Book Blurb: 

There were a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he’d never do: He’d never leave New York City, never give his heart away after barely surviving one failed marriage, and never become a parent.

Now Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, engaged to the love of his life, Lexie Darnell, and anticipating the start of their family. But just as everything seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, a mysterious email sets off a chain of events that will test the strength of Jeremy and Lexie’s love. And as they cope with the doubts, fears, and romance of the newlywed, Jeremy will discover an extraordinary truth: The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it,

Words That Touched My Heart ❤

And in that instant, while staring at his daughter through a thousand tears, he fell in love and wanted nothing more than to hold her and keep her safe forever.

Title: At First Sight is a suitable title for this story. To describe unconditional love and love at first sight.

Title Rating: 3.8/5

Characters: Jeremy: A writer, a son, a brother and a lover. He believed in many things but end up doing many that he never imagined such as leaving his city life behind and settle in a small town. He felt many emotions along with his journey and understood life is not fair but it tries to compensate.

Lexie: A library teacher in a small town who even after falling in love with Jeremy made it clear that she will never move to New York City. At the same time, she is the one who made sure Jeremy’s family is never left out of any big changes and decisions in their life.

Characters Rating:3.8/5

Review: The story continues from True Believer by Nicholas Sparks, when Jeremy decides to get engaged and move to Boone Creek from New York City. He left his family, friends, work and his life at the city and took a leap of faith. As he started to settle in this small town in North Carolina he finds it difficult to put his thoughts on paper because of which his work suffered. Lexie, the love of his life tried to support him as much as she can but nothing worked.

The story continues as he got a suspicious email which made him think all he knows and all that he don’t. It took a toll on his love life. The story continues as the emotions, trust, and betrayal come to play their role.

The story made you think how one emotion that can break you and tear you apart can easily be something that heals you and gives hope to a new life.

Story Rating: 4/5 

Appreciation: The emotions of a husband felt for his wife (who he barely knows but is deeply in love with) are expressed so deeply. The doubt, the fear of not knowing the whole truth and a fight between trust and betrayal is just breathtaking.

Let Downs: The novel is romantic but why there always has a pain along with it? For a change I would like – and they lived happily ever after.. But again that would be a fairytale…

Surprise Factor: Well, the tension built and the revelation of truth had kept me going.

Would I be reading more from Nicholas Sparks: Yes, I have read many books from Nicholas Sparks and every time when I thought no other book can move me like this one, he came up with another one just as good sometimes, even better than his previous one.
