5 Star Review

Warning: KEEP TISSUES HANDY! YOU WILL NEED THEM.

I was asked to read and review If Tomorrow Never Comes by Lisa Chalmers for Swoon Worthy Books. The first thing that captured my interest was the title because automatically I thought about the country song by Garth Brooks, which I love. So I knew that I wanted to read it right then. Well let’s just say that once I started the story, I could not put it down. Lisa Chalmers held me captive from the very beginning.  Let me just say that that Chalmers has written an amazingly beautiful, but heartbreaking book. But if you can get past the tears, this book has a wonderful message I think.

Josh Collins has everything he could ever want in life, his beautiful girlfriend Avery (who is his soul mate and is also pregnant with their first child) and a very loving and supportive family who he is very close with. But when Josh leaves one morning for a trip with his brothers, he loses his life in a car accident and is now faced with the biggest fight he has ever had and that is the fight to return to his life.

“This wasn’t your time. Far from it actually.’ The man leaned forward. “Perhaps we’ll be able to send you back.”  “However, you’ll need to plead your case.”

All of Josh’s thoughts suddenly stopped as the implications hit him. “My case?” What was there to plead? He had a family to go back for. A baby. A woman he loved. A future he had all planned out, one that made him wake up every morning with a smile on his face. All those plans he made, the ones he’d never quite managed to tell her about. The ones that had him vowing to take care of her each and every day of her life.”

Avery Rhodes lost everything the day that she lost her true love Josh. The only thing she has left of him is their unborn child. While grieving for his loss she is slowly losing herself and tries her best to get back to a point that she can cope with all of her grief without losing her child as well.

This story is amazing. It will take you on an emotional roller coaster, and have you questioning so many things about life. Trust me, all the what if I did this, or why do that today when I can do it tomorrow. Lisa makes you think about all of these, but she writes a beautiful love story. I can’t wait to read more from her in the future.
