Ms Thompson then skillfully moves us into current time where the emotionally scarred Gennie has valiantly moved forward and lost herself in a successful acting career where she can pretend to be someone else. Stefan, her co-star in a movie being filmed in Oregon's fictional River Valley, has his own secret demons. Sensing her discomfort with intimacy, Stephan connects emotionally to the fragile Gennie and helps her move forward first in the film, then to meet the child she gave up for adoption 20 years earlier and finally to confront her attacker. Riveting action and tight attention to detail kept me engaged even when I anticipated what was coming. I'm looking forward to more books from Tess Thompson.
After the prologue *Did I warn you again about that prologue? Congrats Ms. Thompson you ripped my heart out but I will give you the credit for letting it grow some while you had it and putting it back it* the story quickly jumps to the present where Genevieve “Gennie” Banks is beautiful, successful and has become one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses all the while she is hiding a terrible secret that is eating away at her soul. She holds the world at a distance never letting anyone close enough to make a difference or impact in her life. Soon you are introduced to Stefan Spencer who you find out is the Lead actor in Gennie’s latest movie and who is 100% in love with Gennie even though she has told him over and over that nothing can ever come of it. What is this secret? What trauma has damaged someone so much that they just drift through life? How many shocks can Ms. Thompson drop on us before our hearts give out. Let me tell you there are a bunch of them. I warn you again this is a real life journey where Gennie is trying to find herself and how to heal. Meaning yes it is a love story and Stefan is there but he is also there to help Gennie find herself and even do some growing as a person on his own. All the other characters in the small town made me want to move there as soon as possible to be surrounded by their warmth, love and protections.
I will soon be looking to read more of this series as soon as I get some free time. Riversnow was a little confusing to me just because I always what to know everyone’s back story and all the people in River Valley seem to have a story. *must be in all those other books. Note to self get them soon* I think if you read the series in order you will get even more from some of the interactions between the other characters that I was a little lost on.
One quote that brought me to tears and I couldn’t help but add it to my thoughts here.
I gave birth to this beautiful girl, but I’m not her mother. Yet, here she is next to me. A miracle. A second chance.
***ARC was given for a honest review***
We met Gennie and Stefan Spencer during the third book of the series and this book deals with their story.
The River Valley series deals with "broken" people finding a love that heals them in the magical little town of River Valley. Riversnow doesn't steer away from this thread, but the "hurts" in both Gennie & Stefan's pasts (rape; blackmail; threats; abuse; murder) are very dark and somewhat uncomfortable to process.
Ms Thompson handles the delicate subject matter very carefully and sensitively.
Riversnow was a lovely read that didn't drag. It was also lovely meeting up with folk from the first three books and hearing what they were up to and how they were growing.
I suppose you could read Riversnow as a stand alone book, but a lot of the background characters would be lost on you and would make a lot more sense if you read books 1 - 3 first.
Holding thumbs for a number 5
Although this is a standalone book and can be read on its own, I found that knowing the other characters in the River Valley series comforting. So if possible read those first.
