Hannah's List by Debbie Macomber

This new installment in the Blossom Street series is about Dr. Michael Everett, a pediatrician who lost his wife to ovarian cancer. On the one-year anniversary of her death Michael receives a letter Hannah wrote before she died, telling him it is time for him to move on with his life and find a new love. She even provides him with the names of three women she thinks would be good candidates for the next Mrs. Everett.

This is a very quick feel good read as have been many of the other books that I have read in the Blossom Street series. However, the ending is very predictable. The characters do not have as much depth as I would have liked. I believe some of them appear in other Blossom Street stories and perhaps they are more developed in those stories. I would have liked to learn more about what makes one of the women on the list, Macy, tick. Instead I feel as though Macomber jus brushed off the reader with “that’s just the way Macy is.” If you are looking for a quick beach read that doesn’t require much thought, then this is the book for you.
