A River to Cross by Yvonne Harris ~ Review

I’m afraid I can’t give a glowing review on every book I read and while there were enjoyable places in “A River to Cross”, I found a great deal of this story unbelievable.  More than once during the book I thought a scene was not appropriate to the time period.  And while I won’t enter into specifics as it would just be degrading, I will say I didn’t believe many of the events between  the hero and heroine would actually happen. I thought several historical facts were also inaccurate. It seemed too “modern”.

            The romance really rocketed to a fast start which I thought was a bit too fast. It didn’t seem plausible that the hero would see the heroine for the first time in a picture and immediately have heart flutters. However this is a short book with a short word count, so that very possibly, could have been the intent of the author.

            Several action scenes were well laid out, including the opening kidnapping scene. While I did enjoy the debut book, “The Vigilante’s Bride”, I didn’t find this book as entertaining to read. I was pulled too many times from the storyworld with what I considered implausibility.

            Now, with that said, I believe that if you enjoyed the first novel by this author, you will enjoy this second. This is simply the opinion of one reader.

            This is review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publisher for my copy to review.
