The first Sparks book that I read was A walk to remember. I read that my freshman year in highschool, then never really thought about reading any of his other works. Then one day while on vacation with some family I stumbled across a discount book store. We were in there forever, and I happened across a hardback copy of this and remembered reading A walk to remember all those years ago. So I bought it on a whim, and am I ever glad that I did. This one and A Bend in the road have become two of my favorite Nicholas Sparks books. I am a guy so I don't read much romance, but his books draw you in and make you connect with the characters, without being to sappy or cheesy or smutty like those women's romance books they basically stamp out on a conveyor belt. I encourage anyone who has not read it or any Nicholas Sparks book to give this one a try. It's short and engrossing and rather enjoyable.

Well, this one didn't make me totally cry (eyes welled up a bit, but I kept the tears from falling), but it certainly did make my heart ache! Nicholas Sparks really knows how to tug at those heart strings! It is a quick read and even though you could figure out the ending within the first few chapters, Sparks still makes you wonder how exactly it would get there. It is a love story about two people, Paul and Adrienne, who meet at a bed and breakfast (the only guests for a long weekend during a storm). Neither of them knew what was missing in their lives until they found each other. All in all, it was a beautiful story.

I didn't like this one at all. Very sappy and the characters were annoying to me.
