    1 thought on “Riversong”

    1. I was hoping for a story similiar to Home is Where the Heart is or Whistlestop Cafe and instead got an unbelievebale plot - the mafia wants her to payback her dead husband's million dollar loan for a start-up computer company but can't figure out that she might have fled to her home town? With no restuarant experience - she opens a fine dining restaurant in a destitute Oregon town and saves the town by becoming a tourist draw? Maybe I am just too cyncial to enjoy what was meant to be sweet story [...]

    2. Queriendo encontrarme una lectura fácil y entretenida, me topé de bruces con lo que necesitaba: novela light, previsible, tierna a ratos y con una protagonista para darla de comer aparte (y con un cantante mexicano maravilloso y muy sexy, también). Y vamos, lo que dice : it was ok. Ya está, no tiene más. Muy amena de leer, a ver si encuentro a buen precio el resto de libros de la saga para leerlos también.(Seguro que el argumento os suena, es de telefilme de la 3 que no puede con su vida)

    3. I just finished reading Riversong, Tess, an amazingly beautiful story! I've always had a close relationship with my Savior and several people always come to me asking me questions and sometimes the " why does God allow things to happen" especially when it comes to grieving, And I can't always answer, but I always say " one things for sure, we'll have the answer when we get there" when Tommy told Lee "life isn't understandable, " only God understands and we have to wait until the end, where I ima [...]

    4. I really wanted to like this book. I did. The premise was interesting, but once I got into it, I realized it was just a teensy bit far-fetched. What businesswoman in her right mind doesn't seek protection from law enforcement when she discovers her husband left her over a million dollars in debt to the mafia? And what businesswoman in her right mind "hides out" in her hometown? What criminal organization in the world can't find someone in their freaking place of birth? I tried to set all of that [...]

    5. Lee Tucker is a woman who has had her share of hard times growing up with an alcoholic mother, and as soon as she was able, she left her past behind for a new life in Seattle. Years later, just as she thinks she has found happiness as an adult, tragedy strikes. Her husband Dan, overwhelmed by the one million dollar debt that he has kept hidden from her, runs from the loan sharks and commits suicide. Dealing with the loss and the debt that Dan has left in his wake, Lee also realizes that she is p [...]

    6. The book is a good read, but nothing to get thrilled about or get goosebumps for. The flow of the story is medium paced, it does not get you on the edge of your seat nor does it make you bored of the whats happening. It does not grip you in to attention with what is going to happen, nor does it leave you discouraged to read further. There are no surprises or page turners in the story.You know from the beginning that the Lee is going to go in to hiding to escape from thugs and you also know that [...]

    7. As a kid, I hated when an adult would always point out a morale to what every story I was engrossed in, whether it was TV or a book. When your nine, you really don't want your parents having the sex talk with your after watching an episode of Joanie Love Chachi. So now being the adult, I find myself doing the same damn things to my kids and asking them what they learned from that episode of Fresh Prince of Bel Air or Sponge Bob. I cringe each time I do it, but sometimes you can't let those littl [...]

    8. What a wonderful storyI simply loved it.It took me awhile to get to this book and with all that is going on in my life I couldn't spend so much time with it but when ever I had a moment I would read this delightful and inspiring story.The author's well described story took you right into the pages and you could experience all the scenes, smells, colors and atmosphere with the main character.The plot was heart warming, touching you deeply as you tag along with Lee as she tried to pull her life to [...]

    9. This was one of those free (or incredibly cheap) Kindle downloads that had a promising plot description, so I decided why not?Lee Tucker is left pregnant and broke after her husband kills himself. She owes about $700,000 to a loan shark (or rather, her husband did) - the kind that won't let you get away with not paying - so she escapes to her mother's run-down house in small-town Oregon. Hoping to refurbish the house and sell it, all while hiding from the loan shark, Lee doesn't anticipate the t [...]

    10. Lee Tucker is a woman who has never had it easy, and never taken anything for granted. Even as a girl, she struggled with serious life issues, without parental support. As soon as she is able, she leaves her past behind for a new life in a new place.Years later, just as she thinks she has found happiness as an adult, tragedy hits her again. Her husband, overwhelmed by debt he kept hidden from her, and running from loan sharks, commits suicide. Dealing with the loss and the debt he left in his wa [...]

    11. This novel leaves much to be desired.To start, it is cheesy. Any romantic or emotional scenes are described in such a cheap way, I feel I can't relate to them at all. I actually skipped most of these. The author adds a lot of character description about 3/4 of the way through the novel, which to me seems like very poor structure. At a few points, Hardwick goes on for PAGES describing a character reminiscing or having an internal struggle. Once again - skipped. A few comments from other reviewers [...]

    12. This book was alright, it was a little slow and forgettable but still moderately enjoyable. There were times I felt interested in what was happening but I didn't get that need-to-know feeling that an amazing book gives. (view spoiler)[ I found Tommy's character ridiculously drawn to the protagonist and all too "perfect" complete with musician hands, a slab of income, and absolutely no problem going for the pregnant protagonist. The book seemed to drag on when it in my opinion should have been a [...]

    13. If I suspend my disbelief for all the far-fetched elements of the story, which I pretty much could while I was reading it (it only caught up with me if I stopped to think about details), I can say I enjoyed the story. It was kind of like reading a fairy tale with an element of suspense. It was a little heavy on the details for me - in a suspense story, I don't care about dewdrops on daisies, and that is my major complaint. The story just moved too slowly. I was on the fence about Lee. I could ki [...]

    14. Tess Hardwick's novel, Riversong, is a beautiful story about love, struggles, empowerment, and redemption. I instantly fell in love with the characters, the small town charm, the gripping plot, and the details so well described, I felt as if I was watching a movie. I look forward to reading her next novel and secretly hope, it's the sequel to Riversong.

    15. No idea how I ended up reading this book. Pretty terrible all around; quite honestly I hated almost every main character and somehow managed to develop zero sympathy for any of them in the tragic messes that were their lives. Also, there were a number of blatant typos. Wish I hadn't read it, but at least I didn't pay for it I guess.

    16. DisappointmentI enjoyed one of the author’s other books and so I bought this one. It has been a huge letdown. The story is contrived and predictable to the point of being trite. The characters are living in a small Oregon town and suddenly there are financial resources for building a high-end restaurant. I live in Oregon. It is not a wealthy state. A gourmet cook just happens to have car trouble and becomes the cook. The hero of the story is a perfect person. The heroine goes from having a sma [...]

    17. What an awesome story. I have never read this author before but I really like the way she writes she keeps you totally involved in the story. It is exciting and touching and tender. I will be reading the second book very soon. Thank you!

    18. GreatThere's something happening from the very first page to the last.Action,suspense and mystery.Hold on to your hats folks this one's really good.

    19. Loved itReally enjoyed this small town read. A community that loves each other and are friends. It's a wonderful read a lovely romance!

    20. I picked up this book because I needed something easy and happy to read during the exam period. I read the first pages and I knew it was what I was looking for, and I also have to say romance is one of my favorite genres.In the prologue we meet Lee Tucker, an eighteen-year-old girl who is looking forward to the end of the summer to leave her little village in Oregon and her alcoholic mother and go to the city to study art.Just in the next chapter sixteen years has passed, Lee is pregnant and her [...]

    22. I love Tess Thompson’s writing. She has a way with words that just pulls you into the story and grips you until you are so involved that there is no way to close the book. Or in my case turn off my Kindle. Her writing is very eloquent. She would gaze at the stars until the night’s vast sky enveloped her and she became a star herself and was at peace in that moment of connection to teh largeness of the universe. but today it did not comfort her. Today, it amplified her feelings of isolatino f [...]

    24. I have had this title on my kindle for a while, in fact I purchased it over a year ago, and just never got that far down my pile of ‘my own reads’. But, when the opportunity to read this book for a tour appeared, I was still intrigued. From the title I purchased, to the one I was given for review, many of the grammatical and punctuation errors were addressed: far better than some complaints I have seen, while still not a completely clean copy. Fortunately, the glaring issues were mostly few [...]
