Happily married to her college sweetheart, Poppy lived a blessed life with the husband of her dreams. Then everything changed. She is no longer a wife. She is no longer the envy of her single friends. Now, people look at her with pity as they whisper a single word behind her back.
Years after her husband’s tragic death, years of pain and sorrow and wishing for the life she’ll never get back, Poppy decides to finish Jamie’s birthday list. She’ll do the things he wanted to most. Because maybe, just maybe, if she can complete his list, she can start to live again.
Poppy expects going through the birthday list will be hard. She expects it to hurt. But what she doesn’t expect is Cole. Could the man who delivered the news of her husband’s death and shattered her heart be the one to help her put it back together again?

The Birthday List by Devney Perry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Definitely one of the best books you’ll read this year!
I don’t know how to put in words just how wonderful this book is. The Birthday List is beautiful, emotional and one of those books that leaves you with a book hangover. I can’t get it out of my mind. My emotions were all over the place. These characters, I feel like I know them. Like I was put in the story with them. I felt all their emotions, I laughed with them and yes I cried with them.
Poppy and Cole are the type of characters that you don’t forget. Their love was built after a tragedy and together they grow stronger. Minute by minute.....
If you read only one book this year this is the one to read. I can’t express how moving and beautiful this book is, you just need to read it for yourself.
