REILLY'S RETURN (4.5), the wonderful second book by one of Intimate Moments' most impressive new talents, is worth every minute of the long wait for its publication. Still grieving after her lover's death a year earlier, a small-town bookstore owner is shocked to the core one night when she returns home and discovers that he's really not dead after all. But before he can explain, the house is firebombed and they're on the run. Amelia Autin skillfully twists and turns her way through an excellent plot, providing one surprise after another in a love story of rare emotional intensity.
