A New "MUST READ" - Two Kisses for Maddy by Matthew Logelin

Thursday, May 3, 2012
Good morning!!

 So, I FINALLY finished "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets' Nest". I had heard such rave reviews on this book that I think I may have set my standards a little too high... typical right? Well, I enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as the first two. I was very happy with the ending though. It is a true tragedy that the author passed away and he didn't even get to see the success of his books. All in all, I would recommend this series.

I started my next book, which is already amazing and I am only 1/3 of the way through. I have already felt every emotion possible.  It is called "Two Kisses for Maddy" by Matthew Logelin. It is a memoir of loss & love. Be prepared to cry.

About the Book

Matt and Liz Logelin were high school sweethearts. After years of long-distance dating, the pair finally settled together in Los Angeles, and they had it all: a perfect marriage, a gorgeous new home, and a baby girl on the way. Liz’s pregnancy was rocky, but they welcomed Madeline, beautiful and healthy, into the world on March 24, 2008.
Just twenty-seven hours later, Liz suffered a pulmonary embolism and died instantly, without ever holding the daughter whose arrival she had so eagerly awaited. Though confronted with devastating grief and the responsibilities of a new and single father, Matt did not surrender to devastation; he chose to keep moving forward– to make a life for Maddy.
In this memoir, Matt shares bittersweet and often humorous anecdotes of his courtship and marriage to Liz; of relying on his newborn daughter for the support that she unknowingly provided; and of the extraordinary online community of strangers who have become his friends. In honoring Liz’s legacy, heartache has become solace.
