    When life gives you lemons.

    I am torn between giving this 2.5 or 3 stars...so I will go with 2.5 based on the following. The story starts off with two soul mates who have fallen in love and against all odds with college and long distance, they get married. Liz and Matt have a special bond like no other because they have spent twelve years together and no each other like the back of their hands. After they marry, Liz and Matt buy their first house and find out that they are expecting a baby (Maddy). The perfect life comes tumbling down within 24 hours. Maddy is born and Liz dies of complications. What is a man suppose to do? Climb under a rock? Leave this earth? Or become the best Dad that he can.

    It is a really great to read how Matt stepped up but here comes some issues. The swearing killed me - yes you are pissed but do you have to swear during the eulogy? If my husband did that,I would come back and haunt him. The writing was okay but I do give him credit because the author wrote the book as a memory of his wife and he said that he isn't a writer. Lastly, it just dragged in parts. I am not in his shoes so I don't know how to live after I lost my significant other. With that said, I had to skim a lot of the last part of the book.

    To actually live Matt, you have to focus on the future and the life that you are giving Maddy. If it is hard to live in that house, sell it. If it is hard for you to live in LA without a natural support system, move back home. You can't live in the past when you have a little daughter to take care of. Good luck!
