Just as wonderful as the first one. Is there a third? I love what happens when these women go to the Summerhouse. You get to go back and fix your life, fix that one minor mistake that could make your life better. ( )

Amy, Faith, and Zoe are strangers to each other when they meet at their therapist's summerhouse in Maine. They are linked by hardship: Amy is recovering from a miscarriage, Faith is coping with her husband's death, and Zoe has lost her memory following a serious car accident. After Amy suffers a series of frightening dreams that leave her physically injured, she convinces the others to join her in meeting mysterious Madame Zoya, a woman who allegedly possesses the power to help people rewrite their pasts. Madame Zoya transports the trio to eighteenth century England where Amy is charged with saving a man’s life in order to positively alter her own destiny. However, Faith and Zoe are also deeply impacted by men they meet in the English countryside, and their experiences lead to drastic changes in their present-day lives. Deveraux's fluffy tale is one of friendship, magic, and love. Through dialogue and flashbacks, the reader has the chance to connect to the intersecting lives of the female characters. Like her other novels, Return to Summerhouse is a smooth read, a relaxing “weekend getaway” that never gets too deep or fantastical. Read Deveraux's companion novel, Summerhouse, for more fantasy and time travel. ( )

A perfect summer read - engaging plot, believable characters and an ending that doesn't disappoint. ( )

Jude Deveraux may write chick lit, but she does time travel well. I enjoyed reading this on a rainy Saturday when I was chilled to the bone and fighting off getting sick. Will keep my eyes open for "The Summerhouse", the first in this particular series. ( )

I was pleasantly surprised; this was very different and almost as good as the first book. Even though it's called "Return", it has almost nothing to do with the first one and can stand alone. ( )
