Publisher's Summary

Matt and Liz Logelin were high-school sweethearts. The pair settled together in Los Angeles and they had it all: the perfect marriage, a beautiful new home, and a baby girl on the way. But just 27 hours after they welcomed Madeline into the world, Liz suffered a pulmonary embolism and instantly died, without ever holding the daughter whose arrival she had so eagerly awaited.
Faced with devastating grief and the responsibilities of a new and single father, Matt coped by returning to the small blog he had created to keep friends and family updated on Liz's pregnancy, which today has become a place for him to share with over a million curious readers the day-to-day of two lives bound by loss and love.
But there is more to his story than just raising a daughter alone: Matt Logelin is an extraordinary human being. Having been sustained through tragedy by the kindness and generosity of strangers, he is now dedicated to helping others in difficult situations by reaching out and inspiring those facing loss or adversity.
A heartwarming and heartbreaking story punctuated by beautifully recollected - and often humorous - memories and anecdotes, Two Kisses for Maddy unquestionably has something to offer any listener who has experienced grief, and has sought the courage to live again.

Recommended by my wife... ended up loving it!

This was a book that my wife had been talking about for weeks before the release date. I decided early on that I wouldn't be listening to it since our taste for good books has always been very different. Then one night after getting up to care for my crying 2 year old boy I decided to give it a try and see if it would help me fall asleep. After the first 10 minutes I was totally engaged and I listened intently to this story of love, loss and motivation to live. I continued listening for the next two hours and finally fell asleep at chapter 12. Excellent book! Life changing... just like my wife says. I especially appreciate the author's honest description as he retells the events.

F**k - too much

I understand that is the language he uses, heck I use it, but most of the time it didn't fit, it was like he was trying to force it in. Cute story about a dad figuring out fatherhood on his own and doing a pretty good job at it.
