Book Description

7 Jan 2014

It's been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she'd been sent home suddenly after being dragged out of a wild party-by the guy she had a crush on, just to make it more embarrassing. Obviously Mason Fletcher-only a few years older but somehow a lot more of a grown-up-was the overprotective type who thought he had to come to her rescue.

Now, returning after her aunt's fatal car accident, Lucy is learning there was more to the story than she realized at the time. Mason had saved her from a very nasty crime that night-and soon afterward, Tristan, the cold-blooded rich kid who'd targeted her, disappeared mysteriously, his body never found.

A lot has changed in thirteen years. Lucy now works for a private investigation firm as a forensic genealogist, while Mason has quit the police force to run a successful security firm with his brother-though he still knows his way around a wrench when he fills in at his uncle's local hardware store. Even Summer River has changed, from a sleepy farm town into a trendy upscale spot in California's wine country. But Mason is still a protector at heart, a serious (and seriously attractive) man. And when he and Lucy make a shocking discovery inside Sara's house, and some of Tristan's old friends start acting suspicious, Mason's quietly fierce instincts kick into gear. He saved Lucy once, and he'll save her again. But this time, she insists on playing a role in her own rescue . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Good mystery with romance thrown in. 1 Feb 2014
By Maz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has received mixed reviews and I if'd and butted before I downloaded. Glad I did. I have enjoyed a lot of this author's books and was not disapointed with this one. Its too easy to forget why you like a particular author at times. I love JAK because I know that I am going to love the characters. I don't care if they are a bit like charaters in her other books. Thats the way I like them - I am drawn to them, cheer them on and want to know that they will get there in the end. They are also the reason why I reread the books.

There is a good mystery with a little romance thrown in. It kept my interest and had me late for the school run a couple of times - yep a good book!

Although the end result is predictable, getting there was a very good read. The characters were believable, and the suspense as to who was going to do what, very good. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars At her best 26 Jan 2014
By Pius
Jayne shows her mastery of her romantic insight in this story. With a good grasp of her narrative, presentation of characters that come to live so well, and the smooth flow of her writing, River Road moved so fast that I hardly knew it when I got to the last page. Very entertaining with a plot to die for, replete with actions that leaves one excited all the way to the end of the story. I enjoyed it along with Splendid Comets and Family Man.
