Falling Star by Diana Dempsey



I read a LOT of books, including various genres of novels; usually 2-3 books (sometimes more) per week. Since getting my Kindle Paperwhite (click to read my review of this ereader) my reading addiction has gone to an even higher level! :<)
 
At the same time, with so many books to chose from now, arriving within seconds to my Kindle, I tend to pick and choose more, what books I actually read to the end. If it doesn't capture my attention in the first few taps of the screen, it's a goner. LOL
 
What a treat it is to find a truly engaging story, that is hard to put down and enjoyable right to the last page.
 
 I read Falling Star by Diana Dempsey in a couple of days. I had other things I should have been doing but I kept going back to find out what would happen next in the story.


From the Amazon product page:
 
About the author:
 
"Diana Dempsey traded in an Emmy-winning career in TV news to write fast, fun romantic fiction. Her novels have been called “almost impossible to put down” (Romance Reviews Today), “skillfully plotted and filled with realistic detail” (Library Journal), and “spicy, sexy, and sultry” (Booklist)."
 
 
About this story:
 
"Natalie Daniels’ husband just dumped her. Her boss is scheming to replace her. And she’s falling in love with her sexy Australian TV news agent – who’s about to propose to somebody else.

What’s a woman to do? Dig deep and show what she’s made of – which just might land her both the job and the man of her dreams."



When I read this book, I wasn't actually aware of the author's background in TV news. But the authenticity of that fast-paced, at times cutthroat work environment came through, page after page.
 
 
Falling Star is Diana Dempsey's debut novel and was nominated for a RITA award for “Best First Book” by the Romance Writers Association.
 
 
The story is fast-paced, with characters that come alive and make the reader want to succeed or go down hard! And with just enough details provided to set each scene but not over the top.

Natalie Daniels, the protagonist in the story is "the real deal". You want her to win, to get even, to conquer and overcome....and Natalie does not disappoint! 
 
I won't spoil the plot by saying too much. Get a copy and prepare to enjoy a great read. One of the best novels I've read in quite some time.
 
I just noted that this ebook is FREE today over at Amazon. 
Click now, I  don't know how long that offer will last. ;<)
 
I'm looking forward to reading more books by Diana Dempsey. She's written quite a few since Falling Star.
 
Overall rating for this book: Excellent. 5 out of 5

    1. You won't know how you managed without when you DO get one Jen. And I think you probably will want to get one eventually. I still love REAL books but I also love the convenience and speed of my Kindle. And reading on it is so relaxing too, not like some 'screens' that get to be hard on the eyes after a while. ;<)

  3. Sounds like a great book. Love to read on a Kindle too. For some reason, I read faster than with a paper book.

    1. Books ARE expensive, they take up space, they can be heavy to tote around...it is SO much cheaper to get books on an ereader. I would have never been able to buy all the books I've read since getting my Kindle, if I had to buy print books. Yes, there is the libraries and I love libraries and still use our local one a lot. But for new novels and so much more, an ereader pays for itself in short order. As I said above, when you do get one, you won't know how you managed without it. ;<)
