Brian Weller is a haunted man. It's been two years since the tragic accident that left his three-year-old son dead and his wife in an irreversible coma. A popular author of mega- selling thrillers, Brian's life has reached a crossroads: his new book is stalled, his wife's prognosis is dire, and he teeters on the brink of despair. Everything changes the morning an e- mail arrives from Boston artist Joanna Richman. Her heartfelt note brings back all the poignant memories: the night their eyes met, the fiery passion of their short- lived affair, and the agonizing moment he was forced to leave Joanna forever. Now, fifteen years later, the guilt and anger threaten to overwhelm him. Vowing to make things right, Brian arranges a book- signing tour that will take him back to Boston. He is eager to see Joanna again, but remains unsure where their reunion will lead. One thing is certain: the forces that tore their love asunder will stop at nothing to keep them apart. Filled with tender romance and taut suspense, A Note from an Old Acquaintance is an unforgettable story about fate, honor, and the power of true love.

My Opinion:

Even though this book wasn't a hot, sinful sex type book, it was enthralling and endearing. I truly loved it. It was a forbidden love story between two artists who fell in love despite one of them being in a relationship with another man.

Brian is aspiring writer when he met Joanna, an artist who teaches art and has never sold a piece. As they get to know each other they inspire each other to be the best they can be. Unfortunately, Joanna is torn between her deep love of Brian who understands her, and her rich fiance, who wants to buy her way into becoming a famous artists. One thing leads to another, and Brian an Joanna fall apart. But, nothing can stop true love...

This book was very, very intriguing as I read along Joanna and Brian's journey of love. It was an amazing read that had strong characters, and even stronger love. I could not put this down!

My favorite part was when Joanna FINALLY confronts Erick (the fiance and then husband). i mean, seriously, I know she had feelings for him, but really. If I was Brian-when they were dating, before any of them married-I would feel as if Joanna was stringing him along for sex.

The only problem with the book is that certain parts in the middle become boring, but that's about it. Not so boring I wanted to put it down, but still. A reader wants to be entertained all the way through.

This book could definitely be defined as a tear-jerker with a happy ending. It had some moments that I cried to,laughed to, and others that made me "awww." A true master piece!


Any lover of romance, and happy endings should be enthralled with novel as well. Pick it up, and see for yourself!
