Fall from India Place by Samantha Young


I’d forgotten that I’d pre-ordered this book, so when it showed up on my Kindle I was pretty excited.  So much for my planned summer reading list.   India Place takes place several years after Before Jamaica Lane (click to read that review.)  Ellie’s little sister, Hannah, is all grown up and and still not really over her first crush, Marco.  Having read all the other books in this series, I remembered a bit about Marco.  But this turns out to be the weakest of the series so far.  Hannah’s fear of heartbreak causes her to do some very foolish things, it’s as if, she’s never really grownup at all.  I got annoyed at Hannah, and all her stubbornness.

It was nice to catch up with former characters, but I could have used a family tree to keep up with all the new children.  I had a hard time remembering who belonged to whom.  I wouldn’t start with this book, even though all of these can be read as stand alone novels.



Goodreads summary:

The New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street and Down London Road returns with a story about letting go of the past and learning to trust in the future…

When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro, five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving into temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life, something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together.…

But just when Marco thinks they’re committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him, a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again…
