Dreams of Falling

Dreams of Falling - Karen   White 2.5 Stars

A romance novel set in the Lowcountry of South Carolina where life long friendships, love and family secrets are at the heart of this novel.

Romance novels are not my cup of tea and while this was an ok read unfortunately Its not one for my my real life bookshelf.

I was drawn in by the premise of the Novel as family secrets and big houses tend to get my reading juices flowing but Dreams of Falling was a long winded romance novel that became predictable and a wee bit cheesy for my liking.

The story is set in two timeframes one in the 1950s and the other in present day and while the 1950s story is readable and interesting, the present day one was monotonous and drawn out.

While this book wasn’t a good fit for me I do think readers of romance novels may enjoy this one better.
