I absolutely adore small town romance series books. RaeAnne Thayne is one of my very favorite authors to get my fix for an awesome small town romance story. This talented lady writes a story that digs right down into my heart every time. I instantly bond with the characters and I'm thrilled to catch up with old friends in town. So needless to say when I hear that RaeAnne Thayne had a new release coming out I could not wait to get my hands on it and dig right into to the story. I received my copy in the mail and less than 5 minutes later I was just going to read the blurb on the back and the first few pages. An hour later I was completely engrossed in Riverbend Road and way more than just a page or two into the story. I honestly could not help myself. This book is so good it was impossible to put down.
Wyn Bailey is a very self sufficient girl that can kick rear end, protect the town of Haven Point while on duty, and knock the socks off a certain chief when she is off duty. This girl has been through so much that my heart just broke for her. Not only did I feel her pain but I admired her strength, courage, and ability to pick up and keep plugging through life. She has no problem kicking a rear end or two when needed but she also has a heart of gold and is willing to help anyone in need, even if she has just met them.
Cade Emmett does a fabulous job of keeping the peace in Haven Point. Cade has had a very interesting life that could have sent him down a path very easily on the other side of the law. How could I not instantly adore this guy and admire him for his heart and responsibility that he takes very seriously. OK I may have wanted to yell at him a time or two that he should go for it and follow his heart.
Wyn and Cade have a deep friendship and have know each other since they were children so their relationship goes way back. The problem is that Cade has an incredible attraction to Wyn and Wyn has loved Cade since she was a teen. This wouldn't be such a huge problem is Cade was not her boss. There seems to be just way too many obstacles in their way for them to have a happily ever after.
I'm not going to spoil the story for you. I want you to grab a copy and enjoy this book just as much as I did. There is a huge dramatic situation that kind of puts every and anything into prospective for everyone involved. I have to say I think I may have held my breath for a few pages while reading this part of the book. Ms. Thayne sure does know how to add in a nice amount of suspense that kept me turning pages with a tear in my eye.
Over all this is one really awesome small town romance story. I loved catching up with all my old friends from Haven Point. Wyn and Cade's story is emotional, full of heart and soul, with a few encumbrances from their past that they will need to work through in order to make it to that happily ever after.
If you are already a huge RaeAnne Thayne fan like me, then HURRY grab this story because you are going to love it just as much as I did. If you have not had a chance to read Ms. Thayne's work yet but love small town romance series then grab this one. I think you will enjoy the characters and quickly fall in love with with RaeAnne Thayne's talent and writing style. Riverbend Road is part of the Haven Point series but never fear, it will stand alone just fine. However if you haven't read the previous books in the series may I suggest grabbing them now too. They are just as wonderful.
I was given the opportunity to read this great story so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my grand pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Riverbend Road.
