How We Fall is one of those books I fell in love with from the beginning. Throughout most of the book, the mystery takes a backseat to the romance, and I was totally okay with that.
Writing a story about first cousins falling in love can be tricky to say the least. Marcus and Jackie are the perfect example of two people, who should NOT fall in love, but Kate has a way with words and by the end of the third chapter, I didn’t care who they were, I wanted them to be together.
Besides the love story you have a mystery weaved in. Her friend Ellie who had moved away the previous year is missing. Jackie struggles not only with her guilt of not keeping in touch, but the uncertainty of what happened to her friend all while trying to keep her secret relationship with her cousin hidden from family and friends. The conflict was so high it seeped from the book and straight into my chest. My body tensed, as I read, desperate to know what would happen next.
Any book that causes so many emotions is a must-read in my opinion.
In conclusion, there is nothing not to love about this book. Small town crime, strange things happening around town, taboo love, jealousy, and beautifully executed prose. I was sad to see this book end. So yes, I recommend this book, and I will most definitely be telling everyone I know to pick up a copy. I was left thinking about these characters far after I finished reading, and I desperately wanted to know more about Marcus and Jackie and what happened after the last page ended. It has been awhile since I’ve read a book I loved this much.
I found the relationships and family drama far more compelling than the mystery, but the writing was great and I adored all the references to classic films.
