My dearest Larkin.
It has been almost eight months since the love of his life, Larkin, passed, and Ryan Boone has tried to make good on his promise to her to keep living. The letters she left behind had helped him tremendously, but all of a sudden, he felt like he was drowning and only she could save him. The only way he could think to reach out to her was to write her letters, just like she did to him. He never thought that she would actually get them; after all, she was gone. But when he sees her sitting on their private dune reading his letter, his grief would never be the same.
Ryan’s Letters, the sequel to Jax Jillian’s first novel, Larkin’s Letters, takes readers on a journey with Ryan Boone as he struggles to completely come to terms with his wife’s death. That struggle becomes even harder when Larkin’s ghost comes to visit him each time he writes to her. But when Lux, a beautiful new doctor, moves in next door and befriends Ryan, he must choose between Larkin’s visits and a potential new love.
HEART WRENCHING-ROMANTIC LOVE STORY
I received an ARC from the author JAX JILLIAN-in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey’s very honest opinion of RYAN’S LETTERS. Now having not read Ms. Jillian’s first novel Larkin’s Letters-(which I am now gonna have to read). I was unsure of what type of author Ms.Jillian would be.
I found out with a few sentences that she is a very emotional one. Ms. Jillian is able to bring so much emotion to her writing & into the story. You are able to feel all the emotions Ryan is going through. The grieving -the anger-love-disappointment-sadness-accepting- and letting go.
Ms. Jillian is a very talented author. She brings her characters to life right before your eyes- their emotions -you are able to feel. It is like -it’s happening to you. As for the scenes in the story -they are so amazing, and well described & detailed. You feel part of the story and see everything so clearly.
Ryan is left letters by his dead wife Larkin. Which he reads, when he goes back to their house on the weekend. Where she passed away. He writes a letter to her -then goes out their favorite place on the dune. Feeds the birds, sets up a bonfire an puts his fishing pole in the water for some night fishing. But he also takes and burns his letter to Larkin. This is weekly tradition.
Now he has a new neighbour. Ryan believes that they are sitting on his dune. But he soon learns that it is not her but Larkin. Larkin wants him to open himself to love again. He begins talking to his neighbour Lux -a doctor. Lux is dealing with her own emotional problem. Thinking that moving and starting over would help – she decides to buy a house next door to Ryan.
Can they help each other over come their problems? Will Ryan be able to finally let Larkin go?
This story is so emotional – you will need plenty of tissue. I do recommend this whole hardly for all readers. Mismousey gives this a firm rating of 80 out of 5 stars.
