First, have to start off by telling you that Suicide Note is one of the most AMAZING novels I have ever read!!! I’m a HUGE fan of Teresa Mummert’s novels, I have read and loved them all, but Suicide Note is completely different from anything else I have ever read by Teresa Mummert and OMG, it is BRILLIANT!! I could totally see this one being made into a movie!! I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Suicide Note since I finished it last night. This novel hit me right in the heart, in a good way (I did not UGLY cry). It completely consumed me! It was an absolutely beautiful love story that I couldn’t put down.
Jenn is so lonely in life. The only thing she has going for her is that she’s trying to climb the corporate ladder in the company that she works for. She is an absolutely lovely character that I just wanted to hug and love. Shane is the strong, handsome soldier headed home on leave but not really wanting to go home. Not sure of where he fits in anymore. Both characters have been dealt a crappy hand in life. Fate brings them together but who will be the one to save whom? The connection felt between these characters was so strong and real. The secondary characters in this novel were a huge part of the story and equally as brilliantly written, the story would not have been the same with out them.
Suicide Note is a novel I will never forget, it has completely consumed my heart! I don’t think I will look at another soldier or their families the same way ever again. The emotion I felt reading this novel was, at times, raw and gut wrenching. I was completely gutted and then put back together. If you are looking for a read that will instantly hook you and touch your heart, that will have you on the edge of your seat wanting more and at the end of it all leave you speechless because you can’t believe you read something so incredibly AMAZING???? Make sure that Suicide Note is your next read! N. 5/5
