Hope everybody is having a fabulous weekend! Today I am so excited to be part of the blog tour for this fabulous book The Birthday List… This was such a sweet love story full of fabulous characters, you can read my full 4.5 star review below… hope you get an opportunity to read it as well and love it as much as I did😍
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.

4.5 Adorable Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟.5
This was my first book by Devney Perry, but it definitely will not be my last….. this was such a sweet love story with the perfect amount of angst, heartbreak, humor,romance, and steam….. The book made me laugh, it made me cry, and it left me with a big smile on my face….
Poppy was married to her college sweetheart Jamie the love of her life…. and then one day when running errands he got caught up in a robbery and was murdered…. Jamie was a fun loving guy…. and created a list the “Birthday List“ listing an activity he wanted to complete on or before each of his birthdays…. it is now five years later and Poppy is still heartbroken but starting to move on…. she has opened a restaurant and now is attempting to complete all the items on Jamie’s “Birthday List“…. One of the items on the list is to attend a karate class… while at this karate class she runs into Cole the police officer who had informed her of her husband‘s death five years ago…. and there is definitely something between them but how can she dishonor the memory of Jamie?
Poppy was such a real and likable character… absolutely a girl I would love to go to lunch with… preferably at her restaurant and have a yummy chicken pot pie in one of those adorable mason jars topped off by some apple pie in a jar as well….Cole was in a word perfection…. sweet, nice, patience of a saint, hot hot hot, muscles for days, not clingy, not controlling, not overly romantic, and did I mention patient and hot hot hot….. unfortunately there is no man like Cole walking around in the real world, he only exists in this book, and that’s why reading is so wonderful….. The chemistry between the two of them was both hot and adorable…. I loved how Cole wanted to help Poppy complete Jamie’s list (see what I’m saying no man in the real world) I also loved a lot of the items on the list it was so much fun especially swimming in Jell-O and the paint fight…..
Strongly recommend to fans of romance, with a sweet story line, and fabulous characters💕
