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 couldn't risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. 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. Chasing her off 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.


I was provided a review copy by Atria; this did not influence my opinion of the book.

I loved, Chasing River, the 3rd book in the Burying Water series. I loved the history of Ireland, (I am Irish-Italian and my Irish ancestry is from Cork Ireland, it was so cool reading a little about it in the book) and as well, I loved reading about the history of the IRA, I loved the strong familial ties, and of course I loved the relationship between River and Amber it was dynamic and endearing.

This book opens with a bit of a history lesson. Don’t let that frighten or steer you away. It was enlightening. It took me back to the memories of the news reports of my youth when the bombings and reports of killings and unrest were occurring on a minute to minute basis in Ireland.  I would sit in front of the television with my parents, feeling angry, baffled and even a bit frightened. I never fully understood what was going on or why it was happening. Only that it didn’t make any sense to me. To me, K.A. Tucker does a great job explaining for what reasons both sides were fighting, in both past and present day.

Divider

One day, Amber Welles is quickly walking through an Ireland park with her head down in a map. Seemingly, from out of now where, River Delaney knocks her to the ground as a bomb goes off. River leaves her after checking to see if she’s okay. She’s left with bruises, confusion over what the hell just happened, and who just saved her life, and why.  She has nothing to tell the police when they arrive.  They leave their card, and ask her to call should she remember more.  Therein lies the issue for Amber. She does remember a few things.  But she doesn’t think the guy who saved her life was the same who set the bomb, but why did he run? She needs to find out.

Amber Welles, is a nurse and daughter of Sheriff Welles, and sister of Jesse, from Burying Water.  She has diligently saved her money to travel the world. She hopes to make memories of a lifetime and figure out who exactly, Amber Welles is.  She knew that in order to do that, she needed to get away from the overprotectiveness of her father, the practical mind of her mother and be free of the scrutinizing eyes of both.  Going out on her own goes against her practical, good girl, always following the rules, nature.  But she’s determined,  she knows that if she doesn’t do this now, before she is tied down to a family, she never will.  So she sets out on a journey that is sure to change her life in ways she could never predict.

River Delaney, is a bartender, and son of pub owners of one of the oldest pubs (Delaney’s) in Dublin, Marion and Seamus Delaney. He has two brother’s the oldest and the one who brings on the most trouble, Aengus and the youngest, most responsible and fun-loving of the three, Rowen.  River’s family has a rich history with the IRA and of Ireland’s struggles.

It is this struggle that brings on the chance meeting between River and Amber.  River is not the type of guy Amber would normally date, she dates doctors and business men, he doesn’t normally date straight laced “good girls”, but they instantly hit it off and there is an undeniable connection.  That is until she learns the truth.

You and me

Here’s the thing about this book that had me nervous and happy all in the same.  It had insta-lust (which I usually hate) but it was handled with a beautiful romance and the heroine staying true to who she is! I LOVED the ending, because while the ending is an HEA, it is a realistic HEA.  

I appreciate that the author did not feel it necessary to wrap the ending up in a nice, neat package.  For me, with the way she ended it, K. A. Tucker maintained the integrity of the character of Amber.
It was perfect!

This book had it all for me, a beautiful romance, humor and suspense.  This is a top May read!

    I would love to visit Australia! Thanks so much for the chance, love Ka Tucker’s books. 🙂

  2. Bettina

    I just love travelling! <3 Id love to visit New Zealand someday. Also Norway and Ireland! <3

  3. FMA

    If I could travel anywhere in the world, it would definitely be Italy. My family is there and I would love to visit them. The second place on my “bucket list” is Spain. I want to explore the beautiful country, culture and food!

  4. Bethany Macielag

    Sadly I have not been to many places, or researched many places, but I can say somewhere very quiet, warm, with breeze blowing, laying outside, reading and relaxing, and just clearing my mind.

    A place that I am familiar with at the moment that I would go to sit would be either a park by the lake, or in my back yard during the day when no one is home, including the neighbors, so it is a nice peaceful day.

  5. Lovely review … I loved this book & the little Irish history lesson … guess it was about time I learned something of my family history <3

  6. And … if I could go anywhere in the world … I’d probably visit Japan … how cool would that be?

  7. FMA

    Thank you, Kim! IKR? Great book, indeed! Japan, YES, that would be amazing. I love SUSHI 😉 I agree about the family history… that is a side of my Irish/ITALIAN heritage that gets overlooked!
