~Review: River Queen Rose by Shirley Kennedy~

Add to Goodreads

The ramshackle River Queen Hotel is home to vagabonds, gamblers, and heathens—and now, to new widow Rose Peterson. The rundown Gold Rush establishment is the only thing her late husband, Emmet, left her. Despite its raucous saloon and ladies of the evening, Rose can see the hotel’s potential. Her late husband’s family claim that sheltered Rose isn’t capable of running the Sacramento inn herself. But she is determined to make a new life for herself and her young daughter, even if it means flying in the face of custom and propriety. She feels as if she hasn’t a friend in the world.

Except, perhaps, one. Decatur “Deke” Fleming, a tall, lanky Australian who once served as Emmet’s farmhand. Pride prevents Deke from revealing his moneyed past; conscience keeps him from confessing his feelings for the still grieving widow. But when Rose is tempted by wealthy civic leader and hotel owner Mason Talbot, Deke may be the only person who can save her—and the one man capable of reviving her bruised and battered heart.

I would like to thank Goodreads and the Author of this book for providing a copy of this book to me.  I really enjoyed this book.  It is a sweet romance starring a recently widowed woman who is trying to find a place for herself after the death of her husband.  Her husbands family think that she is incapable of doing anything for herself much less taking ownership of the hotel that her husband left her.  This book is fast paced and a quick read complete with a love triangle.  You will not be disappointed with this book.
