Giveaway, Review & Tour : Suicide Note by Teresa Mummert
New York Times and USA TodayBestselling Novel. Sometimes in life it feels like everything that can go wrong does, but everything happens for a reason. A relationship crumbles so someone else can mend the pieces of your broken heart. A change of plans can lead you to something you didn’t even know you were missing. You help others and discover that it was you who needed to be helped all along.
Jenn’s life is nothing as she had imagined it would be. She is twenty-something with a failing career and her love life has officially ended with an ultimate act of betrayal. She is ready to throw away her dreams when a chance run-in with a soldier, dealing with his own misfortunes, alters her course and changes her perspective on life.
Do you believe in fate? The kind that will place you right where you are supposed to be at the very moment you are supposed to be there? I bet you will be after reading Suicide Note. Because I have never read a book that proves the "everything happens for a reason" theory more.
Jenn and Shane have both had their hearts broken recently by the very people they once believed they would be spending the rest of their lives with. Neither of them are looking for anything. But fate throws them together through a chance encounter and they quickly become friends.
While this book is light on the hot factor, it more then makes up for it in other areas. The friendship that slowly develops between Shane and Jenn is beautiful. They both provide something that never knew they were looking for. You almost see the connection between them before they do. It was inevitable but perfect.
The only issue I had was Shane not telling Jenn he would be heading back to war at the end of his time in Maine. He allowed her to believe he was would be returning to NC. I believe all relationships are built on honesty. But I did understand why he chose not to tell her. And the ending seemed a bit abrupt to me. An epilogue would have been nice to show where they were maybe a year out. But that is just my personal opinion.
Overall, this was a great book. Like I said light on the smexy. But it more then makes up for it with the growing friendship and attraction. And there is an HEA, even though I would have preferred a little more.
I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.
