Accountants need love too
James Winchester is content with his predictable small town life. He lives alone, helps out at his family farm, and doesn’t miss an ice cream social. His life is so neat and ordered he could use one of his accounting spreadsheets to chart his upcoming years.
Evelyn Prentiss’s world is in chaos. She’s returned to her home town twenty years after leaving and the transition isn’t as smooth as she’d anticipated. Her home needs renovated, her parents are once again too hands-on, and she only has the summer months to settle in before she starts her new teaching job.
In an effort to be a good neighbor, James finds himself stopping by Evelyn’s house more and more to help with her endless to-do list. When a mystery from their past resurfaces and opens old wounds, the two find comfort in each other. And so much more.
My Review: 3.5/5 Stars
Return was a cute and sweet story.
James and Evelyn knew each other growing up, but when something tragic happens it devastates the town and Evelyn and James.
Evelyn Prentiss has come back home and she has bought her own home that needs a lot of fixing up. That’s were James comes in. He helps Evelyn with the repairs and they slowly fall in love.
There must be something wrong with me or maybe it’s the books I read that has my imagination going wild because when I got to the part about Will and Evelyn going on a date, I kept imagining Will being the bad guy and kidnap Evelyn. Yeah I know something is seriously wrong with me.
With that said, I loved the banter and sense of humor between the characters. The supporting characters were amazing. I can’t wait to read more from Lynn and hopefully I’ll find my sinister bad guy in one of her stories.
Lynn Rae makes her home in land-locked central Ohio after time spent in the former Great Black Swamp, alongside the Miami and Erie Canal, and on the banks of the Ohio River. With professional experience in fields ranging from contract archeology to librarianship along with making donuts and teaching museum studies, Lynn enjoys incorporating her quirky sense of humor and real life adventures into her writing (except the naughty bits). She writes sci-fi, contemporary, and historical romances.
