Review #174: Riverbend: The Collection- Andrea Goodson

Summary: All three novels in The Riverbend Trilogy in one digital boxed set. Riverbend: The Collection includes Riverbend, Rapid Water, and Waking Tide.

Nestled deep in Northwest Pennsylvania, in the thick forest of the Allegheny Mountains, is a quiet community named Kennerdell. Rich in both Native American and European settlement history with few inhabitants and a charming culture, growing up there was simple for Lena Woodruff.

But when grief stepped in and darkened her life-everything changed. After years of escape, Lena is forced to return home.

A web of mystery and danger that dates back to America’s earliest days quickly weaves around her and when a longtime friend, one who knows the tragedy that plagues Lena's heart, comes back into her life - things get complicated.

Grief darkens her thoughts while insecurity and self-doubt cause the lines between reality and imagination to blur. Just when she thinks she can't take anymore, a small glimmer of hope arises.

A sudden and unexpected need for love begins a conflict between self-doubt and the promise of something better.

Where strength can be weakness and vulnerability-an asset, the greatest danger that threatens Lena in Kennerdell may just be herself.

Will she be able to unfold the truth around this mystery or will it be easier to run away?

Love, danger, and history collide in Riverbend: The Collection.
Title: Riverbend: The Collection
Author: Andrea Goodson
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
The collection is all three of Andrea Goodson's Riverbend trilogy in one. I already have read Riverbend book one so I just read book two and three for this review. I found these books to be quick and easy to read and I did enjoy that the story carried right over from book one.after reading Riverbend, I had made some predictions and even with the author throwing twists and turns that almost lead me to think otherwise, my predictions were correct. I still really enjoyed all of the mystery surrounding everything. This series is definitely a fast paced thriller.
Lena made me mad as a character because she was so hot/ cold with Will and wasn't being true to her feelings. I was sad to see some characters leave because good or bad you become attached. I also really liked Lena's sister Gabby. She was almost a side story, trying to find out who she was and mature.i am happy for the most part with how this story played out.
This is a greats series to pick up if you are into mystery/ thrillers. I would say that if you aren't really feeling book one keep going because I liked two and three better haha. I would recommend this trilogy to people looking for a quick and fun (well as much as it can be) mystery.
