In the third novel in nationally bestselling author K.A. Tucker’s romantic suspense series, a young woman travels to Dublin and finds herself at the scene of a crime—and falling for the guy who saves her.
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 can’t be identified at the scene—so, he fled. 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. Pushing her away 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.

This is a beautiful story of two people whose lives and hearts collide and the journey of the split second decision that brought them together. Chasing River is filled with mystery, angst and love that will have you glued to the pages wanting to know more.

His world is turned upside down the day he came to the rescue of a gorgeous American tourist. A tourist he never expected to see again until she shows up in his pub. Because of his brother he is hesitant about her, but he can't stay away from her…
River is so swoon worthy, yes he has a past but he is a good guy with a huge caring heart, the love for those he protects is beautiful. He knows he is no good for Amber but it doesn't stop him from trying. Amber is a great character, she always tries to do the right thing, especially when it comes to the law. Together Amber and River are two loveable characters whose journey together will pull you in and keep you enthralled. The one thing I loved about this book was the history and information about Ireland incorporated with Amber and River’s story.
This series is highly recommended, it has fast become one of our favourites.
