Why do I have it? I like contemporary fiction and Annie Greene looked like a new author to me.
This story is a love story of a fashion. It is about a young ne’er-do-well man named Darcy and his relationships with the three women in his life who try to love him. Darcy is a drunk and his mother is currently taking care of his son.
Jessie has recently broken up with her latest boyfriend -a shy, quiet poet. Jessie then turns her attention to the charming Darcy in order to start an affair which is bound to bring them both to tears. Ellen also has her eye on Darcy as well.
Mixed in with this plot is a lot of Gothic melodrama: murder, mayhem and mystery; that sort of thing. I liked this story, but this is actually the second time that I read it. I had read it years ago and forgotten most of the plot.. It lost a little of its charm the second time around for me.
However, Bright River Trilogy was still a very good book and it was a fast read for me. I gave it an A!
A! – (90-95%)
