Fast but Predictable

Ryan’s Return, by Barbara Freethy, tells the story of two families in a small town. Everyone knows everyone’s business. Or so they think. There was a fair amount of suspense but with a little imagination the end result was predictable.

Years ago Ryan left town abruptly after an argument with his father Jonas. He has a love-hate relationship with both Jonas and his brother Andrew. He’s a famous photo journalist and returns to town when he receives an invitation from Kara, the president of the chamber of commerce. The story unfolds with many secrets revealed along the way.

Ryan’s Return is an easy book to read (I read it in two sittings) and entertaining. My biggest complaint is that the storyline is highly predictable. The appearance of a ghost, however, really threw me for a loop. But if you’re ready to curl up with a light book, Ryan’s Return is for you.
