Brian Weller is a haunted man. It's been two years since the tragic accident that left his three-year-old son dead and his wife in an irreversible coma. A popular author of mega-selling thrillers, Brian's life has reached a crossroads: his new book is stalled, his wife's prognosis is dire, and he teeters on the brink of despair.
Everything changes the morning an e-mail arrives from Boston artist Joanna Richman. Her heartfelt note brings back all the poignant memories: the night their eyes met, the fiery passion of their short-lived affair, and the agonizing moment he was forced to leave Joanna forever. Now, fifteen years later, the guilt and anger threaten to overwhelm him. Vowing to make things right, Brian arranges a book-signing tour that will take him back to Boston. He is eager to see Joanna again, but remains unsure where their reunion will lead. One thing is certain: the forces that tore their love asunder will stop at nothing to keep them apart.
Filled with tender romance and taut suspense, A Note from an Old Acquaintance is an unforgettable story about fate, honor, and the power of true love.
You all know that I'm a sucker for a good love story...and this one is definitely a good love story. Bill Walker weaves an excellent story with A Note from an Old Acquaintance. He takes the reader back on a journey through the past as we watch the romance of Brian and Joanna unfold.
The transitions to the past were clear and weren't jarring as I've found in some novels recently. The writing is excellent and carries the story along (it doesn't tend to stagnate or get lost within itself as sometimes happens with this genre).
The only problem I had with the book was that for me I didn't like the cover. I tend to 'judge a book by it's cover' and I think a lot of readers do too. I didn't find the cover art all that appealing, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But don't let the cover deter you from reading this excellent story, you'll be glad you read it!
