I went into reading The Love Note by Johanna Davidson Politano with no expectations and came out the other side loving it. It’s such a simple premise with enormous heart and numerous lessons for readers about love.
“Focused on a career in medicine and not on romance, Willa Duvall is thrown slightly off course during the summer of 1865 when she discovers a never-opened love letter in a crack of her old writing desk. Compelled to find the passionate soul who penned it and the person who never received it, she takes a job as a nurse at the seaside estate of Crestwicke Manor.
Everyone at Crestwicke has feelings–mostly negative ones–about the man who wrote the letter, but he seems to have disappeared. With plenty of enticing clues but few answers, Willa’s search becomes even more complicated when she misplaces the letter and it passes from person to person in the house, each finding a thrilling or disheartening message in its words.”
I loved the writing and the secondary characters were all given a moment to shine. There are so many amazing things to love about this book. Don’t miss it and put Politano on your automatic buy list from now on!

Who else played MASH growing up? I’m a long way from driving a Corvette in my McMansion but that’s ok 😃
