Maggie wants to bury her past and move on. Josh has other plans, and moving on without her isn't one of them.

Maggie Mitchell returns to her hometown of Silver Bay expecting to bury her father, her past, and move on. But when Josh Harden, her high school sweetheart, shows up, her world gets turned around.

Drawn to Josh, but afraid of their history, Maggie’s head tells her she can handle things alone, but her heart says otherwise.

Recognizing a second chance when he sees one, Josh is determined to win Maggie’s heart once more and show her that she can trust love and begin again.

Return to Silver Bay is the first Lara Van Hulzen story I’ve read.

Maggie’s world turned upside down when she discovered letters written to her now-deceased mother. Letters hinting at a secret, which leads her to talk to the town eccentric. I loved how Maggie’s perception changed as she was willing to take a chance on trusting Gwen and how their lives changed so dramatically.

And I admired Josh’s patient love for Maggie. And how he had never been intimidated by her dad – his sole concern being Maggie’s well-being. He was so kind and respectful towards her.

This first Silver Bay story shows the promise of more tender romances to come. I’m looking forward to learning more about this sweet community of friends in upcoming books!
