Babette De Jongh
Angel Falls by Babette De Jongh is a contemporary romance based in southern Alabama. The main character, Casey Alexander, suffered a devastating ankle injury, which prevented her from becoming a prima ballerina in NYC, as she had dreamed. Yet, she didn’t completely give up her dream. She moved back to her hometown of Angel Falls and opened a dance studio above the newspaper. Dance may have been one love in her life, but she also deeply wanted a romantic partner.
Living in such a small town made finding someone to love a bit challenging. That held true until sexy, Ian Buchanan came on the scene and bought the town’s flailing paper. On top of that, Casey’s ex-boyfriend, Ben, ended up being available again. A lot of people were pushing Ben and Casey to pick up where they left off before he married Casey’s best friend and had children. Casey had to make a decision between the two men. She’d gotten a second chance in her dance career. Would she embrace a second chance at love with her old flame or leap into the arms of a new and less certain love?
Beyond the fascinating story of a unique love triangle, de Jongh brings Lizzie, an Australian Shepherd into the story. I was glad to see Lizze brought into the story as she drew my eyes to her on the cover of the book.
With well-defined characters, a progressive, unique story line, I found Babette De Jongh’s Angel Falls Book One hard to put down. The author did an excellent job of holding my interest throughout the entire book. There was never a dull moment as Casey fought a romantic battle that is one-of-a-kind.
