"Alicia Sanders has suffered constant humiliation at the hands of her unfaithful husband and, as a consequence, has been the victim of malicious gossip in the small town of Creswell Falls."


Supermodel Christina Brewster returns to her roots, also in Creswell Falls, after she retires. Christina had a terrible childhood so I would think it would be the last place she would end up.

Lots of plot threads entangle the two, including Alicia's son, Christina's father and Alicia's mother, Christiana's wretched mother, Christina's friend with benefits, Alicia's husband's BFF and an surprising link between the two families.

I think this would have made a better day time televison drama than a novel.

Loved the cover art!

Cresswell Falls is the debut novel for Kerry Belchambers and it's a better than average first book. On the surface, it is a romance, but it covers issues beyond that. Belchambers captures the problems of living in a small town where everyone knows you and everything you do. The book is also about forgiving people for the past and the destructive power of words. The biggest lesson though is about learning the difference between what you are responsible for and what you cannot control. All of these can make a life productive or devastating, something Belchambers illustrates quite effectively.

This book has a slightly different pacing to it, which is subtle, but unique. This might be due to the fact that Belchambers is an African living in Kenya and writing about a small town in the United States. Why she chose to do this isn't stated in the book, but it gives it an interesting touch Cresswell Falls is a good story with a few twists and a good pace, plus the characters are appealing and more realistic than in many books. It shows that Kerry Belchambers has real promise and has produced a book worth reading.
Excellent read. I must say this young writer did an excellent job with her first novel. Characters are believable and interesting. The storyline holds your interest to the very end. Highly recommend.
Great read looking forward to the next book written by this author
Because this book had an interesting premise, despite being disappointed with the first few chapters I kept reading to the end hoping it would improve. Found the writing very choppy, the dialogue stilted, and the plot at times staged and implausible. Very disappointing.
