Book Blurb: Author Tess Hardwick assembles a colorful cast of endearing small-town characters and takes you on a journey that will make you believe in the possibilities of life - even in the face of overwhelming adversity and unimaginable grief.
Lee Tucker is the kind of woman you find yourself rooting for long after the last page is read. When her husband commits suicide,he leaves her pregnant and one million dollars in debt to a loan shark. Out of options, she escapes to her deceased mother's dilapidated house located in a small Oregon town that, like her, is financially ruined, heartbroken and in desperate need of a fresh tart. Lee's resilience leads to a plan for a destination restaurant named Riversong, to new chances for passion and love, and to danger from her dead husband's debt as her business blooms.
A surprising mix of romance, humor, friendship, intrigue and gourmet food, Riversong entertains while reminding you of life's greatest gifts.
My Thoughts: This review is hard for me. I have had to take a lot of time to think about how to do this review. I have read all the ratings on goodreads and other sites. This book has received excellent reviews on all the sites. This book wasn't for me, as every book isn't for everyone. I do not want to discourage anyone from reading this book and write anything negative. When I read the blurb for this book, I was very interested but as I sat down and read the book, I just didn't enjoy it. So, I instead of writing anything negative, I want to list links to other who have read this book and loved it. I am also having a giveaway for this book, because I do want to share it. I think most of my readers would enjoy this book.
