Fear of Falling (Shores of Indian Lake #5) by Catherine Lanigan + $100 Giveaway!

Fear of Falling
by Catherine Lanigan
Adult Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 368 Pages
March 1st 2016 by Harlequin Heartwarming

Her best bet is to stay away

Was Olivia hearing this right? The one man in Indian Lake she'd found truly intriguing since, well, forever—the hopelessly handsome heir to the region's most successful farming operation, Rafe Barzonni—was involved in horse racing? That made him, and her sudden attraction, downright dangerous. He wasn't just out of her league. He was a gambler. Like her father. With the shame of her father's racetrack betting addiction still haunting her, Olivia can't be part of that world. Rafe's world. She can't trust him, or his magnetism. But there's something deep in his incredible blue eyes that keeps drawing her closer…

I'm happy to be a part of the tour for Fear of Falling.  The Harlequin Heartwarming line is one of my favorites because I know exactly what I'm going to get when I pick one up- a sweet, clean romance.  I love that.

This is the second book in this series, by this author that I have read.  In this book we meet Olivia and Rafe.  Olivia's thing is photography and I love how that was incorporated into the book.  Rafe is all about horses and not just horses, but racing horses and that is something that scares Olivia.  Olivia and Rafe have their share of misunderstandings- back and forth throughout the book.  It certainly takes them quite awhile to get on the same page about everything but things eventually start coming together.

I loved the general feeling of community and family in this book.  It felt comfortable and it helped me have an idea of who Rafe and Olivia really are.  Their family and friends are part of them.  I kind of wish I had read all the other previous books because I could see that Olivia and Rafe's friends all had a love story that I didn't know about.  It didn't stop me from enjoying the book and I never felt lost, I just wished I had known them better.

This is another perfectly sweet and clean romance from Catherine Lanigan and Harlequin Heartwarming.  It was a good, romantic escape.
