At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks

At First Sight is the continuing story of Jeremy Marsh and Lexie Darnell. After falling head over heels for Lexie, Jeremy finds himself doing something he never thought he would - leaving New York City to move to Boone Creek, North Carolina. In the span of a few months, his life has changed dramatically - he's moved to a small town, is getting married, buying a house, and is soon to be a father, something he never dreamed possible.

Life is not the complete fairy tale he had hoped for, however. Jeremy struggles to adjust to small town life and finds himself experiencing a severe case of writer's block, which is made worse by his constant worry about supporting his new family and paying for the renovations to their new home. While he loves Lexie with all his heart, the couple hits a few bumps as they continue to get to know each other. When Jeremy starts receiving mysterious emails questioning how well he knows Lexie, his world is thrown into further upheaval as he tries to figure it all out.

At first sight is an emotional rollercoaster  filled with love, doubt, fear, heartbreak, tragedy, and joy. If you pick this book up, I suggest you have a box of tissues as well, because I often found myself tearing up, especially towards the end of the book. I enjoyed reading this continuation of True Believer. Once again, the "mystery" that spring up in the form of emails lacked some of the intrigue I would have liked and resolved itself a little too neatly. It almost seemed unnecessary for me considering of the other problems and issues that had already arisen between Jeremy and Lexie as they began to build their lives together. I don't want to give too much away, but I will say that I had hoped for a  more complete happy ending for Jeremy and Lexie. At First Sight is another NSparks classic.
