The Return – A.L. Parks
Born and raised in the Rocky Mountains, A.L. Parks has spent the last 25 years moving all over the United States. Married to the Navy – well a man in the Navy – Parks has lived in various places throughout the United States. She returned to writing seriously after a career in law. Now she resides in the Washington D.C area, and loves every minute. She has four children, and one spoiled German Shepard.
2013 marked her debut in publishing. Her first novel, Strangers, released on her 45th birthday. She was amazed at how many people fell in love with a story about two people dealing with grief, and finding love again. Abby and Bryce were the perfect couple to introduce Parks as an up-and-coming author.
Her second novel, The Return, released in December 2013. A wonderful Christmas romance, it is the first book in the Return To Me series. Book two, Return To Newport, is set to release in Spring 2014.

“No, only for women who wear red high heels following a major snowfall and bury their vehicles in snowdrifts. You’re the first one I’ve come across.”
Once through the mountains, Jake broke a cardinal rule and pushed the speed dial button for Eve’s cell phone. He never talked on the phone while driving, unless it was an emergency. Of course, in his present state of mind, it was an emergency. The only relief that would calm him was the sound of her voice.
“Hello?” And there it was—a wash of warmth coursed through him with one simple word from her.
