Publisher Description

From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new second chance standalone love story.

At eighteen, I walked away from Willow Creek Valley for good.

I was young, scared, and stupid, and it cost me the love of my life—Grayson Parkerson.

Fourteen years later, a crash sends me back home to recover.

Back to where we met, fell in love, and planned a future.

The one he’s now living as a single dad to his daughter.

Working at The Park Inn together gives us a chance to reconnect, and seeing him with his little girl makes me long for the days when he was mine. One look in his gorgeous blue-green eyes, and it’s like I never left. One kiss, and my world is upside down. One night together, and I know without a doubt, in his arms is where I belong.

I’m not the girl I was—intimidated by his wealthy family and desperate to escape our small town. I can imagine a new life for us here. 

But he’s learned to guard his heart, and trust won’t come easily.

How can I convince him to give first love a second chance?

A beautifully written second chance romance!

Return to Us is book #1 in a new series by Corinne Michaels, called Willow Creek Valley. I absolutely loved this beautiful second chance love story. Grayson and Jessica share such a unique connection. Their love poured off the pages. Neither forgetting the other even through several years of separation. Jessica is a survivor, she has been through so much, and her resilliency knows no bounds. Grayson is a single dad, to the most adorable 4 year old, Amelia. She captured my heart right from the start. He is loving, protective and the sweetest man. However, it is not instant family for this couple. The two had their work cut out for them, obstacles and hearts to mend but once they do it is beautiful and epic. This story has so many beautiful layers to it. Ones you just have to experience for yourself. It will make you laugh, cry and feel so much. As a beloved fan of Corinne's Arrowwood Brothers Series I loved that there were a few cameos of some favourite characters and I cannot wait for more to come in this series, especially Stella and Jack's book after that epilogue. Corinne has done it again. 5 stars is not enough!

Return to Us

"Take the hand outstretched when you’re weak and let it lend you strength."

Return to Us is a captivating second chance romance that pulls you in and holds on from the very beginning.

Grayson and Jessica were high school sweethearts who thought they would be together forever until she walked away to try and save both of them. Jessica returns home to recover after a plane crash ends her career. Greyson still lives in town raising his little girl. As their lives intertwine again there is hope brewing to put the past behind them and return to what they once were.

I laughed, cried and grinned from ear to ear. Grayson and Jessica never stopped
loving each other. Grayson's daughter Amelia is the most adorable little girl
ever. The secondary characters are great and make me excited for more from the series. The unexpected twists were quite a shock as well. This was my first Corinne Michaels book and I am wishing I had read her books sooner and look forward to catching up on her books.

Audio: Sebastian York and Andi Arndt were the perfect voices for Grayson and Jessica and the two made the perfect couple.
