River Road

by Jayne Ann Krentz

Penguin Publishing Group | January 7, 2014 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

River Road is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
A quintessential Jayne Ann Krentz romance—the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Dream Eyes and Copper Beach.

Thirteen years ago, Lucy Sheridan was dragged out of a wild party by the older guy she had a crush on. Now, returning to Summer River in California’s wine country after her aunt’s fatal car accident, Lucy is learning there was more to the story than she realized. Mason Fletcher saved her from a very nasty crime that night—and soon afterward, Tristan, the cold-blooded rich kid who’d targeted her, mysteriously disappeared…

A lot has changed since that long-ago summer. Lucy is now a forensic genealogist, while Mason runs a successful security firm with his brother. And when he and Lucy make a shocking discovery inside her aunt’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.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive mix of murder mystery and romance I didn't discover Jayne Ann Krentz-Jayne Castle-Amanda Quick until just a few years ago. My sister had been reading her for years and finally persuaded me to give one of the Arcane Society books a try. Of course, I fell in intense like with the series and "libraried" my way through them quickly. When I ran out of those, I started looking at some of the earlier stand alones and smaller series she had written. I adored the Lost Colony books, but found some of the earlier contemporary stuff a bit dated. (That's the problem with contemporaries, 20 years later, and they're not so contemporary anymore.) But in the end, I found a prolific author I could trust for a good read. This book continues that good read tradition. This book was an impressive mix of murder mystery and romance. Our two main characters have both returned to the small town where they last intersected. A town where it seems that though everyone is older and wiser, many of the same resentments and malice bubble hidden beneath the surface. I was completely shocked at who our villain(s) turned out to be. Usually I can figure these things out, but nope. It was a surprise. And I loved that! Sometimes figuring out the evil dude(s) is jsut way too easy. I want some challenge darn it. I mean, let's not get crazy stupid Sherlock Holmes hard, but not paint by numbers either. Sometimes it's nice to just read a stand alone and not worry about sequels and what's next. This book gave me that, set in a charming town with some likeable accessible characters and just the right touch of thrill. I had a good time with this story and gave it 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I never have to worry about a Jayne Krentz book Jayne Krentz is one of my go-to authors in all her forms and I have yet to be disappointed. River Road is a nice combination of love story and mystery and both work nicely.
