CATCH ME WHEN I FALL is funny, sweet and surprisingly emotional.
Jacob lives alone and is basically happy. I'm pretty sure he's only happy because he doesn't know any other way to live, other than alone. Until his guardian angel, Gabriel, lands in his backyard. Then his whole world is turned upside down.
If there's one thing I love about John Wiltshire, it's the dialogue he writes. He can write some good conversation. The snark between Jacob and Gabriel was laugh out loud funny. There's also so much emotion conveyed in the dialogue. Amongst the snark and wit, I could feel the developing love between the two.
I was surprised by how emotional I became with this story. I was just bopping along with Jacob and Gabriel in their cute little tale, and I all of a sudden found myself very attached to them. There was some light angst, but it still hit me pretty hard.
I really loved that I didn't know where the story was going to go until the last 10% or so. But, oddly enough, the plot became rather predictable after that. I'm not completely happy with how the HEA was handled, but they were still sweet, nonetheless.
John Wiltshire has cemented himself in my top authors list with CATCH ME WHEN I FALL. It's unlike his other stories, but the writing is still the superb quality I've come to expect.
