Heartbreak River

Heartbreak River
By: Tricia Mills

Alex thought she’d be spending the summer focused on her family’s rafting business, burying the memories of her father’s death last year, and leaving behind all the messes she made in its wake.

But when Sean returns to town, she is forced to reckon with her mixed-up crushy feelings for him—more powerful than ever before. It takes another tragedy to make Alex realize Sean has loved her, and forgiven her, all along.

My Rating: 3/5

This book was just okay. It was definitely an entertaining read because I read it rather quickly but there was just something lacking for me. I never really connected with many of the characters and even in the end, when something unfortunate and horrible occurs to someone in particular, I didn't really feel as affected by it as I should have. To clarify, I didn't dislike the characters although I wasn't very drawn to them either. I liked the romance aspects of this book; I felt they're what carried the story; at least they're what kept me wanting to know more.

If you're interested in reading Heartbreak River I still think that you should. It's not horrible by any means although I would probably look into borrowing it from the library as opposed to purchasing it.


  1. I agree about not connecting with the characters, I was the same. It was a good story, but something was missing.

  2. Excellent review. I'm only interested in reading your 4 or 5 star reviews so I will pass on this one. Here's hoping that your next read rates better :)
