* I got this eARC from The Wild Rose Press, Inc and Netgalley in exhange for a honest review *

This was such a sweet read. At first glance of the book i did not imediately like Peter. But when i came to know why, and he showed differetn sides i really liked him. Plus Lacie and Logan was so cute! I liked that the author took alot of time to show us the daiting, that it wasn`t rushed and Peter thought alot about it, his familiy and his own feelings. Plus ofcourse i was roothing for the obvious co

Maisie's List is a sweet story, with a little humor and a lot of poignancy thrown in. It follows Peter, a widowed veterinarian with two kids, as he tries to fulfill one of his wife's last wishes: to find a woman to love. Maisie has left sealed, numbered envelopes with women she claims might be The One. We get to know Maisie, the wife, through her letters and through "conversations" Peter has with her at night. We also learn about her from the memories her kids and Peter's office manager Caroline ...more

This story tore apart my heart from beginning to end! Maisie left this earth much to early leaving a five year old girl and eleven year old boy with their dad Peter who never realized how hard it was to raise children, thank goodness for Caroline. Caroline has been the glue in the family since Maisie’s passing so she was the one who gave Peter the envelope that Maisie left for him, in that envelope was four numbered envelopes with women Maisie thought would make a good wife and mother for the fa ...more

“Maisie’s List was different from my usual reads. It had a different vibe that felt like freshen air and I’m so pleased of what I read. The vet thing was the first part that trapped my attention. Who doesn’t love a man that loves animals? Like I said the story was different yet it was special too. It was a delightful single dad romance that had me smiling almost all the time.”

What a wonderful book. This woman really loved her husband and knew what he would need after she past away. This book gave me all the feels, lol. If you are looking for a little bit of laughter mixed in with some sadness and happiness then this is definitely the book for you. What a roller coaster ride this book was for me. Once I started reading this book I could not seem to put it down. Simply amazing book and definitely recommended.

This book will melt your heart. It has been 15 months since Peter lost his wife. He comes to work and there is a package for him. He recognized  the handwriting and was beside himself.  It was from his late wife. His wife lets him know that it was time to start dating. She leaves him 4 candidates that she has chosen for him. I enjoyed reading this book. From Peter trying with his kids, to trying to date.

This story of course started off hard to read. Never something you want to read about when a loved one passes away. But let me tell you this author was great in the way she told this story. The way the way his wife who past away left him a list of things to do and people to meet. I love this book. There was tears, laughs and also love...
As I wasn't previously familiar with the author, Maisie's List was a total surprise to me in a very good way. It was a heartfelt and hopeful romance but at the same time there was a bittersweet element running under the main narrative that was spot on and gave it enough gravity and angst to keep me fully engaged in the story. The basic plot is that Peter, a harried single dad veterinarian of two kids, is trying to keep a whole lot of balls in the air after the death of his beloved wife. Prior to ...more

At the urging of his late wife in the form of some letters, Peter is entering the dating world again. There is some laughter especially in the scenes with the children. There are some commiserating moments when Peter awkwardly starts dating. There are some poignant moments when he converses with his wife ...more

Peter Hunter is a 37 year old veterinarian who is still recovering from the death of his wife. His children Logan and Lacie are good kids but being a single dad is difficult. His wife Maisie left some letters for Peter with Caroline, his office manager, urging him to start dating again. There is humor here, so it isn't maudlin and the characters are likeable. I received a copy from the publisher for an honest review. ...more

I could not get to the end fast enough. I had to know how this ended. I was not disappointed. Maisie’s List is beautifully and thoughtfully written. It is movie worthy. Peter is a widowed, veterinarian raising two children. He learns that his wife has written him letters to move on with his life when he is ready. I love the whole concept of this story. It was not as sad as I thought it might be which helped me enjoy this story without too many tears. The ending of each letter grabbed my heart, b ...more

This book was like nothing that I have ever read. Peter is widowed day to a son and daughter. Grieving the loss of his wife, Maisey you feel for him and the kids.
Maisey left a list of four potential ladies to fill her role in letters for Peter. This story shows the real struggles that Peter faces with grief, prioritizing his kids and trying to honor Maisies matches for him.

Shows the different ways life goes on and how we mana
