ABOUT RETURN TO YOU (Letters to Nowhere Volume 3)

How many dreams can you chase at once?

Even with bad boy, TJ, disrupting their morning workouts, Karen and Stevie’s daily battles with each other are sure to bring both of them closer to a national title at next month’s championships. It’s the kind of feud that creates winning results.

Until a fall from the uneven bars shakes Karen’s rock-solid confidence. Not only does she balk every time she so much as attempts a routine, she’s also facing all this without much support from Jordan. After receiving some bad news, Jordan’s reluctance to listen to reason causes Karen so much frustration she begins to avoid him, needing space to deal with her own issues. He needs someone to force him to make the right choice, he needs his dad to intervene and Karen knows this, but is torn between her loyalty to Jordan and her concern for her coach’s son. Even though both paths lead to the same person—Jordan—it feels like she’s choosing between two different people.

And then there’s the growing tension between TJ and Stevie. They’re obviously on the verge of either ripping each other’s heads off or ripping each other’s clothes off. It’s hard for either Jordan or Karen to tell where those two are headed. Tension is building from every possible outlet and there’s bound to be an explosion of some kind in the very near future.

    4-1/2 stars. Return to You is like a return to the Karen and Jor

    4-1/2 stars. Return to You is like a return to the Karen and Jordan we got to know in Letters to Nowhere. This installment reminds us what we love about the series -- Jordan and Karen, Karen and gymnastics, and Jordan and his shaky relationship with his dad. As things begin to heat up between Jordan and Karen, things implode with Karen and the uneven bars after a particularly cutting remark by TJ. When Jordan doesn't step up to help Karen, TJ takes it upon himself to get her back on track. There's a lot more conflict in this than in volume 2, which ups the stakes from all angles. I can't wait to see what happens in Return to Us.

    The main plot through this volume seems to be Karen's gymnastics performance and the struggles she faces. But her relationship with Jordan is a serious subplot if not a parallel plot. Now that they're together again, they take their relationship to the next level, which intensifies things. At least until Jordan get some bad news and doesn't react well to it, driving a wedge between them. There is also something going on with TJ that I'm not still clear about. The boy harbors deep, dark secrets and I have a feeling there's a lot there.

    World Building
    While gymnastics is still the focal point of the world building, the summer camp is vividly woven in, with campers, cabins, and camp activities that makes the story come alive in an exciting new way.

    Watching Karen struggle with gymnastics again after recent successes feels so authentic. It doesn't matter which sport you participate in, no matter how well you did in the past, there's always a concern about the next event, the next performance, the next race, so the fact she's doubting herself again is not at all surprising and rather refreshing. Watching Jordan deal with his issues and pushing Karen away is totally within his character and it gives us a chance to watch both of them continue to grow and develop as characters. We also get a little bit more insight into TJ and Stevie which is fun. Those two are intriguing.

    Top Five Things I Love About  Return to Sender
    1. Karen's Loyalty - To both her boyfriend and her coach. Her sense of loyalty is one of the things I've always loved about her.

    2. Jordan's Fear - Without going into details, Jordan's fear, although somewhat irrational, is just another dimension that makes him come across as so real.

    3. The Jaren Conflict - I'm not big on conflict for conflict's sake, but the tension between these two is a key plot point and really well done.

    4. The Little Campers - They provide a few moments of some much needed comic relief.

    5. The TJ/Stevie Dynamic - I can't wait to see where this is going.

    Bottom Line
    Return to You picks up the pace from where Return to Sender left off, raising the stakes and increasing the tension. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    Good Book

    I read the first novel before discovering that they were going to make the sequels into mini stories. It is a great story line and I love the writing and the characters. That said this will be my last book in this series. I feel betrayed. I got roped in with a novel and now I have to pay 3 bucks for a snip of the continuing story. I have nothing against a series of short stories like these but don't bait and switch. The first was 500 pages now these are barely 100. Shameful way to squeeze money out of your readers.

    The third installment of Julie Cross¿s Letters To Nowhere series

    The third installment of Julie Cross’s Letters To Nowhere series titled Return To You is just as engaging as the first two. As with the other two books, Julie’s writing is so emotionally charged that you feel everything the characters feel. Their pain. Their joy. Their confusion. Their loneliness.

    Julie does a fantastic job with each of these short stories (Return To Sender and Return To You). There is enough mini-story in each of these to keep you interested, while continuing the overall storyline. I really enjoy each of them so much and while I really want more once I am done with each short, I am okay with where they leave off. I don’t feel as though I am completely left high and dry. There is some closure to things or at least the hint of it.

    In Return To You, Jordan and Karen are still at camp and experience new highs and lows in their relationship among some other situations in their lives. TJ and Stevie play more active roles in Return To You which makes it quite entertaining. I still don’t know what I think about Stevie. I sense there is more to her than the tough-girl act she puts on. If anyone can pull it out of her it is TJ. I am curious about my feelings for him as well. While he says what he feels without much of a filter, he is still a bit of a mystery. I hope to learn more about them a bit in the future episodes. If you have already read the first two books in the series, you will really enjoy Return To You. If you haven’t yet, give it a try!  You will be taken on quite an emotional journey. It is a series like no other.
