Reunion Pass- An Eternity Springs novel- by Emily March is a 2016 St. Martin’s Press publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Emily March is one of those authors that stays consistent, always turning out love stories that touches your heart, and leaves you with a goofy grin on your face. This one, however, has a slightly different approach, and I have to say, I loved it!

When I first started this series, I found the books light, easy reads. It didn't take long before my assessment, along with my enjoyment, radically changed. The books, along with the stories, took on much more depth. The characters were much more complex. Nope, it didn't take long before the books became page-turners that I devoured and couldn't wait to jump to the next one. I haven't found a similar series since Robyn Carr's "Virgin River" that I enjoyed so much. Yep, I love these books. They a ...more

A beautifully crafted second chance at your first love romance that will tug at your heart, tickle your tear ducts, and massage your funny. I had a delightful read with times of sorrow, tears, and laughs getting to see Lori and Chase reunite again. This was my first read from Emily March and I found something that would bring me back again.

Loir has her heart set on the world she knows and Chase had his set on the world yet to be discovered. Their first crack at love and HEA was not what was exp

Reunion Pass is book 11 in the Eternity Springs series, and for most fans of the series we have been waiting for this story almost from the very beginning of the series. This one isn’t as dark as some of her others but just as emotional; at about 30% of the way into it I was already teary eyed. Part of why I love Emily March is how she writes her active setting, Eternity Springs is written so well it almost seems to come to life as well as the people who live there. But mainly the rea

Another great story in the Eternity Springs books!! We have meet and saw the really early years of Chase and Lori's romance. This book gives us more insight to what happened to end it and what happened when they were away.

Lori has finally achieved her goal of becoming a vet. Chase has found a purpose with the photos he takes while doing extreme rafting trips and other adrenaline type activities. Lori has never really moved past the non-ending of their relationship and Chase is engaged to a fello

**** 4 1/2 Star Review ****

Wow! I was not expecting to fall in love with this book. It's nothing against the author. You all know I don't usually go for a "typical" romance book. This one sounded interesting, so I decided to give it a go. It definitely was not "typical" and was beyond what I had expected!

If you are expecting a sweet and loving read with this book, think again. This book is a tear-jerker. And if you know me, I do not say that very often. There were many parts I was covertly wipin

I've been waiting for Lori and Chase's story and now that I have it I can only say it was well worth the wait. As with all the Eternity Springs stories the characters are fascinating, real, and someone you would want as your friend. Lori and Chase first met in high school and everyone in the small Eternity Springs community thought they would be together forever. Unfortunately life got in the way. Lori is pursuing her dream of becoming a vet while Chase is exploring a new career in action photog ...more

A Happy Ever After many books in the making, childhood sweethearts Lori Reese Murphy and Chase Timberlake make their way back to each other in typical Eternity Springs style. Although I note since Emily March has changed publishers to St Martins Press the steam level has risen a little which is always a good thing in my book, LOL.

Golly gosh Emily, you've done it again. Another 5 stars. Eternity Springs is my whole life at the moment, sad I know but very true.

Reunion Pass really tells two stories: Chase and Lori’s early love and how they drifted apart, and their friendship and second-chance love after Chase experiences a truly horrifying event that leaves him damaged both emotionally and physically. In a sense, that makes it a little like Dreamweaver Trail—a deeply wounded man who tries to hide from everyone and everything, and the woman who helps bring him out of it. But Reunion Pass is different from Dreamweaver Trail in significant ways. For one t ...more

Reunion Pass by Emily March was an emotional, heart felt book that I really enjoyed. What starts out as a second chance romance evolves into so much more with an intricate, multi layered plot with believable characters who worked their way into my heart and mind. There is tragedy, struggle, hope, and love all woven expertly into Reunion Pass.

Lori and Case were a couple in the past. They were young, going in different directions in their lives, and it just didn't work out at the time. Even now it

I started the Eternity Springs series by March when it was released and while I enjoyed the series I ended up taking a break and missing some books in between but I also manage to come back to it.

This series if you haven't read it is mostly about second chances at love and healing. Each and every character has a different path they take or something they need to heal from. This story was no different.

Chase and Lori dated but while in college they were both sent on different paths of life. Lori

This book was FAR more than I was expecting. Admittedly, I have missed the last few Eternity Springs novels, but HOLY CRAP, what a way to dive back in. Reunion Pass delievered and entirely new feel to the series for me. Ms. March gave 110,000% to Chase and Lori's book and I could not be more thrilled with it.

We meet up with Lori and Chase years after she's graduated college and has become the resident vet back in Eternity Springs. She's tried to stay away. She's tried to forget him. And Chase h

At the risk of repeating myself, it was good to go home to Eternity Springs again! I just love the people there! This particular story is a little darker than earlier books in the series, and it deals with present day horrors and the effect they have on those involved. Lori and Chase were in love and in different places six years ago. She was in college and planning her future as a veterinarian, he was living his dream of photographing and experiencing life on the edge. Slowly they drifted apart ...more

Having read several of the Eternity Springs novels, I was looking forward to Lori and Chase's story. And it certainly did not disappoint! I will admit there were time when I wasn't sure Chase was going to realize just where his heart really belonged but eventually the healing magic of Eternity Springs came through again for Lori and Chase. Emily March has created a heartwarming cast of characters in her fictional town of Eternity Springs that you just can't wait to return to with each novel. Sma ...more

As always, Emily March delivered a heartwarming, relatable story in Reunion Pass - a tale of second chances and enduring love - exactly what long-time fans of the series have been waiting for. The reunion of Lori and Chase was everything I've come to expect, and hope for, from the Eternity Springs novels: deep suspense, tragic heartbreak, unfathomable brokenness, touching humor, a little bit of steam, a whole lot of hope, and, most important, healing - the central theme of every book in the seri ...more

I was so excited to read that I'd won Reunion Pass from St. Martin's Press in a GoodReads giveaway! I have thoroughly enjoyed this series, and look forward to it continuing. I don't enjoy reviews that repeat the book's blurb or give spoilers, but I enjoyed this story too much not to comment.
That noted, I have been irritated that things were looking down for Chase and Lori. Although they were young sometimes true love works from a young age and I like books that show that truth.

"Reunion Pass" (Eternity Springs Book 11) by Emily March is a fantastic read. This story will make you teary one minute and laughing the next. I absolutely loved Chase and Lori's story! This is an excellent addition to the wonderful Eternity Springs Series. Highly recommend to all fans of romance, series, highly entertaining interesting characters, love, overcoming tragedy, second chances, and so much more. I can't wait to see what happens next in Eternity Spring!

I would give this 4.5 stars. With each book I read in this series I claim that is my favourite but this is definitely top of my list right now. Lori and Chase had a thing for each other ever since he started working a summer job at a local ranch while she was still working in her mother's store in Eternity Springs. They dated both publicly and secretly when she was going to university. But she had her goals set on becoming a vet and he wanted to see the world, so they slowly drifted apart. Years ...more

Second chances romance with high school sweethearts finding love after school and life pull them apart. This would have made more sense if Chase Timberlake and Lori Reese where about to turn 30, but that they are still in the mid-twenties is too soon. They are first loves which will always get me to buy the book when I see that on the back cover, but they don't have enough time to make mistakes or become adults when they have trauma that brings them back together and in under a year they are mar ...more

Ugh! I want this to be a 5 but it’s more like a 4.5. I really loved the intensity that Chase’s story brought to the plot. The actual love story between Chase and Lori was a 5! I connected with the characters and really felt the love between them.
My annoyance came from a few of the side characters. Towards the end, there was a lot of what i feel was undeserved pressure put on one of the main characters. I realize this is a fictional world in a nearly utopian town but, in the real world, I think

**My thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is very much a second chance romance and can be read as a stand alone book.

The book is sweet and funny at times, but does explore the darker side of things with Chase going through PTSD and when he flashes back to what he experienced when he was abroad for his job.

This book is better than the last one where too much was thrown at it and mainly just focuses on Chase away and then in recove
