Review: If I Fall by Kate Noble
If I Fall is a regency romance with a bit of mystery and espionage thrown in! Written by Kate Noble, who also writes under the name Kate Rorick for The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. (If you haven't watch these, you need to!)
Humiliated, Sarah Forrester tries to face the Ton with as much dignity as she can, but it’s just too much. She knows what the gossips are saying. Since Jason, The Duke of Rayne, broke off their engagement she's been known as “The Girl Who Lost the Duke”. But as quickly as they can turn against you, they can be turned around. With Lady Worth's guidance that's just what happens, and soon she becomes known as “The Golden Girl”.
When Lieutenant Jackson Fletcher returns to town, he’s not happy with this new Sarah. So he derives a plan to bring "The Golden Girl" down from the pedestal she’s on and back to being the Sarah he used to know by masquerading as “The Black Raven”. This plan leads them both into a world of murder and espionage. As Jack and Sarah try to find the murderer, will they find love in the process? Will Sarah forgive Jack for his deception when she finds out who he really is?
I did have a hard time getting into the story at first. (Which might have been my own fault, due to being too tired to read.) I was almost half way through before I got hooked, but then it really took off! I couldn't put it down. It had me on the edge of my seat and had a nice twist at the end.
I really enjoyed this story. This is the fifth in a series, and is the first I've read. It can be read as a stand alone, but are tied together by characters. For example, Noble’s newest book Let it Be Me is about Bridget Forrester, Sarah’s sister. Here is a guide on how all Noble’s books are connected.
4 out of 5 stars.
I purchased my own copy of this book.
