I want to start by first saying Teresa thank you so much for trusting your newest baby to your readers! Nothing I have read from you has disappointed me yet and I don’t believe it ever could!!!
The first part of this blog will not talk about any spoilers it will just be my take on the book with out giving away the details! I will put SPOILER ALERT! When I am about to talk about some of my favorite parts of the book!!!
Suicide Note is a book about two people who do not realize who badly they need someone else in their lives and how they both need to let go and live a little!!!!!
Shane and Jenn suck you into their lives, because of the pain that they are suffering from broken hearts, loss and jealousy something that we all go through everyday. At one point in our lives we all feel like we have nothing or no one that can help us or that maybe we do not really want them too. When these two people meet you can feel their connection right away, it is like something clicks into place for both of them! I cried and laughed during this book. My heart sank at certain times and I wasn’t sure if I could keep reading!!! Goosebumps ran over my arms several times! This is real life this is what happens! Life is not all romance or car chases with big explosions, sex all the time no matter how good, vampires, and witches!! It is cheating and thing that we are unprepared for but that you would never want to change! You have to let the past become the past; you can either face it and move or dwell!!! These two people have made the choice to move on and become who they never knew they wanted to be because of each other!
It is an amazing love story about real life! An American hero who is lonely and sad! A girl who has always been invisible and had almost given up!!! They are made for each other and they just didn’t know it, they make you feel their pain, fears, sadness, happiness and everything in between. You have those books that you know you could read over and over and this is now added on that list for me!
I am so beyond thankful to be one of the first people to get to read this book!! I know that on when this book comes out on the 15th of March it will go flying off the shelves as it should!
Poor Jenn when this book first starts I truly believe that she is going to harm herself in some way. To have your soon to be husband cheat on you with none other than your sister!!!! I can’t even think to feel the pain that this would cause. My sister is my best friend and I could never believe that we would do that to each other.
Shane is an American hero who has been so wrong and to tell you the truth I know people who have had this happen. They are away fighting for our freedom and to have the person they love the most is back home, but not truly waiting for them!!!
These are some of my favorite and least favorite parts (by that I mean parts that mean so much to the book but made me cry)
The part where Shane thought he would not see his dog again! Broke my heart a little I love my animals so much! I could not imagine seeing them everyday! just like my kids!
When Shane starts talking about losing his mom I can not pretend to understand the pain of this but I have lost people in tragic ways and that will always stay with you! This is the first part that I cried about!
The guy that Jenn’s mother set her up with is TOTALLY creepy! My goodness I would have bite him to if he tired to shove his tongue down my throat after I ordering food for me!!! GRRRRr
When Jenn and Shane first meet! You can almost feel that he feels something for her but he doesn’t know what it is!!!
When Shane found the letter my heart stopped! WOW WOW WOW!! Bit I knew right away it was the piece of paper Jenn was looking for when she forgot to mail the letter for her boss out!!!!!!
I love love love that she is like “I work here. We met yesterday” totally thinking this guy was jerk!!! When he was the only one who remembered that is was her birthday!!!
Than they spend almost her whole birthday together horsing back riding, getting cake, buying a coat for him and talking! After he found her on “her” bridge, where all she wanted to do was read a book. ( I know this feeling very well)
After they go to NC to “steal” his dog back, and they both see that neither of them is what they thought! It was not indeed a Suicide Note but a goodbye letter. That someone who was so fed up with her life she thought they only way to become who she truly was; was to run away and start over.
When they go to her sisters’ rehearsal dinner together it is amazing! I am so happy that someone finally stands up for her. Thomas is a jerk and Shane should have kept knocking him in the face; until that ass couldn’t see!!! I loved that her Dad gives Shane a nod of the head when he does it!
I think their first time could not have been better for the two of them! It was perfect all of their secrets, and demons were laid on the table and they both knew what they were getting into!!! What a great and horrible way to say goodbye!!!!
How he hid the CD in her dresser drawer and had May tell her where to look after he left and he made sure that Jenn would have a date for her sisters wedding something she never wanted to go to!!!
When Thomas touches her and talks about their sex life at his wedding to her sister made my skin crawl! We all know there are men like that out there but gross!!!! I hope I never know “that” guy.
When May and Jenn go to the bar, you have to feel bad for May when the bartender knows who her husband is! But can still give wonderful advice to Jenn about never giving up and that you have to work through your problems.
SHE IS HAVING A BABY!! I knew it when it was 5 in the morning and she was throwing up! On the way to the hospital she is feeling so much better you just know! Than you think oh wait how many times did they do it in that one day and you never hear anything about using any type of protection!!! I was not sure if I was happy or sad for them!!!
I think it is one of the best things Shane could have done to plan popping the question to her over skype while his cousins helped him out!!! OMG so great!!!
And than its a boy! A little baby Shane! How great!
Than a bomb hits! to get an email that tells you nothing has to be heart breaking enough but to be pregnant and not know. I cannot even image what I would do. I like that her family shows up to help comfort her even though they have never really been there for her so it made me wonder!!! I think they were trying to be nice which I get but hmmmmm.
When they find out it Owens is awful you know Shane will never get over the feeling that he did not do his best. All the thoughts that are going through his head must be killing hiim slowly. Than to have to come and bury his friend is even worse.
When Chelsea calls and makes it seem like she has been there for Shane when he is pulling away for Jenn must hurt her completely. When she compares Gail (her sister) and Chelsea I almost felt silly for not seeing it before. They truly are and she could not see or be with the man she loved and did not really have anyone to talk to!
I love that she is always eating! Even at 2 in the morning I did that when I was preggers too made me feel a little better!!! LOL
When she made the trip to see him when he got home I knew something was going to happen! He did not seem happy to see her at all and than his Dad is there! I think that is so sweet that his dad shows up to talk to him and see him home from war. But I do believe that he should have told Jenn the truth instead of pushing her away!! I would have left too, gone to my hotel and cried! I don’t think I would have opened my door, but would have laughed when he was able to get in!!
Than they get married which is the best! Just them no fuse no muse, just two people in love!!!
Gail leaves Thomas thank goodness!!!!!!!!!!! Gail and Jenn become closer she rents Jenn’s apartment and moves on with her life!
The best Christmas present for them was to have a baby. It may not be in the best for their son Owen when he grows up but I think with parents like his he will never feel upset about anything in his life!!!
Thanks for reading! i hope you all enjoy the book as much I did!!!
