ABOUT RETURN TO SENDER (Letters to Nowhere Volume 2)
If only summer could last forever…
Karen and Jordan might be out in the open with their relationship, but that doesn’t make it any easier for them to face events looming in the future. Like Jordan leaving for college halfway across the country. Or Karen’s win at a big international gymnastics competition setting the bar high for her future and adding pressure like she’s never experienced before.
But when Nina Jones (aka-US Gymnastics Dictator), makes plans for Karen and teammate Stevie to train at a gymnastics camp for a month—the same camp where Jordan coaches—romantic summer interludes replace their fears of being apart. Both Jordan and Karen know that when fall comes, some very tough decisions will have to be made, but for now, it’s stolen kisses, racing hearts, and whispered words.
This sequel takes place right after Letter to Nowhere ended. Karen goes to Pan-Am in Brazil while Jordan graduated from high school and will be a coach in gymnastics camp all summer.
I think this is a good sequel but it’s more a novella than a full-length novel like its prequel. I didn’t read the blurb before I read it, so I was quite surprised knowing how short it is. It made me wanting more!
Unfortunately, it also made the sequel like there wasn’t enough room to explore all of things in the story, Karen’s ability to deal with her lost, her and Jordan’s relationship, her gymnast career, his relationship with his father, and whatnot. I feel like there is still so much things that can be decribed.
However, I did enjoy reading it. I’m happy Karen and Jordan relationship is still the same, despite he has already graduated and is 18 years old now. They didn’t feel like in a rush to upgrade their relationship into second base 😀
But Karen and Stevie relationship changed here and I liked it. They surely are competitive and want to be better than each other. I liked reading their I-can-do-better-than-you attitude because it made them a better gymnast.
