Favorite Quotes:

It was an untraditional traditional wedding ceremony, but it was magical all the same. They’d learned early on that love wasn’t easy. Sometimes it meant you acted like a stupid ass. Sometimes it meant you messed up. Sometimes it was equivalent to running a marathon in what was practically a blizzard.

Everyone did it—got caught up in the routine, in the chaos, in the madness. In the midst of this crisis, though, she realized the little moments were what made them who they were… It

Remember When is a simple story packed with so much love and raw emotions that make it beautiful and unforgettable.

I loved to see Todd and Jess' story unfolding between the pages,some of their memories made my heart smile others shattered it,I was so engaged in it I could feel all their mutual love.

I think Lindsay Detwiler can write whatever she wants I'll read it because she can do no wrong.

This was a fast read. So touching, yet heartbreaking. I enjoyed this book. It’s shows a power of love. However it’s more of an adult romance which not really my cup of tea. Nevertheless the story itself is so personal and the last part was my favourite :)

Thank you to Lindsay for sending me this book! ✨

This is the first book I have read from this author and it was great. I usually don't read this type of book but the blurb was really interesting and it grabbed me. It was a really great read and I felt for Jessica and Todd, they went through a very traumatic situation. Jessica is a bit of a "In the moment" kind of girl, while she may think she knows what she is doing, Todd seems to come to her rescue. Todd is the fixer upper and almost the complete opposite of Jess. Together, they are an unstop ...more

It's going to be hard to put into words how much I loved this book. First, the cover. It's gorgeous, I love snow and yellow roses, but after finishing the book, the cover has a deeper meaning to me now making it even more beautiful. This author has become one of my must read authors since the first book I read of hers. Each story has been unique and unlike anything I've personally read. This one was no exception. Jess and Todd have been through a lot in life, and in their marriage. It hasn't alw ...more

Todd is injured and they don't know how to begin getting out of their dangerous situation. While they wait out the days-long snow storm, they recollect their lives. Both the joy and the pain.

They go thorough many "remember when..." scenarios together and individually. While they realize how special their relationship is amongst themselves, they also realize they have so much more they want to experie

Remember When is probably one of the most heartfelt stories that I've ever read. Already a fan of Lindsay Detwiler's, I was equally eager and nervous to read this. The premise promises for a nostalgic story, and nostalgia can be both good and bad. We do get bit of both as Jessica and Todd reflect on the ups and down an their marriage, events that might have ripped them a part and also ones that brought them closer to each other. Sometimes they were one in the same.

Excellent novel! The author takes you on an emotional rollercoaster, alternating between the intense, nail biting situation at hand and the hilarious moments that come to life as Todd and Jess reminisce about their past. A perfect summer read for anyone looking for a romantic story that will leave the reader begging for the same miracle Todd and Jess are longing for.

Rating: 4.5*

A beautifully written and poignant read. It was a book about reflection and surviving against the odds. It is also about opening your mind to other possibilities. There was no where for the author to hide here as the situation does not allow for outside distractions. It is story telling in its purest form, driven forward by the two characters Jess and Todd.

**A copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.**

I have never really been one for romance books. When I was younger, I did read my fair share of Christian Romance. Mostly because I enjoyed them in my teens and because they were clean. When I first started reading Lindsay Detwiler I was hesitant. They were romance novels. They are so much more than that. They are clean (most romance novels

Remember When is a story of a tragedy that turns into a revival of memories good and bad from the past lives of Jessica and Todd. While possible living their last days, Jessica and Todd relive many scenes from their life. This is a true test of their love and devotion for each other. Also, reading this story makes you want to become more away of survival skills. Loved the suspense in this novel. Henry the Mastiff also appears in every book from this author. Loved it!!

Remember When is one of those books that stay with you for a long while after reading it. I sat for a while after reading it, thinking about Jessica and Todd. Their love story was beautiful and sad to read. This is a story that will make you cry. It is also a story that showcases that not all relationships are perfect and it takes work to keep up one.

Remember When has a very simple plot. Jessica and Todd are taking the back roads home from a friend’s wedding on a snowy winter night. There is a v

I’m not even sure where to start with this book. It has been a while since a book literally took my heart and twisted it so much that I wasn’t sure I had anything left to give by the end of the book. Oh and that ending wow…
Jessica and Todd like many married couples think they have all the time in the world to do everything they want to. However we never really know, will today be the day. The day that we don’t get to finish what we started. While Jessica and Todd realize they may or not be rescu

Jessica and Todd have been at a wedding. On the way home they get in a bad snow storm. Their truck gets stuck in the snow,it snows for days.
They talk about all the memories of their past. They talk about their hopes and dreams.
Whether they get out of this situation or not.
They made a commitment to each other, " I will always love you until my dying breath.".. whenever that will be.

Jessica and Todd are driving home from a wedding when they tumble down an incline and land in a snowdrift between a bunch of trees! Now they have to do whatever they can to stay alive! While stuck in their car, they reminisce about their life together. They also worry about their beloved mastiff dog, Henry. This book is well written and full of emotion.

4 1/2 stars!

This is Todd and Jess's story. They get stranded in the middle of a snowstorm and think it's the end. Life gives miracles sometimes.
This story felt real. Remember When is such a nice title for this book because Todd & Jess while stranded in their vehicle during a snowstorm remember life events in the past.

Review by Emma-Louise Lewis on behalf of KFF

“A Single moment can change everything – but can love help us survive?”

This question is asked on the front cover of Remember When. This question not only leads the reader into one of the most emotionally raw books I have ever had the pleasure of reading; but also pulls the reader through a beautifully sweet series of memories that Jess & Todd re-live during their harrowing situation.

Absolutely brilliant!
I totally loved this book. It's so well written and emotive. Jessica and Todd are just normal people who share an amazing love that's told in flashbacks. I found myself laughing at the crazy things they did and as the book progressed I became desperate for them to have them have a HEA. What they did for one another and what they were willing to sacrifice to be together kept me hooked until the very last page.
Excellent writing from Lindsay Detwiler. This is a book I will re
