A single mom in need of safety accepts help from a mysterious recluse in this small-town romance by USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson.
Annie Bell just wants to do the two things she loves: cook and care for her young son. So when she lands the role as head chef at a new restaurant, she fails to anticipate how quickly things change as her talent for cooking puts her quaint hometown on the map.
Amidst a flurry of publicity, Annie finds herself back in the sights of the abusive ex-boyfriend she though she’d left behind. He wants nothing more than to make Annie pay, and she knows his threats are more than empty promises.
Reluctantly, Annie accepts the help fo a handsome, wealthy recluse, hoping to ensure the safety of her little family. But things aren’t always as they seem, and as Annie ultimately learns, her would-be hero has a dark past of his own.
Riverbend is book two of the River Valley Series. I mentioned this series a couple of years ago, Riversong, and I absolutely adore this series so far. I love the small town feel (I lived in a small tow until it exploded with houses), I love the connection between the main characters, and overall I just love the feel that this story has given me.
