Return To Life

Jacqueline Druga-Johnston’s latest release, Return to Life is a wonderful and entertaining story. This story is a romantic suspense, with a heavy dose of paranormal, which I love.
The story is about two strangers, Julian Harrison and David Colter, who after a small series of events agree to marry so he can save his inheritance. What they don’t realize is that they have been together in their past lives as well. With the help of some great friends, strange dreams, and paranormal activities, they come to realize that they have loved each other for centuries. However, unless they face their past lives head on, Julian will die, just like in her past lives. This is a funny, lively, complex story that enchants.
The author has a successful plot and great characters. There are times when this story can be confusing, but they don’t detract from the story as a whole. She tries to blend the past life aspect of the story seamlessly with the modern day part and that gets a little tangled and confusing, but for the most part it blends together really well.
My favorite part of the story is how being with each other as a married couple, changed their outlooks on marriage, especially with each other. I really liked this book and I would recommend it to people who love their romance with a dose of suspense and a dash of the paranormal.
