and Fall from Love achieved this. It was a very sweet love story featuring two very damaged characters that fall for each other. I really felt the author did a spectacular job of depicting the grief of a person who loses their first love.

Fall from Love gripped me from the beginning. Holly’s loss of her college boyfriend to an accident was heartbreaking. The next chapter starts months after his death and Holly is still deeply grieving. I felt a little choked up over her inner monologue as she imagined the future she’d never have.

Holly begins to spend time with Carter, one of the guys that worked on the mountain with her boyfriend. Holly and Carter’s relationship progresses slowly, but in a natural way. It was actually refreshing not to read about an insta-love relationship. Their attraction feels forbidden and it takes a while for Holly to warm up to Carter. Both of the main characters were likable, so I was definitely rooting for a happy ending. I also liked the secondary characters, especially Holly’s ultra-supportive and protective best friend Jenna.

The novel was beautifully written and London has a talent for invoking emotions in a reader. I felt Holly’s pain and guilt as she tries to move on after the accident that took her boyfriend’s life. But I could also feel her joy as she begins to open herself back up to new experiences.

I’d highly recommend this book to lovers of contemporary romance books and sweet love stories.
