There’d been a Rivers at the helm of Argyle Community Hospital for six generations, and Harper Rivers was set to take her father’s place whenever he decided to hang up his shingle. Unfortunately, the board of directors had other ideas—they accepted a buyout offer from a health care conglomerate with plans to close the hospital’s doors to the community that depended on it. And Presley Worth, a high-powered corporate financier, came to town to oversee the closure. Funny thing was, no one asked Harper, and she had no intentions of following anyone’s orders but her own—no matter how beautiful, smart, or commanding the new boss might be.


Welcome to the Rivers

This is a story of a Dr in a comfortable rural life and the woman who has come to turn it upside down.

From the start I just could not see how there could be any kind of happiness for poor Presley. It truly seemed no matter what she did she was going to lose. I could completely understand her fierce pride and drive. All of the characters are so easily lovable. They are so easy to connect with. I love how the story flows, it carries you along as if you are floating along on a stream relaxing in the sunshine. I felt I was a part of the story like I was in the country on a warm summer day sitting on the porch instead of curled up under blankets fighting off the cold of a Midwestern winter.

I am not really sure how to phrase this right, please do not read this as negative for it is not. Radclyffe’s writing is plain and simple. Its not flowery or pretentious, its just down home hard working folk speak. It is part of the reason I like Radclyffe’s writing so much. I always know when I open a Radclyffe book I will find new friends to love or a family to become a part of.

I would love to see a follow up book with Carrie and Flann…
