    2. A nice, romantic story set in lovely Cornwall - can't get better than that!In this re-union tale, I found myself wondering just why these two people--who're obviously meant to be together--broke up. But the believable characters, a lovely setting and a good plot made the book quite charming with such a sweet ending!I think Jessica Gilmore did a lovely job with her debut book in capturing the essence of first love, and the possible failings of committing too young. I'll be looking out for more bo [...]


    3. The Return of Mrs. Jones tells the story of Lawrie who has returned to the small town she grew up. She recently quit her job, and has some free time on her hands until she finds her next job. Shortly after her arrival she runs into her ex-husband, Jonas, and somehow she finds herself working for him for the summer.Both Lawrie and Jonas were well-developed characters, and I felt that there was enough back story and character growth to really get to know them. They both had some family issues in t [...]


    4. Short, sweet, simple, and romantic are only a couple words that I would use to describe this book. I loved the characters and really enjoyed Lawrie and Jones pasts. I liked that this book was unique in its own way and there a couple surprises that I wasn't expecting. This book was well written and there was never a dull moment. This was overall an enjoyable book and I recommend you lovely readers to check out this book. 4 of 5 stars.


    5. I absolutely adored this book! It made me want to get straight down to Cornwall and experience it all for myself. Loved the cosy atmosphere of the coffee shop and the fun of the camper van road trip and festival. Lawrie was a character I could really relate to and Jonas was her perfect foil. The issues they had to overcome in order to be together again after so many years were handled with real insight and intelligence. Fabulous debut. I'll definitely be reading more from this author.


    6. "Readers will appreciate this story, which tells an age-old tale about second chances. The hero and heroine are a fantastic couple, ans many will adore their story and root for a happy ending (RT Book Reviews)". 4 stars


    7. I so enjoyed every moment I spent reading this book! I'd been saving it especially to take on my holidays with me, and it was perfect. I almost felt as if I were the one returning to Cornwall, rather than Lawrie. The relationship between Lawrie and Jonas was beautifully drawn, and I loved watching them find their way back to each other. Highly recommended - and I can't wait to read the next book from Jessica Gilmore!


    8. A very nice debut that features one of my favorite themes: reunion romance! I liked that the divorced couple had believable baggage, yet it wasn't insurmountable. They simply got married young, wanted different things, and grew apart (or "gave up") instead of fighting for the relationship. Thrown together by circumstance, they now find themselves in a better place to "fight" for that relationship and both of them give + take to get to the happy ending. A solid B.


    9. I loved this book. Fantastic reunion story. Both Lawrie and Jonas were fully fleshed out, totally real characters, their conflicts were well motivated and the writing was so smooth, the setting so beautifully done I felt like I was there with Lawrie and Jonas the whole way. In fact by the end of the book I could qute happily have driven straight down to Cornwall to meet them. Excellent debut!



    10. I won a copy of this book in a GoodReads contest and I apologize it took so long to read it. Loved the cover and loved this story even more. Such a sweet story of reunited love.


    11. Sweet and satisfying. The backstory and emotional development of both the hero and heroine unfurl gently, and the setting (Cornwall; tourism-and-hospitality) was a solid backdrop.


    12. Loved this book! Great likeable characters who felt real. I had to know what happened in the end so much that I read the book in a day!


    13. An exceptional debut novel full of warmth, charm and sparkle, The Return of Mrs Jones is a highly enjoyable contemporary romance from a writer with a bright future ahead of her: Jessica Gilmore.Jonas Jones had thought that he was going to spend the rest of his life with his childhood sweetheart Lawrie. Having grown up together, Jonas and Lawrie had seen no reason to wait to walk down the aisle and had been only eighteen when they tied the knot and began life as a married couple. With the woman h [...]


    14. Impulse buy and a new-to-me author. Didn’t quite capture my interest, though worked as a quick beachside kind of read. I think the writing was a bit too introspective for me - I’ve realised I tend to go more for dialogue and banter in my categories.
