A Note From an Old Acquaintance


A Note from an Old Acquaintance

A Note from an Old Acquaintance
Brian Weller is a haunted man. It’s been two years since the tragic accident that left his three-year-old son dead and his wife in an irreversible coma. A popular author of mega-selling thrillers, Brian’s life has reached a crossroads: his new book is stalled, his wife’s prognosis is dire, and he teeters on the brink of despair.

Everything changes the morning an e-mail arrives from Boston artist Joanna Richman. Her heartfelt note brings back all the poignant memories: the night their eyes met, the fiery passion of their short-lived affair, and the agonizing moment he was forced to leave Joanna forever. Now, fifteen years later, the guilt and anger threaten to overwhelm him. Vowing to make things right, Brian arranges a book-signing tour that will take him back to Boston. He is eager to see Joanna again, but remains unsure where their reunion will lead. One thing is certain: the forces that tore their love asunder will stop at nothing to keep them apart.

Filled with tender romance and taut suspense, A Note from an Old Acquaintance is an unforgettable story about fate, honor, and the power of true love.

About the Author:
A graduate of Emerson College's prestigious film school, Bill wrote and directed his first feature film, Pawn, while still a student. After graduation, he founded Newbury Filmworks, Inc., an award-winning production company renowned for making high-quality corporate films and commercials.

In 1990, Bill relocated to Los Angeles, and began a freelance story analysis career for various studios and independent production companies, while devoting his spare time to the writing of novels, short stories, and screenplays. He is also a highly-respected graphic designer, specializing in book and dust jacket design. He has worked on books by such luminaries as: Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Dean Koontz, and Stephen King. In addition, Bill is a member of the Authors Guild.

He has won awards for his screenwriting, his two short story collections for Mid-Graders, Five-Minute Frights and Five-Minute Chillers, are perennial Halloween favorites, and his first novel, Titanic 2012, was enthusiastically received by readers. His latest novel, A Note from an Old Acquaintance was released in 2009. Bill lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Debbie, and their sons, Jeffrey and Brian.

My Review:
I love this book. It wasn't 5 star worthy but it was really good. I don't think I have a had a book effect me the way this one did. I think we all have a love that got away and this book will make you think about what might have been. But, is having what might have been a good thing? Guess you will have to read the book and find out:) It is full of surprises, heart wrenching moments and just a little mystery. I was a little off kilter at first because I am not a huge fan of romantic books that have male leads but it really did surprise me and it will make it onto my must read list:) I highly recommend that you add this to your Fall reading line up. It is a great book for crisp nights and warm mugs of apple cider.

I am not into romance books either but loved this one. I am a sap for soul mate stories though.
