A nice-enough historical romance with a sweet leading guy. I cared less for the heroine but I understood why she was written this way. The plot was predictable.

This book could easily be read as a 'stand-alone'.

Still trying to make Mount TBR smaller I picked up a romance novel by Elizabeth Grayson called Moon in the Water. I guess this is what we would call a road romance although it is set on boat in the Mississipi river.

Chase Hardesty is bribed by James Rossiter to marry is daughter and give a name to the baby she is expecting. In exchange he will give him ownership of his new steamer. As Ann and Chase embark on a journey to the west it is also a journey of discovery for both of them.

This was a great book about finding love in unexpected places. The author is very brilliant at outlining emotions through vivid, descriptive syntax and interpretation. Definitely a must-read for those hopeless romantics.
This was a recommended book for me from my library. I mean, yes it was totally predictable, and a bit over the top at times, but I didn't hate it, and it was a quick, somewhat entertaining read, so... 3 stars
The heroine is forced into a marriage with a riverboat captain. Luckily, he has a conscience and the two develop into a great couple. Also learned a lot about this world and time period.
Sweet historical romance that taught me about life in the riverboat and family doesn't always mean the same blood
I enjoyed the honesty and integrity of Chase. Lovely little riverboat romance.

Elizabeth Grayson fell in love with historical novels in the third grade. Her teacher read THE GOLD LACE COAT, by Helen Fuller Orton, to her class in preparation for their trip to Fort Niagara—and Elizabeth was hooked. She’s been reading and writing historical novels ever since.
