“Tag. I found you.”
Just as Annie Bell’s reputation as one of the best chefs in the Pacific Northwest grows to new
heights, she receives a threatening phone call from her abusive ex-boyfriend. Marco is out on
parole and hungry for revenge, blaming her for his ten-year imprisonment. Fearing for her life and
that of her young son, Annie reluctantly accepts help from Drake Webber, a cold and wealthy
recluse hiding a dark history of his own. Supported by the gang of misfits from their restaurant
Riversong, Annie forges ahead despite her growing terror that Marco will appear at any moment
and make good on his threats.
Author Tess Thompson reunites the colorful cast of endearing small-town characters from
her bestselling novel Riversong and takes you on a journey that will renew your faith in love,
friendship and the power of community – even in the face of seemingly insurmountable grief and
fear. You’ll find yourself once again cheering for the residents of River Valley, especially the big-
hearted and compassionate Annie Bell.
Escape with a blend of love, laughter, friendship, suspense and gourmet food while remembering
it’s never too late for second chances.
