Chasing River is a book I’ve been looking forward to since I met Amber in Burying Water. Amber Welles is Jesse Welles sister. When I first read that book, I liked Amber straight away. Amber’s a good person, a good daughter, sister and she’s a nurse. She has been working and saving money for a long time to take a trip of a life time. She’s going to spend a few months overseas. Do it while she’s young and can travel and see the world. One of Amber’s destinations is Ireland. She’s not been there long, and she gets run over by a stranger. A stranger who ends up saving her life. What a meeting ;)
River Delaney has made mistakes in the past, but he’s also a good person. He works hard to run his family’s pub. He cares a lot about his family- which is the only reason he was at that park where Amber was. River may be a good person, but his older brother is not. River is stuck in a hard place of protecting his family or doing what he feels is the right thing.
Amber was a great character. She always tries to do the right thing, she has a caring heart, and I love that even though she was a stickler for the law and the right thing, she wasn’t judgmental about it. I also liked River’s character a lot. Yes- he’s got a bit of a past, but he is deep down a good guy. He knows he’s not good enough for the likes of a girl like Amber, but that doesn’t mean he won’t try to be. That line right there is probably my favorite of the book- I just love it!
“You’ll never be good enough for my daughter.”
“But I’ll never stop trying to be.”
Chasing River is another wonderful addition to KA Tucker’s romantic suspense series. These books aren’t your traditional romance stories. I think it’s nice to every once and a while read something different. I loved that the book was set in Ireland and that there was so much history incorporated into the story. I also liked that the romance was more of a slow build. This story has lovable characters, mystery, suspense, love and fantastic writing. I think anyone who's read and enjoyed the first two books of this series would enjoy this as well. And if you haven’t, I highly recommend you jumping straight into Burying Water- it’s a favorite of mine!
About CHASING RIVER:
Armed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.
Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.
Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.
And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.
And don’t forget BURYING WATER and BECOMING RAIN, the first two books in this thrilling series…
