How a Star Falls Blog Tour + Giveaway!

Today I am taking part in another great blog tour! You may remember in August I was part of the cover reveal for How a Star Falls. Well, now the novella has been released! And it is a wonderful story! I’ll share my review in a moment, but first a little about the book. Also, don’t forget to visit the rest of the blogs on the tour!

About the Book

Sweet NA Contemporary Romance Novella

How does a star fall?

Quickly. Completely. Unexpectedly.

Derrick Knolane escapes to Trinidad Head most evenings, avoiding his apartment and planning for the day he'll break free of Humboldt County. Working in a music store might be fine for a while, but it's far from the goal he had in mind when he got his college degree. Not to mention the fact that his roommate is a jerk and his family won't stop trying to run his life.

Then Brielle falls into his world.

She claims to be a star. Not from Hollywood, but from heaven. He thinks she's crazy. Certainly delusional. Yet, he can't just leave her alone on the cliffs. So he takes her home.

And his whole world falls apart.

A heartfelt and fanciful contemporary romance novella, How a Star Falls explores the uncertain season of new adulthood and shows that sometimes the worst inconveniences make for the best miracles of all.

My Review: 5 Stars
I almost never read contemporary fiction. It just doesn’t interest me the way fantasy or historical do, but I was intrigued by the premise and mystery of Amber’s story. Once I started, it drew me right in, and I read the whole thing in one sitting. It is wonderfully written, and the romance is adorable. I loved that it was written almost all from the guy’s point-of-view. Derrick was a great character, and Amber did a great job fleshing him out. She also perfectly captured how, when you reach adulthood, things don’t always turn out the way you dreamed when you were young, but it can still lead to a bright and even better future. I highly recommend How a Star Falls. It’s both cute and real. I wish there was more clean new adult fiction like this. Don’t miss out on reading this lovely little story!

"Perfect for when you want a whimsical, heartwarming read, How a Star Falls is more than an inspirational romance...it's a wink and a smile." - Joanne Bischof, award winning author of This Quiet Sky

"Amber Stokes has perfectly expressed the challenges of twenty-something life in her sweet contemporary new adult novella, How a Star Falls. Brielle and Derrick's journey reminds us all of the search to find ourselves in the midst of young adulthood. Their story is charming and wistful with emotions we can all relate to experiencing at some point in our lives. It is a tale about letting go in order to find yourself once again while never losing the importance of who you are...and who you can be." - Cerella Sechrist, author of Gentle Persuasion and The Paris Connection
