 My Review

Last year, when I met the Welles family in Burying Water, I completely fell in love with their selflessness, compassion and generosity. I was so excited to read Amber’s book, but when I saw it was taking place in Ireland I was ecstatic.

Amber Welles, our Oregon girl, has saved up her money and is on a trip around the world. She isn’t usually one to step outside her comfort zone, but decides it’s now or never and she is ready to live. Things are going according to plan until she is a victim in an accident in Dublin. 

River Delaney is a guy just trying to do the right thing, be a good brother, run his family’s pub, and hopefully one day have a family of his own. He isn’t your typical hero, but when he sees that an innocent bystander is about to be injured he is unable to look the other way, he has to save her.

River and Amber are an unlikely pair. She is a rule follower who believes rights right and wrongs wrong. He is a guy who has seen more gray and hard times then he wants to admit. Together, they are exactly what the other needs. I loved their connection, mainly because neither one was whole without the other. He is the guy who makes Amber feel alive and she is the girl he doesn’t think he deserves.

I feel like all the books in the series have been strong, so it’s hard to say which is my favorite. While this book is a strong addition to the series it isn’t my favorite. I wanted more romance and spark between the Amber and River. They are perfect on paper, I just wanted to see more in the story. We get so much history that at times it felt the story slowed down.

Chasing River is a smart, suspenseful, exciting read. I love how Tucker makes you think, things aren’t always black and white; and distinguishing between right and wrong can be difficult. If you are looking for a book that will pull you in, make you think and ultimately have falling in love with the characters this is your book. 
“You’ll never be good enough for my daughter.” 

“But I’ll never stop trying to be.”

  Chasing River Quote Card 2     

About CHASING RIVER: Armed with two years' worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude. Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn't let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move. Maybe it's because he saved her life, or maybe it's because he's completely different from everything she's left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone. And River isn't the kind of guy she'd want to catch.
