The double christening of her sisters' two kids gets Holly Bennett thinking.
She would seriously love to have a baby one day, but for the first time in ages being adopted has become a stumbling block for her.
Does she want to start a family of her own when she doesn't even know who she really is or where she's come from?
With an on-off boyfriend who she's swiftly falling out of lust with, Holly decides to move back to her home town to be near her adoptive family.
Who knows, it may be the change she needs to get her life back on track - and the place to be if she wants to begin tracing her roots.
But these roots prove trickier to trace than Holly has expected.
That is, until she hires her own oh-so-sexy private investigator to take charge...

Review by shelleyraec
I've read most of Barnes books - they are enjoyable, mostly lghthearted chick lit that often centered around struggling with pregnancy, babies and marriage. I was shocked to hear of her death only just recently and Return to Sender is her last book I believe, published not long before she took her own life. Return to Sender is probably less lighthearted than usual- Holly is struggling with her mothers death from a genetic disease and the desire to find out about her birth mother that is triggered by the circumstances. Her sisters, struggling with issues of their own, are not supportive and she is not sure how to deal with that. Holly is also not sure about her long term relationship with Murdo, or her long term career plans. All the characters are struggling with something difficult and even though it finishes on a note of hope for most of the characters -a little more happily ever after for Holly - it is not a light read and a bit darker than expected for chic lit.
