Hilarious! I really enjoyed this short story. I loved Gertie's character, and Liam and Holly were sweet too :) The quotes at the beginning of each chapter were crazy-funny. XD

The romance moved a little quicker than I would have like, but all in all it was cute and enjoyable. Very Christmasy. <3

This is a cute and sweet little novella written by one of my favorite authors. Ms. Thompson's stories almost always have just the right amount of humor to tickle my funny bone, along with an adorable romance. While this one had both of those things, it seemed to not flow as smoothly as I was expecting. The banter between the main couple had its cute moments, but there was something holding me back from fully investing in their relationship and I'm not sure why. Lots of novellas have things movin ...more

Return to Sender was everything you’d expect in a Hallmark Movie. It was cute, funny, warm, and sweet all at once. Thompson put together a cast of memorable secondary characters. It was a fun Christmas read that I’d recommend to anyone looking for a novella to enjoy in December. I’m giving it 4 stars.

Rating: 5 stars

Holly aka Kiki receives a letter from a sweet and elderly lady at the nursing home, three miles away. She decides to give the letter back because it moved her so and ends up meeting friends, falling in love, and gaining a new family.

The novella is filled with a ton of sweet moments and funny moments; the funny moments being having to do with Old Man. If you're think

I've never met a Janice Thompson book I didn't LOVE, and this novella is no excepion. What do you get when you mix an elderly dementia patient and a young woman renting a house in a new city? Why, a romance, of course - and it all starts with a letter and a visit to a nursing home! Snap this novella up and devour it. It is a wonderful tidbit of book that I wished with all my heart was longer!

When Holly moves to Texas her whole life changes. The letter she received will change a lot of people's lives. When Holly goes to meet Gertie she is surprised that the lovely lady in front of her could of written such a wonderful letter. When Holly turns and sees Liam standing at the door she is shocked to see him. The way Holly is with the people at the nursing home is truly remarkable. Watching Holly and Liam's relationship change is wonderful. You will feel God working throughout this whole b ...more

This story will warm your heart with a person's obedience to God. If you've had a loved one reside in a health care facility, you will relate to the atmosphere created in this book. If you've never visited a health care facility, this book will encourage you to do so and will reveal the impact you may have.

Such a sweet tender story that takes place at Christmas. It has all the makings for a Halmark movie, romance, humor, good feelings. I fell in love with the characters. They seemed real. This is a book I will want to read every Christmas. It is also a great book to read anytime of the year.

I really enjoyed the short novella. It really showed how God could use a simple mistake to bring people together. This story was very humorous.

A fun story.

This was a cute story and the characters were somewhat crazy but was a good short read. I like this author so usually read her books. Never know what you will find.
