Review of "River Whispers" by Kathi Oram Peterson and a Fantastic Giveaway!

Please watch thebook trailer before reading my review. Thanks! ;)

River Whispers is a novel very different from anything that Kathi Oram Peterson has ever written. She has written two young adult time travel books, The Forgotten Warrior and The Stone Traveler, and a best selling Christmas book, An Angel On Main Street. Now with River Whispers, she has written her first romantic suspense. Let's just say I was very impressed with this novel. Kathi did such a great job of hiding the true killer until the very end. She presented so many different suspects that by the end I was suspecting everyone in this small Idaho town.

River Whispers was written with two very strong lead characters. Regi and Samuel were romantically involved when they were teenagers. There were things that separated them and changed their lives. Now, many years later, Samuel is wanting to rekindle his relationship with Regi. Along the way there are many things still keeping them apart, including a murder. Regi and Samuel are both heavily involved as murder suspects. I loved both of these characters and was cheering them along hoping they would finally come together again. Once again, I found a man, Samuel, that I wish was around in real life. A girl can dream can't she?

I really loved the way that Kathi wrote this suspense novel. Each detail was laid out, chapter by chapter until finally you are able to piece the puzzle together. This is a fun novel to read. This has a little of everything, romance, suspense, humor, and of course the murder mystery. All I can say is "Nice job Kathi!" I hope that Kathi will write more romantic suspense. This book gets 4 1/2 stars from me!
