About Journey to Riverbend

Michael Archer is nothing if not a man of his word. Though he was unable to save Ben Carstairs, Michael is determined to carry out Ben’s dying wish: to be reconciled with his father. Unfortunately, Sam Carstairs, one of the most ruthless businessmen on the frontier, has no use for his own son, much less a man of God seeking reconciliation.


Soon after arriving in Riverbend, Michael meets and falls for the stunning Rachel Stone while waiting for Sam to return from a business trip. Beautiful yet guarded, Rachel seems to be running from a past as dark as Michael’s.


When word reaches town that Sam has been kidnapped on the stagecoach home, Michael offers to join the search party formed by the local sheriff. With a budding romance behind him and a dangerous rescue ahead of him, he sets out on the trail, determined to complete his journey no matter the cost.


My Thoughts:

Journey to Riverbend is an amazing book! If you like a good western, then this book is for you. There is just enough romance without going overboard and a lot of western action. *Which I love!* Mr. McLaughlin is a new to me author and I'll be looking forward to more of his books. I was captivated by the characters and their lives.

Journey to Riverbend is written where you will be drawn in and feel all the excitement, frustration, worries, hurt feelings and happiness that the book has to offer. Mr. McLaughlin kept with a realistic view of Christians and non believers and their daily walk in life.  I was a little disappointed with the ending of the book, but I'm hoping that is because there will be a sequel (hint, hint, hint).

I received this book for free from Tyndale House Publishers in return for my honest opinion.
