When an actress is found murdered after she’s seen leaving the restaurant Riversong with Ben, he is accused of the crime and arrested. Convinced of his innocence, the River Valley friends band together to find the real killer, and Bella must face her biggest fear to ensure the truth is revealed.
Romantic, suspenseful, and engaging, bestselling author Tess Thompson’s third novel in the River Valley Collection delivers another tribute to the power of community and the bonds of friendship.
River Valley is a town to fall in love with--the breathtaking scenery the author so skillfully portrays and the loyal, kindhearted townspeople combine to create the perfect backdrop for the story. I connected with Bella almost immediately, but fell in love with the secondary characters as well. Not all the secondary character were endearing, mind you--Bella's sleezy ex, a crooked cop, and a conniving man with a connection to a neighboring town all fall under suspicion for the vicious crime.
All in all, this is a well-written story that lovers of romance and light mysteries will enjoy.
