Set in North Queensland, Riverstone Ridge is a rural romance with an element of suspense from bestselling author, Mandy Magro.

“I do think it’s high time you knew the truth, about me, about your past, and perhaps it will open doors to a future you never imagined possible.”

Nearly twenty years after Nina Jones left her hometown, certain that she’d never be able to return, the last wish of her beloved adoptive mother, Bea, draws her back to Riverstone Ridge to face the secrets she left behind.
So, I live on acreage between Cairns and Mareeba which is around where Magro also lives and [sort of] set this novel, and why I was eager to give it a go. However, unfortunately, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

I think my biggest issue with the book is that it lacks plot. I’m afraid nothing really substantial happens which really affected any enjoyment I might have gained from reading it.

Our hero and heroine, Logan and Nina, were childhood friends and just-the-once lovers before Nina moved to

This is a fabulous story it has everything that a romance reader looks for, a little suspense uncovering secrets that had been kept for many years and a gorgeous second chance romance that had me cheering Nina and Logan on, it is moving and emotional and the setting is wonderful, it was really hard to put this one down once I had started it.

Nina Jones grew up on Riverstone Ridge a farm just outside of the small north Queensland town of Huntingvale, she knew she was adopted and loved her Aunty

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant

One of the greatest joys of being a reader is discovering a Writer and being with them through their writing journey. To see the growth in their writing is a real pleasure. Mandy Magro is one of those Writers that has brought me so much joy over the years and still does. Absolutely love your new book, Riverstone Ridge, Mandy. Thank you so much

Riverstone Ridge by author Mandy Magro captures tragedy, suspense, heartache and second chances all in one read. A story with some stand out characters and moments that will pull at the heart strings. Readers cannot help but be caught up in the escapades, memories and dream moments of Logan and Nina. Tangled webs throughout the narrative that held more than one story arc. Another good story by Ms Magro.

Riverstone Ridge follows the life of Nina, a woman who loses her much loved adoptive mother, Bea. When Bea passes Nina returns to the small town she grew up in and must face her fears, the tragedies of the past and uncover family secrets. Her world is turned upside down.

Nina is a beautiful protagonist. I really enjoyed her character; her strength and determination. Whilst dealing with grief, Nina finds romance from her past. Logan, local police officer knows grief all too well and provides

Riverstone Ridge is a story packed with emotion, regrets, tragedy, and finally hope. The author has penned a truly passionate account of life in a small town, the demons that often follow us through the years, and how a common goal can bring two broken souls together to mend and find love. I found myself drawn to these characters and the inner turmoil they battled, along with a mysterious foe, to find their HEA. Riverstone Ridge is a heartfelt, captivating and satisfying book, and look forward ...more

I have always enjoyed Mandy Magro's books and Riverstone Ridge did not disappoint. Mandy has the ability to capture the feel of a small town and the Australian Countryside and always writes about relatable characters. I do love a Romantic Suspense and I recommend it anyone that loves this genre. Thank you to Harper Collins and NetGalley for the chance to read this book.
