Poppy Maysen carries a journal in her purse. Its pages were filled long ago by a man who craved adventure, lived life to the fullest and never failed to make her laugh. The journal is his birthday list—one she vows to complete.
She’ll do the things he wanted to do most. Because maybe, just maybe, if she can finish his list, she can start to live again.

The Birthday List was a really good book to read this year! Devney Perry writes really good series, and I always finish them as soon as they release.
Poppy Maysen lost her husband at 25, after only 1 year of marriage. Jamie Maysen is killed on a robbery and his killer was never found. After 5 years of grieving, finally she starts to live again. Jamie was doing a birthday list and not Poppy wants to finish it. So far, she has gone skydiving and opened The Maysen Restaurant.
Every check on this list is so hard for her, especially when she attends a karate class and discovers that her Sensei is none other than Cole Goodman, the cop that came to deliver the news on her husband’s death.
This book will be good for everyone that has dealt will loss, and it teaches us how to move on and live. While completing this list, Cole is by her side, waiting for her to heal and give him a chance. It was beautiful watching how they fall in love.
Cole will help her with the guilt by discovering her husband’s murderer.
To keep it short, this book had my emotions all over the place and it also prepared me for Molly, Devney Perry’s next character in the book Letters to Molly. Can’t wait to read it.
