Editoral Review

Return to Me by Kelly Moran is a heart-wrenching contemporary romance novel that will tug at your heartstrings until the very end. With a publication date of March 3, 2015, the book has been enjoyed by readers for several years now.

Kelly Moran is a talented author from New York who has written many books in the romance genre. Her writing style is fluid and descriptive, providing readers with a vivid picture of the settings and characters she creates.

Return to Me is no exception to her exceptional storytelling skills.

The novel follows the story of two childhood friends, Brice and Teagan, who are reunited after many years apart. Teagan’s son is sick and desperately needs a kidney transplant, and Brice is a perfect match.

The two must navigate their complicated past and the emotions that arise as they spend time together during the transplant process.

The characters in Return to Me are well-developed and relatable, allowing readers to connect with them on a personal level. Brice is a charming and loyal man who is willing to do anything to help those he loves, while Teagan is a strong and independent woman who struggles to let go of past hurt.

The setting of the book is also beautifully described, with small-town charm and scenic landscapes adding to the overall ambiance of the story.

One of the strengths of the book is the way it tackles themes of forgiveness, second chances, and the power of love. Moran’s writing is emotional and raw, drawing readers in and keeping them invested in the outcome of the story.

The pacing of the book is well-done, with tension building throughout the plot until the satisfying conclusion.

However, there are some weaknesses to the book as well. Some readers may find the plot predictable, and the conflict resolution may feel rushed.

Additionally, the dialogue can be overly dramatic at times, detracting from the authenticity of the characters.

Overall, Return to Me is a beautifully written and emotionally charged novel that will resonate with readers who enjoy contemporary romance. While it may not be perfect, the strengths of the book far outweigh its weaknesses.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a heartfelt story about love, forgiveness, and second chances.
