Review: Fall in Love by Melissa Kendall

Michael Dunbar runs his family's cattle station in the far north of Western Australia.  Station life is lonely and he wishes there was a way he could find a companion that wouldn’t mind living the outback life with him.  In hopes of finding a woman, Michael heads to Broome for a few weeks holiday.  What he finds is something he never expected.

Mia Mason is a Perth girl who longs to leave the city behind for a life in the country.

Can two like minds fall in love? Only destiny knows.
This is one of the times when I don’t like being a reviewer/blogger.  I don’t like tearing down someone’s hard work.  I mean honestly, authors put A LOT of time and effort into writing books for us readers to read.  I didn’t love this book.  It was just so-so for me.  Not to say Melissa is a bad writer, because she has several other books which sound interesting.

Fall In Love wasn’t what I thought it would be.  First off, it’s only 29 pages long.  Definitely NOT long enough to actually establish the characters personally and see them progress from first meeting to falling in love to marriage.  At least for me I didn’t have enough time to get a vested interest in them being together or even liking them.

I believe in love at first sight, the whole idea of meeting someone and KNOWING you’re supposed to spend the rest of your life with that person.  I just don’t believe in we meet, I like you, you like me, BOOM we’re married in a month.  Honestly, I kept waiting for something to SERIOUSLY be wrong with Mia.  I kept waiting for her to turn into some sort of thief or scammer.

Fall In Love is a happy-ever-after story that’s a little hard for me to believe.
