Billionaires, politicians, and celebrities flock to Heaven Falls, the most elite health spa in the world, to be pampered and rejuvenated. But they also come for another reason: “You CAN buy love,” states the glossy Heaven Falls brochure. “Don’t let anyone say that you can’t.” Heaven Falls Spa offers something unique: the thrill of a romantic interlude with a perfect stranger – no strings attached. Sounds pretty good? Single mother Tess thinks so, and she falls in love. But Heaven Falls is not heaven, and when terror strikes, she has no one to turn to for help except for the man who betrayed her.

“Wonderfully Satisfying”

~ Heloise Riddell


“Couldn’t put it down!”

“The suspense was great. I just had to keep reading to find out what was going on and why the family was acting strange. I found myself saying “just one more chapter” but ended up reading for hours. You definitely need to start this book when you actually have time to read because you won’t be able to put it down. I could never have guessed how the story was going to unfold. I was truly left surprised….I can honestly say that reading this book was one thrilling ride. A page-turner that kept me reading for hours at a time! I finished this book in less than two days, that’s how amazing it was…This is my first time reading a book by the lovely Winslow Eliot and it sure won’t be my last.”

“A gripping, contemporary rags-to-riches novel”

Winslow Eliot’s new novel, Heaven Falls, is a gripping, contemporary rags-to-riches novel, part romance, part mystery, part family saga, that kept me turning the pages until the end.  Eliot’s prose is carefully crafted – descriptive, balanced, and subtle – and faithfully captures the seductive tensions and the emotional turmoil of high-society life fully and completely realized.  This is a story you will wish you had lived!  This is a novel you will need to share with your friends!

“A Wild Ride!”

“I’m not overly excited about reading romance stories, but this book took so many twists and turns it became more of a mystery novel to me. Who is the mysterious Ari, and what are his reasons for hovering over Freya and Tess? What is the story behind Philip, the scarred, wheelchair-confined brother who wants to marry Tess? Mystery abounds, and doesn’t give an inch till later after murder attempts, kidnapping across the globe and deceitful goings on in the family.  I give this book a resounding endorsement, definitely a wild ride.”

Just finished reading Heaven Falls by Winslow Eliot – a brilliant book, couldn’t put it down … suspense, intrigue, fast pace, what more could you want! The little stories and facts about the essential oils were fab too, although I was so involved in the story that at times I didn’t read them till I’d finished the whole book.

Amazon Review 5 Stars



Heaven Falls was a wonderful leap into the lives and intrigue of many generations of characters.  I was engrossed!  I loved the locations you went to and your fluid descriptions of the places as well as the people, and the weaving together of their story.  And, of course, the tension of the romance! So fun.

~ Ginny Guenette

“This book was fantastic!!!”

Heaven Falls is a thrilling adventure imbued with romance and mystery. It has a strong plot and a climactic ending with many mysteries unfolding right up to the end. The protagonist Tess is strong-willed and likable, and one of those characters that stays with you long after you finish the book. The exotic health resort setting makes the story glamorous and intriguing, a definite winner for any fan of romantic thrillers. I couldn't stop reading once I'd started. Winslow Eliot is truly the voice of romance novels. The offbeat courtship that develops between Tess and Jason ignites a passionate romance, and keeps you turning pages right up to the climactic, exciting end. There is something in this book for everyone, and I highly recommend it.

“Compelling and satisfying”

“I couldn’t put it down - compelling and satisfying!”

“An entertaining story can also be a wonderful learning experience”

As a student of Geek and Roman ancient history, I especially enjoyed the short paragraphs at the beginning of each chapter. Each chapter header focused on a specific herb; its history and its primary uses over the centuries as an essential oil. I went so far as to bookmark each chapter for future reference when writing my next novel; proving that an entertaining story can also be a wonderful learning experience.
As to Winslow Eliot's writing style...it is a mixture of: part Mary Higgins Clark, in that both authors weave a web of intrigue within their spellbinding thrillers; part Virginia Woolf, in sentence structure and character development; with a dash of Danielle Steel, delving into the dregs of human nature.
I highly recommend, "Heaven Falls.” It is one of the few novels that I started reading the moment I awoke, and could not fall asleep that evening until the last page was read.

“A story not to be missed”

Heaven Falls is a mystery and a love story, both told against a backdrop of opulence and exclusivity, with a plot that has more twists and turns than a roller coaster. Winslow Eliot has put together a wonderful cast of characters who play their parts well; some we love, and some we love to hate, making Heaven Falls a story you should not miss. Once you check in to Heaven Falls...you may never want to check out...!
