Title: Return of the Runaway Bride
Author: Nancy Fraser
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Five years earlier, Emily Bennett ran out on Chase Michaels on the eve of their wedding. At twenty-two, she wanted more than the island of Last Chance Beach could offer. Intent on making a name for herself as a world-class journalist, she left to take a job with a big city newspaper. Heartbroken, Chase left Last Chance Beach and joined the Coast Guard in an effort to rebuild his life. Returning four years later for a family emergency, he decided to stay and go into business with his best friend. Emily’s returning as well. Not as the journalist she’d hoped to be but as a bestselling romance author. One of her books is about to be made into a movie, and filming will take place on Last Chance Beach and in the nearby town of Summerville. Will Emily’s return give them a second chance at the love they once shared? Or, will her ‘other’ reason for leaving put a wedge between three best friends that can’t be healed by time or intention?
A runaway bride returns to her hometown a successful romance author yet craves for the groom she left behind. They say you can’t outrun your past and Emily Bennett wishes it wasn’t true. After leaving five years ago, she’s back at Last Chance Beach. Unfortunately, it’s not only for a much-needed vacation. She’s a bestselling author and one of her books is about to be made into a movie; they are shooting on location in her hometown. Her ex is also back in town. Talk about awkward. Seeing Chase again brings back emotions she thought were long buried. Could this reunion turn into something more than a fling? Can Emily and Chase get their second chance at love, or will old hurts rear their ugly heads and sever this couple’s love forever?
Return of the Runaway Bride is a second chance romance sure to pluck at your heartstrings. I adore summer romances and Return of the Runaway Bride is the ultimate beach read. There’s sun, surf, beach, a reunion of lovers, two big secrets revealed, best friends, hot summer nights, and a second chance at love. Nancy Fraser is a gifted writer who creates characters so real, they become a part of you. She blends heart-racing romance with emotional tension with ease so the reader is transported inside the story. My heart went out to both Emily and Chase time and again. I kept rooting for them to work it out. I was so engrossed while reading, I neglected household chores and even a few hours of sleep. If you love romance, pick up Return of the Runaway Bride. If your reading jam is second-chance romance, you’ll inhale Return of the Runaway Bride. It’s the ultimate summer read. Highly recommend!
