I listened to the book on CD and once I heard the twist at the end, I said through my tears... this will make such a great movie... and a month later I heard they were making the movie!!! I called it and I am so thrilled with how it turned out. It was only slow for a moment and the music and scenery pulled me right back in. Love Love Love everything about it!

I didn't feel it was necessary to reveal the friend she made was actually the ghost of his wife. It turned what seemed to be a great romantic tale into some weird ghost story. And it changed how I felt about the entire film.
Otherwise, the movie was great. I felt the two leading actors had great on-screen chemistry and the characters were well developed.

Great movie. Did not exactly follow the book, but the main story held true. There was definitely good chemistry with Julianne and Josh.I was not disappointed.

A nice romantic movie with a bit of drama and suspense. Blended families with adolescents in the house may find this to be a good movie to see and then discuss certain intricacies as well. Overall, my wife and I enjoyed this movie quite a bit and recommend it for all viewers.

They changed several things from the book, which always annoys me. However, I just love Josh Duhamel and he is reason alone to see the movie! :) Plus, as an added bonus, Julianne Hough was quite delightful. I have never seen her in anything before and I really liked her.
I can see where people who are not fans wouldn't much care for this movie, but I thought it was worth it since I had invested time in the book and I kept up with the hype on the Safe Haven Facebook page. I'm a sucker for a good romance. :)
