She’s the sister who will stop at nothing to find her runaway brother. But another man is determined to catch up to him first. When their paths cross on a mountain top, which one will come out victorious? Find out in Debbie Mason’s third visit to Highland Falls, Falling in Love on Willow Creek.


Sadie Gray is about to be a mom, literally. She could pop at any moment. But first she needs to find her little brother before the law does. So she sets off for her hometown of Highland Falls, North Carolina in search of her sibling.

Then the baby comes early, and she goes into labor while stranded alone on top of a mountain. Thankfully a handsome park ranger finds her and delivers her daughter, and the two of them become fast friends. Yet while he’d love to be more than that, Sadie doesn’t intend to stay in town.

There’s another fly in the ointment that Sadie doesn’t know about—that park ranger is actually undercover FBI agent Chase Roberts, who is hunting down an on-the-run informant, who just happens to be her brother. When Chase took the assignment, he never planned to fall in love with a new mother and her baby girl, let alone his prey’s sister! What’s a man to do?

Falling in Love on Willow Creek is the kind of sweet story you’ll want to curl up with and savor on a rainy day. From the small town setting to the varied, interesting residents who inhabit the community, this is a tale that will steal your heart.

Mason crafts a romantic novel that will have you cheering on Sadie and Chase, hoping that they will both let love into their lives. This story also reminds us that communication is what matters most in any relationship, and it can help the book’s protagonists overcome any obstacle they face.

This story actually reminded me a lot of how my husband and I first met and the excitement we had discovering new love and how wonderful it was finding someone who truly understood me. That’s a gift to treasure, and Mason conveys these emotions and ideas with a deft hand. The result is a novel that you simply won’t want to put down until you’ve turned the very last page.

Don’t worry though, if you fly through this book too quickly, Mason has other novels in this series as well as other stand alone novels to enjoy. But first, pack Falling in Love on Willow Creek in your carry on as you set out for your next vacation. Or just kick back in your recliner and let Mason transport you to Highland Falls. I guarantee you’ll relish the trip. Enjoy your journey!
