Is there a such thing as too hot?

Kate Delaney left New Falls, Tennessee, heartbroken and hell-bent for Hollywood. Now, she’s back, and she’s written The End on a screenplay, which a Hollywood mega-producer believes is movie magic. Just one problem—a nerve-nuking thief absconds with her laptop, attached USB back-up, and the contents of her underwear drawer, and the heartbreaker from ten years ago just walked through the door wearing a sheriff’s badge.

When a teen-aged Kate bloomed, her older brother Reese established a no-look, no-touch, no-anything else rule. 
Quentin Taylor figured it was the anything else that was the real trouble. She’d been attractive then. Now she was near irresistible, and he wanted to know one thing. Did Reese’s dictate still stand? He agrees to help Kate find her missing script. Just one problem—that damn chemistry.

In New Falls, Tennessee, people and belongings go missing, but they usually resurface, and everything takes a turn toward love. 
Will Kate and Quentin get their Hollywood ending or will it get Lost in New Falls?

My Review:

Lost in New Falls is the first book in the Lost in Love series by Cherie Marks but it is not the first book that I have read in the Lost in Love series as I had the pleasure of reading Lost in Christmas book two first. The books can be read as a stand-alone. I fell in love with this series and all the people of New Falls when I read Lost in Christmas.

Kate Delaney and her brother Reese lost their parents in a car accident many years ago. Afterward, they went to live with their grandfather in New Falls. Kate hung out with Reese and all his friends.

When Kate started to blossom all the boys started looking at her differently but Reese put a stop to whatever ideas the boys may have had for Kate as he did not want to see her hurt.

One of Reese’s best friends Quentin Taylor had a big crush on Kate but would not follow up because of Reese’s warning. Quentin didn’t want to go against his friend because of all the things he had been through.

After high school, Kate made a pass at Quentin but he turned her away because of Reese’s warning. Quentin cared for Kate very much and it hurt him to do that to her. Kate then left for Hollywood to become a writer.

Now, ten years later Kate has returned. Kate and Reese’s grandfather is dying. Kate returned to be with him and to finish her manuscript. There have been some burglaries in New Falls of late.

Kate’s home is burglarized. The burglar takes her laptop with her manuscript on it and the USB flash drive that she backed it up on which was still in the laptop. Oh, and he took her panties as well. The only copy of her manuscript she has left was mailed to her but now it is missing as well. No worries it only landed in the wrong hands by mistake.

Quentin is now the Sheriff of New Falls and decides to help Kate find her manuscript. Quentin drives Kate around town to look for her manuscript. But her manuscript is getting passed around a lot. People are really enjoying what they are reading and just keep passing her manuscript from one person to another.

Will Kate and Quentin find her manuscript in time for her to meet her deadline? Will Kate and Quentin work things out this time around or will Reese once again stand in their way?

I love the world of Lost in Love tremendously. It feels like a Hallmark world. The people seem like people you would want as a family and or the best friends ever. Lost in New Falls is a warm cozy kind of story that you would read on a cold night by a fire wrapped in your favorite snuggie/ blanket. Kate and Quentin’s story is one that we all wish for every day. I can’t wait to read more in the world of Lost in Love.

I highly recommend Lost in Love to all romantic fans! Grab a copy of Lost in Love today!

Be sure to check out all the books in the Lost in Love series.

Lost in Christmas #2





It all started with an old fashioned typewriter. When my family brought it home, I knew what I wanted to do. All those stories rolling around in my head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys were satisfying in their own right, but when I pulled out a finished page, I knew this was for me. Since then, I’ve graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.

I’m a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning—a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, I love to make people laugh, smile, and have “a-ha” moments. My goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.
