Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes a bittersweet romance about the power of love in the face of heartbreak and loss.

Brooke Turner has always had a complicated relationship with her father. But when his health takes a turn for the worse, she drops everything to care for him. He’s her dad, after all, and he needs her. What Brooke doesn’t anticipate is the unraveling of her long-term relationship and a cross-country move to San Diego’s Little Italy.

Luca D’Angelo is the oldest of three children and a single father to a young daughter. When his mother rents the top floor of their house to Brooke, he’s angry. Who is this beautiful stranger with no ties to the neighborhood? Can she be trusted in such close proximity to his family?

As Luca learns of Brooke’s difficult journey with her ailing father, his heart softens. And Brooke, who witnesses Luca’s struggle as a single parent, develops feelings for him, too. But when it all falls apart, will love heal their wounded hearts?

Critic reviews

“Sovari's command of the Italian language and expert vocal intonations transport the listener into the midst of a loving family of restaurateurs, providing an enjoyable listen.”Booklist

“With the type of hero every woman deserves in her corner and a heroine you’ll want to befriend for life, When It Falls Apart is a must-read. I have a feeling that whether this is your first Catherine Bybee book or if you’re a diehard fan, you’ll find yourself completely smitten with The D’Angelos.”Harlequin Junkie

“This book is as much women’s fiction as it is romance…It is superbly portrayed and achingly real.”—TJ Mackay, Publisher & Editor-in-chief at Ind’tale Magazine

engaging complicated cast. Delightful read.

Catherine Bybee develops a complicated cast of characters, each well developed who make an interesting mix. One almost feels the characters write the story as they come across as well developed.
Enough plot twists to keep me highly engaged despite the predictable romantic outcome.
Th audible performance really brings the story to life.
I highly recommend the kindle/audible combination.
