Can't Help Falling by Kara Isaac Review + Giveaway

A funny, heartfelt romance about how an antique shop, a wardrobe, and a mysterious tea cup bring two C.S. Lewis fans together in a snowy and picturesque Oxford, England.

Emelia Mason has spent her career finding the dirt on the rich and famous. But deep down past this fearless tabloid-reporter fa├žade, there’s a nerdy Narnia-obsessed girl who still can’t resist climbing into wardrobes to check for the magical land on the other side. When a story she writes produces tragic results, she flees to Oxford, England—home to C.S. Lewis—to try and make amends for the damage she has caused.

Peter Carlisle was on his way to become one of Great Britain’s best rowers—until he injured his shoulder and lost his chance at glory. He’s determined to fight his way back to the top even if it means risking permanent disability to do so. It’s the only way he can find his way past failing the one person who never stopped believing in his Olympic dream.

When Peter and Emelia cross paths on her first night in Oxford, the attraction is instant and they find common ground in their shared love of Narnia. But can the lessons from a fantasyland be enough to hold them together when secrets of the real world threaten to tear them apart? Cobblestone streets, an aristocratic estate, and an antique shop with curious a wardrobe bring the world of Narnia to life in Kara Isaac’s inspiring and romantic story about second chances.

My Thoughts:

Author, Kara Isaac does it again by writing a second novel that is top notch unique, magical and lovely. If you have read Close To You, you know that Kara writes books that are unique that wrap the reader into the book right away, well "Can't Help Falling" is no different! 

Enter the world of a wardrobe, and antique shop, while you're holding a yummy cup of tea. You might even find yourself in England with a gal named Emelia and handsome man named Peter. While hiding the wardrobe, you might meet Peter and fall in love, or you might realize that Emelia's secrets will stop that dead in its tracks.  Either way, you will feel like you have entered the scenes of Narnia with a story filled with romance, friendship, and hardship of life, but don't worry you'll turn the pages so fast you'll get to see how it all ends.  

If you like a book that has detailed characters, rich family history, faith, romance and some intermingling of characters from a previous book, Can't help Falling has it all. And if this isn't enough to get you interested in this book, then I will give you one more thing that I loved about this book. Not all the characters are followers of Christ, which throws the plot and twists a bit more, which makes this book even better.
This is a fantastic book, and I can't wait for you to read it! Make sure you pick up a copy of this amazing, page turner, romance and faith-filled book. I give this book 5/5 stars! 

And Finally, since I loved this book so much, I am giving an ARC copy away thanks to Howard Publishers! Leave your name and email address. I will be drawing a winner through by October 16, 2016. 

Good luck!
