Sometimes in life it feels like everything that can go wrong does, but everything happens for a reason. A relationship crumbles so someone else can mend the pieces of your broken heart. A change of plans can lead you to something you didn’t even know you were missing. We help others and discover that it was us who needed to be helped all along.

Jenn’s life is nothing as she had imagined it would be. She is twenty-something with a failing career and her love life has officially ended with an ultimate act of betrayal. She is ready to throw away her dreams when a chance run-in with a soldier, dealing with his own misfortunes, altars her course and changes her perspective on life.

Everything happens for a reason.

Natalie’s Review – 4  Heartwarming Stars

“She was gravity. She was the light in the darkest of my days, and her smile ignited a flame inside of me that had gone out a long time ago.”

Teresa Mummert has created a beautiful heartwarming story that you will fall in love with. 

We first met up with Jenn and Shane, as they are each struggling with the aftermath of failing relationships. Jenn has had it rough; an arrogant ass of an ex, a sister that I would have punched in the face if she were mine and parents who offer no sympathy and just don’t understand her. 

Shane hasn’t had it any better, having been dumped by his fiancé while fighting in Iraq. Coming home on leave not sure what to do or where to go Shane decides to stay with his cousin Jake in Maine. 

Jenn and Shane are both lonely and neither are looking for love but when they meet you just know it was meant to be. The slow build of their relationship was natural and allows you to really connect with them. The supporting characters and side stories with Shane’s cousin Jake and friend Owen’s were realistic and only enhanced my love for Shane. Facing their pasts and moving on Jenn and Shane will make you smile and fill you with hope.

Suicide Note was such a lovely story that I would definitely recommend it to others.

I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Author Interview
Suicide Note has a much different feel than your other books; it feels softer and sweeter.  What was your inspiration for the story?

I have been a military wife for nine years. I wanted to really show what it is like for some of the men and woman who fight to defend our country. 

 
 As we all know you are an Army wife and looking at the reviews of Suicide Note so many of them have commented on how realistic this book is. Was Shane’s character based on a soldier you know?
 

No. There is no Shane Tudor. I did take a lot of real life stories I have heard from my husband as well as other soldiers and incorporated bits and pieces into this novel. 

 
Our blog Love Between the Sheets is made up of three sisters. In the book Jenn’s sister Gail committed what most would consider the ultimate betrayal. If one of my sisters did this I think I would kill them. Do you have any siblings and if so what would you do if they acted like Gail?
 

I have two sisters and a brother. I would have to agree that there is no coming back from that sort of betrayal. I couldn’t even begin to imagine what that would be like. 

 
I love the pictures you have posted on Facebook with real actors that represent the characters in Suicide Note. If someone was to write your life story what actress would you choose to portray you in a movie?
 

Hmm… That is an interesting question. I think I would chose Emma Stone. We look nothing alike, but we both have a very sarcastic sense of humor. 

I love that the male characters in your books have strong alpha personalities. They all want to protect the women they love. If you had to choose just one as your all time favorite to write who would it be? Shane (Suicide Note), Tucker (White Trash Beautiful) or William (Honor series)
 

That is tough. I think would choose Shane. I really enjoyed writing his story.

 
As we eagerly await the release of White Trash Damaged do you have any other books in the works that you can share with us?
 

I have lots of projects going on. I hope to release Perfect Lie very soon. It is the story of a high school girl who is an outcast. She becomes fast friends with the new boy but the popular girl who bullies her wants him as well. 

About the Author

I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney’s Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn’t resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I’d like to tell you a story.
