Chasing River

(Burying Water #3)


K. A. Tucker



Chasing River is the third of the Burying Water series.  Set in Dublin we follow the adventures of Amber Welles and Ivy.  Ivy could not be more different in attitude and demeanour to Amber.

Having just commenced her European holiday Amber finds herself in some interesting situations in Dublin where schoolmate Ivy is working as a tattoo artist.

In writing Chasing River again Tucker focuses on one character from Burying Water.  This time it is conscientious Amber Welles, the Sheriff’s daughter.  Again there is romance, and villains all mixed together, however, the villains of Chasing River are not Russian but Irish.


The one thing I do like about KA Tuckers books is that she introduced all characters in book one and each book thereafter has been about a different character from book one, with just enough ties to the main Burying Water characters to keep the series alive.

As with all Tucker books so far Chasing River was, overall, well-paced and left us want to know more.

The only negative I can think of was what I will term a slow patch where I thought the author was going to relive every single part of earlier Burying Water books.  The background story would be helpful for those readers picking up Chasing River as a standalone novel.

A much heavier bird than I thought it would  be.
