After ten years, Sidney Wilks and Grady Nash are still crazy about each other.  They have good friends, a house they love, a rock solid relationship and jobs they each enjoy. What more could they want? That’s when Nash realizes that the day trader job he loves with its hours spent in front of the computer and his poor eating habits aren’t good for his aging body or health. Worried Sidney will find someone younger and in better shape, Nash sets out to get back the body he once had, no matter the cost.  

When his father dies, Sidney is so busy dealing with his feeling for the man who beat and betrayed him and learning of his new half-siblings that he misses the warning signs that Nash’s health is in trouble. When Nash starts getting irritable and his sex drive wanes, instead of asking questions, Sidney turns the problem inward and lets it slide. Can these two committed lovers start talking before it’s too late or will Nash’s health suffer irreparable harm? 

Fall is the third release in Carol Lynne’s Seasons of Love series, and because it’s a continuing story of their lives, the books should be read in sequential order. 

I love the concept of this four-part series and watching as Nash and Sidney move through the different phases of their lives as they grow and change with age has been a treat. It’s not something I’ve seen other authors do before and shows the creative talent I’ve come to expect from Ms. Lynne. With Fall, she’s once again given us a well written story covering issues ‘real’ people deal with every day.  There’s career satisfaction, co-worker attraction, middle-age weight gain and the desire to get back into shape, the death of a parent…in this case a despised one, friends, learning about family and serious illness. All these topics Ms. Lynne handles well, all while continuing the loving relationship of Nash and Sidney…even if they have a few realistic bumps in the road along the way. 

Besides two warm and lovable main characters, this romance has everything needed to make it another enjoyable and entertaining book. I look forward to the final release, Winter, coming after the first of the year.
