Savannah is an intriguing character. She starts off as a naive young girl and then we jump ahead to six years latter. Big changes in six years, she is now an independent woman coming home. I loved her growth and change from the beginning of the book. She really does work for her change.
Daniel runs hot and cold for me. Sure he has trust issues, but boy does he hold a grudge. In the end I warmed up to him, but it was a journey.
The supporting cast was super fun, especially Miss Ida. They really round out the story and make it feel like a sweet hometown romance.
The bedroom door is firmly closed. They have some steamy thoughts and hot kisses, but the smexy stuff stays off limits. It is a sweet romance with hints of spice.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Laura Jennings, who is lovely. She does a great job with the characters and keeps the accents light. She has a great pace that moves along with the story. Very soothing tone. I loved her paired with this book and will definitely look for more of her reads.
Overall, this was a really sweet read, I like a sappy romance every now and again. Nothing too deep but very satisfying in the end. I am becoming a fan of Ms Fasano's style. Sometimes you want a nice and easy romance without tons of drama. This really hit the spot!
Disclosure - I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
Nineteen-year-old Savanna did just that, feeling like her textbook life had been created for her by others. Her parents had carefully orchestrated her life and now she was about to jump into a marriage with a wonderful man, who would continue their goal-to make sure that she was provided with everything. She panicked and ran away, leaving her life in Fulton behind.
Six years later, she returns home to mend bridges. The man she left behind, Daniel, is still around, embittered and hardened by her abandonment. Will she be able to fit back into Fulton life? Will she be able to get him to forgive her?
Donna Fasano (award-winning author Donna Clayton) takes us on a journey of intense passion, exploring the boundaries of love and repercussions. Her writing is style is such that I was hooked right away, and completely invested in the love affair between Savanna and Danny. I look forward to reading many more books by this amazing author.
I read a lot of books and lately I've been jaded. I fully expect the book I'm loving to turn into something cheesy and unbelievable (kind of like Daniel in this book thought Savanna was going to disappear). I'm happy to report that this one renewed my faith in romance writers! This is the best book I've read recently.
Savanna was believable from page one to the end. I wish we'd gotten to know Daniel a little more, but he acted and reacted in believable ways devoid of the usual romance-hero histrionics. I believed every bit of their relationship and the relationships of the townspeople around them.
There were a few typos here and there and there also was one instance where the author used a word that sounded like the word she intended, but I think a lot of people won't even notice. I noticed because I'm me and that's what I notice.
Maybe I've been reading too many naughty books, but I was disappointed that the author left us outside the door for the love scenes. One instance when I thought they were having smexy sexy fun times it was revealed in a later chapter that they only kissed the one time that was "on camera" and spent the rest of the time talking. When they actually did bippity boppity, I didn't believe it until Savanna told her friend in the next chapter (guess I'm still a little distrustful after all).
My biggest complaint is that it's over. I wanted to know more. An epilogue where Daniel handcuffs her to him at the front of the church to keep her from fleeing again would have been the cherry on top of a delicious tale.
Although acting on those concerns is rare, Savanna's reasons made sense. She felt going from her parent's care straight to marriage, especially to someone like her fiancé Danny who is on the verge of joining his father's law practice, would preclude her from ever becoming independent. If only she'd thought of this sooner. Of course, had she done that, we wouldn't have much of a story.
What I enjoyed about "Return of the Runaway Bride" was the premise, since it is something many have considered, and an exploration of the potential repercussions. Although it does have the required happily-ever-after ending, getting there is far from easy. It also depicts the advantages of small town life, with their extensive informal support systems, and the disadvantages due to gossip and everyone knowing your business.
