Dear Juliet (Trudy Stiles)

I lost her.
I thought she was the love of my life.
She was everything I needed. Everything I wanted.
She made me forget about my past. My family.
She made me feel real.
How do I move on from her?
Will I find someone like her?
It’s time to pick up the pieces.
But can I?
I’m Seth Tyson and this is my story.

I deserve a happily ever after, don’t I?

This book I know will be hard for me to review. So much happened and so much was learned that I just feel like Seth’s redemption was phenomenal and well deserved. I was browsing some reviews (now that I had all of the series read) and I was shocked to find that 97% of people were not a huge fan of Seth. WHAT? I was a fan of Seth throughout the other books but knowing his past, knowing what made him, made him that much more enjoyable.

Trudy’s coincidences in this book were perfect. Jaw dropping even. I didn’t see them coming. Isn’t that the best part of reading? My mind was blown. Utterly. Watching Seth and Juliet become childhood friends that blossomed from a pen pal friendship and then watching them transition into adults broke my heart but when they had victories my heart SOARED for them. Just right out the window.

“I don’t want to be alone with my grief anymore, and I want to absorb all of hers.”

My most favorite thing about this book was watching Seth open up and grow. Adjust. Change. Love. It was hard understanding his motives in the other books but when you finally read about his past it all becomes so clear. The second part of the book is so damn solid. SO. GOOD. Trudy did so well tying up any and all loose ends and bringing the characters together like she did.

I think there is a huge difference between just simply writing a story and writing a POWERFUL story that will leave you in a trance. Trudy created a series that sticks with you long after you are done. That makes you question “what do I do with my life now?!” I will think about Juliet, Seth, Tabby, and Alex about like I do Tania and Shura from The Bronze Horseman. These characters will always be a huge part of my Forever Family.
