Wow, this is an awesome Romantic Suspense!!! I literally could not put it down. I read it in less than a day. Then I went back and skimmed through it and read the best parts over again! This is only the second fiction book for Kathy Harris and she very quickly moved to my very favorites list!

I couldn’t figure out what Danni could see in Robert Evan’s, the man just acted fake. And being on the road all of the time, it wasn’t really that hard to figure out what was going on. I’m glad she had Caleb to look out for her. And of course with the suspense, we mostly know who the bad guys are, it’s just wondering when the big bust would be. One of the main things I like about this book is the education you get on what really happens to young people who try their hand at drugs. And what happens when businessmen as well as anyone really, can see all of that dirty money they can make. Much more than they can with a regular job. But this story also shows what happens in the end. How much I wish every young person would read books like this, and get a glimpse of the life with drugs.

I also appreciate the Christian’s in this story, living their lives in our everyday world. This story is so realistic. It’s like listening to the news or reading the newspaper. If you love a good clean romance with a lot of suspense mixed in, you will love this one.

The Art of Rivers (Coastal Hearts #3) By Janet W. Ferguson

Christian Contemporary Romance Paperback & ebook, 299 Pages June 30th 2019 by Southern Sun Press LLC.

About This Book

​Rivers Sullivan bears both visible and invisible scars—those on her shoulder from a bullet wound and those on her heart from the loss of her fiancé during the same brutal attack. Not even her background as an art therapist can help her regain her faith in humanity. Still, she scrapes together the courage to travel to St. Simons Island to see the beach cottage and art gallery she’s inherited from her fiancé. When she stumbles upon recovering addicts running her gallery, she’s forced to reckon with her own healing.

After the tragic drowning of his cousin, James Cooper Knight spends his days trying to make up for his past mistakes. He not only dedicates his life to addiction counseling, but guilt drives him to the water, searching for others who’ve been caught unaware of the quickly rising tides of St. Simons. When he rescues a peculiar blond woman and her sketch pad from a sandbar, then delivers this same woman to his deceased grandmother’s properties, he knows things are about to get even more complicated.

Tragic circumstances draw Cooper and Rivers closer, but they fight their growing feelings. Though Cooper’s been sober for years, Rivers can’t imagine trusting her heart to someone in recovery, and he knows a relationship with her will only rip his family further apart. Distrust and guilt are only the first roadblocks they must overcome if they take a chance on love.


A few months ago I read Janet Ferguson’s book, Magnolia Storms, and it was such an awesome  story, I loved it. So when Art of Rivers came up for review, I knew it would be a great read, and it was. I enjoyed this book so much. I quickly fell in love with the characters, they all were so realistic and developed so well throughout this story. My heart hurt for Rivers because of the tragic past she has endured. And Cooper was nothing like I expected, he had my heart from the beginning. And the work he does is not only rewarding, but it’s life changing, in a world that needs people like him so much.

Rivers has been through so much, and trying to deal with the house full of things her fiancee has left her wasn’t easy, but it had to be done. But she had no idea what she would fine. And Cooper was doing what he felt the Lord wanted him to do, stay clean and sober and do whatever he can to make a difference in people’s lives. And after five years, it was still difficult. And the only way he survived was Trusting in the Lord. You don’t want to miss finding out what happens to these two broken people, with a tragic past. A past that God takes them from completely, and gives them a new hope, a new meaning.

I love and appreciate the way Ms. Ferguson clearly shows Jesus in the lives of her characters, and does it in a way that doesn’t offend. It just sounds like Christians today living their everyday lives. This is an enjoyable book for anyone wanting a good clean read. And the cover is beautiful, the name very clever, so what’s there to loose!
