Alice Orr is the queen of ramped-up stakes and page-turning suspense. In this fifth book of the Riverton Road Romantic Suspense Series, we meet Amanda and Mike, long lost lovers. They are reunited by circumstance in their small North Country town in the midst of a possible kidnapping, dead bodies on a riverbank and a budding romance that simmers in the background until it ignites with passion.

The characters are believable with their flaws and vulnerabilities and the drama unfolds at a steady, sometimes frantic pace. It’s the characters and the setting coming alive on the page that call me back to Orr’s stories. I spent sixteen years in Syracuse, New York, not far from the setting of the stories and recall the North Country as a vast expanse of natural beauty and intrigue and its people rugged and resilient.

Orr delivers on her promise of both romance and suspense. Book 5 is an enjoyable, satisfying read that kept me up well-past my bedtime. I highly recommend this book as a compelling addition to her Riverton Road Romantic Suspense Series.
