“I left you something on the nightstand,” she said.
“You did? What is it?”
“Just turn over and look,” she pleaded.
He turned over to look, hesitantly, not wanting to look away
from her. She always seemed to disappear every time he looked away. A manila envelope lay

As Ryan Boone struggles to come to grips with not being able
to keep a promise he made to his dying wife, Larkin’s Letters propels readers into the mind of
Ryan as he struggles with frequent visits from her ghost and a series of letters she leaves
behind. Ryan worked hard to become one of Hollywood’s most soughtafter actors, but no
matter how busy or famous he became, he always remained loyal to his childhood best friend,
Larkin James. When Larkin is diagnosed with leukemia, Ryan sacrifices his career to be by her
side and in turn realizes how much he had always loved her. Throughout Larkin’s sickness,
Ryan promised that he wouldn’t let her die alone. But we learn that not all of our promises are
within our control.
My dearest Larkin. Help me. I’m drowning.
It has been almost eight months since the love of his life,
Larkin, passed, and Ryan Boone has tried to make good on his promise to her to keep living.
The letters she left behind had helped him tremendously, but all of a sudden, he felt like he was
drowning and only she could save him. The only way he could think to reach out to her was to
write her letters, just like she did to him. He never thought that she would actually get them;
after all, she was gone. But when he sees her sitting on their private dune reading his letter, his
grief would never be the same.
Ryan’s Letters, the sequel to Jax Jillian’s first novel, Larkin’s
Letters, takes readers on a journey with Ryan Boone as he struggles to completely come to
terms with his wife’s death. That struggle becomes even harder when Larkin’s ghost comes to
visit him each time he writes to her. But when Lux, a beautiful new doctor, moves in next door
and befriends Ryan, he must choose between Larkin’s visits and a potential new love.
