Where Petals Fall by Melissa Foster – Book Tour Review and Giveaway!


On the surface Junie Olson’s life looks idyllic, from her handsome husband and beautiful daughter to her successful business, the bakery she’d always dreamed of opening. But in the past few months her world has slowly unraveled. Her precocious child is withdrawing, showing unexplainable signs of emotional regression, a condition that frays the bonds of Junie’s once impenetrable marriage. When her father dies suddenly of a heart attack, Junie packs up her daughter and goes home to help her mother. Her homecoming stirs up memories of the nightmare she thought she had put behind her, the disappearance of her childhood friend, Ellen. Haunted by recurring memories of what happened on that fateful day, Junie must gather the courage to revisit her past and untangle the secrets surrounding her missing friend, and the trauma that has caused her little girl to climb back into herself. As the pieces come together on the event that shook her small town, and at the risk of losing everyone she loves, Junie will question everything she thought she could rely on and everyone she thought she knew.

WHERE PETALS FALL is a gripping and emotional novel with an undercurrent of suspense, featuring a determined mother whose world slowly comes apart around her. Readers will root for Junie as they follow her transition into an indomitable heroine who must reconcile what she discovers about her husband and family’s tragic past, and find a way to put the pieces of her family back together and carry on.

My Thoughts

Well there was no question as to whether I would read this stunning novel. First, it is from Melissa Foster, and second, the storyline intrigued me. I mean, Junie seemingly has a life any woman would want. A home, child, husband and a long dreamt of business. As with any story, something always happen and takes a turn for the worst. Junie’s daughter has developed a strange withdrawn behavior that will test Junie and her marriage. A trip back home to help Junie’s mother after her father passes leads her down the path of memories that she must visit to overcome the troubles of the present. These memories of the dissapearance of a friend when Junie was just a young girl will bring out truths that have been kept from her. Truths even from those close to her.

Melissa Foster has once again enveloped me in a mysterious and exciting world she has created. I would have to compare her writing to an Angler Fisherman… She whips that bait out there, you bite, and she reels you in! You don’t even know your hooked til you are completly in her hands!
