REVIEW: Mulberry Hollow by Denise Hunter is the second of three books in A Riverbend Romance Series. The first book is Riverbend Gap. I fell in love with the first book and couldn’t resist another vist with the characters and the town of Riverbend Gap.
If you haven’t read the first book yet, you don’t have to as these books do well on their own but, I highly recommend this series. It is just the kind of place and the kind of people I would like to live in and around. There is one more book to this series and I can’t wait for that one but, on the otherhand, I’m not looking forward to the end. I always hate to see a good series come to an end. I think I could live in them for a long time.
Denise Hunter has a writing style that just brings her stories to life. You don’t have to think about it. It flows so easily and pulls you forward from page one. There is not a great mystery other than what happens to the characters and where life will lead them. Her characters are full of love for their town, family and helping where they can.
If you love a good clean story that has characters that mean something to you and worm their way into your heart, this is a series for you. It brings out all the feels and makes you happy you found the little town of Riverbend Gap. I hope you’ll join me in reading this series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from #Netgalley, #ThomasNelsonPublishing. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

SYNOPSIS: Living life to the fullest always requires sacrifice.
Avery Robinson decided to be a physician after helplessly watching her mother lose a battle with a terrible disease. Now at risk of developing the same illness, Avery guards her heart from love. She’s driven to protect her loved ones as a workaholic doctor in the tiny mountain town of Riverbend Gap, North Carolina.
Contractor Wes Garrett is hiking the Appalachian trail, in memory of the man who died saving his life, when an illness racks his body. After an agonizing fifteen-mile hike to Avery’s clinic, he collapses on her doorstep. He recovers to find himself in debt again, this time to a beautiful doctor.
When he decides to help her renovate a rundown carriage house, the obstacles to their attraction sprout like weeds—starting with the woman waiting for Wes at the end of the trail. Will he be able to relinquish the debt he owes his best friend? And will Avery find the courage to risk everything for love?
The second book in Denise Hunter’s popular Riverbend Romance series explores what it might be like to live fearlessly and free.
