Falling by Jade Winters


Eons back there was a concept of pocket books. Simple but forgettable stories meant to appeal to the largest number of people. This is something that belongs to that genre. (There should be a term for this.)

Amelia works in a day job that she hates and designs clothes in her free time. She is a good, nay, great designer but suffers from serious self-worth issues. Her best friend Cecile fixes an interview for Amelia in the design house she (Cecile) works for – Styles. Styles is a hugely successful brand that any fledgling designer would be thrilled to work for. Unbeknownst to the world, Styles is floundering, practically on the edge of shutting down. The owner, Vogue, is putting everything on line to save her precious company. Vogue’s friends and partner, Bev, had passed off a student’s designs as her own and Vogue paid a million pounds to cover the controversy before it became public. Amelia’s designs seem to be the lifeline to rescue Vogue and Styles. Except that there is a dark force working tirelessly to destroy Vogue. A dark force that has made itself cosy right in Vogue’s inner circle.

There are a plethora of possibilities that could’ve made this book rise above being just adequate but it remains strictly in the ‘maybe-okay’ space. There are a lot of plot holes and inconsistencies (what is Cecile’s role in Styles? Why did she get Amelia an interview and then warn her off immediately? For all its success, a payout of a million pounds is enough to make Styles almost fold – aren’t top design houses much more solvent?...these are just a few questions that pop). The writing just skims the surface of everything including characters, characterisations, ideas and plot. Worse are mistakes like Melissa’s adoptive parents’ names just changing at will and incorrect language (for instance ‘trustworthy’ instead of ‘trusting’).

This is a book that doesn’t evoke strong enough negativity to DNF it but is eminently forgettable and leaves a regret of unrealised possibilities.
