Throwback Thursday Presents...

Falling for Gracie
Susan Mallery
Released March 1, 2005
384 Pages

First comes love, then comes marriage. . .

  Or that was Gracie's plan, anyway, at the ripe old age of fourteen. She loved eighteen-year-old heartthrob Riley with a desperation that made her a town legend. Even now that she's all grown up, the locals in sleepy Los Lobos won't let her forget her youthful crush.   

. . .but it's not as easy as it looks.

  And how can she, when she's face-to-face with Riley at every turn? The onetime bad boy has come back to town seeking respectability-but the sparks that fly between them are anything but respectable! Gracie's determined to keep her distance, but when someone sets out to ruin both their reputations, the two discover that first love is sometimes better the second time around.

Falling for Gracie is one of my absolute favorites by Susan Mallery. It is actually the second in the Los Lobos Series, the first being Someone Like You. Gracie is the kind of heroine that you immediately feel a connection with. She is smart, funny, hard-working and very much misunderstood. Especially by Riley Whitefield, who you couldn't have paid to have been in the same room with her years ago. But the more that he gets to know the REAL Gracie, he sees that he never really gave her the benefit of the doubt, even if she did put a live skunk in his car as a teenager to stop him from going on a date with another girl!!

The book is laugh out loud funny, romantic and just plain fun!! Pick it up today, or grab it from the Library, but just read it!! You won't be disappointed.
