This book started out kind of slow for me, but I stuck with it and ended up not being able to put it down half way through. It is a good long book that surprised me in the end. I enjoyed the story line, it was very different than any other Nicholas Sparks books that I have read. It is also a good book for dog lovers.
Nicholas Sparks' books are timeless. I love each and every one. However, I would have to say this one is one of my favorites. This novel is about a widow, who receives a Great Dane puppy from her late husband to watch over her. It is an incredible small town story that will leave you in tears at the end. If you only buy one Nicholas Sparks novel, buy this one!
The Guardian is Nicholas Spark's best book, at least by my thinking. It held my attention and offered a pleasant lure to return when other things had demanded my time. Since the main character did not believe in supernatural "luck" (nor do I) I could go along with him as events unfolded with the same incredulity he experienced.
Such an amazing novel. This is my favorite Nicholas Sparks book to date. Would have made an awful movie, but as for a book it was wonderful! Very suspenseful which will come as a welcome surprise for fans.
Julie's young husband left her two unexpected gifts before he died- a puppy named Singer and the promise that he would always be watching over her. Now,four years later,twenty-nine-year-old Julie is far too young to have given up on love. She may be ready to risk caring for someone again,But who?
Should it be Richard Franklin,the sophisticated,handsome engineer who treats her like a queen? Or Mike Harris, the down-to-earth nice guy who was her husband's best friend? Choosing one of them should bring her more happiness than she's had in years. Instead,Julie is soon fighting for her life in a nightmare spawned by a chilling deception and jealousy so poisionous that is has become a murderous desire.......
This is a great book to listen too!!
