Peek Inside How to Fall

Julia Evans is tired of being a good girl and always doing what’s expected of her. What better way to break out of her box and put her own wants and needs first than buying a plane ticket to Brazil? For one week, she’s going to let go and be the kind of woman who’s willing to have a wickedly hot night with a sexy stranger.

2016 Holt Medallion Finalist for How to Fall

One week of adventure might just lead to love…

Julia Evans has always put others ahead of herself–her high school math students, her troubled best friend, and her ex. But with New Year’s approaching, she buys a round trip ticket to Brazil. For one week, she can put her needs first. She can meet a stranger in the hotel pool at midnight and dance all night on the beach.

Screenwriter Blake Williams has to keep moving before Oz’s latest scandal catches up to him. But the dark-haired beauty with a backpack and an adventurous streak is messing with his plans. He can’t seem to walk away from her. But secrets have a way of coming out, and when the week is up, Julia and Blake will have to decide if they’re jumping into the biggest adventure of all or playing it safe.

Every now and then, you pick up a book by a new author and something about it – the characters, the setting, the plot – whatever it is – grabs you and doesn’t let go. When this happens you know that you’ve hit book gold. That’s the way I felt within the first few pages of this story.

About the author

Rebecca Brooks

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new--and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn't know they'd been missing.
