Fall In Love
When Kate Tanner witnesses the murder of her parents, the wealthy Virginia Sen. Murphy Tanner and his wife, Abigail, she knows she needs to disappear - and fast - until the killers are behind bars. So she dons what she thinks is a foolproof disguise - masculinity - calls herself Billy Ingram, and travels to the country to find work. It's her way of laying low until justice is served, but it isn't long before she's getting more than she bargained for. Now, on a North Dakota farm, this former city girl struggles to convince her employer, the handsome Chad Walker, she has what it takes to handle demanding farm chores.
Meanwhile, the men who killed her parents are searching for her, a woman named Lacy Montgomery is infatuated with her, and Kate's fallen in love with Mr. Then she's seen without her disguise - and the excuses start to really make things interesting. Can Kate survive long enough for the charade to reach a happy ending? Get A Copy. Paperback , pages. More Details Original Title. Virginia Historicals 1. Other Editions 8. Friend Reviews.

Showing Average rating 3. Rating details. More filters. Sort order. I will continue to read more by her. This one was just too much. There were lots of individual elements that I liked, but it just did not work. I could not suspend my disbelief enough for this heroine to not only play a male character for an extended period of time around everyone in the entire town but also a third character, another red headed female.
Plus, although I enjoyed some of the Christ redeeming elements to the story, I did not understand how Chad could be so unforgiving and hateful of his wife that died a year ago. Come on, forgive her already. She's dead. Jan 12, ShortyS rated it it was ok Shelves: hr-western , x-disguised-as-boy. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

It's just silly. I gave it 2 stars because it was also easy to read and i did so in one go. Some examples that let me shake my head: There are a lot of things that were just too convenient to be plausible. She suspects her parents were murdered because of 10 acres that her Father and the Senator were arguing over. When she is searching for evidence she finds th Sorry about my english.
When she is searching for evidence she finds the mines in just one day. Even if they are meant to be "top secret". And the ruby and diamond she take from the Senators mines. Were they just lying around? Her finding the mines wasn't even described. Like it was too insignificant and easy to write about. No one seems to notice that "Billy" and Kate are never seen together after she starts to be herself too. That would work for a day or if at least one of them was to live in the inn but not if both were expected to be in the same place for days or weeks.
And when Chad realized that he never saw Kate and Billy together he thinks that Billy fears that Kate would expose his secret if she were with him in public. What the hell is that? Why should she expose anything if they were out together but not if she was alone?

Also you would think to have a farm is the easiest thing in the world. Paint some sheds, put up a shelf, collect some eggs, feed the animals now and then and milk the cow. And all of that with three farmhands who won't work but get paid so where does the money come from? And I thought this Bible talk wasn't convincing either.
They didn't even go to church. They just talk about beeing religious now and then and Chad let his death wife do whatever she wants to him without doing anything against it. And Chad and Kate don't do more then kiss and dance before they married. They don't even think about more?
Come on, it's a romance novel, isn't it? Sorry, I'm not religious myself.

But even if i may find it annoying if it was authentic, here it just rings hollow I don't think it was very romantic. They meet - they fall in love - they are nice to each other - they just know that the other one loves them too - and then he asks her to marry him very casually and she says "Let me clean up and change.
I'll be back. Then we can go find the preacher! Oh wait, the autor puts some jealousy and insecurity before the wedding, very briefly.

She wonders if he finds her repulsive because he talks to other woman for five minutes. Also everyone but Chad was to be after girls to have as much "fun" as possible. But it was always like "Oh, i like you. Lets marry". Just like that. When Chris meet Lacy he isn't interested until he knows she is malicious. Then he kissed her to check if she was as sexually disinterested as her sister and then they were already planing there life after the wedding.
What annoyed me the most was that they are supposed to be 30 and 36 but they act like teens. All of them. All the time. There were other things that got on my nerves but those are the biggest one. View 1 comment. It is a very strange book, a dead woman is being portrayed as a saint in an almost creepy obsessive way by her family. Well there you go, this proves we can't judge a book by its cover!
Second review after finishing novel! Ok so I do feel bad for the 1 star rating I gave this book while I was still reading it. Sorry: After Chad realizes that Kate was also playing the character of her brother Billy, the story actually became better! This book was not a typical Ruth Ann Norton book.
I guess it was to be a Christian fiction book, because when she wanted someone to have a change of heart she just said: "They found Christ! I found it a very annoying book for being called a 'historical' novel. This author needs to do her research if she wants to write 'historical' and 'Christian' books.
The storyline was so farfetched I couldn't believe it. A lot of silliest going on with a lot of so This book was not a typical Ruth Ann Norton book. A lot of silliest going on with a lot of so called disguises. It became very annoying, to say the least.
