Emelia Mason is a fierce reporter who manages to dig up dirt on well know people.  She is also a huge fan of Narnia and loves climbing into every wardrobe she comes across looking to see if the back opens to the mystical land.  When one of her stories causes tragic results she heads for Oxford, England to try and make amends.  Peter Carlisle is a rower for Great Britain and was working toward making it to the Olympics until an injured shoulder prevents him from doing that. He wants to try and make a come-back to make up for letting down his biggest supporter but doing so just might permanently injure his shoulder.  From their unusual first meeting to the planning of an important fundraiser, Emelia and Peter find themselves strongly attracted to one other.  But will that attraction be strong enough to endure some hard truths that will rise to the surface?

I thoroughly enjoyed Close to You but I have to say I loved Can’t Help Falling!  The characters were fun, full of life and realistically drawn.  Peter was a great guy who loved the Lord but definitely was not perfect.  Emelia was someone you can’t help but love.  She’s down to earth and kind but also has a bit of sass, which added great humor to the story.  I also liked the secondary characters of Jackson and Allie.  Both were really great people and good friends to have.  There was a neat lesson having to do with a tea cup that I just loved.  You’ll have to read the story to see what I mean but it’s something that will definitely stay with me.  If you enjoy stories by Jenny B. Jones, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this book.  So, sit back, relax and take a trip to Oxford, England where you Can’t Help Falling for this story.
