The Life List
By Lori Nelson Spielman

To enjoy this book, you have to swallow the premise: that the heroine’s terminally ill mother would base her daughter’s inheritance on the fulfillment (within a year) of a list of life goals that she had written at age fourteen - twenty years previously.

The premise gave me pause, but when I decided to accept it, I managed to enjoy the book. Some of the goals seem quite difficult - have a baby, fall in love, buy a horse (Brett lives in the big city) - and the author deserves kudos for the clever and believable way that her character achieves her long lost dreams.

So, although the premise is a bit much, the author takes the book in some unexpected directions, making it better than I expected.
