Review & Giveaway: Dear John by Nicholas Sparks Audiobook



John enlists in the Army and meets Savannah while on leave. She is working with Habitat for Humanity and he captures her admiration after saving her drowning purse. They are complete opposites. He has one-night stands, she's saving herself. He drinks, she doesn't. None of that matters, they have fallen deeply in love.

When John returns to duty, Suzanne misses him like crazy. Her friend Tim is desperate to have her for himself. When John re-enlists after the 9/11 attack, Tim might just get his wish.

Nicholas is a natural-born romance writer. His characters always seem to have the perfect amount of chemistry. My husband was in the Army after 9/11 and I could really really relate to Savannah.
