Review: Waking Amy



Amy Whitfield is blindsided when she comes home and finds a note on the fridge from her husband, Wesley, stating that after four years of marriage, he’s leaving her. Amy was in the midst of trying to spice things up, to bring life back to their boring marriage. It seems now that she was too late. As Amy sits with her head between her knees, trying to figure out what to do next, a call comes from Mercer General Hospital. The ER nurse is telling Amy’s answering machine that Wesley has been in a car accident. When Amy arrives at the hospital, she finds her husband in a coma. The doctors say there is no sign of brain damage, and Wesley will eventually wake up. Relieved, Amy sees this as her second chance: the chance to get it right this time. To channel the girl Wesley won’t leave when he regains consciousness… She just needs some help to pull it off. After all, she was voted girl most likely to die a virgin in high school. Amy would never figure on getting that help from Mark Reilly…Wesley’s doctor! He’s a non-committer, too-cute-for-his-own-good bachelor, and completely the guy Amy begins falling for. It’s a race against time to see who wakes up first—Amy or her husband.

Rating: 5 stars


Waking Amy is a sensational journey of one woman who finds what she really wants in life. All it takes is for husband to leave a “I’m leaving you” note and to find him in a coma…then Amy begins to see her life as if looking at it from under a miscroscope. Amy is the the most realistic woman in all of the fiction novels I have read. Her worries, non-stop babbling, and new attraction is everything that real women face. I loved how Julieann Dove beautifully captures this and the waking moment of realization that hits Amy hard in the head, heart, and stomach.

Waking Amy is definitely a must read for all women. Readers can easily relate to the insecurities, dilemmas, and the rollercoaster rides of what marriage brings. This book, is sweet, funny, and absoultely delightful. A sexy doctor…a woman who is so close to being a nun, and a husband in a coma make for one very interesting read indeed. Julieann Dove will take her readers’ breath away with this romantic story. The plot was well-written and the characters were perfectly developed. I fell in love with the characters and was so happy at the ending. Overall, I loved reading this and highly recommend it to readers everywhere. This is one women’s fiction novel, readers can’t miss.
