From the series that “fans of Susan Wiggs will find...to their liking” comes this irresistible story of a free spirit who falls for the last man she’d ever expect (Library Journal).
Just when recently evicted yoga instructor Faith Rotolo thinks her luck has run out, she inherits a historic mansion in quaint Sapphire Springs. Though Faith never imagined putting roots down anywhere, small-town life is growing on her, as is her fixer-upper house. If only her handsome new contractor, Rob Milan, would stop spoiling her daydreams with the realities of a major rehab…and his generally grouchy vibes.
A single dad of two, Rob doesn’t have much time for fantasy wish-list ideas his clients can’t afford. Then again, Faith’s creative energy might be exactly what he needs right now. But while Rob and Faith work to give her home the second chance it deserves, their spirited clashes wind up sparking a powerful attraction. As work nears completion, and Faith’s house becomes the shining jewel of the neighborhood, will she and Rob realize that they deserve a fresh start too?
Falling for You by Barb Curtis is the third and last book in her popular Sapphire Springs series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone book. This small-town romance with opposites attracts trope also has a little bit of mystery to make this a very satisfying read.
Faith Rotolo is a yoga instructor who travels the world providing first-class yoga instruction to travelers. After returning from working at a remote location in Fiji, she finds out she has inherited a sprawling Victorian home in Sapphire Springs from an uncle she barely knew. Faith has no plans to ever settle down, but Sapphire Springs has a way of drawing her in.
Single father of two adorable girls, Rob Milan, is focused on providing a stable home for his girls in order to gain dual custody of them. Over a year ago, he caught his wife cheating on him with his boss. After punching his boss and undergoing anger management, Rob knows he has to keep his nose clean and stay out of trouble in order to gain custody of his girls.
The author has a knack for writing comforting small town romances, and I really enjoyed my trip back to Sapphire Springs. I liked that this book has a bit of a mystery along with the romance and family drama. Faith and Rob are opposites as Faith is more of a free spirit, and Rob is rooted in numbers and logic, but their romance feels realistic and they balance each other out beautifully.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance and women’s fiction. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
This sounds fantastic and just like my kind of book. I love small town romances and I love the inherited house trope.

I really enjoyed the second book of this series and meant to get to this one, but I didn’t request it on Netgalley with my time so limited right now. I’ll have to catch up with a library copy at some point. I like that there’s a bit of mystery featured.
I hope you enjoy it when you get to it, Rachel.
Sounds like a fun story. I like the idea of a single father of finding new love.
Thank you, Jenni! It’s so cute.
I love the yellow Victorian! I do read cozy romances once in awhile (I read almost anything, lol) and I’ll put this author on my Wish TBR.

I’m not familiar with this series, but I have such a soft spot in my heart for single parent romances.
Yes, I usually enjoy single-parent stories too.
This book has two things I love: the main character inheriting an old Victorian house, and the single dad! I will definitely be checking this one out. 🙂
It’s so cute, Lark. I think you’d enjoy it.
