I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Juliet Shakespeare is done with love. With a growing floristry business and an adorable daughter to raise, life after separating from her husband is complicated enough – the last thing she needs is a man.

But when handsome single father, Ryan Sutherland, arrives in town, everything changes. As much as she tries to distract herself, Juliet can’t help but be drawn to the easy-going Romeo next door and the way he makes her feel.

Photographer Ryan is only back in his hometown for a few months so there’s no point falling for someone he’ll just have to say goodbye to. But he didn’t account for Juliet – the intriguing and beautiful, red-haired woman next door. And in her, he might just have found everything he ever wanted . . .

A heartwarming Shakespeare Sisters romance from the bestselling author of Fix You.

By Virtue Fall by Carrie Elks

Say it ain’t so! I can hardly believe this series is complete. With By Virtue Fall all four of the Shakespeare sisters have had their story told and I for one have loved meeting this dynamic family. In By Virtue Fall we finally get middle sister Juliet’s story. I am sad to see the series end, but getting to know the sisters has been a wonderful journey. Each have travelled their own unique paths and as one of four daughters myself I could highly relate to the intricacies of sisterly relationships.

In the previous three books we’ve learned a little bit about Juliet Marshall and her daughter Poppy. Although it appears Juliet is the more domestic of the sisters it’s long been hinted that Juliet’s marriage is in trouble and she is terribly unhappy. Domestic Bliss is not something she can relate to. In fact, in this chapter of the sisters stories, Juliet is separated and trying to co-parent with a soon to be ex who is rather entitled, annoyingly so, and who likes to try to control Juliet, despite their imminent divorce. But Juliet’s about to discover her voice and an undeniable attraction to her new neighbor Ryan Sutherland.

To me, this is a second chance romance because in Ryan Juliet gets her second chance at happiness and a family. I love how the story unfolds and how Juliet blossoms under Ryan’s watchful eye. The path is rocky as the small town of Shaw Haven includes family members that complicate life for both of them, but Juliet inspires as she learns to stand on her own while finding the ability to trust her heart.

This is such and enjoyable series and I urge readers of contemporary romance, lovers of Shakespeare, and proponents of second chances to get to know the Shakespeare sisters! 5 Stars!
