Launch – Author Interview
What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?
I hope this book reminds readers that our pasts don’t have to define us. No matter how badly we’ve been hurt, no matter how long we’ve clung to false beliefs, we can choose to move forward and embrace love and light from this moment forward.
Among the Reads – Review
“While it would have been easy for the author to fall into the trap of giving easy answers and wiping away all the problems perfectly as they rode off into the sunset at the end, she didn’t. The resolution required compromise and while the conclusion was satisfactory, it did not end with everything perfect – making it more realistic and in my opinion, more enjoyable.
This sweet romance was just the right length and moved at just the right pace. . . . If you enjoy sweet romance, be sure to read Falling for the Innkeeper.”
Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review
“I love this story. It has situations good and bad that we all have to deal with in this life. I love the Inn and their little town on the cape. . . . I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy a good love story.”
Labor Not in Vain – Review
“This is a heartwarming read, Jonathan and Laura are characters to cheer for throughout. I enjoyed the beautiful setting, and how well they worked together as their friendship grew. There’s a lot to love about this book, with strong themes of faith and family, great character growth and interaction, as well as an absolutely adorable little girl. You won’t want to miss it!”
Christy’s Cozy Corners – Review
“Falling for the Innkeeper is an adorable story about finding love when you least expect it. It’s also about learning to compromise and give up what you thought you wanted for something even better. . . . I definitely think readers who enjoy inspirational love stories will be fans of Falling for the Innkeeper!”
I’m All About Books – Excerpt
Jonathan adjusted his tie and cuff links, the expensive ones he wore when he wanted to impress. Not that he expected a single mother to even notice his wardrobe. But it was like his battle armor. Look the part, play the part. Get. It. Done.
There were lights on inside the inn, which was a good sign. He left his suitcase in the car, took a deep breath, walked up the brick-lined path to the front door and knocked.

Britt Reads Fiction – Review
“Falling for the Innkeeper was such a good story! Laura and Jonathan felt like real people making their way through life, carrying burdens from their childhood that colored the way they viewed themselves and others. . . their journey was a joy to read about.
Hearts & Scribbles – Excerpt
Jonathan had always had this idea that if he could just reach that brass ring, if he could just grab it and hold on, that would be the thing that would make everything in his life work the way it was supposed to, the thing that would make everything okay.
But would it? Would it really?
Making partner at the law firm wouldn’t magically fix his father’s illness. Making partner wouldn’t change the fact that he’d been a scared, bullied kid. Making partner wouldn’t mean that his father, who’d gone missing when Jonathan was just seventeen, would ever come home.

“I really enjoyed this book! It honestly was like reading a Hallmark movie! 🥰 I enjoyed the sweetness of it all. I loved the charming town and characters. And the inspiring message throughout.”
Hallie Reads – Review
“As the pair does so, it is easy to fall in love with their story—and them as characters. I enjoyed getting to know Laura and Jonathan, their personalities and backstories, through Falling for the Innkeeper and seeing how they could move from enemies to something else. It is a delightful, fun story, and I now look forward to reading more from Meghann Whistler in the future.”
Tell Tale Book Reviews – Review
“Falling For The Innkeeper is a sweet Love Inspired romance. It has a charming setting, great characters, especially the adorable Yankee Doodle singing Emma, and a storyline that manages to be both convicting and entertaining. Meghann Whistler skillfully gets her readers thinking introspectively while delivering a sweetly romantic escape. . .”
Book Lover in Florida – Excerpt
Jonathan tried to go back to his own work, but he couldn’t focus. “Your ex. He’s not very involved?”
“More like he’s not involved at all. He hasn’t even met Emma in person, you know.”
“What?” He felt something hot and fierce tear through him, outraged on her behalf. “How is that even possible?”
Splashes of Joy – Review
“As the story unfolds, so do these characters, and Ms. Whistler weaves together a beautiful story with a wonderful ending. I enjoy this.book for what it is, very sweet romance! And if you like a good clean Romance, this is one you need on your to read list! You won’t put it down until you finish the last page!”
Reading Excursions – Excerpt
She was fleet-footed, practically skipping from rock to rock. Jonathan followed, a little less certain of the path but determined not to fall behind. The boulders were damp and sandy, dried barnacles peppering the sides. She stopped and looked at him over her shoulder. “And Carberry Hotels is one of your clients?”
She was beautiful. She was so beautiful. And underneath the teasing, sometimes tough-girl demeanor, she was sweet, too. Everyone they’d run into during their excursion into town last night had loved her. He couldn’t understand why men weren’t lining up around the block to sweep her off her feet. If he had time for a girlfriend, he’d absolutely be the first person in line.
“Connor Carberry is my friend,” he said. “This deal is like a test case. If it goes through, the whole hotel chain could become a client.”
“This book took my heart on so many twists and turns – but it was a wonderful ending. I am super excited to see more from this author. She has written amazing characters, a beautiful setting, and has crafted a flowing storyline.”
