Really good book. The title throws you off, you think Sam is a lover/boyfriend etc. Nice fast read, a little romance, but not too gushy. Sweet.

It amazes me that the James Patterson can write such graphic stories as the Alex Cross series and also romance stories. I have read all of his books and couldn't put them down. "Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas" was the first book to make me cry in years. Because of this I was excited to read this book.

"Sam's Letters to Jennifer" is a great but predictable book. If you like romantic quick reads than this is the book for you. All of Patterson's books are fast paced and hard to put down. This is no exception...It will have you thinking about your own grandmother and the stories of her life.

James Patterson is a master! I don't read romances, but Sam's Letters to Jennifer and Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas were AWESOME!! (And this review is coming from a guy.)
I read all of Patterson's books and these two are definitely different from his usual string of murder mystery thrillers, but still of the highest quality!!
I absolutely recommend this book to anyone!! (And yes, it's OK for a guy to enjoy a love story!)
Definitely 5+ stars!!

Again, James Patterson doesn't fail us. His thrillers are easy-to-read and hard-to-put-down, and he keeps me happy with his romance novels too. I can generally read his books in a day or two (I hate to put them down!), and cried over this heartwarming story.

A very touching and powerful story about love and second chances. Sam's letters to Jennifer discloses some deep secrets and by example encourages Jennifer to give love and life a second chance. Furthermore, it captures the enduring bond between grandmother and granddaughter. It's a quick read but it evokes sentimentality that will pull at the strings of your heart. This tearjerker story shows that the only predictable thing about life is that it's never predictable, and that one should never truly give up hope.

If you're looking for typical James Patterson fare, keep looking. When I read this book I was amazed that it was written by the same James Patterson who writes the books of mystery, intrigue, murder, and crime... How someone can transition from that genre to this is mind boggling to me. He's truly just a gifted author to be able to write so well in both genres.

This is a quick read, and a really enjoyable story. Just be sure you have a box of tissues nearby! This is a story about love and loss... If you can get through this without feeling some tugs at your heartstrings, well then, I think just a tiny piece of your soul might be missing.

If you like this book, you'll like Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, also by Patterson. It's sort of like a Nicholas Sparks novel, only (in my own opinion) better written, (and I like a good Nicholas Sparks every so often).

You know, I just listed Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas and Sam's Letters to Jennifer on my PBS booklist, but I think I need to read then both again before someone requests them.

I was on page 32 I believe when I started reading this book yesterday at 3pm. At about 11:31pm last night I completed the book. I got teary eyed in spots and laughed many times throughout the book. I felt like I was right there with Jennifer and the other people in the book. I was there in the Lake swimming with them. I felt like I was part of this book. The book touched me! So much of this book hit home with me. It either was some how related or close to it. I could feel others pain and others love! What an inspiration and love story and a story of hope all rolled into one! I highly recommend this book. Read it from cover to cover in one sitting and you will NOT be disappointed!

Awesome story of family love and knowing your family. Sam is a grandmother who writes letters to her granddaughter Jennifer just before she goes into a coma. Sam's letters help Jennifer to understand not only her grandmother and her life better.. but come to some realizations of her own life and where it is going. Awesome read. If you enjoy any of James Patterson, this book is no different. Quick and easy reading. This particular book is hardcover, but that's fine.. it's one I have to share!

Melodramatic, cliched, impossibly perfect people living through beautiful tragedies. Not unaffecting, but too over the top for my tastes.

I don't think that I have read many of James Patterson's books so I am not sure if his writting style is the same through out his career but I thoroughly enjoyed the story but the short chapters and nonexistant imagery made me give this book a three out of five. It is a really quick read and a great story, just not my type of writing style. I prefer more substance to the surrounding environment that the characters move through. It was almost like the main character was explaining every move that she made. There was no break from the story to describe the scenery or emotional states of the characters. AT least not to the extent that I would expect from a writer with his reputation.

Unlike Patterson's Alex Cross thrillers, this sentimental tale does not translate well to audio. The plot twists seem all the more absurd when read aloud, and the audiobook's maudlin music, inserted during the story's poignant moments, is as distracting and disturbing as a TV laugh track. Jennifer, a newspaper columnist who's grieving the death of her husband, has more reason to mourn when her beloved grandmother, Sam, falls into a coma. Jennifer rushes to Sam's home in Lake Geneva, Wis., where she finds a packet of letters addressed to her. The letters detail her grandmother's life story, including an affair she had with a mysterious man. Jennifer takes comfort in the letters, and at the same time, embarks on her own romance with Brendan, an old friend.

It was such a wonderfully touching and endearing story. The summers up at the lake are so relatable to any reader in summers of their own.

A totally different book from what James Patterson usually writes. Could hardly put it down until I finished it.
reviewed Sam's Letters to Jennifer on
A desperate phone call sends Jennifer back to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin to the resort village where she grew up, to care for her grandmother Samantha. While she was alone in her house, Sam suffered a terrible fall and is currently comatose in the hospital. Returning to the place where she had spent so many happy summers, Jennifer has no idea that she will soon experience not one but two of the most extraordinary love stories she could ever know.

The first is completely unexpected. In a series of letters that Jennifer discovers which are addressed to her, Sam reveals a huge secret that she has kept concealed for decades: Her greatest love is not the man she was married to for all those years. As Jennifer reads about this passionate partnership, she learns more about love's imperatives and secrets than she ever dreamed possible.

And then comes the biggest surprise of all. At a time when she thought she could never - and would never - experience love again, Jennifer lets her guard down. In that one unguarded moment, Jennifer is swept up in the greatest, most amazing, most exhilarating and emotional flight she's ever known. But, just as suddenly, she learns that this new love comes with an almost unbearable cost. Jennifer doesn't think she can survive the pain - but reading her grandmother's letters to her, Jennifer begins to believe that love may help her find a way.

I haven't read that many books by James Patterson - only two so far - but I really am intrigued that he can write so well in such a variety of genres. I found this book to be absolutely delightful! It was emotionally poignant; a captivating love story - actually two separate love stories - beautifully intertwined. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and give it an A+!

Jennifer returns to the resort village where she grew up to help a beloved relative--and ends up experiencing not one but two of the most amazing love stories she's ever known.

The first is completely unexpected. In a series of letters that Jennifer finds, her relative reveals that she has concealed a huge secret for decades: Her great love is not the man she was married to for all those years. As Jennifer reads about this passionate partnership, she learns more about love's imperatives and secrets than she ever dreamed possible.

From the Publisher
Laced with mystery, Sam's Letters To Jennifer combines two unforgettable love stories in a novel that's absolutely impossible to put down.
Jennifer returns to the resort village where she grew up to help a beloved relative--and ends up experiencing not one but two of the most amazing love stories she's ever known.

The first is completely unexpected. In a series of letters that Jennifer finds, her relative reveals that she has concealed a huge secret for decades: Her great love is not the man she was married to for all those years. As Jennifer reads about this passionate partnership, she learns more about love's imperatives and secrets than she ever dreamed possible.

And then comes the biggest surprise of all. At a time when she thought she could never love again, Jennifer lets her guard down for a moment--and is suddenly caught up in the greatest flight of exhilaration she's ever known. But, just as suddenly, she learns that this new love comes with an unbearable cost. Jennifer doesn't think she can survive the pain--but the letters she's been reading make her think that love may help her find a way.
