Synopsis from Goodreads:

"Author Tess Hardwick assembles a colorful cast of endearing small-town characters and takes you on a journey that will make you believe in the possibilities of life - even in the face of overwhelming adversity and unimaginable grief.

Lee Tucker is the kind of woman you find yourself rooting for long after the last page is read. When her husband commits suicide,he leaves her pregnant and one million dollars in debt to a loan shark. Out of options, she escapes to her deceased mother's dilapidated house located in a small Oregon town that, like her, is financially ruined, heartbroken and in desperate need of a fresh tart. Lee's resilience leads to a plan for a destination restaurant named Riversong, to new chances for passion and love, and to danger from her dead husband's debt as her business blooms.

A surprising mix of romance, humor, friendship, intrigue and gourmet food, Riversong entertains while reminding you of life's greatest gifts."

This is a sweet read that I enjoyed very much. The story follows Lee's life; she spent her childhood feeling unwanted and unloved. She grows up, graduates from high school, and leaves town to go away to college, promising herself she would never to return. She is very talented and smart and makes something of her life. She finely reaches the top when tragedy strikes. She is a strong woman who has to face some tough obstacles, has to learn to trust, face some significant life lessons, truly forgive and realize she is loved. There are loads of surprises in this book, some sweet romance, yummy eats, and a wonderful cast of characters. She does make some choices that as an individual annoyed me, but is this not what really occurs in life? This is a lovely beach read that is well written and I would recommend to anyone who wants a good story with some tears, laughter, and joy.
