.: Nicholas Sparks : At First Sight :.

Is love at first sight truly possible?

There are a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: he'd never leave New York City; never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage; and most of all, never become a parent.

Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the birth of their daughter. But just as his life seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, an unsettling and mysterious message re-opens old wounds and sets off a chain of events that will forever change the course of this young couple's marriage.

Like the first book I read (The Wedding), this book is written in first person style, of both Jeremy Marsh and also Lexie Darnell.

The story of how they met and fell in love is written in True Believer.

In At First Sight, the plot continues on how this young couple journey as newly weds and expecting their first child together.

It's something many could related to - married, newly wed, or those in a relationship. This novel captures all the heartbreak, tension, romance and surprises of their relationship. It's also captures their struggle to adjust to one another when they have only known each other for a short while before they were married. They have so much to learn about each other. There's love, friendship, devotion, sacrifises, trust... but in it, there's also anger, jealousy, deep sadness, betrayal....

Nicholas Sparks did very well in bringing his readers to experience the emotional roller coaster ride Jeremy and Lexie are experiencing.

And,just like The Wedding, Nicholas Sparks added a very sharp twist to this romantic tale at the end.

Do read it, with a box of Kleenex in hand.
