    1. ::: FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED ::: 4.5 STARS!! ::: From the moment I heard about this book, I wanted to read it. From the minute I started it, I couldn't put it down. This beautiful story broke my heart, then healed it, and made me truly believe in second chances.The story is about a woman whose beloved husband Grady, love of her life, and father to their four young children dies of cancer leaving her alone to cope with her overwhelming grief and to single-handedly hold their family together. Six mo [...]

    2. 4 to 4.5 “Learning To Live Again” Stars!“We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, 'Blessed are they that mourn,' and I accept it. I've got nothing that I hadn't bargained for. Of course it is different when the thing happens to oneself, not to others, and in reality, not imagination.” ~C.S. Lewis, A Grief ObservedThe Five Stages of Falling in Love by Rachel Higginson is a sorrow-filled tale about a woman who loses the love of her life, her partner, t [...]

    3. 4.5 Stars!!“The Five Stages of Falling in Love” is a gut wrenching story about loss, grief, second chances at love and life and learning to move on. I loved this story, it moved me to tears; it’s a sad, almost depressing story, but it's also a story that made me smile. The story is beautifully written in a very respectful way and from the emotional prologue I knew this story it will be different and so special to me. “Not every story has a happy ending. Some only hold a happy beginning. [...]

    4. 4.5 StarsElizabeth and Grady Carlson had it all. A beautiful home, a family business, four gorgeous children and a love that some may deem is only found in story books. The first chapter hits hard as Elizabeth and the children lose Grady to an illness and their grief is insurmountable. “This was our grief and pain at our deepest. This was our hearts and souls scraped raw. This was desperation so intense I felt it in my bones, in the broken places of my soul. And that my children shared this gr [...]

    5. "Sometimes love didn’t make sense. And that was okay. It was far better to know love and accept love than try to understand it."I have read several stories about two people falling in love even if one or at times, both are suffering from a fatal disease no other than cancer. This isn’t one of those books.This is about Liz who in her early 30’s has ever known and loved only one man, Grady, a very wonderful man who is everything to her and her four children but who has to permanently leave h [...]

    6. An emotional story about loss, grief, and moving on. This story broke my heart, and delicately put it back together. And Ben was simply perfection. I will try to review properly soon - the weekends are always too busy! x

    7. This one popped up on my feed today and the reviews sort of intrigued me. I wasn't looking for a sad, depressing read and to be honest it wasn't all THAT sad and depressing. Yes, there are some sad times, yes, it's heartbreaking what happens but it did not overshadow the book for me. The writing was poetic and I loved taking the journey with Liz and Ben. Now, you know me, I love my alpha asshole males BUT you know, sometimes the NICE guy deserves a chance. And Ben was nice, really nice. I loved [...]

    8. This book hasn’t been sitting on my TBR for too long. A little bit ago I read my sweet friend Mo's review and the other day I was looking for something a little different. This book fit my mood perfectly.I expected some sadness and heartbreak and hoped for happiness. I got all that and so much more. The 5 Stages of Falling in Lovewas an emotional read for me. But it was also a heartwarming and tender story too.My tears started early on. The Prologue broke my heart. Within it we get Elizabeth a [...]

    9. 3 stars Firstly, this cover is gorgeous! Unfortunately it was just too sad and depressing for my taste. Liz was a mess for the majority of the book and I could feel the struggle she was going through. Ben was so patient and understanding. I liked how their relationship developed over time. It was ok just not the type of book I enjoy.Recommend if you enjoy books withEmotions and the feelsDealing with griefRealistic relationshipSweet guyARC provided by NetGalley

    10. The Five Stages of Falling in Love is an incredible story about a woman’s tragic loss and learning to live and love again. The story is told so realistically, breaking me down then building me up over and over again. I loved every heart wrenching moment of it!Beginning with the prologue, I just knew this book was going to hurt. We are introduced to Liz and her dying husband, Grady in one of their last moments together sharing words of love, promises, and a final dance. In the span of just a fe [...]

    11. This was such a beautiful book. I loved the writing and the hero, Ben, had me swooning from beginning to end! But man it absolutely gutted me. I had to read this in spurts to keep from getting completely pulled under by grief. The author did such a great job of portraying the grief of losing your soulmate. I pray to God I never experience this because even just reading about it slayed me--I couldn't imagine going through it. Even simple things become difficult for Liz has she tries to adjust to [...]

    12. I forgot to mark I read this and I had so much to say how everything went downhill for me, but it has been almost a month so I will keep this short.I had 5 stages while reading this book:1. ohoho love the beginning I have a feeling I will really like this because I <3 sad books and Ben I think I love you.2. like it3. meh you're ok4. why am I still reading this and when did it become so boring and frustrating?!?! stop crying whenever you open your mouth woman!5. thank God, I finally finished i [...]

    13. 3.5 StarsOverall Opinion:I starting this wanting to have a good cry, and it did the trick. I wouldn't say that I ugly cried or sobbed or anything, but it tapped into my emotions for sure. I think it might've hit home a little more because I have four children and they are all ~2 years apart, and I know what that craziness is like -- but there is no way I could imagine how hard it would be to lose my husband!! I would definitely want a Ben in my life! He was a perfect H in my opinion, and he made [...]

    14. 4.5 Stars!"Not every story has a happy ending. Some only hold a happy beginning."Oh Wow! What a heart wrenching story. You definitely need a box of tissues while reading this book. I must be a masochist because I knew this one was going to hurt, but I had to read it. The writing was so beautiful and the story told in such a way that I found myself slipping into the heroine's shoes which added to the hurt sometimes. I found myself not wanting to put this book down, but at times I had to, just for [...]

    15. It starts out strong and understandably the emotions are high, but by Chapter 8 I realised that being in Elizabeth's head is giving me a migraine; therefore, I'm putting this on hold- for now.

    16. What a powerful, touching, gut-wrenching story about love, grief, hope and growth.I'm not sure two hands would be enough to count the amount of times I broke out in tears reading this book, but despite all the sadness, there was so much warmth and hopefulness in Higginson's writing that made the heavy subject easier to bear.I loved that the author did not belittle the love that Liz and Grady had in order to make the relationship between her and Ben seem more "special".When Grady held my hand, it [...]

    17. ★★ 4.5 stars ★★Rachel is such an amazing storyteller! Even though this one was sad from the start, I could feel the loss, the struggle, and the hopefulness throughout the story. I can't imagine losing my husband at such a young age and I can't imagine what it would be like for the next man to come in and try to fill that hole in your heart. I cried and I laughed and I fell a little more in love with Rachel's writing by reading this book!(full review to come)

    18. 10 amazing stars! First of all, I’d like to point out what this book isn’t. If you are looking for a broody, super possessive and jealous alpha male. This is not for you. If you are looking for a steamy read, this is not for you as well. But if you are looking for an evocative story with writing that is so profound in its simplicity, pick this book up. This a bit more chicklit than straight romance because this is a tale of a woman, Liz who had lost the great love of her life. Not only that, [...]

    19. 4.5 starsThis is a heartachingly beautiful story of a woman who has lost the love of her life and been left alone to raise their four young children. And in heartbreaking, sweet, and sometimes funny, detail, we get to journey with her through her grief, and her slow recovery as she learns to live again.The prologue of this book introduces us to Liz and Grady together, and just from those few short pages, the incredible love between them is evident, and I was in tears as they said their final goo [...]

    20. ***SIN SPOILERS***La reseña completa en el blog ;)virivillarreal/2017/03Tenía muchísimas ganas de leer este libro, pero al mismo tiempo un miedo tremendo a que no fuera lo que esperaba. Lo ha sido. En algunas partes me recordó a esa sensación que tuve cuando leí "El aire que respira" porque este también es un libro conmovedor, de esos que te sueltan la lagrima a cada rato, emotivo y sentimental, es una historia llena de dolor, pero sobre todo de AMOR.No sé dónde leí que cuando se hací [...]

    21. A touching, heartbreaking and overall emotionally charged, beautifully written story about loss and finding out how to live life after death.Elizabeth Carlson is choking with grief after losing her best friend, her soul mate, her husband and father of her four children and can’t find a way to put her fractured heart back together, much less her life. Six months have past, her kids are rebelling, her house is crumbling down and her new neighbor, Ben Tyler, is annoyingly helpful and assertive. H [...]

    22. 4.5 Life After Death Stars!"Not every story has a happy ending. Some only hold a happy beginning. This is my story. I’d already met my soul mate, fallen in love with him and lived our happily ever after. This story is not about me falling in love. This story is about me learning to live again after love left my life."This book was just what I needed! Do you ever get into a certain type of mood where you just want to lose yourself in an emotional story and cry? LOL!! Well, that's exactly the ki [...]

    23. Sweet, sweet touching little read here. Lovely cast of characters especially the four kiddos. Wonderful story of how a young mother was able to find the love of her life, twice. Even though Ben was too humanly perfect, I still adored him

    24. 4.5 Stars for Ben & Liz.★★★★✰My Casting:BenElizabethThis was such a beautiful, romantic, heart-wrenching standalone. I wasn't sure I was going to love this book, because we already know from the blurb that our protagonist, Liz, is consumed with grief, after her husband passed and childhood sweetheart passed away from cancer, leaving her to raise their four children. So, I knew this was going to break my heart. And it really did. I loved Grady, even though we only actually get a few [...]

    25. Holy to the heartbreak.The prologue begins and IMMEDIATELY my heart is broken. This book kind of does a reverse on you. Most books start with the story line and carry you through with the characters, you grow with them and learn to love them and all their quirks, and then something tragic or awful happens that breaks our heart. This book just works in reverse and shows us the opposite ways that people not only put themselves back together, but also fall apart. And Liz did fall apart. And it was [...]

    27. The Five Stages of Falling in Love begins with a gut-wrenching prologue where we meet and lose Grady, Liz’s husband who lost his battle with cancer. Like for reals, a few pages in and Ms. Higginson is already squeezing your heart and making you question your sanity for thinking this was a good idea to start reading. But boy does she pull off one of the most beautiful stories of falling in love while your heart heals and continues to hold in all the love for the one man who was once your whole [...]

    28. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★5 BEING FOUND AGAIN STARS"Not every story has a happy ending. Some only hold a happy beginning. This is my story."This book! This book had me a hot mess. The author had a tight grip on my emotions from the prologue and I didn't stop crying until I finished the book. My emotions were all over the place, from understanding to feelings of despair, from sadness to happiness. I was on an emotional roller coaster. The writing in this book is phenomenal and took me by complete surpri [...]

    29. 4 "Miss you more than that much." StarsMy first Rachel Higginson story and certainly not my last - The Five Stages of Falling in Love hails as a charming story about devastating loss, heartbreak, and learning to love all over again. Written solely from the point of view of Liz Carlson - broken widow, relatable mother of four - we feel a connection to her life almost immediately. As the book opens we understand her once in a lifetime love and how much she's lost. We see her barely getting through [...]

    30. Liz Carlson has lost Grady, her husband of eight years to the Big C. Ben Tyler moves in next door to her house six months after Grady dies. This is her journey back to life when she believes love has left it.The Good, The Bad and Everything In BetweenTissues, keep lots of tissues nearby: The prologue gripped me and set the tone for this read. It had me sniffling and teary eyed within minutes. I was thrown off balance, and my heart clenched in remembered pain. If you’ve ever had a loved one die [...]
