Review: Riverside by Tess Thompson + GIVEAWAY @tesswrites

River Valley Series

By: Tess Thompson

Riverstar (The River Valley Collection #3)

After ending an affair with a married movie producer, feisty Hollywood makeup artist Bella Webber finds herself back in the quaint Oregon town of River Valley, the location of a famous director’s latest film. Despite trying to distract herself with work, Bella is unnerved by the proximity of Benjamin Fleck – a man who once so expertly made love to her she’d temporarily forgotten everything painful about her life. But now Ben sees her as nothing more than a heartbreak waiting to happen.

When an actress is found murdered after she’s seen leaving the restaurant Riversong with Ben, he is accused of the crime and arrested. Convinced of his innocence, the River Valley ‘gang of misfits’ band together to find the real killer, and Bella must face her biggest fear to ensure the truth is revealed.

My Review:

Suspense in a story is quickly becoming another part of the romance genre i'm liking along with the fantastic author Ms. Tess Thompson.  Readers, she has truly done it again !!!

Another star is born with this book.  Riverstar is book 3 in The River Valley Collection and River Valley is another town I've absolutely fallen in love with!

Ms. Thompson has held fast to creating unforgettable and amazing characters that readers can't help but fall in love with.  It's so easy to feel what each character is going through and it really makes the book mean so much more!  

It's nice to have Bella & Benjamin finally get their chance, even after all this time and everything they had to go through.  I really believe it just makes a relationship so much stronger when two people can find a way to stand by each other and make it through the bad stuff without giving up.  

Will there be a book 4?  Boy do I sure hope so :)

Thanks to Author Tess Thompson for such a great series.

5 stars well deserved !!
