2.5 Wishing for more romance Stars
This is my first book by this author, and although I did enjoy the small town aspect about this book, I must say the romance was way too light for me.
There was 2 kissing scenes and each time the hero pushed the heroine away, and the hero only manned up at 90%, which was way too late for me. Their romance felt too rushed at the end, and lacked depth.
RaeAnne Thayne is one of my favorite contemporary fiction/women’s fiction authors. Her stories are filled with warmth and genuine emotion, with well drawn, mature characters, I can relate to.

ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review
What a wonderful addition to the Haven Point series. RIVERBEND ROAD is exactly why I love RaeAnne Thayne's books and devour them rather quickly. The secondary characters are from the previous books and it was great catching up with everyone!

I loved Wyn so much!! I thought she was totally awesome. She stole my heart early on when she walked into an old barn on fire to save two teenage boys. Then Wyn continued to charm me as the story went along, with her befriending a skitti ...more

That's not Wyn's fault. She's made of . . . Wyn. Heh. She's compassionate and tough and does her best to infuse kindness into being a cop. From befriending a skittish neighbor to dealing with rambunctious children to wrangling with the i ...more
1. Wynona makes the first move when it comes to her and Cade and boy, we don't see enough of that
2. Despite the almost requisite drama at the end, I loved the fact that Cade didn't go all caveman on Wyn and wanted her to stay behind at this house, out of some misguided notion that he wanted to protect her.
Quite the contrary, since he mentions that he knows Wyn is a trained professional and that she can handle herself. I thought that was ...more

Wyn Baily was born into the life of the police job she holds now. Her father and twin brother were both killed in the line of duty, her older brother is a sheriff in the next town over. Some would say it is in her genes to be on the force. She would agree, but lately she’s been restless and looking for something more from life.
Cade Emmett relies on Wyn more than he should as his best police office ...more
Another enjoyable entry to the series. RaeAnne Thayne always creates these characters that feel like real people in real life situations. Characters that you want to have as friends and, by the end of the book, end up caring about as if they're real people.
I do have to say that I didn't like this book quite as much as the previous ones, but only because it seemed as if Wyn and Cade spent the majority of the book telling themselves why they couldn't be in a relationship. So much so th ...more
Cade is an old fashioned hero fully formed who is trying to do the right thing. Wyn is not a shy doormat or wounded heroine.
Sure, this story doesn't break new ground and is somewhat predictable.
However? It is filled with kind people doing kind things out of love. This is one of those stories where I believed in the HEA and didn't feel that one of the characters was settling for less th ...more
