Review: Returning Home by Kelly Elliott

Buzz Bait


News on the docks is Adelaide Bradley is back in Seaside, and rumor has it she’s here to stay! (No ring was spotted on her finger, I might add!) After eight long years of living in the big city and working for Massachusetts General, she has decided to return to the shores. One can only imagine how thrilled Barbara and Keegan are to have their oldest daughter back.

But it makes you wonder if Adelaide will continue to peruse her nursing career or is she here to help at her family’s restaurant, The Seaside Grill.

A little seagull has planted in my ear that Gannon Wilson is taking the news rather well, considering Adelaide broke his heart all those years ago. I did notice Gannon has been working more than usual, piloting that precious cargo through our ship channel. Maybe he is picking up extra hours to purchase a piece of jewelry, considering he was seen in Reef Jewelers only days ago.

We’re rooting for the two of them to reunite at least as friends. Everyone knows the former homecoming king and queen had a bright future ahead of them until…well…that’s another story for another issue, Seasiders!

Fair winds and following seas!

Returning Home is the first book in the Seaside Chronicles series and is a sweet and satisfying return-to-hometown romance. Get ready to experience small-town romance as only Kelly Elliott can do it. With steamy romance, small-town feels, and light drama, Returning Home is sure to find its place in heart of romance lovers.

Losing your first love is never easy. Addie and Gannon met in their freshman year of high school and knew that the love they shared was one for the books. Not wanting to give up on their dreams, Addie and Gannon decide to break up and decide if it’s meant to be, they’ll find their way back to each other.

Addie and Gannon’s story was one for the books. I loved how genuine their feelings were for one another and how their love withstood the time they were apart. From the first time you meet Addie and Gannon, you could tell they were meant to be together. I loved seeing them grow and pursue their careers and ultimately find their way back to where they were meant to be.

Now no love story is 100% perfect, and Gannon and Addie did have some light drama and small-town gossip to contend with, but they didn’t let the drama take over and destroy their love.

In the end, Returning Home was just the sweet romance that I was hoping it would be. It gave me all the small-town and swoony feels I was looking for. Not to mention, it perfectly sets up the next book in the Seaside Chronicles series. I for one can not wait to find out what happens next.
