I'm a big fan of Amanda Quick and I really thought this to be an interesting read when I read the synopsis. I liked some of the intrueige though a little more suspense could have been added. I also would have like to have seen some more passion. It did have some of Quick's halmark wit though. It was alright but I have read better from her.

    more from this reviewer

    Lots of Suspense and a wonderful story woven by Amanda

    Set in the late Victorian era of England, this is a charming romance with a dose of a compelling tale of mystery to boot. The reader will find that the characters are well-developed and realistic. There is humor which I always appreciate and some of the supporting characters actually made me think of someone that I had known over the years. As the story moves along in this enticing story of society's upper-class that is cloaked in dark secrets that are tied to the Thames River, hence the title: The River Knows.
    The novel has the main character Louisa Bryce, the journalist, and then there's the wealthy Anthony Stalbridge that is seeking answers to his fiancé Fiona drowning that has been ruled a suicide. These two connect and fall in love. I'll stop here.
    I found that that this tale has plenty of action and a number of surprises. If you haven't read any of Quick's books this is an excellent introduction to her writing skills.

    An Entertaining Escape

    A diverting romp with resourceful and capable female characters set in the late Victorian era. The eccentrics are beguiling and amusing. The rouges dabble in blackmail and murder. The mystery surrounds the suicides of three women from different stations who end up in the River Thames. Louisa is a bookshop owner forced to flee to preserve her virtue and life. Anthony is haunted by the death of his fiancée. As their romance simmers to a boil Louisa and Anthony team up to unravel this well woven blanket of deception and questions. Are they suicides? Have they fingered all of the villains?

    Its' okay but I have read better books from this arthor.

    It was a fairly good book, but not too much in originality except for the female character's profession at that time of the century. The other books from Fern Michaels - the Sisterhood Series, and Texas, was more gripping.
