Cover and Blurb Reveal: River Road by Jayne Ann Krentz

I have yet to read Deception Cove by Jayne Ann Krentz, under the penname Jayne Castle, which releases on August 27th. But I’m already anticipating Ms. Krentz’s next release, River Road, which releases in hardback on January 7th, 2014 (incidentally, this is also my sister’s birthday).

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 . . .

Ms. Krentz had been a long-time favourite of mine and I pretty much auto-buy her books.

What about you? Do you have any favourite authors that are on your auto-buy lists?

  1. Hi Rika
    I pretty much auto-buy Janet Evanovich books. I love the way she combines humour, crime and a woman’s priorities.
    River Road sounds interesting, will give it a read, thanks.
    Cheers

    • Hi!

      Thanks for stopping by and the recommendation. I have yet to read a Janet Evanovich novel, so I’ll be sure to give her a try.

      Jayne Ann Krentz is usually great, so I’m hoping River Road lives up! 😀
