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.

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.

I really wanted to like this book, and it sounded like it would be intriguing, mysterious and sexy. It wasn't. It was plodding and predictable, with no surprises, and a 'romance' that seemed especially fake. Left me with the feeling that the author needed to crank one out in order to make some quick cash. Waste of time.

This is maybe the 4th or 5th time I've read this one it is one of my favorites. I have most of Amanda Quick's (and her aliases) books I have read and reread them and am entertained every time.

There were a few things that bothered me about The River Knows. First the story just seemed to grope along at a snail's pace. I didn't find too many parts in the story that kept me in suspense, which is unusual for Amanda Quick. She always seemed to have a knack for blending, suspense, romance and humor with characters that you enjoy. I've always enjoyed Amanda Quick and normally the heroine is strong, with a mysterious flare, but this book sort of let me down. But despite these criticisms, I still thought the book was a worthwhile read.

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?

wonderful!!!!!!!!!! great for historic lovers, but want some fun and romance also- her characters are always so down-to-earth. But there is always a great storyline or two-

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.
