From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bybee comes a bittersweet romance about the power of love in the face of heartbreak and loss.

Brooke Turner has always had a complicated relationship with her father. But when his health takes a turn for the worse, she drops everything to care for him. He's her dad, after all, and he needs her. What Brooke doesn't anticipate is the unraveling of her long-term relationship and a cross-country move to San Diego's Little Italy.

Luca D'Angelo is the oldest of three children and a single father to a young daughter. When his mother rents the top floor of their house to Brooke, he's angry. Who is this beautiful stranger with no ties to the neighborhood? Can she be trusted in such close proximity to his family?

As Luca learns of Brooke's difficult journey with her ailing father, his heart softens. And Brooke, who witnesses Luca's struggle as a single parent, develops feelings for him, too. But when it all falls apart, will love heal their wounded hearts?

Review quote

"With the type of hero every woman deserves in her corner and a heroine you'll want to befriend for life, When It Falls Apart is a must-read. I have a feeling that whether this is your first Catherine Bybee book or if you're a diehard fan, you'll find yourself completely smitten with The D'Angelos." -Harlequin Junkie

"This book is as much women's fiction as it is romance...It is superbly portrayed and achingly real." -TJ Mackay, Publisher & Editor-in-chief at Ind'tale Magazine

"There are only a handful of authors that I can always count on to deliver emotionally satisfying stories that beg to be read in a single sitting, and Catherine Bybee is one of those rare authors for me. Her knack for creating vivid, endearing characters always shines in her stories, and this is especially true of her newest release." -Natasha is a Book Junkie

"When It Falls Apart is so emotional, but the author tempers that with lightness and humor and plenty of Oh So Swoony Romance!!!" -Books and Tequila

"The D'Angelos are family goals and they remind me of my family! And this story made me miss Italy and made me want a huge bowl of pasta ... It's a feel good, fun, and sexy story." -Two Book Pushers
