And Thank You to These Wonderful Reviewers Too!

Here's the second half of the reviews I promised in my last blog post. Thank you so much to all the reviewers who took the time to read and respond to When Adam Fell. I can never convey how much your time and consideration mean to me.

Pat Henshaw can pull me through a story like no other. When Adam Fell is the fourth book in her Foothills Pride series and is just as interesting as the others.

I loved that we get to see Adam’s story. He was intriguing when we saw him in previous books with his quirky mountain bistro that’s only open seasonally. But I so didn’t expect what we got. It was heartwarming to see this second time around story go so well.

The story is just enough to get your teeth into it and connect with the characters. I love these Foothills Pride novellas. I want more of them so we can see how the town evolves and develops and so all of my favorite characters can get their happily ever afters. The one I want the most next is John’s story. He’s intriguing with how tight lipped about his private life he is.

I simply love returning to Pat Henshaw’s world of the Foothills Pride series, where a community in Sierra Foothills near San Francisco is the location for a small group of gay men to settle and call home.

If you’ve been reading the Foothills Pride series this is another satisfying instalment. If you’ve not read the books, while this reads well as a standalone, I think it would be nice to go back and read the first three – if not for anything else you get to read about other charming characters such as Fredi, Max, Jimmy and Guy.

Bike Book Reviews: 5 double fudge brownie/5

It is no secret that I love this series, I have loved the guys of Foothills Pride from day one, and I knew I would love this book too, and boy did I! Pat Henshaw outdid herself on this one!

Love Bytes: 4 1/2/5

I loved the continuing tale of Stone Acres and how these two men fit in with the other men and background characters we’ve met in previous stories.  I really feel like Stone Acres, California is a real place, and I could stop by and visit.

I would highly recommend you pick up this series.  The novellas could probably be read as standalones, but take my advice, read them in order.

I highly recommend this book, and the entire series.  Enjoy.

Joyfully Jay: 3 1/2/5

Overall, this was a nice addition to a great series. While not my favorite of the series, I got a chance to meet back up with some of my old favorites. If you are a fan of this series, you don’t want to miss this one.

On the other hand, I enjoyed the plot of Adam trying to reestablish himself in the town he grew up in. I liked the quirky drama and the way it was resolved. The overall story was promising, and I enjoyed it.

Oh My Shelves: 3 1/2 / 4

Seeing David and Adam work together, to learn how to be with one another after being apart and yet having the history they do between them was bittersweet. I kept wanting them to give in and do more than just lie on a bed while mattress shopping, I wanted these to heal and be together again.

Jessie G. Books: 3.75 / 5

…ultimately, I liked Adam and Jason/David. I like that they found each other again and were able to love each other again…

This is the first book I've read by Pat Henshaw, and I'll definitely be reading more by this author in the future.  When Adam Fell is a good, quick read and is a second chance romance.

It’s breezy and shiny with a “we’ll conquer their town!” spirit that’s just a shade light. I’m always happy to see bullies and bigots get shafted, and you can expect that happens here.
