Riverbend by Tess Thompson
My Review: July 11, 2013 ~ Review Copy ~
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
First I would like to thank the author Tess Thompson for this book for an honest review. I have not read Riversong yet, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading Riverbend. Annie was young and to get away from her home situation jumped into a relationship with Marco who ends up be a very abusive man. When she finds out she is pregnant she makes a decision to get away from him for good and he ends up in jail for trying to beat her to death and drugs. She ended up in Riverbend when she got into a relationship with another man that was mentally abusive. She left him but stayed in Riverbend and has a very colorful group of friends. Marco received ten years in prison. Annie was happy taking care of her son and being a chef and partner with Lee in their restaurant. Drake is a man who Annie runs into and is asked to come cook meals once a week because he plans to become a recluse. She accepts and on her first day she gets a call from her ex Marco. Annie is now terrified and also worried how all her friends will react because she never told them about Marco. Her friends rally to help protect her and the safest place for her and her son to stay is with Drake. Annie and Drake both have their own past demons to overcome as they fall in love. I applaud Tess for taking on and doing a good job writing about abuse and how people react and deal with it. It takes some a long time to learn to trust people. Great job Tess keep up the good work.
