'I left you something on the nightstand,' she said.
'You did? What is it?'
'Just turn over and look,' she pleaded.
He turned over to look, hesitantly, not wanting to look away from her. She always seemed to disappear every time he looked away. A manila envelope lay atop the white rustic nightstand and the word 'Ryan' that was penned across the front was beckoning him. He glared at the envelope for just a moment before turning back to her. But she was gone.
As Ryan Boone struggles to come to grips with not being able to keep a promise he made to his dying wife, Larkin's Letters propels readers into the mind of Ryan as he struggles with frequent visits from her ghost and a series of letters she leaves behind. Ryan worked hard to become one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors, but no matter how busy or famous he became, he always remained loyal to his childhood best friend, Larkin James. When Larkin is diagnosed with leukemia, Ryan sacrifices his career to be by her side and in turn realizes how much he had always loved her. Throughout Larkin's sickness, Ryan promised that he wouldn't let her die alone. But we learn that not all of our promises are within our control
I don't usually read romance books with this type of story line but when I received the request to read it I thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did. It's still not my favorite story line but I did enjoy it and found it to be well written and touching. You really feel for Ryan and what he's going through. You will run through all the gambit of emotions as you read this. For those who love to read a book that grabs you by the heart you'll be happy about this one. Lakin's Letters in out on June 25th. Happy reading!
