About this ebook

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan goes all in with this sexy romantic thriller set among the dangers—both man-made and natural—of Nevada’s breathtaking landscape.
Vienna Mortenson isn’t your typical gambler. She prefers to stay under the radar, using her poker winnings to support her family and her community, including the local search and rescue team, which she heads up. Out in the backcountry there’s no time for hesitation when lives are on the line. Vienna prides herself on being tough and decisive. She’s not the sort to make a fool of herself over a guy, especially one who left her high and dry without a backward glance.
Zale Vizzini’s job constantly puts him in harm’s way. Working undercover and disappearing for months at a time isn’t exactly a recipe for a stable relationship. Despite the challenges and the risks, Zale wants something real with Vienna. He just needed time to figure out how to be in her life without putting her in danger. Now, he’s determined to win her back, and he’s ready to lay all his cards on the table.
As their friends’ wedding approaches, Zale takes advantage of the festivities to make a play for Vienna’s heart. But there are more deadly forces waiting to strike in the rugged terrain of Nevada and the western Sierras. Soon both of their lives are threatened, and the odds are stacked against them....

RED ON THE RIVER is another complex, detailed and informative story line often over-focusing on poker, poker play, and card combinations, as well as an exhaustive account of hiking, and mountain climbing. As per Christine Feehan’s style of writing, there is a slight paranormal aspect to the series but the author steers clear of any erotic $ex scenes or the use of strong language.

I was able to get into the story okay and the premise of the story is good, but I had questions about some of the occurrences during Vienna's stay at the hotel and things that happened to her. The story got really bogged down while the girls went on their trip. You learn tons on gambling and wilderness climbing. I flipped through several pages during that long section. I'm guessing more back story is given for the ladies for this, I'm assuming, is a series, but it caused the story to drag. There were long sections of back story and no action. I appreciate that the graphic love scenes are not there and the cursing kept at a minimum. Even if the F bomb was dropped a few times. My theory is if you have a good story, you don't need all those things. All-in-all, this is a good story, and if you enjoy CF, you'll like this book.

Red on the River is an intriguing romantic suspense; it took me a bit to really get into it as I found the details of the poker tournaments a bit overly detailed, but I got more involved as the story went on and the outdoor adventure scenes were much more exciting. The romance between Zale and Vienna was conflicted and sweet - this book is not steamy like Ms. Feehan's other series' All in all this was a good read. I'll be looking for the next in this series!
