My Thoughts - Story

I loved the whole story concept of a past romantic mystery. As I was reading the letters left behind by Alfred, I felt myself tearing up with the tragic love lost. And how the author tied in the present romance between Melanie and Josh just put the icing on the cake. This book really touched my heart and I was so engrossed in the story that I couldn't put it down until I read the last page. And even today, I find myself thinking about Alfred and ??, Melanie and Josh and the rest of the characters in this story.

Yes, Josh pissed me off a bunch during the story, but by the ending it finally made sense why he was as hot and cold as he was.

Even though every cell in my body is begging me to expose more of this story, I don't want to give away spoilers about what happened to Alfred or his lost love.

The reason why I took a half a star off is that I felt that Melanie and Josh's characters weren't completely developed during their whirlwind romance, but it was easy to look past this as the story was heartfelt and tugged at my soul.
