Remember When

A single moment can change everything… but can love help us survive?

This wasn’t how it was supposed to be…

Settled into married life, Jessica and Todd think they have so much time… until everything comes to a halt on a snowy back road. When they find themselves in a life or death situation, with rescue seeming impossible, they cling to the only hope they have left: their love for each other.

As Jessica and Todd fight for survival, their connection carries them through the biggest challenge of their lives. Memories and regrets swirl around the couple as they finally take a moment to reflect on what really matters.

There’s one big, icy question that haunts them, though: Is this where their story will end?

 

My thoughts…

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 rescued they decide to relive some of their favorite memories. Some of these memories are sweet and some not so sweet.  I really enjoyed the aspect of being with the couple as they are now and how they were as a new couple.  It really added quite a new twist on a woman’s fiction book.  I liked how Jessica and Todd had to be strong for each other in different ways in this book.  While you see that Todd was Jessica’s rock a lot in the book you also look back and see that Jessica was Todd’s anchor.  The flashbacks to what situation they are in now are seamless.  I just fell in love with these characters and the love they have for each other.  I enjoyed how corky they were, I loved that they were hermits, that they had inside jokes.  Everything about this book was perfection…Be prepared when reading you may need tissues.

It’s so nice to read a book where you instantly connect with the characters.  I could place hubby and I right into the characters shoes.  We always say Remember When? Some of our best stories start from “Remember When”  which makes this book connect with me so much more. There is a dog named Henry in this book who is to be exactly like the author’s dog Henry.   I have met the real life Henry twice now and he is a doll baby!!  I’ll add pictures of him below with ballerina princess and mini-hulk.  It’s hard to tell who was more excited by this visit..Henry or the kids?? haha!!

 

Not only does this author have an amazing dog, 5 super duper cool cats.. she has a weekly FB live video on Thursdays at 7pm.  Her husband Chad joins her on this weekly videos where they talk about how hard it is to adult and whatever else might have happened during the week.  Usually their videos have me laughing really hard, and they are super interactive when you comment.  Also if you comment on the videos you are automatically entered to win prizes 😀  I’m not sure if you saw on my Instagram but I won the April black box just for commenting.  I’ll leave a picture below..

About the Author..

Lindsay Detwiler

An English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she’s done her job.

Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility
