By the River by Jennie Hanse, Blog Tour, Review, & Giveaway!

 Book Summary:

It was supposed to be a relaxing early morning run, but the path along the river trail quickly turns into the scene of a nightmare for recent college graduate Kira Paxton. An unintended exploration of a secluded riverbank leads to a gruesome discovery that sets her on a collision course with danger: it is the body of a young woman. In shock, all Kira can manage to do is scream . . . From the moment Ford Kettering hears the cries for help along the trail, he is drawn irrevocably into a mystery in which he plays a shocking role. Ford, a local high school teacher, had a recent classroom clash with the victim—now, he’s a person of interest. As Ford and Kira bond over their shared ordeal, they work together to prove Ford’s innocence—and soon, their attraction is undeniable. But it seems that Kira’s nightmare is far from over. What begins as a series of close calls and acts of vandalism soon escalates, putting Kira’s own life in jeopardy. It appears that Kira saw something that day along the trail, something that has made her a target. With Ford’s help, she is determined to track down the killer—before she becomes the next victim.

My Review:

Hansen wastes no time in opening the book with a frightening discovery and a mystery as to how it happened. Enter Kira and Ford who meet by happenstance and are both tangled up in the mystery. Hansen creates realistic suspense, flawed characters that make them seem real and a mystery that I couldn't for anything figure out! Usually in mysteries I can follow the clues and figure it out before the main character, but Hansen does a fabulous job keeping the reader wondering and engaged until the very end! If you like a good murder mystery and love story then you will certainly love By the River!

Happy Reading!!!
