Susan May Warren
***My review is my own personal opinion***
Hawaii was the last place Grace Christiansen ever imagined she’d vacation, much less fall in love. But when her family surprises her with a cooking retreat in paradise, she is pulled—or maybe yanked—away from her predictable, safe life and thrown headfirst into the adventure of a lifetime.
Max Sharpe may make his living on the ice as a pro hockey player, but he feels most at home in the kitchen. Which is why he lives for the three-week culinary vacation he takes each year in Hawaii. Upon being paired with Grace for a cooking competition, Max finds himself drawn to her passion, confidence, and perseverance. But just when Grace dares to dream of a future beyond her hometown, Max pulls away.
Wrestling with personal demons, Max fights against opening his heart to a love he knows he should never hope for. And as his secrets unfold, Grace is torn between the safe path in front of her and what her heart truly desires. If love means sacrificing her ideal happily ever after, Grace’s faith will face its toughest test yet.

I love this series and I love this family!
I was so excited to get the chance to get to know Grace a little more and finally she gets her story told in When I Fall In Love. I enjoyed delving into Grace’s love of cooking and food. Caution: this book may cause cravings!
I could totally relate to Grace’s fear of getting out of her comfort zone and getting out of Deep Haven…I loved seeing her growth as a character throughout the story. At one point in the story, Grace is devastated by something that happens and she begins to question God and in the end she must make a choice that could change everything!
I also enjoyed the other characters in the story…Raina, Casper, Owen and Amelia- I cannot wait to hear their stories!!! I don’t want this series to end, I love it!!! I think fans of Karen Kingsbury and Debbie Macomber will definitely enjoy Susan May Warren!!!
*****5/5 STARS- LOVE LOVE LOVE IT; GET YOUR OWN COPY!!!*****
