I would have loved it without the vularity.

This is a great beginning to this three part series. I fell in love with the characters right away and because of the accurate historical details I felt like I was right there with them. Can't wait to read Parts 2 & 3.

I found this book to be very predictable and not well written enough to keep my interest. Not a horrible book if you want a quick easy read. Interesting setting in the early colonies. Don't expect it to be a real "page turner" though!

Historically accurate, engaging from start to finish, a can't put down jewel of a book (s), I read all 3 parts with gusto! Can't wait for more on the Bassets!

I enjoyed this book very much. My only complaint would be the language. Looking forward to the sequels.

This author needs a really good editor. She tries to write well above her vocabulary level, which makes for some ludicrous reading. A good editor would make such a difference. Her sentence construction leaves a lot to be desired as well. The story is interesting, I did finish the book, but someone help her, please.

I really enjoyed this book. Ended up buying the rest of the series because I wanted to see how it would keep going, and I don't usually do that very much. I have so many free books, that for me to buy the rest of the series says something to me.

I found the characters and the story line to be enjoyable reading. Wanted to continue with the rest of the series.

Pass on this book. Between the relentless cursing and the complete lack of proper editing I couldn't stand it very long.

This book was a bit of a disappointment. I was looking forward to a historical read about colonial America. And although I did get some of that, there was entirely too much silliness involved. The author tried to include too many life events in a two-day story. And the characters were one moment responsible and mature and the next moment spoiled, entitled little brats. And don't get me started on the vocabulary; I don't think it was true to the period. I really wanted to like it, and I did read the whole thing. But by the end, I decided I'm not going to invest in the next two installments.

This book has all the makings of a good story, but it falls flat. The characters are most likable, and you want to know more about each, but there is way too much narration and not enough dialog. The entire book takes place over the course of 2 days, which, when you think about it, takes you right out of the story and makes it all unbelievable. It feels more like someone who was there is telling you about it. I wanted more to be swept into the story. I kept hoping it would get better, but was disappointed. I wont bother to read Part 2. (I did LOVE Robert! He's the best character and his misfortune did make me giggle.)

I read all three books it's like one big novel if put them together, I hated to it end I hope more will come. It is both mix of history and love story but it will keep your interests.

This first part of the Riverbreeze starts out slow and a bit awkward, but the author is able to construct interesting characters that make me want to read part II.

This is an interesting book that takes place in the early VA colony. Book one is about two brothers, their trials, adventures and achievements. You will love Jamie and Robert. The are characters with substance and depth.
