Falling For You by Jill Mansell



"As a teenager, Maddy Harvey was always a bit of an ugly duckling, but thankfully she's blossomed since then. But when she meets Kerr McKinnon one summer's night and discovers, days later, who he really is, that's when the real problems start. Because everyone in Ashcombe knows what happened 11 years ago, and as far as her mother Marcella is concerned, she would rather tear that family to pieces with her bare hands then see Maddy associate with a McKinnon. And, okay, maybe Marcella isn't her real mother, but Maddy owes her so much. It's Romeo and Juliet all over again. Quick, hide those sharp knives and that little bottle of poison!"



Unfortunately, I didn't like this book as much as I thought I would. It was supposed to be about a couple who fall in love despite their family's hatred for one another. Romeo and Juliet......not really! The author focused too much on everyone else in the town. I couldn't fall in love with Maddy and Kerr because I didn't get enough of them, and that was disappointing. Most of the time I felt like I was reading the plot of a soap opera.


I need a book that pulls me in and makes me want to keep reading, this book didn't do that. The middle was drawn out and the ending was predictable. Overall it was just an okay book, I wouldn't recommend it.
