Review: Feels Like Falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her extremist husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger, Diana Harrington, fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a worn-out Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn. But when her first love returns, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans--and for a new generation of readers.

My Review:

An uplifting story about friendship.

Gray and Diana couldn’t have been more opposite.  But together, they form a friendship that neither expected.  They help each other through some of their toughest days.

I really liked the characters in this book.  I felt like I really knew them through the author’s words.  The story had all the elements I crave in a book, strong characters, great setting and enough details to make me feel like I am right there with them.  The story was emotional at times and kept me flipping the pages until the end. 

I am almost ashamed to say this is the first book I have read by this author, but it definitely won’t be the last.

Thank you to Gallery Books and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
