REVIEW:  Can three weeks in the country change your perspective on life? Tayler Carter is a stressed overachiever and needs a vacation in the worst way. Her friend and coworker, Nicole, suggests she spend an extended vacation relaxing at her family’s Bread and Breakfast (B&B) in rural Danville, Kentucky. When she meets the B&B’s owner, Rollin Coleman, she quickly senses this will be a vacation experience that she will never forget.

Tayler is Vice President of Strategic Alliance at a telecommunications company in Chicago and is an internationally known motivational speaker. She plans to relax at the Coleman B&B and enjoy some much needed downtime. Her friend forgot to mention that this B&B is part of an organic working farm. The produce picked each morning is used to prepare lunch and dinner. That first morning wake-up call was an eye-opener for this city girl!

Morehouse grad Rollin Coleman inherited Coleman Organic Farm and the B&B after the tragic death of his parents. Rather than pursue his own dreams, he dutifully works at transforming the farm into a profitable business. The work is hard and running the B&B and the farm is overwhelming at times for his small staff. She doesn’t know it, but Tayler may be the last guest at the B&B as Rollin is considering closing it.

Tayler and Rollin fight hard to ignore the attraction that is evident from their first meeting. They are dedicated to their careers and leave little time for relationships. Family is important to Rollin. His uncle and aunt help with the B&B. His sister and her children live nearby and pitch in when needed. Tayler isn’t close to her family and relies on her job to fill the void. Her earliest observation of the people she meets is, “They all seemed to have the one thing she didn’t have - family.” The setting of
WHEN I FALL IN LOVE is sleepy rural Danville, Kentucky, which is an ideal location for a relaxing B&B vacation.  Bridget Anderson is a native of Kentucky and it is evident in the factual picture she paints of the region and its residents.

This is my first novel by this author and I enjoyed it. It is a sweet romance with just enough heat to warm those cool country nights.  I am eager to see what’s in the future for the Coleman House.  I think there is a lot more life and stories left in that old house.
