From Chapters:
Jennifer returns to the resort village where she grew up to help a beloved relative—and ends up experiencing not one but two of the most amazing love stories she’s ever known.
The first is completely unexpected. In a series of letters that Jennifer finds, her relative reveals that she has concealed a huge secret for decades: Her great love is not the man she was married to for all those years. As Jennifer reads about this passionate partnership, she learns more about love’s imperatives and secrets than she ever dreamed possible.

And then comes the biggest surprise of all. At a time when she thought she could never love again, Jennifer lets her guard down for a moment—and is suddenly caught up in the greatest flight of exhilaration she’s ever known. But, just as suddenly, she learns that this new love comes with an unbearable cost. Jennifer doesn’t think she can survive the pain—but the letters she’s been reading make her think that love may help her find a way.

Jennifer's experienced a lot of loss in her life. Most recently, her husband passed away in a surfing accident while waiting for Jennifer to finish work and join him on vacation. When Jennifer gets a call that her grandmother Sam is in a coma, Jennifer doesn't know how much more she can take. She drives to Lake Geneva to be by her grandmother's bedside at the hospital, living in her house waiting for Sam to get better.

Jennifer finds a stack of letters from Sam saying that her life isn't what everyone thought it was. Turns out that Sam had a horrible marriage and a secret lover. As Jennifer learns about her grandmother's past, she meets Brendon who is also staying at Lake Geneva for the summer. Can Sam's letters help Jennifer move past her heartache? Will Sam recover and come out of a coma?

This is a simple but pleasing read and a good one for the summer. This is completely different from James Patterson's normal novels. I almost felt like his wife helped him out with the romance of the novel because the overall tone was quite feminine. Overall, an average book.

I'm taking this out to Lake Louise to put in welcome bags for my wedding.
