The first book in the Return to Whispering Oaks series is packed with honest emotions, family dynamics, and uncertainty. Anne and Jack have a complicated relationship, as they actually liked one another while in high school, but feelings left unspoken and an unforeseen event kept them from ever being together. It has now been twelve years since they last talked in person, and she just wants them to be polite to each other and hopefully not come in much contact. But circumstances are not in her favor, as it seems his assistance is often needed, thus forcing Anne and Jack to interact over and over again. How they respond to the many situations that develop is always realistic, and their sincerity frequently affected how I felt about the episodes.
I found the many events taking place in ANNE EVER AFTER to be believably conceived and then depicted with true-to-life occurrences. Lynne Marshall made some moments joyful and fun, while others are very serious with no guarantees as to how they will end up. One incident in particular had me fretting over its outcome. The family of Anne plays a big role in the storyline, from the injuries of her parents to what is happening with her brother and sister. There is even a next-door neighbor who could be important in a future book, and I really hope this is true.
This story was so heartwarming, tender and sad all in one. Anne Grady is a nurse who is back in town as her parents were injured in a motorcycle accident. She is the only one of the siblings who can come home to care for them, at least until her brother Lucas gets out of the military. She left shortly after high school for college and never came home. She was heartbroken that the boy that she had fallen for was the boyfriend to her BFF. Jack Lightfoot and Anne were good friends and hung out together but he started to date Brianna. The angst that basically Anne when through was one that seemed so realistic, I felt that I was right there with her. I wanted to put my arm around her.
Jack was also tormented but he was able to come to terms with the history of himself and Brianna and Anne.
There were some really great scenes. Some of lines that were so touching, some extremely funny and others thought provoking. I really hated to see this end. I adored the dual POV format. I really felt like I was right there. I hope that there will be more to this series like maybe Anne’s brother Lucas and the cute neighbor next door!
This is a sweet, clean romance for the most part. There was a part where the author did an almost fade out and basically stated something like their “coming together” (NOT IN THOSE WORDS BUT YOU GET THE DRIFT). There were some kissing scenes.
