"Back to You" had a sweet romance with a very real-life feel to it. It was told partially in the past and part in the present. The author did it a little different than the usual flashbacks. Each jump from Michael's early childhood, Michael and Lauren in high school and them in current day are broken up by chapters and dated. This really eliminated the confusion that sometimes happens when an author does quick glimpses in the past without clearly defining them. It also allowed her to be able to let us step back with the characters and get almost as much of the early years of their friendship as what's going on with each of them now.
Priscilla Glenn did a wonderful job of really helping you to connect with the characters and feel what they were feeling. The second half of the book drew about every emotion, good and bad. The only issue I had, and it was not a big one, was that I found the characters and scenes were not described in detail. It made it hard to picture it in my head and I really love to feel like I'm right there in every scene.
There was a lot of suspense waiting to find out where things were going to go and what happened in their past to get them to this point. It was definitely a story of friendship and love and what you're willing to do for each other. Michael also has a daughter and seeing his relationship with her after the troubled past he's had was touching. This book was just what I needed after coming off a couple of very dark books. "Back to You" was suspenseful, heartwarming and completely down to earth. This is Priscilla Glenn's first published book, but I will definitely be watching for what she has coming out next.
