Remember When is one of those books that stay with you for a long while after reading it. I sat for a while after reading it, thinking about Jessica and Todd. Their love story was beautiful and sad to read. This is a story that will make you cry. It is also a story that showcases that not all relationships are perfect and it takes work to keep up one. Remember When has a very simple plot. Jessica and Todd are taking the back roads home from a friend’s wedding on a snowy winter night. There is a very bad accident in which the truck they are driving in ends up down a ditch and wedged between two trees. Jessica and Todd are sure that they will die before being rescued. It is there where they begin talking about how they met and the joys/sorrow that has left a mark upon their marriage. I connected with Jessica. I could see so much of myself in her it wasn’t even funny. We both are quirky, do I dare say nerdy (and that isn’t a bad thing) women who have overcome a lot in their lives. We both found good men who we have had super highs, rock-bottom lows and everything between. I loved her optimism when they were trapped in the truck. Most of all, her love of Todd shone through the pages. Todd did annoy me at the beginning of the book. I thought he was a little too flip about Jessica’s driving. But after the accident, my annoyance faded. He loved Jessica unconditionally. Sure, he made mistakes but those mistakes made him human. After the accident, his first concern was for Jessica’s well-being. Not his own even though he was injured. I had tears in my eyes during those scenes because I was sure something was going to happen to him. Remember When is a romance with a small part of mystery in it. I say mystery because you do not know what happens to them until almost the end of the book. There is no sex in this book, which I am glad about. I liked that the author chose not to include anything sexual. I also liked that she chose to show the deep emotional connection that Jessica and Todd have instead. Listen, sex is great and I like it in most books. But there are some books that don’t need it. Remember When is one of those books. The only complaint that I have is that the ending and epilogue seemed a little rushed. Other than that, I loved the book. Like I mentioned above, the ending and the epilogue was a little rushed. There was a mystical angle thrown in that threw me for a loop when it was revealed. I did think that the epilogue was very sweet. Actually, a little bittersweet. If you read the book, you will understand why. 4 stars My Summary of Remember When: I loved Remember When. I was moved to tears many times during the book. It had an engaging plotline with characters that you will come to care for. Definitely a book that I will read again and again. **I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it**

Review I’m not even sure where to start with this book. It has been a while since a book literally took my heart and twisted it so much that I wasn’t sure I had anything left to give by the end of the book. Oh and that ending wow… Jessica and Todd like many married couples think they have all the time in the world to do everything they want to. However we never really know, will today be the day. The day that we don’t get to finish what we started. While Jessica and Todd realize they may or not be rescued they decide to relive some of their favorite memories. Some of these memories are sweet and some not so sweet. I really enjoyed the aspect of being with the couple as they are now and how they were as a new couple. It really added quite a new twist on a woman’s fiction book. I liked how Jessica and Todd had to be strong for each other in different ways in this book. While you see that Todd was Jessica’s rock a lot in the book you also look back and see that Jessica was Todd’s anchor. The flashbacks to what situation they are in now are seamless. I just fell in love with these characters and the love they have for each other. I enjoyed how corky they were, I loved that they were hermits, that they had inside jokes. Everything about this book was perfection…Be prepared when reading you may need tissues. It’s so nice to read a book where you instantly connect with the characters. I could place hubby and I right into the characters shoes. We always say Remember When? Some of our best stories start from “Remember When” which makes this book connect with me so much more. There is a dog named Henry in this book who is to be exactly like the author’s dog Henry. I have met the real life Henry twice now and he is a doll baby!! Not only does this author have an amazing dog, 5 super duper cool cats.. she has a weekly FB live video on Thursdays at 7pm. Her husband Chad joins her on this weekly videos where they talk about how hard it is to adult and whatever else might have happened during the week. Usually their videos have me laughing really hard, and they are super interactive when you comment.

Remember When is a story of a tragedy that turns into a revival of memories good and bad from the past lives of Jessica and Todd. While possible living their last days, Jessica and Todd relive many scenes from their life. This is a true test of their love and devotion for each other. Also, reading this story makes you want to become more aware of survival skills. Loved the suspense in this novel. Henry the Mastiff also appears in every book from this author. Loved it!!
