This is a story of love beyond “death do us part”. A story of a love so strong and bonds of kinship so tight that death cannot sever them.
Josh Collins dies. He is dead for most of the story. But Josh refuses to let go of the pregnant girlfriend he loves, and she in turn refuses to let him go. Josh is forced into the torturous position of observer to the gut-wrenching heartache resulting from his death, a heartache so complete that it endangers the lives of the living. His girlfriend Avery struggles to adjust to this world without her soul-mate, but fails miserably. Together yet apart they fret over the growing baby and watch increasingly worried relatives orbit around their despair. Their friends and family fight to save Avery and the baby while Josh fights Heaven itself to get back to her.
While Avery has her circle of friends and family fighting to support her, Josh is left with only a heavenly stranger named Gabriel who struggles to follow the mandates of heaven while offering support and sympathy to the increasingly frantic Josh.
Don’t read this book without a healthy amount of tissues nearby. Once past page 3 I never read a single page without tears flowing. This book is beautifully written, its characters well-thought out and presented in such a way they are utterly and completely real. I highly recommend this book, but I can promise you I will never ever read it again. It scraped my heart raw.
The story starts out simple enough with Josh's death in an accident. Then WHAM! You are thrust into a world of pain and hurt as Avery and Josh's family learn of his death. Their story of grief is as old as time but to experience with them is gut-retching painful. Especially, from Avery's point of view. Here's a young woman who has lost her soulmate and now has to face her life and pregnancy without him. On the flip-side, there is Josh and his experiences. The pain, the sorrow, taken before his time and to watch his family, to watch Avery struggle to survive. His fight to return to her will rip your heart out. There was nothing I found predictable about their story. The cast of characters are outstanding. As odd as this sounds, the pain that everyone experiences is beautifully detailed. The ending was touching and all I could hope for.
Author Lisa Chalmers has taken me on such an emotional ride, it may take me a while to recover. If you read one book this year that makes you appreciate what you have, make that book If Tomorrow Never comes. And have tissues nearby...lots of tissues.
I received this book from JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.

I honestly can say that I've never read anything like this great debut novel by Lisa Chalmers. She's very talented, and I hope for more books soon from this author.
