About the Author
About Tess Like most of her characters, Tess Thompson hails from a small town and will always feel like a small town girl, despite the fact she’s lived in Seattle for over twenty-five years. She loves music and dancing, books and bubble baths, cooking and wine, movies and snuggling. She cries at sappy commercials and thinks kissing in the rain should be done whenever possible. Although she tries to act like a lady, there may or may not have been a few times in the last several years when she’s gotten slightly carried away watching the Seattle Seahawks play, but that could also just be a nasty rumor. She currently lives in a suburb of Seattle, Washington with her brand new husband, the hero of her own love story, and their Brady Bunch clan of two sons, two daughters and five cats, all of whom keep her too busy, often confused, but always amazed. Yes, that’s four kids and five cats. Pray for her.

Riversnow based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Riversnow is a heartbreaking drama, with a lot of suspense thrown in. Genevieve Banks is one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses. When filming opposite Stefan Spencer in River Valley, Genevieve and Stefan become fast friends, and they have a connection neither of them thought possible. Stefan wants to bring their relationship to the next level, but Genevieve’s past still troubles her, and she’s afraid to take that step. When her secrets are revealed, Genevieve has to make a heartbreaking choice: stay silent and let others suffer too, or confront the demons of her past. The book is deep and powerful and painful, and a thousand emotions all rolled into one. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put this down. The emotions you feel as you’re reading, the emotions portrayed by the characters, it’s all very real, raw and powerful. The characters are so realistic you could imagine them walking right out of the pages and starting to chat with you. I loved tefan, and I absolutely adored Gennie, and was so proud of her and her strength and resilience. This is the first book I’ve read in the River Valley series, but it won’t be my last. I plan to pick up another one soon, when I have some spare time (always scarce on spare time) and when I recover from all I felt while reading this book. If you’re not afraid to have your heartstrings tugged, and you enjoy romance books that don’t shy away from some very real hurt in the character’s past, I would recommend this book. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
