From "the next major voice in Southern fiction" (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd-couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness.

It's summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin' is easy.

Unless, that is, you've just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her extremist husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger, Diana Harrington, fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington's summer isn't off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a worn-out Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray's kindness, Diana's tide begins to turn. But when her first love returns, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana's help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans-and for a new generation of readers.

    Kristy Woodson Harvey is a new favorite author for me in what I think of as the Southern chick lit genre. I enjoyed this, her latest book, quite a bit. It's the story of two women, Gray and Diana, who meet when they're both reeling from a series of life's blows. Their circumstances are quite different though, and Gray is in a position to help Diana with her immediate needs (like a job and a place to stay) and feels compelled to help her since she thinks she's the reason Diana lost her job. Gray is more of an emotional mess and not surprisingly, in the end Diana helps Gray as well. In between there are reunions with a lost loves, a new love, and an emotional crisis or two. But there's also humor and heart. And in some ways it does feel a bit apropos for 2020 - the year of "we're all in it together". I did listen to parts of this as an audiobook as well as reading it, and the narrations were excellent.
    My thanks to Netgalley and Gallery Books for providing a copy for an unbiased review.

    I loved this book. It was well told and i love how two strangers become the best of friends.
  • (2/5)
    I did like the first third then it started to drag and I was gritting my teeth to finish it. This book would have benefited from a clearer focus and a better editor. There was plenty that should have been cut. Pros: lot of interesting women. Strong friendships. Colorful side characters. Diana’s Tshirts.
    Cons: melodramatic, some toxic gender ideas, ridiculous matchmaking (I didn’t buy any of the Frank or the baby storyline). Andrew deserved better, what the heck with the age gap being ok if the guy is older (Pryce) but not younger? Fells like falling just got boring frankly.
