Falling for You by Becky Wade is the second book in her “Bradford Sisters Romance” series, following True to You. Falling for You works just fine as a stand-alone, however if you want some bonus background information on the characters, be aware that the heroine is the sister of the heroine in True to You and the hero is best friends with the hero from Becky Wade’s “Porter Family” series book 4, Her One and Only.
This book picks up following the story of the eldest Bradford sister, Willow. She had dated Corbin previously and things ended badly, but due to his niece being a fan of Willow, the two of them end up as partners in the solving of a mystery that’s buried by years of family secrets.
I liked this book better than I liked the first one of this series, but it still doesn’t hold a candle (for me anyway) to the “Porter Family” series. The fact that Willow and Corbin had somewhat of a pre-existing relationship definitely added tension and made things interesting, and I enjoyed watching them grow and reconcile and learn to forgive and compromise. The mystery aspect of the novel was gripping yet seemed somehow out of place in this book. I can’t quite put my finger on how; it just seemed a little drastic or dark for what would have otherwise been a sweet romance novel of reconciliation. I would still recommend this novel and hope this series continues to improve. You can count on me giving anything by Becky Wade a shot :).
