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.

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.

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!!

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!

I have read several of Patterson's books that are filled with suspense and action so I was very surprised by this book. This book touched me. It had many interesting characters. I found this book a real pleasure to read.

A very surprising book from James Patterson. I listened to this on CD and it was WONDERFUL. I think I like Patterson's love stories better than his crime stories.

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.

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.

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.
