A depressed English professor finds love in the most unlikely place in Stephanie Fournet's emotional debut novel, Fall Semester.

Despite his stunning good looks, Dr. Malcolm Vashal is perhaps the most detested professor on campus. A floundering career and the aftershocks of a painful divorce have left the thirty-four-year-old with more than a little self-loathing, which only grows when he meets Maren Gardner. 

The graduate student with the loyal heart and searching eyes is much too good for him. She is off-limits for more reasons than one, but Malcolm can't seem to resist her.
Maren is facing the greatest loss of her life, and her family needs her now more than ever. Between caring for them and building her future, Maren doesn't have time for a social life, much less a relationship, but she can't push a certain green-eyed professor from her mind. She sees in him a goodness that others don't, but that might not be enough.As the two discover each other, their blossoming friendship soon turns into something more, but self-doubts, family tragedy, and personal demons stand in their way.

Can they overcome these odds and share a love that each desperately needs? Or will the end of the semester find them heartbroken?

About the Author:

Stephanie Fournet writes every single day and misses her characters when their stories end--that's why you can find cameos of them in her other books. Check in on Malcolm and Maren in Stephanie's second book Legacy; catch a glimpse of Wes and Corinne in her third novel Butterfly Ginger, and if you want a peek of what's to come from her fourth book, pay close attention to the epilogue at the end of Nate and Blythe's story.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A novel about an affair between a student and a professor, and how both choose to cope with love and loss. At the start of Fournet’s debut novel, 34-year-old Malcolm Vashal, a professor of Central and South American literature at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, is morbidly depressed. He hasn’t written or published in years, his marriage to his wife, J.J., has recently ended, and he feels miserable teaching at the university. In fact, his depression has gotten so bad that he’s obtained a handgun and is considering suicide. Everything starts to change, however, when he meets 24-year-old Maren Gardner, an alluring new graduate student who’s transferred in from Denver in order to be closer to her dying father. It doesn’t take long before Malcolm and Maren realize that they have a crush on each other. Both carefully navigate how to handle their developing relationship, as well as how to balance it with the other happenings in their lives. Overall, this is a lovely read. Although it grapples with death, depression and heartbreak, it’s also a heartwarming, hopeful romantic story that highlights the unmistakable power of love. The author creates a vivid, believable environment, including very specific details about the university’s English department (Maren takes “St. Martin and MacIntosh’s poetry workshop, Russo’s transcendentalists class, and Dr. Sheridan’s Romantics seminar”), the people involved in it and the places they frequent. An often endearing love story, much like those in Hollywood’s best rom-coms.
