Review and Giveaway: The River Queen by Stephenia H McGee

Book Description: 


River pirates, a stolen steamboat, and a deadly chase down the Mississippi—but falling in love might be the real adventure.

When river pirates attack and steal his steamboat, Emmett Carter barely escapes. Rescued and transported to a magnificent world of glitz and showbiz aboard a flashy showboat, Emmett is immediately captivated by something more than recovering his lost inheritance—The River Queen’s beautiful, but quirky, songbird.

Anola Flynn, the star singer on The River Queen, is struggling to keep the business running as attendance dwindles during the 1923 season. With her dreams of saving the family legacy—and the only life she’s ever known—slipping away, she forges an alliance with Emmett to keep her family afloat.

Now, to outsmart the gangsters chasing them, Anola and Emmett must wade through a dark current of deception and betrayal to save not only their dreams, but everyone they care about, from sinking deeper into the Mississippi River.

My Review: 

The River Queen is the exciting start to talented author, Stephenia H McGee’s River Romances series. I adored Emmett and Anola’s story and traveling back in time to the 1920s era with them. I was fascinated with what transpired on the Mississippi River. I loved the addition of mystery and suspense that kept me intrigued from start to finish. I found it was a fabulous read to spend a few beautiful mornings on my back deck.

I am giving The River Queen a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean historical romantic fiction. I am eagerly waiting for the second installment from the River Romances series, Moonlight on the Mississippi.

I received a digital copy of Stephenia H McGee’s The River Queen from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
