Brian Weller is a haunted man. It's been two years since the tragic accident that left his three-year-old son dead and his wife in an irreversible coma. A popular author of mega-selling thrillers, Brian's life has reached a crossroads: his new book is stalled, his wife's prognosis is dire, and he teeters on the brink of despair.

Everything changes the morning an e-mail arrives from Boston artist Joanna Richman. Her heartfelt note brings back all the poignant memories: the night their eyes met, the fiery passion of their short-lived affair, and the agonizing moment he was forced to leave Joanna forever. Now, fifteen years later, the guilt and anger threaten to overwhelm him. Vowing to make things right, Brian arranges a book-signing tour that will take him back to Boston. He is eager to see Joanna again, but remains unsure where their reunion will lead. One thing is certain: the forces that tore their love asunder willstop at nothing to keep them apart.

Filled with tender romance and taut suspense, A Note from an Old Acquaintance is an unforgettable story about fate, honor, and the power of true love.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book!! It grabbed a hold of me from the beginning and never let go. I fell in love with Brian and Joanna's story of how the met, what tore them apart, and how they met again. I hungrily read through 80% of this book in one sitting. Once I started reading, I just couldn't stop. I wanted to know how it ended and I wasn't let down.

Such a fantastic story!

The characters were well written and believable. I found myself feeling a wide range of emotions while reading this. Anger, passion, love, awe at the characters obvious talents, sadness, loss and many more. This was a heartfelt read that had me tearing up and smiling at the same time in more than one spot. I think a book that does that to you, it well worth the read and I will be recommending this book to anyone who asks.

This sounds pretty good. The cover seems a little weird for the story though.
