Guiding the Fall is a romantic book with many twists and turns. It is well written and well thought out. You not only get Jack and Olivia's story, but there are several side stories to follow at the same time that all intertwine. Unlike other books, you don't get muddled down or confused by these side stories and additional characters.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would read others by this author.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review of this book.
It all starts with the answering of a phone call. Olivia Golden is working at her brother's Raft Shop when Jack Forrester calls asking about a raft trip. But when he moves to Hailey, Colorado, to look into a new business venture and work with a biographer documenting his career, they meet face to face. It's just that things aren't always what they seem to be.
Olivia enjoys the attention that her beauty earns her. She's student-teaching at the local Middle School when she’s forced to fight charges levied against her at school and Jack makes her a proposition she can’t refuse.
Lyle Woodward, the biographer who is writing about Jack's life falls for Erica Forrester, who just so happens to be Jack's sister. Erica is hiding a secret and Lyle is determined to pry it out of her. Erica pushes him away even though she is miserable. There is no denying that the two of them were meant for each other.
This is such a wonderful romance that not only tells the story of one couple falling in love but two. Christy Hayes does such a wonderful job telling their stories without leaving a detail out but it felt like the book was full of too many details. Also, I didn't realize that there was a book before this because I was completely lost on a couple of things. There were so many different characters in the novel that at times I felt like I was confused as to whose story I was reading. It seemed as if each chapter was told from someone else's point of view and there were several times that I had to go back to the beginning of the chapter to see whose point of view I was reading. Even though that part was confusing, the fact that there were several main character and the story didn't focus on just one or two characters, the story was very interesting and definitely kept me reading late into the night. All in all, I would recommend this book to everyone.
