In my twenties, I flew to Alaska determined to change the world. I returned home devastated, filled with fear and the kind of heartache it takes years to overcome.

Now, sixteen years later, as I hurl through the sky on the wings of heartbreak and despair, I’m desperately trying to hold myself together. Not just because of why I’m flying back, but because I know he’ll be wai

Return by Air by Tracey Jerald is a full length, stand-alone romance that gave me all the feels. It's a heart-wrenchingly beautiful story that had me in tears more than one time.
Return by Air is a excellent written, gripping story with characters I fell in insta-like with.
Kara and Jennings are both good people, they do the best they can.
The single mom and the successful bachelor share a past that's about to have some big surprises for them. I connected very easily with the characters, it's a lov

5 Her Secret Is Finally Revealed Stars!!

One thing I’ve come to love about Ms. Jerald’s writing is all the feels she evokes with her stories. This first book in her new series is no different. From the very first page I was emotionally tied to the story. Kara’s life is upended by a surprise pregnancy and she has to alter her plans on the drop of a dime because the people who are supposed to love her unequivocally prove just how callous they are so Kara turns to the one person that she’s alway

Wow! Just WOW! Tracey Jerald truly showcases her brilliance through her stories and her characters, and Kara and Jennings story is no different. Return By Air was an experience I will never forget. As I am sure I’ve mentioned in recent reviews I’ve did for this author, I am going to reiterate it again, she digs deep into an original story line and makes sure we get an in-depth view of the world she has created.

Kara and Jennings story was full of emotion, and I felt every bit. This emotional sta
Beautiful second chance romance.
I love Traceys style and her characters, so I'm really looking forward to the second book in this series. Will it be Maris and Nick? 🙂❤️

Oh wow , this story has just fed my heart and soul.
My emotions ricocheted off of each other throughout the whole read . Sadness, heartbreak, regret, laughter, loyalty , and love is what you will find in the story , and you will feel every one of those emotions alongside the characters.

Get ready to lose yourself in Kara and Jenning's story . A love story that's takes sixteen years to come to fruition..

This story blew me away , it is a 100% must read

Where to begin and what can I say? Return by Air is a stand alone second chance romance. It is a beautifully written story that definitely has ALL of the feels. Kara and Jennings will suck you into their story and won’t let go. I loved it.

This book moved me in so many ways! If it hadn't been done once (and only once) before I would have thought that it was in ways I didn't think possible. This was definitely a top 10 read OF ALL TIME!

I have known Tracey for years now and never had the chance to read any of her work. I am kicking myself from here in PA to LA right now for not having made the time! There was something really profound about this book and I think that's why it moved me so much. I really love when an author can captiv

"Return By Air by Tracey Jerold is the first book in her new Glacier Adventure series.This book took me through a mountain of emotions. Heartbreak and devastation give way to an amazing second chance love of a lifetime. Kara and Jennings met in Alaska and years later, meet there again. Only they hope the outcome will be much different the second time around.

Return By Air was a little sadder than I had anticipated - but it made me sad in all the good ways! A love story that spans 16 years, there was plenty of fodder to make me cry! Kara and Jennings' story is kind of an epic tale. Their summer love affair in Alaska when they are in their early 20's ends with Jennings pushing Kara away due to his fear of abandonment. Kara is left on her own to deal with the consequences of their affair - a pregnancy resulting in their son, Kevin. Though she tries for ...more

I absolutely adored this story and the gaggle of side characters that I HOPE HOPE HOPE get to shine in their own stories!
This book had me in all the feels, straight from the top! We follow Kara and Jennings...two lost souls that didn't know what they had been missing after they were torn apart and lived for years without each other and what could have been.

I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. This story is breathtaking and we readerers are just along for the ride. This is a second chance story for Kara Malone and John Jennings. They were once torn apart, but 16 years later a different kind of grief brings them together. John finds that he has a son, Kevin whose role is pivotal to bringing Kara and John back into each other's lives. The attraction is still there but all of the characters need to learn to trust again, in order to move forward ...more

When I think back about the books that have affected me this is definitely one of them. The emotions are all over the place. I feel like my emotions have been right through the coals. Jennings and Kara have a unique story that you must read. This is not a easy one step romance with the happily ever after; it is a fought over romance story that pushes you through every single limit you can think of. The emotions are there; the angst is real. I’ve cried over this book for my own personal reasons. ...more

The author did it again! Her books always take you on a emotional ride and this book is no exception. A excellent story about a young couple who had a great summer together. They go their separate ways, however their union created a son. Kara’s attempts to notify Jennings about his child does not work. Move forward 15 years and due to a tragic accident they are brought together again. This is a awesome story about how Jennings handles finding out he has a son he missed out of raising and ultimat ...more

This author is always guaranteed to write a story that is poignant and can make me feel all the emotions. This was a great second chance. This author is gifted in how she takes pen to paper.

The reason it doesn't rank higher was I truly never accepted her reasons in not contacting Jennings after she finally knew where he was. Especially, as she is all about giving her son everything. It just didn't resonate. Regardless, if I just ignored that and instead just focused on the rebuilding of t

Another absolutely stunning story by Tracey Jerald. This is a breathtakingly beautiful story about Kara and Jennings. My emotions ran wild with this one. I went through all the feels; sadness, heartbreak, regret, family drama, loyalty, love and lots of laughter. The love that they share is a beautiful thing. I was so engrossed in this story and shed so many tears. Keep tissues handy. Jennings is so swoon worthy. I adore this book.

Many thanks to the author and Foreward PR for an advance copy of this book. It should be no secret to any of you that I love Tracey and her work. She's an amazing author and all around wonderful person. Her latest series, Glacier Adventures, starts tomorrow with Kara and Jennings in Return by Air. I wasn't sure how to feel after leaving behind the Freeman family last year but as usual, I was worrying for nothing.

RBA is a second chance romance story. Reunited after 15 years at a memorial service,

The writing was excellent and the story captured my heart from the beginning.
The characters of Kara and Jennings were well written, I felt as if I knew them.
This story was engrossing, the characters delightful.
Slow burn romance that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster.

Return by Air is a beautiful love story based on a heart wrenching tragedy. This book had my emotions all over the place, from sad to happy. Jennings and Kara make a perfect couple but it took sixteen years to make that union a reality.

I enjoyed all the characters and the storyline was magical.

Tracey Jerald is a master at taking a symbol, such as the title of the book and spreading it throughout a story so you understand the meaning.

Not only being one of my favourite author's she knows how to let you escape from reality and takes her storytelling to a whole new level. Bringing heart and soul into every romance.
Return by Air is no exception. You are taken on an emotional journey filled with heartache, tenderness, laughter, good times and bad as you follow Jennings and Kara (and Kevin) as they get a second chance to fight for their HEA.

Return by Air

When family is reconnected by a horrible event. Losing one family member is hard enough, two at the same time is almost unbearable. When friends gather at these most difficult times, sometimes things that have been hidden for years come to light. This story will open your eyes to a beautiful story, two amazing brothers who are reaching from beyond their graves, or maybe reaching down from the heavens. A truly beautiful story of a 2nd chance love, new love, eye opening! Loved it so m

Wow, author Tracey Jerald takes me on such an emotional ride with each book she writes. Return by Air is a second chance romance, one of my favorite genres, and so beautifully written with characters meant to love.
Kara, our female lead, is a character so close in heart to so many. A woman who gives up on her own dreams to do what needs to be done. She's a woman with boundaries, acceptance issues due to "family" circumstances, a woman who tends to others while burying her own feelings and need t
