.:{ Book Review - A River To Cross }:.

I'm SO behind on this review. I read this book last month but honestly couldn't remember where I got it from. I knew it was a review book. Today as I was looking at my emails I saw Bethany House Book Review emails and did a quick search to realize that was where this book came from. I deeply apologize for the lateness. This review does have spoilers.

Reading the book A River to Cross by Yvonne Harris was pretty simple and quick. I could have read it in less than a day had I not had children to take care of :) The book is based in El Paso during the early Texas Ranger days in 1850s. Elizabeth Evans is your typical New England educated lady who decided to move to El Paso by the U.S.-Mexican borders to help her brother out with his newspaper. Unfortunately her brother gets killed and Elizabeth gets kidnapped. Texas Ranger Jake Nelson and his team come to her rescue. Crossing into dangerous Mexico is the only way to save her. Along the way they find the truth behind Manuel Diego and his plot to overrule the Mexican President by starting a war with the U.S.

The ending of the book seemed to drag on a bit but overall this was a good fictional story set into Texas history. For those that love western romance, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I did find some errors throughout the book, hopefully these have been fixed.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Bethany House as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. Theopinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."
