Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Debbie Macomber’s books have such a lovely feel-good factor to them, they may be predictable but reading one is like slipping on an old pair of slippers and snuggling down in your favourite chair – just warm and comfortable and safe. This one concerns a grieving husband having a bad time coming to terms with his wife, Hannah’s, death. On the anniversary of the death his brother-in-law gives him a letter from Hannah. She is encouraging him to move forward and gives him the names of three women she thinks should be able to help him – and so we follow his relationship with each woman.

Comparison: Danielle Steel.

If you like Debbie Macomber you might also like to read books by Nora Roberts, Anne Worboys and Jane Lovering.

Hannah's List by Debbie Macomber

Dr. Michael Everett has been inconsolable in the year since his wife Hannah died of ovarian cancer. Unable to carry on living any semblance of a normal life without her, Michael filled his empty days with work. So he is shocked when a year after her death, his brother-in-law, Ritchie, gives him a letter Hannah had written before she died ready for the first anniversary of her death. In it she reminds him of her love and makes one final and almost impossible, request: she asks Michael to marry again and become the father he was meant to be. Knowing his reaction, Hannah gives him a gentle push by suggesting three women—each of whom, she says, would make an excellent wife and companion. Michael’s heart isn’t in it, but he decides to carry out Hannah’s final wish by contacting each of the women. He soon discovers that he is not the only person dealing with a broken heart.

The first woman on Hannah’s list is her cousin, Winter Adams, owner of the French Café on Seattle’s Blossom Street. The second is Leanne Lancaster, the oncology nurse who cared for Hannah in her last months – Michael knows them both. But the third is somebody he is not familiar with, artist and model, Macy Roth — artistic, spontaneous, eccentric and always late for appointments. Michael can’t believe Hannah added Macy to her list; the only way he’d fall for her is if opposites really do attract. But as he spends time with each woman, Michael realizes that Hannah’s list may end up saving four lives, not just one.
