Meet Sam and Ellie and watch them fall in love by the Maine sea shore in this gripping emotional story.
Annie Lacy Galloway has been grieving for her husband, and has kept his reputation intact in the small town of Shelter Rock Cove. Orphaned at a young age, the Galloways are family. But circumstances force her to sell off the large house she shared with her husband and buy a small cottage on the outskirts of town. Sam is a hotshot New York financier who has been caught in some shady dealings and is forced to become scarce. He rents a house in the remote Maine town of Shelter Rock Cove.
Hall Talbot is the local doctor with a penchant for getting married. Perhaps because he has always had a crush on Annie. He is determined to make his case this time, but encounters an unexpected opponent. Warren Bancroft is the local kid who made it big and is like a benevolent Uncle. Still single and waiting for his old flame, he wants to play Cupid and set the youngsters up.
Both Sam and Annie are helpless in the wake of the attraction that springs up between them. But Sam’s past catches up soon enough. It is all too familiar for Annie who finds it difficult to trust again.
A Soft Place to Fall is a gentle romance that lulls you like the lapping waves of a low tide. There is family and friendship here and the comfort of a small town. You want to root for the young lovers, and pray for a happy ending. A great book when you need some cozy comfort.
