Two people scarred by past trauma have a chance to write a new chapter in their lives, overcome loss, and find love in the third entry in the Madison River Romance series.
Screenwriter Cecilia "Blue" Walker is victim to life's worst plot twists. Having lost her daughter to the depths of the Madison River and her husband to the arms of another woman, she finds herself yearning for something to restore her brittle faith and once-vibrant career.
Hope arrives in the form of her childhood friend, Thomas Beck, a firefighter with a legacy of larger-than-life rescues who doesn't see himself as a hero. Haunted by his past, Thomas only agrees to a movie adaptation of his story if Blue, his longtime crush, is the screenwriter.
However, as Blue and Thomas work together to bring his heroism to the big screen, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood threaten to shed light on secrets that could tear their fragile relationship and their lives apart.

Blue and Thomas had the sweetest relationship as children!! I loved the way she did all she could to distract him from the disaster that his parents were and the way he would do anything for her. Even kiss a frog… Her propensity to write scripts for him to act out was very cute!
I really enjoyed Glory Falls. The split-timeline was perfect for revealing events from the past little by little. Thomas’ adorable dog, Molly, lightened the more serious thread which was further offset by sweet, romantic moments. Thomas was so amusing with his very serious nature and naiveté regarding relationships and even about flirting! He was a hero, even before his guilt began to drive him to take greater risks to ensure that no one was injured on his watch again! I loved that even though he carried a great weight of guilt, he continued to keep his eyes on the Lord and never wavered in his faith.
Twists in the plot had me surprised and I really didn’t see the ending coming. Or that other part. Or the other one…
I have been enjoying the Madison River Romance series and have come to love the people of the little town there. It was fun seeing characters I have already gotten to know and meeting some new ones. While Glory Falls stands alone, enhance your reading of it by starting with the first two books of the series.
