Review: "Hannah’s List" by Debbie Macomber

If you’ve read any of my old reviews, you know that I’m a big Debbie Macomber fan. She knows how to weave a good story and tug at the heartstrings. So, when I was approached by Big Honcho Media to help with their media blitz to promote Debbie’s newest release, I jumped at the chance. Today, you’re getting a review of Hannah’s List. And tomorrow, we’re starting a contest that will give away 3 copies of the book as well as an extra special prize.

But today is about the review…

Occasionally, we get an opportunity to change our lives—whether it’s another chance at love, changing the path we’ve chosen or going back and making amends for the past. Hannah’s List is the story of a widower who is given an unexpected letter from his wife on the first anniversary of her death. In a remarkable act of love, Hannah includes a list of three women for him to consider marrying. With a unique twist and intriguing element, readers will be in for a wonderful story of a love that transcends time, hope that is exceptionally unselfish, and the possibility of a future otherwise unfathomable. An unexpected letter. An impossible request. The gift of a second chance.

Debbie Macomber has written another tear jerker. From page one, as Michael is reflecting on the loss of his wife and how hard the year has been without her, I was drawn into the story. And I didn’t want to put the book down as Michael struggles to follow through with Hannah’s last wish to fall in love again.

Now the book could’ve expanded a little more on Hannah’s battle with breast cancer. And Michael probably gave in to Hannah’s list a little too easily and quickly. But overall, I really enjoyed the story and the quirky characters Ms. Macomber sprinkled throughout the novel. I recommend Hannah’s List for those looking for a sweet romance that is guaranteed to produce a few tears.
