I wanted something light, but not something this trivial, with writing this cliched.  Belongs in the genre ghetto.

A touching story of a man who has loved, lost, and is slowly putting his life back together. The story starts Dr. Michael Everett. It has been 1 year since his wife Hannah died of cancer. On this day, his best friend/Hannah's brother gives him a letter that Hannah left for him. She basically tells Michael that he still has a lot of life to live and that she wants him to be happy and find love again. She even goes so far as to list a few canidates for him.

The majority of the story is from Michael's point of view as he meets the women on the list. We see his feelings towards them and about his guilt that he even has feelings towards someone other than his wife. We also get a little of the points of view of the three women on the list, and the issues they are having with their life.
All in all, it was a beautiful story, with a wonderful happy ending for all those involved. ( )

A sweet romance based on an unusual premise. A young woman dying of cancer leaves a note for Michael, her grieving husband, to be read after her death. In it, she urges him to marry again, and even gives him a list of possible wives: her cousin, her oncology nurse, and a flighty, unpredictable model she met in her work as a buyer. Guess who Michael falls for? It's pretty obvious, even from the book's cover picture. However, as Shakespeare observed, "the course of true love never did run smooth" . The twists, turns, obstacles, and rocks in their path make for an interesting read. ( )

Dr. Michael Everett's wife Hannah died after a very short battle with ovarian cancer and on the anniversary of her death, her brother gives him a letter Hannah wrote to him shortly before her death. She wanted him to marry again and picked three women he should consider. Kinda of quirky, but a good read.

My darling Michael, I know this letter will come as a shock to you….

On the anniversary of his beloved wife's death, Dr. Michael Everett receives a letter Hannah had written him.

In it she reminds him of her love and makes one final request. An impossible request—I want you to marry again. She tells him he shouldn't spend the years he has left grieving her. And to that end she's chosen three women she asks him to consider.

First on Hannah's list is her cousin, Winter Adams, a trained chef who owns a café on Seattle's Blossom Street. The second is Leanne Lancaster, Hannah's oncology nurse. Michael knows them both. But the third name is one he's not familiar with—Macy Roth.

Each of these three women has her own heartache, her own private grief. More than a year earlier, Winter broke off her relationship with another chef. Leanne is divorced from a man who defrauded the hospital for which she works. And Macy lacks family of her own, the family she craves, but she's a rescuer of strays, human and animal. Macy is energetic, artistic, eccentric—and couldn't be more different from Michael.

During the months that follow, he spends time with Winter, Leanne and Macy, learning more about each of them…and about himself. Learning what Hannah already knew. He's a man who needs the completeness only love can offer. And Hannah's list leads him to the woman who can help him find it.
