Book Review: The River House by Carla Neggers

What’s the Story:

Felicity MacGregor loves organizing social events for others, but her own personal life is a different story. After a brief but failed attempt at a career as a financial analyst, she returned to Knights Bridge, where she enjoys running a thriving party-planning business. Then Felicity’s life gets a shake-up when her childhood friend Gabriel Flanagan returns unexpectedly to their tiny hometown. Now a high-flying businessman, Gabe always vowed to get out of Knights Bridge, but he is back for the local entrepreneurial boot camp Felicity’s been hired to organize. Together again, they’ll finally have to face each other–and their complicated past. Gabe and Felicity soon realize their reunion is stirring up long-buried emotions. While Gabe has big plans for his future, Felicity is discovering that hers doesn’t depend on fate–she must choose what’s right for her. But if they can find a bridge between their diverging paths, they may just discover that their enduring connection is what matters most.

Favorite Words: “A bad brownie is better than no brownie. It’s one of life’s rules.”

This book was as sweet as the blueberry cobbler and brownies that Felicity made for Gabe. What’s not to love about a little town in New England with that down-home feel? The cast of characters were inviting and helped move the story along very well. I also loved seeing how all the families interconnected with one another.

Felicity and Gabe were made for each other. You knew from their interactions that when they finally let themselves fall in love it would be fireworks. The River House was a wonderful read to get me back in the mood for warmer weather and summer fun.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
