    Incredibly Moving Story!! Just So Good!!

    This was a fun book to read! The creation of the Birthday List is great. The story is focused around a sad storyline but that itself sets the tone for the love and laughter all throughout the book. This book gives you all the feels. Poppy becomes a widow set out to complete the Birthday List journey her husband started. She develops a budding romance along her journey with Cole...the cop who had to tell her her husband was dead. They embark on adventures, including a swim in a pool of green jello, and together heal her heart so she can live again. The Maysen Jar comes to life! Devney did a great job giving you all the feels in this book...covering the range of emotions completely. A relaxing read that is very enjoyable.

    Beautiful, heartfelt romance.

    The Birthday List Devney Perry This romantic contemporary novel had me in tears just reading the prologue. It grabbed my heart and never let go till the last page, and I didn’t want it to end. Poppy Maysen met the love of her life, Jamie, in college, and has been married for a year. Getting ready to celebrate their first anniversary, Jamie is headed to do some last minute shopping and promises to be back shortly. He never makes it home, killed in an armed robbery. She soon wished she was dead also. But life has a way of going on. After five years she is poised to open her dream come true restaurant, The Maysen Jar. Poppy and her partner, best friend, and sister-in-law Molly are overjoyed and ready to open. Their shop is unique, everything is served and cooked in mason jars.Before his death, Jamie had been working on what he called his Birthday List, something crazy/fun/dangerous to do on each of his birthdays. Poppy decided it was time to try and move on with her life, and accomplishing each item was part of her goodby. Next on her list was Karate, and she had her first lesson that night. Cole Goodman, police officer and black belt Karate instructor is totally shocked when he see’s the woman’s whose life he devastated five years ago after informing her of her husbands murder. He remembers her quiet grief, and had ended up staying with her till her brother arrived. He has never forgotten her, and is now face to face with her. Poppy immediately recognizes him and is shocked by the electricity that seems to arc between them during her Karate lesson. He wants to see her again, but knows she’s not ready. He will be patient. The love story grows with the fun of time spent together as Cole helps her with the Birthday List. There’s laughter, passion and a love that Poppy never thought possible again. Most of all is the heart and soul Ms. Perry surrounds all her characters with. If you haven’t read any of Ms. Perry’s works, what are you waiting for? The Birthday List is already one of my favorites of 2018! A special thank you to the author and publisher for the opportunity to review this amazing novel. Pat Fordyce

    One minute at a time....

    I'm still in awe.... Loss is such a deep and delicate subject. Maybe because we all feel it and deal with it in different ways. I got completely immerse with these characters. I loved the way loss and what comes with ir was described, it felt real but I also loved how moving forward and falling in love again was handled. I was hurting so much for Poppy but I was also rooting for her and Cole from the start. Cole... Oh Cole

    A new favorite!!!

    What a beautiful story! I'm gonna be one of the first ones to say that having a deceased spouse as a major part in a book rarely works for me, however what Devney Perry did here was just beautiful. The way she wrote how Cole helping Poppy on the journey to letting Jamie go was stunning. I've never read a more perfect way to introduce a new love into someone's life who wasn't ready to let go of the last love. Poppy has been mourning Jamie for 5 years. She knows she needs to get to a better place and maybe completing her husbands birthday list will help get there. Just before Jamie was murdered, instead of doing a bucket list, he created a birthday list of things he wanted to do before each of his birthdays. Since the police never found his killer, Poppy is hoping that completing his list will bring her some closure. One of the first items on the birthday list was taking a karate class. When Poppy shows up to class, she runs into Cole Goodman. Cole is instantly drawn to Poppy. He's never had a woman capture his attention so thoroughly. Knowing that she lost her husband, he knows he has to tread carefully or he may scare her off. The way Cole integrated himself into Poppy's life and how patient and kind and protective he was of her will make you fall so far into love with him. I can't stress enough how perfect the author wrote Cole's character and his pursuit of Poppy in this delicate situation. I was riveted! This is one book that will stay with me for a very long time.
