River Valley Series #1
March 22, 2018
Lee Tucker’s life is a mess. In the wake of her husband’s tragic death she discovers he left her pregnant and one million dollars in debt to a dangerous loan shark willing to do anything to collect. Out of money and options, Lee seeks refuge in the small Oregon town where her mother’s dilapidated home sits vacant, as desperate for a fresh start as Lee herself.
With a baby on the way and a living to make, Lee opens a restaurant to generate some much needed cash. But just as she catches her breath, and the eye of a local musician offering a second chance at love, she finds herself right back in the clutches of the debt collector with more to lose than ever.
Originally published May 2011 in hardcover by Booktrope and November 2016 in eBook by 4kids5cats.
“Riversong has a little of everything. There is romance, crime, intrigue, literary drama and a little suspense to keep the pages turning. The characters are real – people you might find in ordinary life when faced with the same sets of circumstances.” — Amazon Reviewer
“This felt like a newer, more contemporary Rosamund Pilcher book — all-American, not British. But it’s that same sense of a whole world opening up for me to read and enjoy. I loved the characters, the love story, the heartache, the real dramatic tension and the blessing of a good ending. Such a good read. I am pacing myself to read the rest of Tess Thompson’s novels — one per month — so I don’t run out too fast. Can’t wait to read more.” —Amazon Reviewer
