Waiting on Wednesday: Return to Paradise (Leaving Paradise, #2)

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I am super excited to think about the September 1st arrival of Return to Paradise (Leaving Paradise, #2) by Simone Elkeles. You may remember how much I liked Leaving Paradise and so you can understand my enthusiasm for the follow up story. Obviously MAJOR SPOILERS for the first book follow in the summary below for the second book. You've been warned.

Maggie and Caleb just went through the worst year of their lives. Hit by a car and starting life over with a limp, Maggie never thought she would forgive Caleb. But she did-and fell in love. What they shared was real. But Caleb wanted to be free from the past-and a terrible secret: he wasn't the one who hit Maggie. So he left Paradise-and Maggie-forever.

When Maggie and Caleb run into each other in a different town, they can't deny their true feelings. Will Maggie let Caleb get away again? Or will Caleb face the truth and return to Paradise?

Whoa. That's all I really have for that one. The first book was so heart-wrenching and emotionally-charged that I don't think this one can disappoint. I am practically drooling in anticipation. What are you waiting on this week?

I am so excited for the sequel. I loved Leaving Paradise and can't imagine that the second book won't be as great.
