Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Why They Call it Falling by Christina Sinisi




Book: Why They Call It Falling

Author: Christina Sinisi

Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance

Release date: June 7, 2022

Formerly the wild child of three sisters, Emma Marano grew up to be a single mom working two jobs, estranged from her mother, and lying to her friends. She’d told everyone that her daughter’s father wanted nothing to do with his child, but in reality, her own inability to deal with her mistakes and shame led to the biggest lie of her life. But her daughter, Haley, is all Emma has in the world, so how can she regret keeping Haley to herself? Emma’s struggling, though, and her life is slowly imploding.

Right after high school, Justin Lee broke up with Emma Marano and joined the Army, leaving her and all her drama behind. Years later, he stumbles upon her and what turns out to be a daughter he never knew he had. Angry and confused, he insists on having a relationship with his daughter, but to do so, he’ll need to rebuild some sort of relationship with Emma, too. As he gets to know his daughter—and Emma again—he soon realizes that his biggest mistake was leaving her all those years ago. What he dismissed as drama turns out to be a serious mental health issue, and Emma needs help. Now, Justin has to decide if he can see past her flaws and forgive her lies, and together, they’ll have to work to reclaim their love and a faith in each other and in God, or they risk losing something precious in the process.

I am a big fan of the Contemporary Christian Romance Genre. Why They Call It Falling by Christina Sinisi is the latest book in this genre that I have read. I have enjoyed a couple of other books by Christina Sinisi so I was interested in reading her new book. 

Emma Marano is a single mom, working 2 jobs and her life is in shambles. She has always told her friends that her Daughter's father didn't want anything to do with her. Her daughter, Haley, is now older and Emma feels that maybe it is time for her to know her Dad. Justin Lee is Emma's old High School boyfriend and Haley's Dad. He enrolled in the Army right after high school and lost touch with Emma. He recently found Emma and he discovers he has a daughter he never knew about. Justin tells Emma he wants a relationship with Haley, but he also realizes that he has to repair his relationship with Emma. Justin soon realizes that he made a mistake by leaving Emma so many years ago as he sees how much LOVE he still has for her. Justin also realizes that Emma wasn't creating Drama, but instead has mental health issues. Will Justin be able to help Emma with her Mental Health Issues? Will Emma, Haley, and Justin become one happy family? 

WOW, this book captivated me from the very first chapter. Emma is a wonderful Mom to her daughter, but also knows she is missing out on having a father in life. I really appreciate how the Author tackles Mental Health Issues in this book. Justin Lee is an outstanding character in this book. I truly love how he immediately wants to step up and be a father to Haley and knows he missed out on so many years. I enjoyed reading how Justin and Emma started to put Faith in their life and relied on God to get them through some struggles as they rebuild their relationship. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Second Chance Romance books! GREAT BOOK!

More from Christina

In Why They Call It Falling, the hero discovers he has a daughter he didn’t know existed when he sees his ex-girlfriend in a strawberry patch at Boone Hall Plantation (here in Charleston, South Carolina). In the book, the name of the plantation had to be changed to protect the innocent, but the recipe below doesn’t.

This recipe comes from a cookbook titled, Charleston Receipts Repeats. This book has modern recipes, as well as old-fashioned ones dating back through generations. It’s a perfect accompaniment to my Charleston-based romance.

Strawberry Pie I

1 9-inch pie shell, baked and cooled

1 cup sugar

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup water

Dash salt

1 3-ounce strawberry jello (delete 1 tablespoon)

Pour half of mixture into pie shell.

Pour remaining mixture over strawberries.

Refrigerate until congealed.

Serve with whipping cream.

Serves 6 to 8. Chill 3 to 4 hours.

 

Enjoy, and think of the sweet taste of summer and the enduring love of fall. Second chances are often the most delicious!
