BITTERSWEET ROMANCE. Suicide Note is the perfect example of a sweet, romantic, lighthearted story that will leave you sighing happily after finishing it. This was my first book by Teresa Mummert and I can already say it won't be my last.

I had never read any of Teresa Mummert’s books before I picked up Suicide Note. I have to say that’s about to change. This book was beautifully written and now I plan on now going on a Teresa Mummert reading binge! I love when a book that’s getting lots of buzz actually lives up to expectation. There’s nothing worse than reading something and thinking “okay, I don’t get it!! Why is everyone raving over this?” I can honestly tell you that I fell in love with these two charac

“You were the light when my entire world was dark. You gave me a reason to keep going when all I wanted to do was give up.”



Jenn's life was never easy and her sister with Thomas where there to make it more difficult.
I hated her sister. She treated Jenn with the most awful way.

Shayne was a soldier who didnt have an easy life either.
His father had abandoned him and his family so he had to become the male of the house at an early age.

4 Stars! Crazy set of circumstances bring two broken-hearted people together and I loved it!!

Considering the title of this book, even with the disclaimer, I wasn’t quite sure how I would feel about it. Well, feel I did, and it was all good.

Told from alternating first person points-of-view, this is the journey of two jilted lovers, Jenn and Shane who, by chance, are brought together. They form a friendship and eventually realize that something more is evolv

When it’s not bad, it’s good.

Suicide Note was not a bad book. It had a unique plot, decent dialogue, and a sweet romance. There were some heartbreaking moments, but most of the drama was pretty light. Overall it was a heart warming read.

Here is where I feel like I have no business writing a review for Suicide Note. It’s because I don’t know what it was...what it is that kept me from loving it. It wasn’t badly written; the story was good. It just never grabbed me. My emotions were never quite pul

It was ok, didn't love it, didn't hate it.

I thought it had a great potential but it fell short. I found it a tad disjointed and it took me a while to get into the rhythm. Each chapter was meant to be told from Jenn or Shane's POV but it kept jumping from one to the other within the same chapter, also in the same sentence from first person to the third.

I'm not nitpicking and I would have overlooked the lack of editing, but there were quite a few to let them go.

Gosh this one let me down a bit. I had high hopes from the ratings and synopsis, but it definitely fell short. You first meet Jenn after she has been dumped by her fiancé and her job is going nowhere. She has a chance encounter with army man Shane as he is on leave from Iraq. A "suicide note" leads these two to spending time together while both their worlds seem to be crumbling.

I had a hard time with the writing of the book. Each chapter was told from Shane or Jenn's POV, but the first person s

This book was reviously published as "The Suicide Note". This book is NOT about suicide. I know I shied away from it because of the title and I'm sure others have too. So I am telling you...READ THIS BOOK! It was FABULOUS! Teresa Mummert is one of my favorite authors and she did it again with The Note!

Jenn is a young woman who has had to suffer the ultimate heartbreak. She will forever be reminded of him and she is devastated. Jenn has always been second best to her sister. She is less successfu

A heartwarming book about love and betrayal, support and understanding, and about the strenght to give and get a second chance.

Ok, here I am in the minority again. I did like it but I did not absolutely LOVE it. Nice solid story. Nice characters. Nice dog. It was Nice. I really have nothing more to say about it - some people absolutely got way more from the book than I did and good for them. And to anyone who hasn't read it, go ahead, it is a good enough book. Sorry my review cannot be more inspirational but the book did not inspire me to write something more profound.

Jenn is lonely. She doesn't have the most supportive family and let's not mention the asshole ex-fiance. She's just going through the montions at work and dislikes her boss. She's in a funk.

What a beautiful love story. It was sweet, romantic with very little angst. It was refreshing to read a story that didn't give me chest pains. I loved both characters. Shane was amazing. He is handsome, sweet and caring. I really liked Jenn, she is sweet and funny. I loved watching their relationship grown into something very speical.

I really enjoy this book and I would definitely recommend it.

This is a book i don't think i'll forget in a hurry, the subject matter is very close to home for me. As it got to 85% I had tears streaming down my face at how Shane must of been feeling. Then just as I'd calmed myself down the last page set me off again in a good way.
