Fall by Jennifer Hurst

I recently finished reading Fall by Jennifer Hurst. This book hooked me pretty quick. There is a strong, likable female protagonist, a couple of hot guys, a secret, a mysterious box, near-death experiences and supernatural elements that add just the right amount of fantasy for my tastes.  The story-line is solid and I found myself really caring about the characters and thinking about them long after I finished reading! I loved it!

This was my second time reading Fall. Last year, I was given the privilege of being a “beta reader” for this book.  This means that I got to read it before anyone else and give the author feedback. I loved being a part of that process and I look forward to being able to say “I read that before you! Hahaha!” To purchase Fall on paperback or Kindle click here. For other digital formats (PDF, Nook, Etc) go here

I am also so happy to be able to participate in my very first BLOG TOUR!


As part of her online blog tour and in honor of the release of her book FALL in paperback, Jennifer Hurst is sponsoring a special contest. Here are the details that we can provide to you at this time:

The FALL contest will involve any of the blogs that Jennifer Hurst visits or her book is featured on and will close on December 31st, 2011. The entrants have to answer five questions about the book they’ve read (bought, borrowed, or stolen - shame on you) or post a link to Jennifer's website on their twitter, facebook, or blog (need link for verification).

Then the names will be entered in a random name picker generator ( and announced on Jennifer's website on January 31st, 2012. The winner will receive a gift certificate for a night stay at the actual bed and breakfast where the story takes place.

Other prizes include an autographed copy of FALL, and she will randomly select 3 contestant’s names to use in the sequel to FALL, PLUS they will receive a free copy of that book when it is published.

Each blog that Jennifer Hurst visits will have a different set of questions people can answer and they may enter as many times as they want - but they can enter once per blog site that they visit. So the more sites you visit, the more you can enter your name, thus increasing your chances of winning the Gift certificate, a copy of the book FALL, and their name in the sequel.

Additional information will be forthcoming, plus Jennifer will give us the 3 specific questions for the readers of our blog to answer as part of the entry process. Please stay tuned.


1. What other purposes was the Schoolhouse used for before it was converted to a B&B?
2. What did JD eat for Thanksgiving dinner with Liu?
3. What was JD looking for before she left the hospital?
