What is this novel about....
"Eve Carlisle had a singular purpose - sell the rustic house nestled in the Colorado ski resort town.
Tortured by her husband’s betrayal, the beautiful divorcee refused to give her heart to another man. But Jake had been a happy surprise, with his mesmerizing blue eyes, warm smile, strong but gentle nature – as well as being incredibly sexy.
She had convinced herself the relationship with Jake was nothing more than a fling. After all, she had a life in Newport, with society friends and a lucrative career as a family court judge. Still, Jake had a definitive hold over her, and she was finding it hard to think clearly where he was concerned.
The demons of prior failed marriages haunt them both, and threaten to end things just as they are beginning. When Jake tells Eve he is falling in love with her, Eve refuses to believe it can last. Returning to Newport, the hollowness of her existence exposed, she must confront her fears before she loses Jake forever."
What I liked from this read...
I liked how this heroine (Eve)was able to pull herself together after having to go through a terrible time with her ex husband's affair and now after six years getting on with her life. I liked the introduction of Jake (local fire chief) to Eve as they will meet and their will be an almost instant attraction between the two. Will they be able to deny this? There will even be lifes experiences that will be similar for each of these two people who were older and both divorced. I liked how this author was able to bring in the climate..(snow) that was used to play such an important part in this novels setting. "The Return" was a well written beautiful love story that will keep your attention from the start to the finish. Be ready to get a romance novel that deals with issues such as cheating, divorce and children of split families that will be addressed as you are reading through the story and even some drama, humor along with some twist that will give a interesting ending. I found the characters very well developed with such emotions as the reader is taken on this enjoyable ride that will leave you wanting the next sequel to see what will happen next in ...'Return to Newport.' Would I recommend this read? YES!
