Review of Riverbend Road by RaeAnne Thayne

Brief Summary: 

Wyn Bailey has always done everything that her family has expected of her. Following in her father's foot steps, she became a police officer for the local Haven Point police department after her twin passed away unexpectedly. However,  years later after pulling two boys out of a fire and getting put on a weeks suspension for ignoring orders, Wynn now questions what she really wants to do with her life. Not to mention she now is starting to see the chief, Cade Emmett as more than just a boss and family friend. Will Wyn decide to stay in Haven Point or will she decide to take a different path? Can she ignore the feelings burning inside of her for Cade or will she given in? 

Cade Emmet had never felt like he was part of a family until he met the Bailey's so when the girl he once saw as as the kid sister of his best friend and a subordinate at his police department as something more he tries to deny/ignore the feelings. However, after she is almost harmed in the line of duty and he almost loses her, he starts to feel something more and thinks about giving into his feelings. Will Cade be able to keep things professional or will he let his feelings get in the way? 

My Review:

I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. This is # 4 in the Haven Point series by RaeAnne Thayne. I have been a fan of RaeAnne Thayne's books since I won a free book in the Hope Crossing series from Goodreads, so when I got the opportunity to read this book I jumped at the chance. RaeAnne like many of my other favorite authors does a great job of really developing the characters in her books. That was no different in this book with Wyn and Cade. I really felt like these two characters were well constructed and written. She gives you enough of their past to understand why they are the way they are but not too much where you feel like it is boring and lose interest. 

In addition, I really enjoyed how she set the scene. She really made you feel like you were part of town of Haven Point and living in the country with Cade and Wyn.

Finally the item that I find in all of RaeAnne's books that really makes them stand out would be how she incorporates friending and family in her books. For instance in this book she touches on loss, new friendship, and family play an important part in a persons life. She does a great job of also making the stories she tells realistic. 

I am very interested to read the next book in this series and to see who the next two characters are that will play the main characters.
