Return Of The Runaway Bride by Donna Fasano
Length: 5 hrs and 42 mins
Publisher: Donna Fasano
There lived a lovely young woman named Savanna who was engaged to Daniel, a handsome law student. Theirs was to be a fairy-tale wedding. But Savanna’s second thoughts were too big to be ignored, so the would-be bride ran away.
As the years passed…
Daniel’s heart turned to ice. It was this unfeeling man that Savanna faced upon her return. The love of her youth was now a stranger. Could Savanna ever make Daniel understand why she abandoned him? And could she convince the man of her dreams he would always be her Prince Charming?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a really sweet reunited lover tale. It has a real sense of strength in the main character. Such a heartwarming read.
Savannah is an intriguing character. She starts off as a naive young girl and then we jump ahead to six years latter. Big changes in six years, she is now an independent woman coming home. I loved her growth and change from the beginning of the book. She really does work for her change.
Daniel runs hot and cold for me. Sure he has trust issues, but boy does he hold a grudge. In the end I warmed up to him, but it was a journey.
The supporting cast was super fun, especially Miss Ida. They really round out the story and make it feel like a sweet hometown romance.
The bedroom door is firmly closed. They have some steamy thoughts and hot kisses, but the smexy stuff stays off limits. It is a sweet romance with hints of spice.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Laura Jennings, who is lovely. She does a great job with the characters and keeps the accents light. She has a great pace that moves along with the story. Very soothing tone. I loved her paired with this book and will definitely look for more of her reads.
Overall, this was a really sweet read, I like a sappy romance every now and again. Nothing too deep but very satisfying in the end. I am becoming a fan of Ms Fasano’s style. Sometimes you want a nice and easy romance without tons of drama. This really hit the spot!
