Sparks fly when a reclusive artist meets his muse in this new installment of the Buckeye Falls series.
Alice Snyder knows her reputation—and if she didn’t, Buckeye Falls loves to remind her. She may come from the town’s First Family, but that doesn’t mean she plays by the rules. After a decade of traveling and going to school, she’s back home and ready to settle down, or at least relax for a while. The trouble is, her neighbors are determined to find her a husband. She needs a way to get them off her back…
When James Gibson, a divorced artist, flees New York for the peace of small-town Ohio, he’s excited to get painting again. The only trouble is, he’s completely blocked. Despite his best efforts, his collection of canvases are blank and he’s at a career crossroads. A chance meeting with the mayor’s sister throws James’s routine off balance, and he’s eager to spend more time with this quirky spitfire.
And Alice might have the solution to both their problems…
She gets the Nosey Nellies off her back, and James gets time with a woman who inspires him both inside and outside the studio.
Just a few weeks of pretending, and they’ll move on. Simple, right? The trouble is the more time they spend together, the realer their relationship feels. The laughter, the stolen kisses—it all starts to feel like more.
Can these two be honest with each other and find their happily-ever-after, or are they doomed for a real breakup?
Libby Kay’s FAKING THE FALL redeems Buckeye Falls’s spinster troublemaker with a fake relationship romance filled with sweet small town vibes. FAKING THE FALL will bring to mind amazing books like Practice Makes Perfect by Sarah Adams and Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey. But best of all, it returns readers to the small Ohio town and the familiar characters from the previous Buckeye Falls books. All the zany, overbearing, and well-meaning ones! So sit back and grab FAKING THE FALL for the latest roller-coaster romance by Libby Kay.
Alice’s early thoughts on James
James agreed to her fake dating plan. Alice would be lying if she wasn’t already excited to see him again. Her skin still burned—yes, burned—from where he’d touched her. For all the men she claimed to love before, none of them elicited that reaction with a simple touch.
James Gibson was fire—plain and simple.
James’s early thoughts on Alice
There was this urge to keep Alice protected, to ensure she was safe. And it certainly didn’t feel remotely fake to him. This felt like the beginning of something big—something real. James’s mind was on fire with thoughts of Alice, of the art he wanted to create. His heart hadn’t pounded like this since his divorce, and he had hope that he was on his way back to himself. Buckeye Falls turned out to be better for him than he had expected. And then there was Alice. His world had been so gray and lifeless this last year. But Alice promised an abundance of color.
