Once again Soraya managed to captivate my heart with her story. Jessica became penpals with a soldier overseas. His name is Ryan and their friendship blossomed through snail mail. They confided in each other and basically was there for one another in time of need. Their letters helped them overcome obstacles in each of their lives. Him being overseas fighting for our country but also grieving the death of his wife and Jessica fighting for her health. By reading this book, Soraya in her own way ...more

THE ARMY RANGER’S RETURN by author Soraya Lane is from the M&B Cherish line.

Jessica joins a pen pal program and starts writing to a soldier, while she is undergoing cancer treatment in hospital.

Ryan’s letters give her strength. As he is unaware of her treatment, on paper at least he treats her as a normal girl.
And Jessica’s letters give Ryan the strength to face coming home and being a dad to his grieving motherless son.

Meeting at last, they realize they had a stronger bond between them.

The first time I read one of Ms. Lane’s books, I decided to choose the one with the cheating hero. Surprisingly, things turned out well and I ended up enjoying the book. So for my second book I decided to once again step out of my comfort zone and go for the one with the widower.

Can there be ‘love before first sight?’ Jessica Mitchell has spent a year exchanging letters with US Army ranger Ryan McAdams. Their first meeting – predictably – gives her a lot of anxiety. There aren’t just doubts about him – but she is full of self-doubt, as well as concealing a secret.

The wonderful thing is, each of them, through their letters, gave the other something to look forward to. The letters are cleverly shared, revealin
I have mixed emotions about this book. Cancer is a horrible experience for anyone. Deployment is hard on even the strongest of families and relationships. As serious as the subject matters this book packs a lot of content into a small binding.

I really enjoyed this story. The idea of pen pals and supporting our troops. Jessica and Ryan- what a couple. It is nice to read about HEA and glad that George fit in so well. I felt every single kiss as if I was Jessica.

Cute story and easy read. It's pretty predictable but if you're just looking for a book with a happy ending then this will fill that request!
