"She was my gravity. She was the light in the darkest of my days, and her smile ignited a flame inside of me that had gone out a long time ago."
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.
Things spoken can be forgotten and forgiven, but the written word has the power to change the course of history,...more
I had never read any of Teresa Mummerts books before I picked up Suicide Note. I have to say thats 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 thats getting lots of buzz actually lives up to expectation. Theres nothing worse than reading something and thinking okay, I dont get it!! Why is everyone raving over this? I can honestly tell you that I fell in love with these two characters ...more
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.
I couldnt save my mother , my relationship or the Iraqui ...more

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 wasnt 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 ...more
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. Its because I dont know what it was...what it is that kept me from loving it. It wasnt badly written; the story was good. It just never grabbed me. My emotions were never quite pulled ...more
*** Do not let the title stop you from reading this one... no actual or attempted suicide occurs! ***
A heartfelt story about two people who randomly come together and go on a journey of friendship, finding themselves and finding love against all odds.
Jenn is just days from her 27th birthday. She has not had an easy year. Her family situation is not ideal, and her fiance was cheating on her, so she left him. Her sister is now marrying her former fiance- Its ...more
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.
This one is from Shane's POV, he's ...more
The blurb of the book was appealing to me so I really wanted to read this book. However, as soon as I started, the alarm bells started to ring and here I am at 30%, dropping the book because I have lost all hope :(
I rarely say something "this bad" about a book but I need to say it here.
This book is unfortunately very poorly written. Its writing is so very bad in so many ways...
Terrible, horrendous writing!
This was a super sweet story about a soldier that gets dumped by his girlfriend while he's in Iraq and a beautiful girl that gets dumped by her finace for her sister.. Shane gets hold of a letter that Jenn was writing to her family telling them goodbye. She was just leaving town to get away from her family and job and start over somewhere else.. however, the letter sounds like a suicide letter. Shane can't let this beautiful girl thats hurting just like him end her life. So he's ...more
This story has no suicide or sucide acts. Don't let the title fool you.
It is a wonderfully well written story of Shane and Jenn.
Told from Dual points of view.
Shane is on a personal leave from Iraq and his fiancee has left him. She has already gotten married to another man. Right before they were to get married, and in the same church.
Jenn just got dumped by her fiancee..who left her for her sister. He was cheating on her with her sister when they were ...more
Teresa Mummert has done it AGAIN!! I am COMPLETELY blown away by this book!! Suicide Note is hands down one of the BEST books that I have EVER read!! I absolutely DEVOURED it!!
Things spoken can be forgotten and forgive but the written word has the power to change the course of history, to alter our lives.
This was so much more than simply sitting down and reading a book to me. It was like I was a silent ...more
Teresa Mummert has created a beautiful heartwarming story that you will fall in love with.
She was gravity. She was the light in the darkest of my days, and her smile ignited a flame inside of me that had gone out a long time ago.
We first met up with Jenn and Shane, as they are each struggling with the aftermath of failing relationships. Jenn has had it rough; an arrogant ass of an ex, a sister that I would have punched in the face if she were mine and ...more
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 ...more
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

First of all, I must tell you that I started reading the book in the evening and couldnt put it down. This is one of those books that keep you glued to your ereader. :)
A heartwarming book about love and betrayal, support and understanding, and about the strenght to give and get a second chance.
This book is about a suicide note, but not about a suicide act ! It's about the power of true love and how a broken heart can heal thorugh it.
"I always ...more
OMG! Teresa, I don't know how you continue to break my heart and put the pieces back together like you do, But everytime you do,you do it with such emotion. I have no words at this moment. This book was so incredible, I cried A LOT, I smiled, I loved and I devoured this book. The emotions you write in this book are so strong. I loved Jenn, strong, independent, and so unsure of herself. But Shane saw it all and knew she was the most amazingly ...more

Wow... that is what I was left with after reading this book. I loved loved loved this book. This book has everything! I loved the characters and the story and the love! Ugh...
This book captured me from the very beginning. Jenn had her share of crap thrown in her face. Her personal life was hell, her job was hell... her family was awful... but Shane's life wasn't perfect either. He was overseas and was dumped in a letter that got to him a ...more
What did I like? Well, I liked Shane. I love how he fell for Jenn and fell hard, and I love that he owned it almost right away. No waffling around with his feelings. That's a real man, ladies.
I liked much of the dialogue. Some of it cracked me up. Some of it made me mad. I swooned a little, teared up a little, and smiled a lot.
I'll admit it. I cried, a lot. I laughed, smiled, grinned, ...more
A great story. Not a bad book, but i didn't love it.
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.
Shane is in the military and just found out his girlfriend left him for another guy. He has some time off and instead of going home he decides to visit his cousin in NC. Shane's cousin is Jenn's boss. Fate seems to come into play on their casual ...more
My LORD ~ Jenn that poor girl she's been through it and when you find out what she went through you will be doing this too...............
I couldn't fathom that happening to me that to me is the ULTIMATE betrayal. Well a mix up a work leads to the best darn thing to ever happen in Jenn's life and ...more
Thank you Teresa for an awesome story . It amazes me how you always write stories with characters that we all fall in love with and can connect with right away . This Book pulled me right in from the beginning and I felt every ounce of sadness, hope, Happiness , the crazy ex's everything right from the start.

With those words I will admit I had this book in my grasp and I pushed it to the side and said let me finish this one before I start. Well BIG MISTAKE because let me tell you, this is one book you do not want to miss or put off. I cried through a lot of this book and not that I was sad but that is how much emotion Teresa made me feel. This story completely owned me from the beginning and I was unable ...more
