Happily married to her college sweetheart, Poppy lived a blessed life with the husband of her dreams. Then everything changed. She is no longer a wife. She is no longer the envy of her single friends. Now, people look at her with pity as they whisper a single word behind her back.
Years after her husband’s tragic death, years of pain and sorrow and wishing for the life she’ll never get back, Poppy decides to finish Jamie’s birthday list. She’ll do the things he wanted to most. Because maybe, just maybe, if she can complete his list, she can start to live again.
Poppy expects going through the birthday list will be hard. She expects it to hurt. But what she doesn’t expect is Cole. Could the man who delivered the news of her husband’s death and shattered her heart be the one to help her put it back together again?
5 Beautifully Written Stars!
The Birthday List is such a beautiful love story && I absolutely loved every page! This book is full of so much Serendipity and just leaves you with so many feels. Devney Perry writes such amazing books and this one is nothing less than Amazing. I can’t recommend this book enough. I feel like everyone I know should read it, and can only hope they will love the story as much as I did.
Poppy & Cole are the absolute cutest couple. Poppy is this strong woman who has had to go through a life changing moment & has endured grief but yet didn’t falter. She continued to live her life and fulfil her dreams. In doing so she decides it’s time to complete The Birthday List that Jamie created and in doing this she will find the closure she needs to move on with her life, to allow herself to be happy again. Minute by Minute is her way of living her life and it’s the perfect outlook.
Cole is strong, good looking , kind, patient, & just so much more. He’s the perfect man in so many ways but just hasn’t ever found that woman he can see more with, not until Poppy enters into his life for a second time. Cole wants Poppy in his life so badly, and know without a doubt that she is the woman for him but he wants to be patient for her, to not rush her or scare her away. Poppy and Cole work together on The Birthday List, and it brings them so much closer.
Their Love is truly a deep love that I feel every person hopes to have in their lives.
The Birthday list really is a wonderful love story and I loved it so very much! This is a book that I know without a doubt I will read again, and I loved the characters. Devney Perry does not disappoint with her writing. ❤
Turning to the door, I smiled, ready to greet my late-evening customer, but faltered as the door closed behind him.
Cole Goodman was walking my way.
My belly dipped as I took him in. His aviator sunglasses were perched on top of his chocolate-brown hair. A black polo stretched across his broad shoulders and pulled tight across his muscled arms. His pale-blue jeans molded to his Herculean thighs before draping down to his black, square-toed boots. The leather belt on Cole’s trim waist held both a shining badge and a holstered gun.
Cole smiled and locked his light-green eyes on mine as he crossed the room.
His straight, white teeth made my breath hitch—something that had happened last night more times than I wanted to admit.
Molly, who had turned around from her seat to greet our customer, spun around so her back was to Cole. Her cheeks flushed as she whispered, “Wow.”
Wow was right.
Cole Goodman was—simply put—gorgeous.
He could give a woman a speeding ticket and get a thank-you in return. He inspired women to attempt push-ups in a karate class just for the chance to watch him sweat through his gi. Cole made grown women blush like teenagers and giggle in corners, like those girls at the dojo last night.
