This book was a dissapointment. It is boring and not very well written. I love JAK, but find it hard to believe she was happy with this effort. We paid for her reputation by preordering this book and it does not live up to past books under any of her monikers. Save your money if you have not already bought this. You won't even want to read this at the library. For those diehards, like me (I would have ignored this too!) I beg you think really hard. This is only the second ever review I have written, but felt so strongly could not not write this.

Lucy Sheridan has returned to Summer River after thirteen years to put her Aunt Sara’s affairs in order after a fatal car crash. She runs into Mason Fletcher, who she hasn’t seen since he embarrassed her at a party the day before was made to leave Summer River by her aunt. All grown up, Lucy is now a forensic genealogist and Mason runs a security firm with his brother. When Lucy and Mason make a grisly discovery in her aunt’s home, Lucy’s determined to find out the truth about what happened thirteen years ago and what is happening now… RIVER ROAD is a novel set in an idyllic town with some very dirty secrets. At first our main characters, Lucy and Mason seemed awkward (and not just around each other), but as the story progressed they definitely became more human and relatable. The author eases the reader into what happened in the past, the ramifications on present events, and the myriad connections between characters. There is a small cast of shady supporting characters, each with their own agenda and motive (whether hidden or open). We’re given plenty of red herrings and false trails to follow, but the pieces all fall into place in an exciting story climax. Once Lucy and Mason opened up, I enjoyed the brewing romance there. I also thought it was intriguing how their lines of work helped them keep their wits about them, especially in scary and/or dangerous situations. If you’re looking for a hot sexy romance or a complex thriller, then this book isn’t for you. RIVER ROAD is definitely a light romantic suspense story dappled with humor throughout and a sweet happily-ever-after ending.

Meh. Jayne Ann Krentz is an experienced writer and kept me turning the pages. But I had most of the present-day mystery figured out, and the cold-case solution was weak and implausible. Since the surface "solution" turns out to be The Solution, I am not spoiling anything to reveal that the one Mason and Lucy thought to have killed Brinker from the start could not have committed the crime in the manner JAK lays out. It was a two-person crime that was a strange mix of premeditation and opportunity. The killer had tge body bag and tiles ready for stuffing Brinker in the fireplace but then waited for Brinker to come knocking? And could then handle stuff a dead body in the fireplace and tile up the fireplace alone? And despite speculation that the fireplace was tge perfect place to hide a body so it woukdn't be found, who does that? And who doesn't wonder about a recently tiled-over fireplace when the town goon suddenly goes missing? Frankly, this was severely disappointing from a veteran writer. I had a better solution thought out halfway through and I still think it would have worked better.

It doesn't get any better than Jayne Ann Krentz. Romantic suspense at it's best. This book was exciting from page one to the last. Loved the Lucy Mason dynamics. This book was as good as all the ones before.

Book felt more like an excellent outline that a nice fat read but I couldn't pinpoint the shortcoming - perhaps less than fully fleshed out characters? or too fast a pace? Not sure, no regrets about reading but this won't be on my 'gems' list (as many of her previous books are.)

I read all of Jayne Ann Krentz. This is not the best but still a very good read.

For the ones that didn't rate this book well...you are nuts! You must like books full of sex and cusing (not that I don't LOVE great sex scenes). Any Tom, Dick or Harry can write a sex scene. But to write a story line and then add all the twists, turns, just enough info to keep you guessing to the end who did what....THAT IS A GREAT WRITER!!!!!!! I will keep my standing order at Seattle Mystery Book Store for signed copies of all of Jayne Ann Krentz, Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle books!!! Plus get them on my Nook as well!

If youve read any contemporary romance with a mystery killer, youve read this one.

I love JAK.  This contemporary romantic suspense has no paranormal elements and is just as great as the authors other works.  The interplay between the Lucy & Mason is terrific.  Both characters have issues but they each seem to be the cure for the others issues while solving a murder mystery or two. Fans will love it and if you haven't read any of Ms. Krentz's work this would be a great one to start with.

I have always enjoyed JAK books, I have read her books for years and always eagerly await her knew ones, I have been a reader of her books since back when she published with Macfadden Publishing Co (not sure of the spelling) she wrote books under the name of Jayne Bentley-Jayne Castle and I hope someday those older books will be released again unto the nook, Anyway this new book of hers is also a home run and I will re-read it as I have re-read all her other books A KEEPER!

I am a big Jayne Ann Krentz fan, especially for her earlier works. But I was getting awfully tired of reading her latest novels which all centered around the same theme of psychics and stones. It is fantastic to finally have a book written by Ms. Krentz that difers from what she has produced lately. Though I love her characters in her latest works, I found myself skipping through the psychical bits. This new book of Ms. Krentzs, is a refreshing change that I hope she continues with. In addition, I hope her writings as Amanda Quick bear a similiar change as well.

This is clearly not JAK writing. The Ghost Writer continuously made mistakes, not to mention the plot was forced. The guy had a drug addict Mother and a Father who didn't know he existed yet he wanted to do it to avenge Mom and Dad. And then he wanted was rightfully his. Please make up your mind. Stick to a plot and go with it. I did not like the way the GW emasculated the hero (Mason) to make Lucy seem like the heroine when in fact she was a naive twit. JAK can always make the Hero and Heroine to be just that without degrading either one. She would always salute each one for their individualism . I will continue to read JAK books, however if the same GW continues to write I will write her off as I did with the Twilight Saga writer SM. P.S. I loved all of the Arcane books-that's the JAK-AQ-JC books. Nothing but AWESOME! Vanza books as well.

I love anything written by Jayne Ann Krentz, no matter what name she is published in. RIVER ROAD is a fine combination of suspense and romance. It is 409 pages long and I practically devoured it in one sitting, something I haven't been able to do in a while. Thank you, Jayne for a wonderful adventure in reading.
