I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Riverstar was a good, quick mystery that would be perfect to throw in your bag for a weekend get-away. The main character, Bella is extremely likeable. I wanted to hang with her and have her do my make-up. Her back story is tragic and sad, so it’s really hard not to like her. I love her closeness with her best friend, Gennie. Reminded me of me & btooth, how we can just sit in silence and know what the other one is thinking. I figured out the killer pretty early on, but was interested to know all the tidbits that went along with the mystery. This 3 star book is jam-packed with different characters, food, and hometown comradery. You’ll find yourself wishing you could take a trip to the town, xo.
