Happily married to her college sweetheart, Poppy lived a blessed life with the husband of her dreams. Then everything changed. She is no longer a wife. She is no longer the envy of her single friends. Now, people look at her with pity as they whisper a single word behind her back. 


Years after her husband’s tragic death, years of pain and sorrow and wishing for the life she’ll never get back, Poppy decides to finish Jamie’s birthday list. She’ll do the things he wanted to most. Because maybe, just maybe, if she can complete his list, she can start to live again. 

Poppy expects going through the birthday list will be hard. She expects it to hurt. But what she doesn’t expect is Cole. Could the man who delivered the news of her husband’s death and shattered her heart be the one to help her put it back together again?

Turning to the door, I smiled, ready to greet my late-evening customer, but faltered as the door closed behind him. 

Cole Goodman was walking my way. 

My belly dipped as I took him in. His aviator sunglasses were perched on top of his chocolate-brown hair. A black polo stretched across his broad shoulders and pulled tight across his muscled arms. His pale-blue jeans molded to his Herculean thighs before draping down to his black, square-toed boots. The leather belt on Cole’s trim waist held both a shining badge and a holstered gun. 

Cole smiled and locked his light-green eyes on mine as he crossed the room. 

His straight, white teeth made my breath hitch—something that had happened last night more times than I wanted to admit. 

Molly, who had turned around from her seat to greet our customer, spun around so her back was to Cole. Her cheeks flushed as she whispered, “Wow.” 

Wow was right. 

Cole Goodman was—simply put—gorgeous. 

He could give a woman a speeding ticket and get a thank-you in return. He inspired women to attempt push-ups in a karate class just for the chance to watch him sweat through his gi. Cole made grown women blush like teenagers and giggle in corners, like those girls at the dojo last night.



Books like The Birthday List are the reason why I love to escape to book town. Devney Perry's writing style is sublime!! I am so mad at myself for not reading her work sooner!! I had an amazing reading escape and Poppy and Cole's love story gave me all the feels!!! These two beautiful, passionate and amazing characters stole a piece of my heart from the moment I met them. 

Poppy is not the only one that wanted to check things off a list. I did too when I read my first book by Devney Perry. She was on my 2018 TBR list and I will without a doubt be binge-reading her Jamison Valley Series as soon as I can because her writing style is AMAZING!!! In The Birthday List, Poppy is trying to move forward after the loss of her husband. Life without Jamie his difficult. Five years have passed since that tragic night and Poppy is ready to move forward by completing Jamie's birthday list. The last thing she expected was come face-to-face with Cole Goodman. She could never forget that night when Cole walked into her life and gave her some devastating news. As days go by, Poppy gets help from Cole to accomplish every item on Jamie's list. Each moment that they share together is special and Poppy soon discovers that Cole is a soothing balm for her broken heart. His love, patience and kindness is putting all the pieces of her broken heart together.

Gah!!! Be ready for a major swoon fest!!! Cole was such a protective, caring and loyal hero. The way he fell for Poppy melted my heart!! He was always there to reach out and comfort Poppy when she needed it the most and his love was like a breath of fresh air in Poppy's life. It was so easy to relate to Poppy's character. I wanted to reach into the book and give her a big hug. I connected with her story from the very beginning and I was cheering for her to be able to let go of the past and take a step toward the future with Cole. Their slow-burning romance is one that gave me butterflies in my stomach and left me with a heart bursting with love.

I had a wonderful time reading this book and I will without a doubt revisit this story and these characters very soon! I'm crossing my fingers that Molly and Finn get their own book. I'm cheering for them! This was an amazing story and I'm so happy that I finally read a book by this author. I highly recommend The Birthday List!


I give, The Birthday List, by Devney Perry, 4.5 emotional, passionate, heart-melting stars!
