Letters to the Lost (Letters to the Lost #1) by Brigid Kemmerer

“We’re all united by grief, and somehow divided by the same thing.”

Resume: Juliet Young always writes letters to her mother, a world-traveling photojournalist. Even after her mother’s death, she leaves letters at her grave. It’s the only way Juliet can cope. Declan Murphy isn’t the sort of guy you want to cross. In the midst of his court-ordered community service at the local cemetery, he’s trying to escape the demons of his past. When Declan reads a haunting letter left beside a grave, he can’t resist writing back. But neither Declan nor Juliet knows that they’re not actually strangers.

“One day isn’t your whole life. A day is just a day.”

I’m so surprised with this book. I expected to like, I expected it to be obvious but I was so so so wrong. I loved this book, there’s twists here and there and you think you know the answer but you really don’t. It isn’t predictable at all.

I loved the characters. Juliet and Declan are broken, they both need someone and they find peace with each other, sharing memories and sadness. Their connection feels real. Maybe I just wished we could see a bit more of them as couple or maybe see their relationship with their parents after they find the peace they needed but yet I loved this. I didn’t want this book to end.

One of my favorite 2018 reads, for sure.
