Title: The River of No Return
Author: Bee Ridgway
Genre: paranormal, historical, time-travel
Release date: April 23, 2013 by Dutton Adult


“You are now a member of the Guild. There is no return.” Two hundred years after he was about to die on a Napoleonic battlefield, Nick Falcott, soldier and aristocrat, wakes up in a hospital bed in modern London. The Guild, an entity that controls time travel, showers him with life’s advantages. But Nick yearns for home and for one brown-eyed girl, lost now down the centuries. Then the Guild asks him to break its own rule. It needs Nick to go back to 1815 to fight the Guild’s enemies and to find something called the Talisman.

In 1815, Julia Percy mourns the death of her beloved grandfather, an earl who could play with time. On his deathbed he whispers in her ear: “Pretend!” Pretend what? When Nick returns home as if from the dead, older than he should be and battle scarred, Julia begins to suspect that her very life depends upon the secrets Grandfather never told her. Soon enough Julia and Nick are caught up in an adventure that stretches up and down the river of time. As their knowledge of the Guild and their feelings for each other grow, the fate of the future itself is hanging in the balance.

    I am already almost drowning in my books, and you tell me there is another huge list for next week? Pff. For this week, I am tempted by a few perhaps, but the one I really want is the Amanda Quick. But, I will have to wait for a cheap paperback version.

    Just bought this morning Mystery Woman by Amanda Quick.

    I really love Julie James’ lawyer books, so I’m curious about Sarah Castille’s “Legal Heat.”

    Does anyone else look at these covers and guess at the plot of the books? I do that. Sometimes I check to see if I am right – but I generally assume I am, and just go with it.

    The Ridgway book is on my wish list. The ebook is $15 in the US, just a buck less that the paper book. It figures that it’s Penguin–a lot of the overpriced ebooks on my wish list are Penguins. Boo hiss, Penguin.

    That said, I did get the Rogers, Meding, and Carlson books–even tho I have yet to start any of those series yet. (What is wrong with me?!)

    Years ago, Candace Camp used to be an autobuy for me, but we seem to have parted ways. No hard feelings; the formula just got old.

    And, yes, draconismoi, I think we usually can judge a book by its cover. Maybe not the quality of the writing, but certainly the essence of the plot.
