LOST IN NEW FALLS                       CHERIE MARKS
Posted:  Dec. 9, 2013

Lost in New Falls by Cherie Marks  Twenty-eight-year-old, former fat-girl, Kate Delaney left New Falls, Tennessee, heartbroken but determined to be a successful screenwriter. She’s spent the last ten years in Los Angeles, but is back in town, fifty pounds lighter, California hotter, and she’s written The End on a screenplay, which a Hollywood mega-producer believes is movie magic in the making. Just one problem—a nerve-nuking thief absconds with her laptop, attached USB back-up, and the contents of her underwear drawer, and just in case that wasn’t enough, the heartbreaker from ten years ago just walked through the door wearing a sheriff’s badge and looking more hormone-carbonating than ever.

Quentin Taylor likes the new and improved Kate, but to be perfectly honest, the feelings he’s always had for her aren’t new. Unfortunately, when a teenaged Kate bloomed, her older brother Reese established a no-look, no-touch, no-anything else rule. Quentin figured it was the anything else that worried him most. She’d been attractive then. Now she was near irresistible, and he wanted to know one thing. Did Reese’s dictate still stand? Besides, he has more pressing problems—a meddling, matchmaking mother, a gossiping dispatcher/receptionist with an obsession for the color orange, and a small-town burglar who steals thimble collections, garden tools, and underwear, along with the usual electronics and jewelry. Yet, he agrees to help Kate find her missing script, and the time they spend together sparks an undeniable chemistry.

Yet, once Kate’s screenplay is back in her hands, will she return to L.A, leaving Quentin behind forever, or is their romance destined to be a blockbuster?


     Kate has had a crush on Quentin for as long as she could remember but he always thought of her as his best friends little sister.  Quentin did at first only think of Kate as his best friend’s pesky little sister.  Since their grandpa was raising them and he said to let her go with them they did what he said and he should make the best of it.  Quentin respected their grandpa a lot because of what happened to his life so they learned to accept Kate.

     Then one day he and just about every other guy they hung around with realized that Kate was a beautiful girl.  When she threw herself at him before she leaves for college he doesn’t return her affections, not knowing her brother swore all his friends but especially Quentin off his little sister.  He agreed because her brother stuck by him when he needed a friend back then.  Kate was devastated by his rejection thinking it was because she was overweight and he didn’t find her appealing enough.  Especially, later when she finds out he married another woman. 

     They meet up again, not something Kate wanted, in fact all these ten years had avoided really well.  She had successfully slipped in and out of town with only her best friend and grandpa knowing she was there.  She was home this time for two reasons one her grandfather was dying and two she had the finishing touches on her book, but there was a home invasion.  Her script has been stolen that was on her computer along with the thumb drive.  Since they have been having a ration of robberies Sheriff Quentin Taylor shows up to check it out not knowing Kate is even there.

     He shows up late to the cabin so when checking in with all the deputies about the scene he recognizes her and can’t believe it’s her.  She wants to die when she sees him.  Her worse nightmare just walked in the door.  Although, she always loved him she always felt embarrassed because he rejected her.  Yet, by the look in his face does he see it that way?

     Kate and Quentin are the hope in every couple of “that one that got away.”  You never told those things you needed to say to.  Watch as the town’s people in the efforts to see them together, aid and abet a burglar by not talking to each other, or the sheriff to know where or what is going on beside gossip.

     What a fun read.  Can you go home again?  Is it ever enough for us women in our heads when we change our weight, hair or clothes?  Or do our guys even notice or is it just us the person they love?  Makes you Think.  HMMM???

Like the guys at my husband’s old job use to say, “Be careful she is speaking “womaneeze” again.”  Basically we woman have our own thought process and speak.  Quentin just Loved Kate no matter what.  Provided by netgalley.com
