Waiting on Wednesday: Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" is:

Return to Paradise by Simone Elkeles

Release Date: September 1, 2010
Publisher: Flux
Age Group: Young Adult
Pages: 312

Maggie and Caleb just went through the worst year of their lives. Hit by a car and starting life over with a limp, Maggie never thought she would forgive Caleb. But she did-and fell in love. What they shared was real. But Caleb wanted to be free from the past-and a terrible secret: he wasn't the one who hit Maggie. So he left Paradise-and Maggie-forever.

When Maggie and Caleb run into each other in a different town, they can't deny their true feelings. Will Maggie let Caleb get away again? Or will Caleb face the truth and return to Paradise?

I fell in love with Maggie and Caleb in Leaving Paradise and I have been longing for a continuation of their story since I finished it and I only read it at the start of this year I feel sorry for those who read it when it was first released in April of 2007. Well three years later and my wish has been granted! I have read a couple of early reviews some loved it whilst others were disappointed, I have high expectations for this book but I’m sure Simone will deliver the goods!

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Thanks for your comment!
I agree, 2011 is just too far away, it's almost painful!

I haven't read 'Leaving Paradise', would you recommend it? I don't read much contemporary, so I'm a little wary...

I haven't read Leaving Paradise either, but I have heard nothing but good thing a about it. Hope Returning to Paradise is a great sequel.

I already have this book preordered and like you I'm excited to read it. I so hope that there will be a HEA.

I haven't read the first book either, but this sounds like something I'd like. Will check it out!

My Wow is up on my blog! :)

I have wanted to read novels by Simone Elkeles for a long time now! Especially perfect chemistry has catched my attention.
This one sounds like a great read as well. :)

I'm happy about this one too. I love Simone Elkeles, she's fantastic.

Cass said...

OMG! I didn't know this book was a continuation of Leaving Paradise. I'm going to have to read that one first before I can even think of reading this one-- and the first one is already on my TBR.

Thanks for visiting my WoW + blog. :)

Alayne said...

Nice pick. My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

Missie said...

I love Simone Elkeles and the Perfect Chemistry series, but I haven't read this one yet. I will have to check it out!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I need to read something by Simone. I think Perfect Chemistry will come first though when I do.

You should look out for TRANCE by Linda Gerber if you like Paranormal novels. :)

Christina/Book Addict said...

Great pick! I loved Perfect Chemistry so I should probably read her other books as well.
