Book Review: Chasing River by K.A. Tucker

Members of the Vise Library were selected to review Chasing River.  We received a copy of K.A. Tucker's book for an honest review.

About the book:

A suspense-driven New Adult romance novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of Ten Tiny Breaths and Burying Water. 

Armed with two years’ worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn’t let her die, but he also can’t be identified at the scene—so, he fled. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Pushing her away would be the smart move.

Maybe it’s because he saved her life, or maybe it’s because he’s completely different from everything she’s left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn’t the kind of guy she’d want to catch.
Chasing River is the third book in K.A. Tucker's Water series.  Amber is the sister to the main male character in the first book of the series.  This book can be read by itself, but I would recommend reading the first book in the series.  You will get a little glimpse of her and her character in that book.  This book takes you out of Oregon (where the two previous books were located) and on a trip to Ireland.  She is trying to get over a bad breakup and she does something that is not expected of her by travelling to Ireland.  She gets lost one day and in the process is saved from a pipe bomb by a man named River.  She finally is able to track him down in order to thank him for saving her life.  From there, the story takes off.  I don't want to give too much of their story away, but I will say that I really enjoyed Amber really stepping out of her comfort zone when it comes to River.  This book gives you a lot of great scenery and background information pertaining to Ireland.  If you want a little romance with a little history lesson, then check this book out!
