Reviewing and Reading books that were free or are free. You see, I finally caved and bought an eReader. Now I find I can't stop reading all the free books offered on the online market. Despite whether or not the book is a good read or not. In this blog I will weed through all books, whether it was amazing or a grammatically sad excuse for a book, because the point in the end is . . . HEY, IT WAS FREE!

My Thoughts:Think Of The Future
Oh my what a thrilling yet sweet reconciling romance! The main characters have a history and work through a lot, but the end is oh so sweet. The Riverbend series is definitely becoming one of my favorite curl up in a blanket with some hot coco reads.
Now that her daughter Anna is married and pregnant, Kathleen 'Kate' Baker is settling back into the peaceful town of Riverbend, TN. Kate is having to learn how to let go of all the bad memories from her past with her drunk father and abusive husband Tom. Especially, the night which lead to her packing up and fleeing Riverbend with Anna and leaving the one man she ever loved behind. Colum Harrow has only loved one woman even when she married an evil abusive man. So when Colum helped hide Kate from Tom in hopes of them finally having a chance and she suddenly left. Never knowing why Kate left has made Colum an emotional hermit and damaged his relationship with his nephew Liam. But when Kate arrives back in town and needs his help, Colum has to decide if opening up his heart to Kate is worth it?
Overall, loved it! The romance of reconciling the hurt of the past was beautiful, but the added the suspense added a special element as well. Having a book on Kate helped me understand and appreciate her character, since she seemed a bit odd and controlling with Anna in the first novel. However, this novel shows why and makes a reader see Kate in a different light. As for Colum, he's apparently not that grumpy old man I had pictured in my mind, but is a good hearted man who lost his heart and couldn't cope. I can't wait to read more tales from Riverbend, because for a small town they have a great group of people and stories to tell. Plus there is a baby on the way. So if you love a woman trying to free herself from an abusive elusive man while entering a into a relationship that is way past due, you love this book.
