Quotes & Awards

  • “The novel’s structure works brilliantly, with Patterson..using brief chapters and simple prose to propel the reader onward! [A tale] that few if any will put down as Patterson again shows how it is done.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Anne Heche drives the emotion of this book, deftly delivering a roller coaster ride of plot twists and turns. Two romances wind through the chapters, each as important as the other, and though they bounce back and forth, the shifts are smooth and seamlessly presented...Heche is delightfully whimsical...but when her voice falters with emotion, listeners will grab for their tissues.”

    AudioFile

  • “After the success of Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas, it should surprise no one that Patterson is trying his hand at another romantic tale, and this one is every bit as enjoyable as its predecessor...Patterson is infamous for surprising his readers...the ending to this novel is unexpected, touching, and satisfying. Another winner from Patterson.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 5/20/2011

    " This book wasn't what I expected it to be but it was still a great read. Very short and packed with wonderful writing. Made me cry a couple of times. I think this is a good choice if you want an easy read in a waiting room at a dr's office or before picking up your kids from school. "
