THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ FOR ALL JAMES PATTERSON FANS. ONCE I STARTED TO READ I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN. THE TOPIC IS SOMETHING THAT MANY PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO BUT IT IS SUCH A TOUCHING STORY ON HOW TWO PEOPLE FALL IN LOVE.

What A Story!
Every Patterson fan should read this book. Such a great story, with some real life situations that we all face. Even the guys can relate to this one. Could hardly put it down until the ending.

A sweet book, although a little sappy and predictable. Although it's nice for things to end happily ever after, life's not always like that. I'm not a cynic, just a realist. A little too soap opera for my tastes, but okay if you just want to read a romance. Not a bad effort from a guy who usually writes thrillers.
Publishers Weekly, 2004-09-06 Unlike Patterson's Alex Cross thrillers, this sentimental tale does not translate well to audio. The plot twists seem all the more absurd when read aloud, and the audiobook's maudlin music, inserted during the story's poignant moments, is as distracting and disturbing as a TV laugh track. Jennifer, a newspaper columnist who's grieving the death of her husband, has more reason to mourn when her beloved grandmother, Sam, falls into a coma. Jennifer rushes to Sam's home in Lake Geneva, Wis., where she finds a packet of letters addressed to her. The letters detail her grandmother's life story, including an affair she had with a mysterious man. Jennifer takes comfort in the letters, and at the same time, embarks on her own romance with Brendan, an old friend. Heche's thin, mousy voice is perfect for the perpetually worried Jennifer, but she rarely varies her intonation, not even for Brendan's dialogue. Alexander does a better job as Sam, conveying the elderly woman's concern for Jennifer, but her performance isn't sufficient to elevate this flawed audiobook. Simultaneous release with the Little, Brown hardcover (Forecasts, June 7). (June) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Publishers Weekly, 2004-06-07 Though Patterson is best known for his Alex Cross thrillers, one of his biggest-selling titles has been Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas (2001), an affecting love story awash in tragedy and hope. This new, less powerful but compulsively readable novel is cut from the same sentimental cloth, with the narrative hook here being not diary entries but letters that an elderly woman writes to her beloved granddaughter. When Jennifer, a grieving widow and columnist for the Chicago Tribune, hears that her grandmother Samantha has fallen and is in a coma, she races to Sam's town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. At Sam's home on the shores of the lake, she finds a packet of letters addressed to her; their text, recapping Sam's life with an abusive husband but also with a mysterious lover she calls "Doc," occupies half the novel. In counterpart runs Jennifer's romance with a childhood friend, Brendan, she reunites with, only to learn that he is dying of brain cancer-a romance that allows her to heal her grief for her dead husband, Danny, who drowned the year before. The novel's structure works brilliantly, with Patterson as usual using brief chapters and simple prose to propel the reader onward; more thrust comes from the plot questions: Will Sam survive? Who is Doc? What will become of Jennifer and dying Brendan? The answers will leave readers satisfied but not as stirred as they were with Suzanne. This is a slighter tale, but also one that few if any will put down as Patterson again shows how it is done. (June 28) Forecast: The novel is a good bet to hit #1, but it may not stay there long given the continuing strength of The Da Vinci Code. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
