Product description

Product Description

A pastry chef returns to her roots and discovers that the flavour of first love improves with age.

Twenty-five years ago, Polly and Matt were in love—but their relationship came to a traumatic end following the death of her best friend.

Now Polly Chappell has moved back to her home town to open a patisserie and care for her elderly parents, and the last person she wants to see is Matt Enright. Until she actually sees him, that is…

Their attraction turns out to be stronger than ever, but both have their reasons to resist rekindling their romance—until someone attempts to run Polly out of town with escalating threats and vandalism, and Matt’s protective instincts surface.

Will the secret she keeps bring them together—or get them killed?

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely second chance romance with a thread of mystery 4 June 2016
By Marsha @ Keeper Bookshelf - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
When Polly returned to her home town after twenty five years she knew it wasn’t going to be exactly easy, but it was necessary. Her parents had reached an age where they really needed her help. The chance to open up her pastry shop and raise her teenage daughter in the small town where she grew up was, if not a great idea at least it was acceptable now.

Years ago she had run from her home town after the death of her best friend. While her death had been ruled an accident, Polly still shouldered guilt and many others blamed her as well. Matt, the young man she’d been so in love with had pretty much turned his back on her when she needed him most. Yet it had been more than two decades ago, surely they were both adult enough to live in the same town and avoid each other, right?

Return to Jacaranda Avenue is very much a second chance romance with a mystery thread woven through it. Someone doesn’t want Polly back in town and they will resort to threats, vandalism and more to insure that she does not stick around. Too much is at stake and Polly will not be frightened away. She’s stronger, and she has Matt in protective mode – she’s staying put.

I enjoyed Return to Jacaranda Avenue, especially since we have a couple who are not in their first blush of youth any longer. They may have history, but they have grown and experienced life and that reality is also brought into their new relationship. We don’t often get a “do over” in life – grab it if you can and turn those mistakes around into something good for the future. The chemistry between Matt and Polly was strong, even after all these years and that mattered, that proved that they did belong together. The mystery is wrapped up, but it was intriguing to try to figure out who was behind it all.

I would definitely recommend this one for Romance fans, and those who like their Hero and Heroine to have a few years of life experience on them to bring to the story.

*I received an e-ARC of Return to Jacaranda Avenue from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not change what I think of this novel.*

Return to Jacaranda Avenue, written by Kerrie Paterson, is the first book that I have read by this author. With that being said, I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised after reading this book.

Polly Chappell is returning to her hometown of Langbrooke for two take care of her elderly parents and to open her own patisserie. Twenty-five years ago, Polly's best friend Bron died in a tragic accident. Even though it was ruled an accident, people turned their backs on Polly and felt she was somehow to blame. Even her boyfriend at the time, Matt Enright, turned his back on her, which ended their relationship. Needless to say, Matt is not a person she was looking forward to seeing again. However, once she does see him, the memories of her relationship with Matt come flooding back. Polly realizes that although she has no interest in becoming involved with Matt again, her heart is telling her otherwise. In addition to having mixed feelings towards Matt, she has another problem...someone in town is not happy about her return, and Polly starts receiving threats.

The story that unfolds is a true delight! The characters are well written, and realistic. The author vividly describes everything, which brings this story to life as you read it. I felt the plot was interesting and the story was well laid out, and read at a nice pace. I actually liked the added suspense/mystery surrounding the threats against Polly and loved how Matt became instantly protective of her. I'm a sucker for second chance romance novels, and this one did not disappoint! Overall, I thought this was a cute and heartwarming story, and one that I would recommend reading!

I was given a digital copy of this book from Escape Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
