Publisher's summary

If Ariana Stanton has learned anything in life, it’s that men leave. She’s been taught this lesson well from the father she’s never met, who sends her a mysterious letter once a year, to her ex-fiancé, who left her for another woman. So, when she meets the charming and seemingly perfect Jonah, she promises him they will never be more than friends. It’s a promise she can’t keep. But before he has a chance to leave her, she sends him away.

Dr. Jonah Adkinson has one regret - that he let Ariana remain convinced that love never lasts. But now, nine years later, the single dad is back in Pine Falls and on a mission to prove Ariana wrong. He’s determined to win over the love of his life. And this time he won’t let anything get in the way, not even her.

Now, not only does Ariana have to face the man she’s still in love with, but she must confront the mystery of her father’s letters, forcing her to reevaluate the past and her choices. But will it be enough to make her believe that, unlike the letter she’s always returned, Jonah is hers to keep?

AMAZING!

9 years ago Ariana Stanton made one of the hardest decisions of her life. She let Jonah Adkinson go. She broke all her rules when she fell in love with him. But in her mind, she wasn't enough for him. What mattered most was his happiness and if her past has taught her anything, it's that she doesn't have the ability to give him the love and happiness he deserves.

But now Jonah's back and he's ready to do what he should have done 9 years ago. Fight for Ariana. Fight for their love. Fight for their happiness. All these years, she's been the only thing missing in his life. His life is not complete without her in it. He and his adorable daughter, Whitney, need her more than ever. Jonah is determined to prove to Ariana that she's enough. Prove to her that she is loved and capable of loving in return. Prove to her that if anyone deserves a HEA, it's them. Is it going to be easy? Absolutely not. Is it going to be worth it? You better believe it.

*dreamy sigh*

Have you ever picked up a book and knew from the very beginning that you were going to love it? Or been so captivated that you lose all track of time? Forget to eat? Or finish a book only to have it stay with you for days afterwards? If the answer to any of those questions are yes, then you know exactly how I felt while reading Return to Sender. One minute, I'm sitting in my big comfy chair in my room and the next I'm in Pine Falls getting lost in all things Ariana, Jonah and Whitney.

Oh how I adored those three! They quickly became favorites of mine. Their journey was definitely not an easy one. They had to learn to have patience, to love unconditionally, to have courage, to be understanding of each other, to have enough strength to make the necessary changes, to have faith and hope that everything will work out the way it should in the end.

Y'all! Ms. Peel has done it again! Just when I think I've found my favorite book by her, she releases another one and I fall in love all over again. I honestly can't get enough of her books! I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!

fantastic story. narration dry.....

I loved the story itself, narration was very hard to get through, I had replay a lot of parts and almost decided not to finish but the story was so good that I made myself keep listening, which I am so happy I did. it was such an amazing story, so Arianna was so relatable, it was so great listening to her development. crazy enough I am currently working on the same things she was in therapy.

Cute story

Cute, enjoyable story. If you like closed door romances, this one is for you. Even kissing is only referred to obliquely-with a wedding kiss on the forehead! While that was odd, the story is engaging overall.

Well-written; doesn't shy away from delving into e

Story: 5 stars

Jennifer Peel's books pull you in from the first moment. Her characters are damaged, raw, real and believable. As a reader/listener you find yourself drawn into the world of the main character.

Unlike most romance novels nowadays, there is only one viewpoint, not an alternating one. It makes the book that much more believable and tense, since you never truly know what the other person is thinking.

Jonah and Ariana are so perfect for each other and yet because of Ariana's deep-seated fears and knee-jerk trauma reactions, they don't end up together.

Years later, Jonah returns to her life divorce and with his little girl (who you will fall in love with!). Ariana finally goes to therapy and begins working really hard to heal. Ms. Peel takes her time as Ariana isn't immediately "fixed" but has times when she reverts to her former ways of protecting herself by rejecting Jonah. (His family is awful, by the by...)

Wonderful surprises await as Ariana opens up to Jonah and her father and his family and allows love to be in her life...

I cried, I laughed, I worried and I was angry. This book takes you through the gamut of emotions. I feel that a large part of the connection for me was the narrator.

Narration: 5 stars

Nancy Peterson creates an atmosphere through her voice that pulls you in and doesn't let you go. Her voicing of the main characters was amazing! Her voice is dreamily low for the men, normal-pitched but varied for the women, old-sounding for the grandparents, and ADORABLE as the little girl! (I think that kids' voices are some of the most difficult to voice act believably and I couldn't get enough of Whitney and her lisp!)

*poor, **ok, ***good, ****very good, *****something special

Return to Sender/Superior Book

This book has everything! Swoony kisses, sad life stories, redeeming qualities, people you love, people you love to hate, and so much more. Nancy Peterson did an amazing job of reading these characters so well, especially Whitney! Best novel I’ve heard in a really long time. Jennifer Peel is my new favorite. I’ve been in love with books for 60 years, and now I’m in love with Jennifer Peel’s books! You don’t want to miss this one!
