Feisty Bella is the person I always wish I could be. She's smart, foul-mouthed, brutally honest and unapologetic for who she is. In her tiny body lives a ferocious and powerful tigress. Through her, I was able to live vicariously--living without fear and way out loud.
Ben is one of my favorite male characters. He's sweet and funny and he really gets Bella. Instead of being intimidated by a strong woman, he loves her for it. I also love that he's a
fly-fisherman. I have such a romantic notion of the sport, mostly because of my favorite movie, "A River Runs Through It."
Giving them their happy ending was so much fun. I love imagining them growing old together. Can you picture Bella as that feisty old lady who still does Crossfit at 70?
About the Author
Tess Thompson is a mother and bestselling novelist of romantic suspense. Like her characters in the River Valley Collection, Tess hails from a small town in southern Oregon, and will always feel like a small town girl, despite the fact she’s lived in Seattle for over twenty-five years. She loves music and dancing, books and bubble baths, cooking and wine, movies and snuggling. She cries at sappy commercials and thinks kissing in the rain should be done whenever possible. Although she tries to act like a lady, there may or may not have been a few times in the last several years when she’s gotten slightly carried away watching the Seattle Seahawks play, but that could also just be a nasty rumor. Tess lives in a suburb of Seattle, Washington with her two daughters and two cats. They recently combined their home with the love of her life along with his two sons and three cats. This modern “Brady Bunch” family — yes, you read it correctly — four kids and five cats — live in a suburb of Seattle, Washington. In spite of their busy household, Tess manages to turn out three books a year, keeping her fans satisfied with such hits as “Riversong,” “Riverbend,” and “Riverstar” as well as many others.
