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.
**Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.**
Life is messy and, sometimes, it takes more courage to face what you've run away from, and that's exactly what Savanna has decided to do. She returns to her small hometown of Fulton after six years. In the interim, she has put herself through college and is the owner of a successful marketing/fundraising business. She's not a sheltered teenager anymore, but a confident young woman. That is, until she meets her former flame, Daniel Walsh.
The book explores not only fears, but also, the consequences of ones actions and how they affect everyone around you. The author does a good job of portraying Savanna. I understood her reasons for what she has done and the need to confront her past, but I did not feel the same connection to Daniel. Here is a young man who was jilted at the altar, had some unexpected things thrown his way and struggles to get through one day at a time. Adding Savanna back into the mix certainly should have added some explosive sparks to the book. Unfortunately, that didn't seem to happen. Daniel seemed to have only two emotions throughout the story: defensive or sweet, without much in-between.
The writing is clear and concise and has a nice flow to it. I read the story in two sittings, and enjoyed it. It is a feel-good story with a satisfying ending that romance fans will love.
"What's so funny?" I asked glaring at the man to my right.
"You are soooo not a girl." He says.
"WTH are you talking about?" I spit back. "The last time I checked homey...I had boobs."
"Romantic comedies and lady drinks (chuckle) You...my lovely bride are so not a girl."
"Am so!" Sticks tongue out in true 2-year-old fashion.
"Hand me your phone."
(I have to admit, this is the part where I started to get a little concerned.)
"What do you need my phone for?" I ask.
"I'm going to prove something to you."
"Look...right here. Look at the movies you have on your phone."
I (of course) took the phone in a huge huff about to disprove my arrogant husband. Yeah...no such luck. As it turns out, I am indeed a dude. (In case you were wonder the movies were "28 Days Later" "Daybreakers" "Legion" "Zombieland" and "Avatar")
Well...all of this got me thinking. I don't read enough romance. Yes...I read my fair share of "I'm a warewolf...aren't I hot" but true unadulterated romance? Not so much.Read more ›

Fun read but no real surprises. Some of the book was a bit too mushy (NOT trashy or dirty) -just fluffy, girl "think". Short, easy read without any complex story line.Published 5 months ago by J. Rosa-Mueller
