Nicole @ The Quiet Concert - I do love the idea of seeing a past version of Disney World! I kind of love seeing a past version of anything! I’m a little scared to see how this romance plays out though…

Alexa S. - I’m so, so, so excited to read this, mostly because it’s a Disney Park-related read. I’m so glad you gave it to me for my birthday! But seriously, I think it sounds really interesting. Especially with that time travel aspect to it!

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I think I told you this, but Corinne Demas was a professor at my college and I took my first year seminar course with her. I’ll keep certain thoughts to share with you over DM or in person, but I think it’s interesting to this book because the class I took with her was called Daughters and it explored the relationships of daughters and mothers (I think it was mothers and not mothers and fathers, but the class was 11.5 years ago and I don’t really remember). I had requested this book on NetGalley and was declined, but then the publisher approved me for a few other titles on EW (including ones I was declined for on NG), but I didn’t request this one because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read a book by Demas. You make me want to read it, though.

Alexa S. - I hadn’t heard of RETURNING TO SHORE before reading your review, but it sounds like a book I could love. It’s always interesting for me to read novels that explore the relationships between parents and children (particularly with fathers), so I do love that aspect! Plus, quieter would be different from in-your-face, which is a lot of what I’m reading these days. Thanks for getting this on my radar!

Lucy @ The Reading Date - You are so right to call this a surprise gem! I just finished this book a few days ago and liked it a lot. Loved watcher the father-daughter bond develop throughout the book, and the picturesque setting. Lovely book and lovely review.
