Perfect for fans of Patricia Highsmith and Gillian Flynn, this sexy and seductive debut novel asks: How can you find out that the person you love is a killer...and continue to love him anyway?
Ellie Larrabee's life is perfect. She's thriving at work, living in a fabulous apartment, and engaged to the man of her dreams. To all appearances, Ellie and Rob Beauman are a golden couple - blessed with good looks, success, and romantic chemistry that's off the charts. Surely their future together promises nothing but happiness.
But on what should be the most wonderful day of her life, moments after saying "I do", a shocking secret threatens to shatter Ellie's happily ever after. She learns that the man she just married and loves with all her heart hides a dark past beneath his charismatic exterior. And the more harrowing truth she uncovers, the deeper Ellie is swept into a vortex of betrayal and uncertainty from which she may never escape.
On the island paradise of St. Lucia, Ellie isn't basking in honeymoon splendor - she's grappling with the chilling realities of her violently derailed life: Rob has blood on his hands and some very dangerous people on his trail, and only Ellie stands between him and the lethal destiny he's facing. Rob never dreamed that Ellie would be dragged into the deadly world he's trapped in - or used as a pawn against him. And Ellie could never have imagined how far she'd be forced to go to save the man she loves.

"What a terrific novel! Just Fall arrived in the mail this morning and I read the book in one sitting, which I haven't done for years. Nina Sadowsky's premise is original, her voice is clear, her storytelling skills are remarkable, and her pacing is perfect." (Sue Grafton)
"Character-rich and compulsively readable, Just Fall is a marvelous surprise. Exploring the universal need for family and human connection, and the costs incurred when those bonds are severed, Just Fall takes the reader on a wild ride through the psyches of two damaged people who hope to find redemption in each other. The writing is lush, the insights sharp. This novel is a winner." (Diane Keaton)
"A chilling story exploring the fine lines between love and hate, good and evil, Just Fall is a wild ride of unnerving twists and turns, right up to the last page." (Andrea Kane, New York Times best-selling author of The Silence That Speaks)
I loved this book in so many levels. Normally jumping around in time confuses me but this book unfolds seamlessly. Very exciting. Couldn't put it down.
A little too much skipping back and forth in time make this a difficult book to follow in audible form. I had to repeatedly stop, back up and replay to be sure I had understood where each event fell in the story line.
