Goodreads - Karla Swept Away By Romance Blog
I felt the story was rather unique, the dialogue was fun, and the chemistry between Jenn and Shane was believable and although the steam factor was on the light side, the desire and passion they had for one another was strong. I didn�t need heated love scenes to know that these two had it bad for each other and I felt that they were meant to be. There is also heartbreak when the reality of war hits home, and the character�s struggle with what happens is well-written and was unbelie

This book was good. Not great, but good. The things I loved about it: 1. The romance between Shane and Jenn seemed genuine and moved at a realistic pace for a military couple. As a military wife, whether good or bad, dating relationships move quickly for the most part. Duty stations change or the military calls and they will ONLY move married couples. My husband and I married after 8 months of dating, but that was because we had a deployment in the way. It would have been sooner. So that was VERY realistic. I really liked how they were friends FIRST and then hooked up. 2. I really like when books have dual first person points of view. I really liked looking into Shane's head. Although I felt his point of view was largely feminine, I don't really mind :-). I read romance for the mush. 3. I liked that they both had crappy exes. It made it realistic. Although Jenn's was on another level...still, we all have crappy past relationships that we have hang ups about. And with him being in the military, you really needed someone to have left him because its too hard. Because IT IS hard and not every woman/man can deal with the separation. The fact that she moved on to a new man before she could even talk to him about it is VERY true and happens daily, sadly. Ok. What I didn't like: 1. There were some editing errors. Not enough to make me throw my kindle, but when there is a there/their/they're or a your/you're mistake, it makes my brain hurt. There were some errors. I would edit ANY book for FREE just to prevent this type of thing from happening. I hate PAYING for a book, a craft of written word, only for it to have errors throughout. 2. The beginning was slow. I more appreciated it in the middle, but the first 15% of the book ALMOST made me put it down. 3. While I loved the military aspect of the novel (being married to the military), I find it highly suspicious that he doesn't have any serious PTSD issues from his traumatic experiences. They hint at nightmares, but that is the extent of it. Especially the event towards the end...he won't talk about it. I am disappointed that this wasn't even addressed. This man would have serious issues that would need to be addressed by a counselor. I was really disappointed. I feel like the book Just Remember to Breathe by Charles Sheehan-Miles did a better job of looking into the mind of a war-torn young man. Would I recommend it? Yes. Overall, it was good. Not great, but good.

I just finished Suicide Note and it is def. one of my top 5 favorite books. I am married to a man in the US Army so I know about the struggles during deployments and the anxiety that comes with not hearing from your him for days at a time. I also have seen first hand some of my husbands friends' being cheated on or recieving the dreadful "dear john" letters because their wife's or gf's couldnt handle being apart. This book very clearly shows the difficulty one goes through when trying to persue a relationships with someone half way across the world. It also shows how difficult it is for these guys to start dating again after they have already been burned once before. I would recomment this book to everyone. The love story in this book is also just so heart melting. The way both characters have to pick the pieces up out of their lives and move on to start something new. They have to trust each other with their already broken hearts and learn to love again. It just made the story so much better because they both had crappy ex's. I also like how the story was in both of their POV's. It was nice to see how they were both doing personally and not just one of the other. I think Teresa Mummert did a great job writing hti sone. I have read her other book White Trash Beautiful, and they were both written with such detail and grace It just flowed. Almost like I was experienceing everyhting first hand. I can not wait to see what else Teresa comes out with next. She is definately one of my top 5 favorite authors.

Wow. This book was wow. I was actually surprised at how good Suicide Note was. I think it had to do with the disclaimer. Yeah, it’s great to know that the book has a happily ever after (and I definitely wanted one!), but I guess I assumed it wouldn’t be done as nicely as it was. That’s what I get for assuming. I’m thoroughly impressed with Suicide Note. I devoured Suicide Note. I smiled, I laughed, and I cried (the book hits close to home in a few places). The ending was great and I really enjoyed it. The only thing that I had any issue with was the chapters were labeled as dates. It confused me a little at first, but it wasn’t that a big deal at all. It didn’t matter much as it was easy to tell what was present day and what was in the past. *** I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for a review. Thank you! ***

Usually if a book doesn't "grab me" in the first few pages or I have a hard time following it, I can't finish it. This book alternates the POV between the main characters which doesn't normally bother me. This one also had dates at the beginning of the chapters with which character the POV was from. It threw me off at first. However, I stuck with it and within the first couple of chapters I was "hooked". I am a fan of books that have different POVs. It really helps you understand what each character is thinking/feeling throughout the story. So many times when I read a book, I am left wondering what another character thought/felt about everything. If you read this book, you will definitely smile, laugh, and cry. I don't want to say anything else about the storyline because I don't want to spoil it, but I would definitely recommend this book!

"I couldn't just walk away" what I loved about this book was the underlying thought that people are generally good and that there are people that still care about others whether a friend or a stranger. I loved how Shane spent his time teaching Jenn to embrace life and live fully. I think that the best friendships and the best relationships give us the courage to be proud of who we are and Jenn and Shane gave that to each other. I don't know much about military but I liked how Teresa Mummert portrayed the military characters and events in this book. It was respectful and real and gave me a glimpse into a world I know little about. It was a powerful story and left my heart happy.

Just finished Teresa Mummert's Suicide Note, though I wished it was longer and more in depth I really enjoyed the story and the characters. It was nice to get a glimpse into the lives of those in the military and see a little of the stress and heartache and heartbreak that they go through. I absolutely LOVE Teresa Mummert & her brilliant mind.

This book was long awaited for me and many others that follow Therea on Facebook and various other platorms. I have to say, it was well worth the wait! I felt the beginning was a little slow and that it seemed to mirror many other love stories that I had seen before. However, as I continued the story, it simply got better and better! My eyes teared up (in a good way) about half way through and I never recovered after that! I finished the book, blubbering like a fool, and nearly woke my husband who was sound asleep (since it was 3 AM and I couldn't put the book down!) I have read many books that bring up a lot of emotion, some sad, some funny, some lovey dovey. The Suicide Note was probably one of the best "lovey dovey" books that I have read, right down to the last sentence (you will understand what I mean by that as soon as you finish the book!!) Bravo Teresa, you knocked this one out of the park for sure!

I finished this book last night and could not put it down. Wow! This story had me on the edge of my seat and at times in tears. It was so refreashing to read a story I can seriously relate to on a few different levels. A very recommended read! Thank you so much for this book.

This is the second book by Author Teresa Mummert that I've had the pleasure to read. I really enjoyed this story. She has a great writing style and I'm addicted to reading her books. Her stories draw you in from the beginning and keep your attention until the very end. I loved both Jenn & Shane. I thought they were good for each other and good together. The attraction between the two of them was apparent from the beginning. Even though they didn't set out to develop more than just a friendship in the beginning I was glad things progressed in that direction for them. The secondary characters were all very interesting. In the beginning I didn't care for Jenn's sister Gail, but eventually I came to have a change of heart. The sexual content is adult mainstream in nature. It's not overly explicit. I will say that the hero and heroine have unprotected sex. I'm not really a fan of characters having unprotected sex, but I do realize that certain things happen for the sake of the story. Overall, I loved Suicide Note. It's an emotional read at time, but worth any tears you may shed while reading it.

This is a hard review for me to write. I liked Suicide Note but I didn't love it. I can't even really explain why I didn't love it. Honestly, I'm afraid that within a few weeks I won't remember much of what happened. I don't mean to sound harsh or even be overly critical of this book, just being honest.  The worst part is that there is absolutely nothing wrong with this book. Really. I just wasn't able to connect with any of the characters emotionally. I have been in love with New Adult novels this year (including a few of Mummert's other novels) and was really excited to read this one. The plot is definitely original especially in the New Adult category. The writing was good and I was interested in what was going on I just never got emotional about anything even during the scenes when I should have. If you have been following my blog for any length of time you know I get emotional pretty easily. I wonder if part of the problem for me was that the characters were a little too perfect?  I really hope that if this book sounds good to you that you will still give it a try despite my lukewarm feelings.

This story is told from Dual POV's (Jenn & Shane). Jenn lives in Maine & works for an advertising firm. Her & her fiancee recently broke up & she now has to watch her sister plan her own wedding. Shane is a soldier fighting in Kuwait. He finds out while deployed that his fiancee has run off & married another man. Both are grieving and don't believe they'll be able to love again. Jenn works for Shane's cousin and they meet while he is on leave. Shane believes that he has come across Jenn's suicide note  & feels the need to keep an eye on her to make sure she is ok. They start to spend time together, but can they trust each other to let the other one into their heart? This is a beautiful story about love, loss & new beginnings. It's a terrific book and is a MUST read.  -You never truly understand what you are missing until you have it in your grasp & push it away.

This is a story about love healing all wounds and where just a tad bit of trust goes a long way! Suicide Note is one of those stories that will stay with you forever long after you have read it it will be in your mind. I picked up the book at 11:00 am yesterday and out it down at 9:00 pm. I could not no that is not true I would not put it down. Once I started reading I was so engrossed in it I laughed and I cried and I yelled at one point because one character well more than one character got on my nerves. I will say this if anyone family or friend ever tried to do to me what was done to Jenn I would kick their ass hands down. No if and or buts but I would beat the hell out of them and then never ever speak to them again. Jenn is working her ideal job and living her life the way she wants to. After being engaged to a guy for two years their relationship ended because he was a douche and what he did is unthinkable. Thomas broke Jenn's heart and stomped all over it for good measure but she was slowly trying to regain some semblance of life. At work she pretended everything was okay because she wanted to move on and just get things out of her head. That is until she met her bosses cousin Shane. Shane is in the Army and he loves what he does but he is married to his job and it cost him his relationship with his fiance. She took and left him and married someone else while he was overseas in Iraq. Shane is devastated but he realizes that he was married to his job and it never would have worked out. So on his two week leave Shane decides he will go see his cousin in Maine and spend some time with his family. Only when he goes to Maine he gets more than he bargains for when he meets Jenn. When the story unfolds you will be caught up in a world win story of lies, secrets, and past hurts. You will see what it is like to be betrayed by the one person you love and the healing of a broken heart and broken family. Sometimes in life we get choices but we don't get to chose who we love and when we love and where we love. Learning to let go of the past hurts and fears is hard but the reward is worth it!

This book gets a huge five stars!!! The characters are believable and relate-able, the story line doesn't let you go, and the ending seriously made me tear up. I dont know if it's just the genre I've been reading or what but the last few books have made me cry.  Shane is an army guy who gets his heartbroken while he's overseas. Jenn has worked hard to take care of everyone and is suffering one blow to her self esteem after another. Each have their own pasts that contribute to who they are today. Shane comes to Maine on leave to prevent having to see his ex, Jenn is celebrating her birthday alone because no one in her family will remember. The only one who remembers is Shane who she met the day before. Suicide Note is a story portraying their journey on Shane's saving Jenn, but really just finding out he's the one who needs saving. I seriously loved this book and will prolly read it a couple more times over the next few months.

Amazing, beautiful and heartbreaking and I was so afraid it would have and ending that left me in tears! And it did, but they were from happiness rather than the heartbreak I was expecting. Fantastic book!

I was really excited about the premise and characters and was into Suicide Note when I first started reading it. The book trailer was an important part for me, actually, as it helped me picture Shane and Jenn. There was a sweetness to their love story and a sense of fate that brought them together. I loved the idea of their deep commitment to one another and making it through despite the odds. There were moments that touched me deeply (no spoilers!) and made me cry and a few that I really wanted more from. For me, I had a challenge fully connecting to the story due to the change from 1st person to 3rd person within sentences. I did review an ARC and I would anticipate those were changed before the release date. ARC provided for an honest review.
