From the New York Times --bestselling author of Dream Eyes and Copper Beach , a brand-new quintessential Jayne Ann Krentz romance.
It's been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she'd been sent home suddenly after being dragged out of a wild party--by the guy she had a crush on, just to make it more embarrassing. Obviously Mason Fletcher--only a few years older but somehow a lot more of a grown-up--was the overprotective type who thought he had to come to her rescue.

Now, returning after her aunt's fatal car accident, Lucy is learning there was more to the story than she realized at the time. Mason had saved her from a very nasty crime that night--and soon afterward, Tristan, the cold-blooded rich kid who'd targeted her, disappeared mysteriously, his body never found.

A lot has changed in thirteen years. Lucy now works for a private investigation firm as a forensic genealogist, while Mason has quit the police force to run a successful security firm with his brother--though he still knows his way around a wrench when he fills in at his uncle's local hardware store. Even Summer River has changed, from a sleepy farm town into a trendy upscale spot in California's wine country. But Mason is still a protector at heart, a serious (and seriously attractive) man. And when he and Lucy make a shocking discovery inside Sara's house, and some of Tristan's old friends start acting suspicious, Mason's quietly fierce instincts kick into gear. He saved Lucy once, and he'll save her again. But this time, she insists on playing a role in her own rescue . . .

An excellent story line with some mystery and suspence. You will never know what could happen at a teenage party and find out years later the truth about one special night with friends. Will definetly be reading more of Jayne Ann Krentz books.

It's been a long time since I've read Jayne Ann Krentz. River Road is a delightful blend of mystery and romance set in CA's wine country. It was on the 2017 list of best 101 romance novels in the last decade.

Lucy Sheridan returns to Aunt Sara's home after her tragic death in a car accident. With the help of Mason Fletcher, the boy she had a crush on when a teen-ager, she finds a dead body in her aunt's fireplace. She learns how much her aunt loves her and protected her years ago. The romance between Lucy and Mason grows through out the book which has a satisfying ending.

If you like your romance with a strong-minded heroine and equally tough hero with sometimes a little of the paranormal thrown in, than Jayne Krentz is the author for you. Always fun to read.

Not one of her best. The characters are unusually one-dimensional. I've really enjoyed many of her other books and don't mind knowing the arc of the story line before hand, but she's written much better books than this.

This novel is one of Krentz's best. She takes her time building the character relationships, romance and suspense. Very satisfying read.

A classic JAK romantic suspense. A good read, but not a great read. For those who like her previous works, you will also like this one!
