Falling For Sarah by Cate Beauman

Author Cate Beauman begins with her protagonist on a joyous high only to have her world shattered in an instant. From there the author takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions before delivering a suitable ending.

Sarah Johnson is a young widow with an infant daughter struggling tocover pick up the pieces of her life after the death of her husband. Her only contentment is found in raising her beautiful daughter Kylee and her work as a photographer to Hollywood’s A-list. 

Ethan Cooke has been a friend to her and her husband for a long time. When he surprises her with a searing kiss under the moonlight, everything changed.

Even though her husband has been dead for two years, Sarah finds herself struggling with the guilt of betraying his memory after her unexpected attraction to Ethan. However when she begins receiving disturbing notes and blue roses, Sarah has to lean on Ethan. It’s up to him to keep her safe as they battle their own feelings of guilt and attraction.

Beauman weaves a beautiful tale of friendship that grows into a steamy romance and loving relationship. Her characters are likable, well-developed, and realistic. Readers can relate to their pain and suffering, as well as their hopes and dreams.

The story moves at a fast pace holding readers captivate from the first page to the last. Beauman blends humor, loyalty, suspense, romance and friendship for a well-balanced tale. In addition, Beauman develops the new relationship between Sarah and Ethan at a steady speed, not rushing the situation yet not dragging it out. She explores their inner feelings and conflicts of guilt and attraction in a plausible manner.  

FALLING FOR SARAH is an easy read that will be hard to put down. The characters are fun and the plot tantalizing.
