you ve read Burying Water than you know, Amber is Jesse s sister and the ultimate good girl She s uber responsible and let s be honest, she s played it safe for most of her life I m talking safe with a capital S It s a broken heart that makes her realize it s time to live a little Time to get out there and experience life on her own terms With plane tickets, plenty of plans and her bucket list in tow, she embarks on a three month solo journey around the world.I have to admit, it was a little bit of a rough start for me I wasn t completely sold on the whole IRA terrorist storyline in the beginning and let me explain why Within the first few chapters, there s a pipe bomb blast in the middle of a park where no one seems to be around Well, accept for this lone American girl and her Superman poised to save the day ReallyWouldn t a terrorist want to send a bigger message That thought, combined with who was involved, had me thinking this might not be a well executed storyline I m eating those words now and happy to be As I came to understandof the Irish history as outlined in the book , how River s family was involved with the IRA and how things are being taken out of context with the newer generation it made sense and feltbelievable, for the most part.I haven t dabbled in this genre much lately and because of that, I almost managed to forget how great of a storyteller K.A Tucker is This time around, she combines a chance encounter, an old Irish bar, a pilfered bucket list, great secondary characters and even some mild suspense And like the majority of the couples in her books, Amber and River have a undeniable connection One that only continues to build as the story progresses I liked that Amber was the one to track River down, despite her inner critic and worries, and give chase Doesn t life have a funny way of working out sometimes We think we know what we need, when in fact it s something or someone else entirely.That epilogue and almost every scene with Rowen, left me wanting a story from his perspective Dying for it actually What a tease Looks like K.A Tucker has moved on to other things though So, I ll just have to be happy with Ivy s story, sans Rowen, I guessThank you to Atria and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review. 4 STARSSo far I have read only the first book of this series and now this one and I can say this is the

there is a lot of history information that at the beginning I was a little confused but soon while I readI couldn t put it down.The beginning was good started dynamic then it was a little slow for my taste but after this,the last quarter was good and I couldn t stop reading until I see what will happen I liked Amber s character a lot, because I find some elements in her that I can relate with mine and this make me connect a lot with her character River is an interesting character.Apart from the characters,I also loved the bond Amber has with her father and River with his family In general it

his eyes conveyed so many things from pleading to insistent I like men like I like my coffeehot, strong and Irish Okay, I don t really drink coffee but if did that would work for me River has a bad

version 3.5 stars Before I even begin my review, I have to mention that Chasing River is the first book in almost a week that I can say I actually enjoyed, read in one sitting, and never had the urge to DNF and move on from, so in a way this book s already a winner K.A Tucker writes some of the most complex yet touching stories and I m a gigantic fan of hers I ADORED her Ten Tiny Breaths series as those books had the perfect amount of angst, heartbreak, and romance As for the Burying Water series, 3.5 stars Before I even begin my review, I have to mention that Chasing River is the first book in

complex yet touching stories and I m a gigantic fan of hers I ADORED her Ten Tiny Breaths series as those books had the perfect amount of angst, heartbreak, and romance As for the Burying Water series, my love for these books has been pretty inconsistent so far Book 1 was just okay for me, book 2 I loved and is a top favorite of mine, and book 3 this book overall was just okay Don t get me wrong I still enjoyed it and I have little to no complaints about it It s justhave you ever read a book where everything goes the way it s supposed to be and the story flows but when the book ends, you just don t feel any way about it Don t hate it, don t love it but it was still a nice book that helped pass the time and provided a temporary escape from reality That s my reaction to Chasing River River and Amber were likable characters and the atmospheric Ireland setting was a refreshing change of scenery My guess to why I felt indifferent about this book is that there wasn t much development in either the romance or suspense part of the story that got my heart beating excitedly instead, there was a huge focus on Irish history and culture that I just wasn t interested in The author definitely did her research While I feel that this book was just mediocre overall, I can t deny that the writing is high quality, plus the fact that it read well and had me interested enough that I finished proves to me that K.A Tucker just can t write a bad book I m already looking forward to book 4 in this series Surviving Ice as the heroine Ivy is a much darker,intriguing character that ll make for an intense read.P.S Sorry that this review is so much shorter and less detailed than normal Usually books that I feel meh about the plot and characters I don t have much to say ARC

throw caution to the wind and give in to her attraction to a man, who has many hidden secrets, or not After all one of her things to do in her travel bucket list seems possible here s this gorgeous man, who seems to be available This is really a sweet story, filled with quirky and interesting and endearing characters, set in the amazing Irish country In fact, the author s vivid setting makes the places come alive It felt as if I was actually walking around the dark streets of Dublin, going from pub to pub, drinking Guinness and listening to Irish tales and history loved when River gets up in the dark and smoky bar and tells the story of his family The city of Dublin is like another character in this story.Even though I enjoyed the Irish history, I did feel at times it dragged on a bit I would have liked to haveromance between River Amber.What I liked about this story River Amber.they were such a cute couple and the whole it s going to happen now and it doesn t.River s family especially his younger brother.I was so bummed out about what happens to him at the end Ivy.wow.I can t wait for her story The ending just perfect And totally so real.Whilst this was not my favorite book in this series, I still found it an exciting addition to the series It was a sweet and enchanting story of the two most unlikely people to find a HEA together This book could be read as a standalone but its better if you read the previous books get some back story on Amber Check out my reviews on Books 1 2https www.goodreads.com book show 2https www.goodreads.com book show 2 3.5 Stars

say I was excited when realized out who Amber was Always the good gir 3.5 Stars SoWhere d you meet this guy At the park one day He kind ofran into me Sounds romantic It was, in a way If pipe bombs

one of the 2 characters that were introduced in the previous one, I have to say I was excited when realized out who Amber was Always the good girl to her troublemaking twin brother, I couldn t wait to find out what her story will bring I have to say,while I enjoyed this book, comparing to the first two it was probably my least favorite in the series That s not to say it wasn t good, because it really was I adore KA Tucker s writing style and her ability to bring her words to life With the previous two books being in Oregon, it was a great change of pace to get the beauty of Ireland in this one.Amber Welles is coming off a break up She s always been the good girl, the good daughter, popular girl and all around perfect She has a great job as a nurse, she has great friends or so she thinks , but she s yearning forSo she makes herself a bucket travel lists and sets off for sights unseen But when she gets lost in Dublin, a run in with a guy with piercing green eyes leaves her rattled inways than one.River Delaney has been on the wrong side of the law before, mostly thanks to his criminal older brother and his ties to the IRA He s not looking to be caught there again When he follows his recently out of prison brother and catches him laying a pipe bomb in the middle of St Stephen s Green, he s not exactly shocked But when he sees a lost American tourist about to run right into the bomb s path, he knows he has to do something So he saves her and takes off before he can be tied to anything.Amber can t seem to get the man that saved her life out of her mind and when she s able to track him down to his family s pub, she knows that she needs to get to know him He affects her like no other man has in her life He s also the exact opposite of any man she s ever dated, and yet she s inexplicably drawn to him.Although I wasn t sure what to expect from Amber with her good girl thought process, she really pleasantly surprised me I really enjoyed her character and the way she chased River even though it wasn t in her comfort zone River was a hero that I liked straight away He s sweet and caring but with a little edge to him I loved the relationship he had with his brother Rowen Though I was shocked at the development between Ivy and Rowen Wonder if this book is the last we ve seen of him So why notstars I felt that for the type of reader I am there was a little too much concentration on history and suspense than the romance While that may work very well for other readers, I found it added a certain disconnect for me Don t get me wrong, it was interesting to read about but not something I would typically turn to, if that even makes sense This series isn t too heavy on the romance and it s not the HEA endings I usually like It s suspenseful and gives the reader a very satisfying HFN I just found the previous two books to be a littleenjoyable The Burying Water series isn t heavy on romance or steam If I had to rate the steam on a scale of 1 10, I d say it s a 3 That s not why I read this series, though It offers something different from the usual mainstream romance you d find It has suspense and mystery with the added element of romance I just felt a slight disconnect with this one for reason I can t quite put my finger one That being said, I d definitely recommend this book for fans of the series.I like that while the characters are interconnected, the books can easily be read as standalones So if you haven t read the previous two books, you wouldn t be even a little lost jumping right into this one I would recommend the other two books simply because they were fantastic and it does give the reader a better understanding of some of the secondary characters that make an appearance ARC courtesy of publisher via Netgalley in

trying to hold back when reading books that are written about other countries by authors who aren t actually connected with those in any way other than maybe as a tourist It feels like K.A Tucker had

storyline, that is something I can promise First of all, the way Amber and River meet, reasons for which she looks for him and, in the end, how everything unravels is main reason for my five stars

so well done And it s so muchthan your run of the mill romance I was astounded by how easily I found myself enveloped in a world of rich Irish landscapes and deep traditions I think I got a history lesson in there too but it was woven so perfectly into this fabulous story, I never felt like I was being preached at but I definitely came away with a much deeper understanding and appreciation for Irish nationalism Considering my last name is Bailey, I m guessing this lesson was long overdue.Now, lets talk romance because there s so much of it in this story River and Amber are an unexpectedly perfect couple Their first meeting is certainly not average and leads to a tremulous situation While they both feel strongly for each other, circumstance overshadows that connection They both want , but history and geography may keep them apart Such beautiful angst Not melodramatic or over the top or juvenile in nature just wonderfully real I adored River and everything he did to win Amber s heart Want to meet a true knight in shining armor I think his name is River Delaney he lives in this book he may argue about that title, but trust me you d want him to save you too Amber, on the other hand while I loved her strength in character, I found her to be a bit too much of a goody goody for a large part of the story that turned me off but she did come around eventually, so I forgave her.There is some really good suspense and action in this book as well The entire story is focused around events that had me holding my breath Romantic suspense is definitely one of my favorite genres I love it evenwhen it s so authentic None of the events felt forced or manufactured, it was beautifully organic The tense moments really added a great complexity to the story and heightened my feelings toward the characters as well.A beautiful story that I would highly recommend to anyone Now I plan to go catch up with the rest of KA Tucker s books I think I ve been missing out
