Holly and Gerry are the perfect couple: happy, playful and deeply in love. But life takes an unexpected turn when Gerry is diagnosed with a brain tumor. Only a few short months later he passes away and Holly is left alone, drowning in her grief.
A few months after her husband’s death, Holly receives a package in the mail loaded with letters from Gerry instructing her to perform a series of unexpected tasks. With each task and the help of her family and friends, Holly saves herself from her grief and finds joy in life again.
The premise for this book is so intriguing. It sounds like it will be a fun, endearing and touching journey. At least that is what I hoped. Sadly, I found more fun than anything else. The story is too superficial for the subject matter, the writing uninteresting and the characters silly. I hoped for much more depth from such a premise, for more tenderness in the letters and the subsequent events. But instead it was just a lot of goofy events and mishaps. Honestly, I only made it half-way through the book before I gave up on reading any more.
