    A beautifully tender love story

    A beautifully written tender love story, Dear John reaches deep into the reader's heart and gives it a good squeeze! The story doesn't reveal how or why Jenny started to write to John, but one would assume that it was to overcome the difficulties she is experiencing in her own life. Jenny thinks that once John returns home again that the correspondence will be over, but she doesn't count on the intense impact she had on John, the hope she gave him or the reason for living when times got really tough. Through her written words she has changed John and he is willing to move heaven and earth to find her on his return to the States. Both Jenny and John have issues in their past that make it difficult to commit to the relationship but in spite of everything they have both been through, love has developed and they can't ignore it. The story is beautifully written and whilst sad there is also victory over circumstances and a wonderful ending. I enjoyed all the characters in the book and Drew especially drew a chuckle from me. However, John is the real winner as he is able to look beyond the circumstances and recognise the true worth of the woman who wrote him tender love letters whilst in the dessert. I reluctantly closed my book after the last page. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily post this review. This is my honest review.

She had a rough marriage and was recovering from and accident but she fantasize her emotions and desires through her letters to John. They both had hidden secrets and fought their attraction after he return home. A great love story between two characters in need of each other.

    Definitely worth a read

    I enjoyed this book, a sweet story about trying to get past personal issues and be happy. It saddened me to read the comments about the author at the start, but what wonderful people she had in her life, to put these books out there for people to discover. I did get a little frustrated in Jenny just assuming things and wish she's just talked to people, but I guess that would have made for a short book. I'm glad they got their HEA though. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.

    4.5 Stars!

    Dear John is a re-release of an early 90's Harlequin title. I tend to be hesitant about reading what I call vintage romance, because of outdated references and writing styles. Aside from a typewriter and video cassette reference, I couldn't have been more wrong. This story could easily have been a recent release. Starting with letters while John was serving in the ARMY overseas, a tenuous and anonymous relationship begins between Jenny and John. Having been injured 18 months earlier, Jenny doesn't make any attempt to finally meet John after he returns stateside. Not being deterred and halfway in love with Jenny already, John makes a point to be part of her life. I was truly impressed with the character depth and poignant storyline. Dear John was a sweet and tender romance with light conflict that both characters needed to overcome. The entire story was realistically developed and didn't shy away from the awkward maneuvering of a debilitating injury and how that played into a new relationship. Overall, this was a wonderful contemporary romance. It definitely makes me want to read more of this author's work. With that, I hope that the author's family decides to re-release additional out-of-print titles from her back list. (This is my voluntary and honest review of a complimentary copy of Dear John via shook Discovery.)
