The Birthday List
Happily married to her college sweetheart, Poppy lived a blessed life with the husband of her dreams. Then everything changed. She is no longer a wife. She is no longer the envy of her single friends. Now, people look at her with pity as they whisper a single word behind her back.
Years after her husband’s tragic death, years of pain and sorrow and wishing for the life she’ll never get back, Poppy decides to finish Jamie’s birthday list. She’ll do the things he wanted to most. Because maybe, just maybe, if she can complete his list, she can start to live again.
Poppy expects going through the birthday list will be hard. She expects it to hurt. But what she doesn’t expect is Cole. Could the man who delivered the news of her husband’s death and shattered her heart be the one to help her put it back together again?
~ My Thoughts ~
The story of Cole, Jamie and Poppy is written with comfort and ease. The words wrap themselves around you like a warm blanket.
The characters are well rounded. They slowly reveal the vast amount of emotions they hold as they make their way into your heart.
The story line contains so many things. Life, loss, determination and love.
While at times The Birthday List brought memories of the book P.S. I Love You, the author added her own unique spin which enhanced the entire reading experience.
If you enjoy a story filled with compassion, hope, dealing with loss in various forms, and second chance romance, The Birthday List should be added to your to be read list.
I truly believe for those who love a good romance, reading this book will warm your soul.
