Return to Paradise

by Laina Villeneuve

Do you believe in destiny?

Guest-ranch manager Madison Carter certainly does. Abandoned as a small child, she knows little of her past but is convinced that uncovering it will lead her to healing and home. On a journey of self-discovery to the town where she was born, she meets Lacey McAlpine. The self-assured, straight-talking entrepreneur Lacey is blessed with loving family and friends and has always shaped her own destiny—or so she believes.

The sparks fly almost immediately, but the women’s contrasting personalities and what Lacey perceives as Madison’s secretive nature keep them from igniting—just yet. Their friendship deepens to passionate romance, however, when Madison moves into town to open her own guest ranch—and begins to open up about herself.

A lock without a key, a box of childhood treasures and a scruffy white horse begin to illuminate Madison’s shadowed past. Despite her Miss-Fix-It attitude, Lacey will soon learn that it will take a little destiny to repair a broken soul.

  1. catherine from Woodland Hills

    I loved the way this book unfolded – like a conversation with a best friend. Maybe it is the dual first person narrators, but the story assumes a level of intimacy with the reader that will draw you into the story. Madison and Lacey are real people who just happen to be in a book and very good company at that. But my favorite character had to be Houdini – you just have to read the book to find out he is. Oh and wait for the wonderfully clever love making scene. My first Laina Villeneuve novel; certainly not my last!

    The dynamic between the characters is great. The horse is a great addition to the character list. You fall in love with the characters and want them to get together despite the barriers. I highly recommend it!
