Publisher's Summary

First comes love, then comes marriage...At least, that was Gracie's plan at the ripe old age of 14. She loved 18-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. And how can she, when she's face-to-face with Riley at every turn? The one-time 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.

The end is missing

As I listened to this book, parts seemed very familiar to me. As it turns out, I read the paperback a few years ago. The "ending" sent me into storage at 4am to find the book. This recording is missing the last 30 pages of the book. If you felt cheated by the ending, you were.

Falling for Gracie - fell short of expectations.

What was most disappointing about Susan Mallery’s story?

I have enjoyed many of Susan Mallery's novels. Unfortunately, "Falling for Gracie" fell short for me. I found the character's to be basically unlikable. When I read a book, such as this, for enjoyment purposes, I want to feel invested in the characters. In other words, I want to like them.

Gracie, who was sweet, was constantly apologizing...constantly - taking responsibility for EVERYTHING on the face of the earth that ever "should o', would o', could of" gone wrong. It became pathetic, which made the story drag.

I like Susan Mallery, though. I find many of her novels fun.

Savannah Richards did a very good job performing the book. I think the problem was in the story, not the performance.

If I were the editor for this book, I would have cut most of the apologies. You can express regret without constantly whining," I'm sorry". I think that many women fall into the trap of empathizing with someone's circumstances by saying, I'm sorry. I have learned that when you constantly empathize by this method, you eventually become blamed for that situation. When I find myself in this position, I now say, "I hate that for you", It conveys that you understand and feel for your friend, without taking responsibility for it.
