On the anniversary of her death, her brother, Michael's best friend, gives him a letter Hannah wrote to him shortly before she died. It was a heartbreaking letter that reminded him of her love and the wonderful years they had together, but it also had one final request. She wanted him to marry again and not spend his years grieving her. She even included a list of three names of women she thought he should consider.
Her cousin, Winter Adams, who is a chef and owns a cafe on Blossom Street.
Leanne Lancaster, who was Hannah's oncology nurse.
And Macy Roth, an artist Hannah had met.
Over the next few month's he spends time with each of them, learning about them, but also learning quite a bit about himself.
This is a true love story although the list idea is not entirely new. I remember an old episode of Everyone Loves Raymond where this idea was dealt with using a great deal of humor. Debbie's version really tugs at the heart strings. The good thing is that you know that when your are reading a Debbie Macomber book you are almost assured of a happy ending. While this book does take place around Blossom Street and a few of the characters from that series make an appearance, this is definitely a stand alone book. Although I do hope Dr. Michael Everett shows up in some way in the Blossom Street series, so we can see how things continue in his future. He is truly an endearing character. This was a truly enjoyable read for an early Spring day.

Winter Adams (from the Blossom Street series) and owner of The French Cafe is Hannah's cousin. She is a strong, professional woman trying to figure out where she and Pierre, her long time on-again off again boyfriend stand.
Leanne Lancaster was one of Hannah's nurses who helped her through the last months of her illness. She has just gone through divorce, a decision she is now second guessing, and can empathize with Michael and his feelings of loneliness and grief as she is going through similar emotions over the loss of her marriage.
Macy Roth is the wild card. She's young, impetuous, carefree, and counts her three cats, a stray dog, and a crotchety old neighbor as her family. She is habitually late, stubborn, terrified of love and everything that Hannah was not.
Winter, Macy and Leanne each have issues in their private lives they need to settle before they can give romance with Michael a chance. But each of these women also has something different to offer Michael in terms of learning to find his way back to the land of living and to opening his heart to love again. Over the next few months Michael will spend time with each of them, getting to know them and often wondering what Hannah could possibly have been thinking when she picked each one. But most importantly Michael finds himself again, and with some help from his beloved Hannah, he also finds love. A moving story of three woman, each struggling to find their way in their own relationships and one mans struggle to realize that life does go on after loss and that you can find happiness again.
I am sad to say that Hannah's List left me feeling empty. Michael's grief is real, but his ungallant behavior towards one of the women on the list shocked me to the core so much that I forgot about Michael hurting. His treatment of her was so despising that I almost couldn't finish this book. I found no connection between Michael and any of the women on the list and frankly, by this time, I hoped he would be alone forever. I most definitely will not ever read this book again.

It seemed to me that this book was just thrown together to meet a deadline and make money. The plot was very thin. Characters really were never developed. All I learned about the main character was that he was a grieving widow. Hard to believe when it did not take him long at all (a couple dates) to fall in love again. Please... give me a break!
