Rori Mason knows what an abomination men are from first hand experiences. The rejection by her beloved Nate for another woman and ultimately a decade wasted with an abuser provided empirical data to Rori what the traits of the Y chromosome are. After vowing no men, Rori earns income ironically as a stripper. Life uses love to orchestrate a cosmic satire that Rori knows makes her the butt of the joke as she encounters Nate for the first time since he deserted her. To her chagrin and shame, Rori still loves Nate even though he married someone else. Nate¿s wife is dead and he raises their daughter alone while ministering to a small flock of worshippers. Nate learns where Rori is performing and soon realizes he needs her in his life permanently. She treats him with disdain to hide her true feelings that mistrust coincides and shares her heart with her love of him. FALLING STAR is a wonderful contemporary romance that hooks the readers because of the delightfully humanistic lead female protagonist. Though Nate is a wonderful person and his daughter precocious, Rori owns the novel chapter, page, and word. Readers will admire her for she refuses to allow life¿s left hooks to keep her down on the canvas. Fans of a warm second chance at love tale starring people readers will cherish should read Karen Weisner¿s beautiful book one of the Angelfire trilogy and obtain the other two novels, FIRST LOVE and FOREVER MAN, as soon as possible as this reviewer plans to do.

I've never seen a writer more adept at capturing the emotional complexities of the human experience. Her love stories are bold, fearless, and unforgettable. The world of women's fiction is a better place because Ms. Wiesner is in it.
