Helpful Score: 3
I found this to be an excellent and quick read. It contained a complex story that kept the reader guessing until the end. It pulled your heart in different directions as you tried to figure out how you felt about each of the characters. If you liked "Sundays at Tiffanys" and "Sam's Letters to Jennifer", this will be another book you will enjoy. However, if you haven't, you can make this book your first and become hooked on James Patterson. I've recently only began to read James Patterson and am impressed with the variety of books that he writes. If you haven't tried him out, you should give his books a try.

I love all of James Pattersons books. Interesting to read a romance by one of my favorite mystery writers! As always a quick reading story, his never quite last long enough:)

I wasn't sure how I'd like this book since I'm a mystery reader primarily. I loved it though. It was a bit of a tearjerker, one of the few that has actually managed to make me cry. And it still has some twists in it like a typical Patterson.

A small book with a few twists. Not told chronologically, however. If you don't like flashbacks and telling-inside out, this would probably drive you nuts.

pure schmaltz.
overly dramatic- quite poorly written- read.
I was disappointed as I generally like James Patterson. I guess he should stick to suspense novels.

I really, really enjoyed this book. It was very emotional. I was literally sobbing by the end.

I felt I knew most of the characters in this book by the end, proving Patterson is a wonderful writer. I connected to Suzanne and Matt and their love for each other and for their son.

I didn't quite seem to know what to think of Katie. I didn't feel like I knew enough about her to feel bad for her when she got dumped by Matt. I was constantly comparing her (Matt's girlfriend) to Suzanne (Matt's wife) and sometimes it was difficult to really feel bad for Katie, dispite the constant interjections about her life and her feelings in the story. I guess I was a little upset the she though Matt was cheating on his wife with her. She knew he had a wife and she still got with him.

In the end I guess Katie was redeemed, however I still felt uneasy with her. The story makes you learn to love Matt, but Katie is a different story, I guess that's why I only gave it four stars!

This book is emotional and really expresses the love of most of the characters. It's a quick read so there's no reason not to read it! :)

I read this book cover to cover in one sitting (with a few interruptions from my kids). It is a beautifully sad story about love and loss. I was sobbing by the end of the book. It's a very quick and worth while read.

I loved this book. It is very heart wrenching, and has a real surprise ending. It's a great read, a bit different from James Patterson's mystery/thriller, but different in a good way!

I picked this up to start reading after I had finished another book. I ended up reading it all in the same night! I adored this book. You feel sorry for Katie, you love Suzanne, you adore Nicholas, you wonder how Matt could do this? Then you burst into tears when all the pieces fall in to place. Quite an emotional journey. Keep a box of tissues handy towards the end.

I had read Sunday's at Tiffany's (which was my first by this author) and was not sure if I wouuld be interested in any other works of his since I didn't care for that book.. Boy am I glad I decided to give this one a try! I loved this book and it moved me to tears on occassion! This one is surely a keeper!!

I read this book in one evening, just couldn't put it down. Very easy to read. Heart-breaking story with a fairytale ending. I love the setting.. Martha's Vineyard. If you liked "The Notebook", then you will really like Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas.

Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas is reminiscent of a Nicholas Sparks love story. Readers who love this type of tale should immediately read this book. Die-hard Patterson fans should be cautioned of the abrupt switch in gears. It's my opinion that this syrupy two-hanky tale is best left to hopeless romantics.

So sweet- I guessed most of the ending because I had recently read "The Mountain Between Us" which was so, so good. It's a great book to remind us how fragile life can be. I'd recommend this one to anyone.

It's about a man who falls in love with a woman. He leaves her a note and then leaves. The note is about a tragedy in his past. Something he was not able to tell her face to face. It is a beautiful story.
