I Totally Fell for Fall For Anything!

I was lucky enough to score an ARC of Fall for Anything, and let me tell you, when I saw the big manila envelope in my mail box, I freaked out. And then I ignored my family for the rest of the night to read it.

First off, this is the blurb from Courtney's website:

When Eddie Reeves’s father commits suicide her life is consumed by the nagging question of why? Why when he was a legendary photographer and a brilliant teacher? Why when he seemed to find inspiration in everything he saw? And, most important, why when he had a daughter who loved him more than anyone else in the world? When she meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father’s and a photographer himself, an instant and dangerous attraction begins. Culler seems to know more about her father than she does and could possibly hold the key to the mystery surrounding his death. But Eddie’s vulnerability has weakened her and Culler Evans is getting too close. Her need for the truth keeps her hanging on… but are some questions better left unanswered?

I love Courtney's style and have devoured her other books, so the expectation going into FFA was already pretty high. I wanted to love it, and let me tell you, I did! Eddie tugged at my heart from the very first line.She was vulnerable and broken and so unlike Courtney's other main characters, that I immediately empathized and wanted her to find the answers she needed to heal.

Also, the interaction between Eddie and Milo was fantastic. Who wouldn't want a best friend like him? One that had your back no matter what. Who you could count on for anything at all. (As an added bonus, Courtney has a short story from Milo's POV that is stand alone and rocks here.)

Then, Culler Evans shows up, and it seems he might have the answers Eddie's been desperately searching for. Together they backtrack to try and understand what made her father do it, and along the way, Eddie has to figure out how much to believe and more importantly, how much to trust this stranger.

Courtney writes in a sparse, yet poignantly beautiful way that reels you in, wraps around your guts, and tugs at you until that very last word. I can't say enough good things about Fall For Anything, and in one week, if you don't go out and buy it, you're missing out on a fabulous read.
