Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn't risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.
Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.
And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.
In Chasing River, readers are re-introduced to Amber Welles who we first met in Burying Water, as she finally takes that European adventure she's always talked about. One of her stops is to Ireland where Amber meets who is sure to be your next book boyfriend, River Delaney.
From their first meeting to their last, Ms. Tucker's love letter to the Emerald Isle will keep you on your toes as you take in not only the vividly detailed landscape, navigate through the tough decisions both River and Amber must face and fall completely in love with River & Amber but also his brother, Rowen and Amber's fellow Oregonian Ivy.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this book and this series to anyone who loves really great books that make you think, fall in love with great characters and leave you wanting more!
*** In addition to generally adoring anything Ms. Tucker writes because she's a master storyteller, I also loved how at the beginning of the novel she explained Ireland's history, the history of the IRA and the current group. I felt it really enhanced the overall reading experience and helped as a reader to understand and appreciate the different character's perspectives and belief systems pertaining to the history of Ireland and it's current state.
***Also, thanks to Ms. Tucker I really want to visit Ireland now! Who's with me?
