Return to Love: The Complete Series

Cover of Return to Love Books 1-3 by New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer Skully

Laugh out loud with the complete Return to Love series!


Dumped by her husband for his former sweetheart, Roberta Jones Spivey reinvents herself. The new Bobbie Jones—new haircut, new attitude—follows her almost ex to Cottonmouth, California. The best way to show him his mistake: take up with the town bad boy, sexy Nick Angel—who’s reputed to be a serial killer. It’s all going according to plan…until murder rocks Cottonmouth. Of course Nick didn’t do it…did he?


When his sister puts out a distress call, Sheriff Braxton heads out of Cottonmouth to Goldstone, Nevada, never suspecting he’s going to have to offer advice to the lovelorn. A scary enough prospect, but when murder happens, Brax is suddenly hip-deep in small-town secrets. Then there’s Simone Chandler. Is she the real thing, or, as with everything else in Goldstone, is she Fool’s Gold?


There’s something very special about the house Maggie grew up in. It’s sort of…alive. With a mind of its own. And it has plans for the people living there now. Still grieving for her grandmother and trying to fix up a house that seems to be falling down around her, Maggie’s got more trouble than she can handle. Then things go from bad to worse when Samson the dog starts digging in the basement… The Return to Love bundle is contemporary romantic comedy / mystery.

This is Bobbie’s sexy, funny, mystery/ romance. She rocks!

This quirky, funny, sexy murder mystery had me laughing, cringing, and sighing. Roberta becomes Bobbie, after her husband leaves her. She gets a makeover and follows him to Cottonmouth, where she meets the suspected/rumored ‘serial killer’, Nick. Nick decides to play along with the rumors, and those scenes were humorous. It’s great that Nick’s POV… Read more “This is Bobbie’s sexy, funny, mystery/ romance. She rocks!”

Quirky characters; touching, sexy romance; and mysteries solved with help from a dog and a house?!

Terrific combo of romance and mystery with a supernatural twist. It’s a second chance romance rolled in with some unnatural happenings and secrets that are buried within a house. I enjoyed this as much as I did She’s Gotta Be Mine, book 1, but it is quite different than that, and I loved that Bobbie… Read more “Quirky characters; touching, sexy romance; and mysteries solved with help from a dog and a house?!”

Absolutely adorable!

She’s Gotta Be Mine is laugh-out-loud funny from the beginning and I got the warm fuzzies throughout the book reading abou Nick and Bobbie’s growing relationship. There are lots of charming (and eccentric) characters that make up the townspeople and even the villain, Cookie, is a fun character to read about. Only one point troubled… Read more “Absolutely adorable!”

I Got this Book for Free — and it is a Treasure!

I’m very glad I didn’t take the time to read any reviews on this book until after I read it.

funny, sexy, but not lacking in seriousness

English is not my first language, so this may be considered an alien view.When a novel is described as being funny and sexy, we tend easily to assume that it lacks in projecting the seriousness of life’s values. This one does not. Characters do not exist here just to be funny and to have supposedly… Read more “funny, sexy, but not lacking in seriousness”
