A riveting story of working through grief

This is a book I couldn't put down. It's tender, thoughtful, with well developed characters. And it's well read. If you're looking for the kind of story with suspense and action, this isn't a good choice. It's the story of a young man living after his wife's death, trying to survive and then to make sense of conflicting emotions. People are not cartoons and many of them are unpredictable. A refreshing experience.

Very sweet book.. enjoyed it

Not a murder book. I love all the other series. But this was about the changes and attitude adjustments in a life.
