Genevieve Banks is beautiful and successful – and one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses.

While filming opposite Hollywood’s heartthrob Stefan Spencer in River Valley, Genevieve and Stefan form a deep friendship. He wants to take their relationship to the next level, but a violent incident from Genevieve’s past has made her feel intimacy is an impossibility.

When her closely guarded secret is revealed, Genevieve is forced into a decision: Stay silent and let others suffer or bravely confront her violent past and the man who hurt her.

In this fourth installment of the bestselling River Valley Series, author Tess Thompson explores themes of community, friendship and love.

Riversnow is a heartbreaking drama, with a lot of suspense thrown in. Genevieve Banks is one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses. When filming opposite Stefan Spencer in River Valley, Genevieve and Stefan become fast friends, and they have a connection neither of them thought possible. Stefan wants to bring their relationship to the next level, but Genevieve’s past still troubles her, and she’s afraid to take that step. When her secrets are revealed, Genevieve has to make a heartbreaking choice: stay silent and let others suffer too, or confront the demons of her past.

The book is deep and powerful and painful, and a thousand emotions all rolled into one. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put this down. The emotions you feel as you’re reading, the emotions portrayed by the characters, it’s all very real, raw and powerful. The characters are so realistic you could imagine them walking right out of the pages and starting to chat with you. I loved tefan, and I absolutely adored Gennie, and was so proud of her and her strength and resilience.

This is the first book I’ve read in the River Valley series, but it won’t be my last. I plan to pick up another one soon, when I have some spare time (always scarce on spare time) and when I recover from all I felt while reading this book. If you’re not afraid to have your heartstrings tugged, and you enjoy romance books that don’t shy away from some very real hurt in the character’s past, I would recommend this book.
