    1. I got this book free on kindle years ago and since then, it just sat around not being read. However, after reading “The Vigilante's Bride” which was also written by Yvonne Harris, I moved on to this one. They both have very similar covers and since I don't have internet access to look these kind of things up right away, I assumed that they must be part of a series. However, that isn't the case. This second book that I read had no connections to The Vigilante's Bride. It isn't a series, for a [...]

    2. I’m afraid I can’t give a glowing review on every book I read and while there were enjoyable places in “A River to Cross”, I found a great deal of this story unbelievable. More than once during the book I thought a scene was not appropriate to the time period. And while I won’t enter into specifics as it would just be degrading, I will say I didn’t believe many of the events between the hero and heroine would actually happen. I thought several historical facts were also inaccurate. I [...]

    3. With a beautiful cover and enticing synopsis, I was looking forward to an adventurous read with a good mix of romance. Sadly, I was really disappointed in all areas. I’m not really sure, but overall, something rubbed me the wrong way in this book. One reviewer mentioned it had a “modern” feel to it, and after reflecting that, I have to agree.Many of the interactions between Jake and Elizabeth felt like they were forced or simply occurred so they could physically touch/embrace each other. I [...]

    4. Enjoyed this book, but got confused at times and forgot it was set in 1886. All the historical books I've read never talked about emergency rooms in their hospitals or the Texas Rangers going running in the morning or wearing black face paint and acting like modern day Special Ops men. Maybe I'm wrong :) but it was a nice light read.

    5. Once in a while I like to read a good Western romance. There's something about cowboys and the rugged setting of the Wild West that I find appealing. A River to Cross takes place in Rio Grande, Texas in 1886, where Elizabeth Evans is kidnapped after her brother is killed for exposing the dangers along the U.S.-Mexican border. Texas Ranger Jake Nelson is commissioned to rescue her and to apprehend Mexican General Manuel Diego who is responsible for bad relations between the two countries.Harris s [...]

    6. Elizabeth, an upcoming journalist at her brother's newspaper business and the daughter of a U.S. Senator, watches her brother get killed right in front of her eyes and then the killers decide to kidnap her and take her with them in hopes of using her for leverage! Texas Ranger Jake Nelson hears about the brutal murder of his friend and the kidnapping of the young beauty Elizabeth by the revolting Mexican Manuel Diego and decides he will not rest until she is safe and sound and Diego is brought t [...]

    7. Yvonne Harris in her new book, "A River to Cross" published by Bethany House Publishers brings us to Texas and the Rio Grande in 1886.From the back cover: On the lawless frontier, a Texas lawman is her only hope. Elizabeth Evan's brother paid the ultimate price as editor of a newspaper exposing the dangers along the U.S.-Mexican border. Determined to take up his cause, she's targeted and kidnapped by a rogue general-Manuel Diego.It's the job of Texas Ranger Jake Nelson to protect the border agai [...]

    8. Trust is something that both Jake and Elizabeth will need to do, especially the way they meet. Elizabeth is captured by Major Chavez, a man working for Manuel Diego, whose sole purpose is to stir up a war between the US and Mexico.Knowing what will happen to her if they don't attempt a daring rescue, late in the evening Jake and his Texas Rangers silently take care of Chavez's men one by one. Not hearing anything Elizabeth awakes to a blackened figure standing above her welding a knife. When she [...]

    9. A RIVER TO CROSS reminds me of a John Wayne Western. Seriously, except I don’t picture Jake as looking like John Wayne. Not really sure which actor I’d pick to play him. In any case, this would make a great movie. Elizabeth Evans’ brother is murdered and she is kidnapped – all in the first few pages. Talk about the action starting off with a bang! Texas Ranger Jake Nelson rides in to rescue Elizabeth. Getting out of Mexico alive proves to be a challenge – and puts Elizabeth and Jake in [...]

    10. Elizabeth Evans is Senator Madison's daughter and sister of Lloyd Madison, newspaper business man. Elizabeth and Lloyd were inside County Courthouse, in El Paso Texas, when all heck broke loose. She then finds herself in the clutches of Manuel Diego, a man who rules Mexico underbelly.Texas Ranger, Jake Nelson, hears of Senator Madison’s daugther kidnapping and sets out on a mission to find her. He’s determined to keep Elizabeth safe once he finds her and brings Manuel Diego to pay for his br [...]

    11. When I first started reading "A River to Cross", by Yvonne Harris, I was struck by dialogue and terminology which seemed inappropriate for the setting and era of the book, Texas of 1886. However, once the characters really developed and the story line deepened, I was hooked. Lloyd Evans is the owner and operator of the largest newspaper in El Paso, TX. An editor with a bold, investigative style, Lloyd is writing strong expose articles on the local crime element in the area. His reporting leads t [...]

    12. Every now and again you come across a good Christian Fiction novel that you can read and have finished quickly due to not being able to put it down , A River to Cross by Yvonne Harris was just that which I had expected due to liking her first novel The Vigilante's Bride. In A River to Cross we meet Elizabeth Madison , a journalist in the making and the daughter of a Senator. Home for the summer she decides to work in her older brother Logan's newspaper business rather than be an intern for her f [...]

    13. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the old west and Texas Rangers! A River to Cross gives us a glimpse into the history and life of the Texas Rangers in the late 1880's while weaving a sweet romance between a ranger and a senator's daughter. Neither Elizabeth or Jake are looking for love. Both use being a Texas Ranger as the reason. It was a demanding and dangerous life. Elizabeth already had a heartbreaking experience and didn't want a repeat. Jake knew there was no room for domes [...]

    14. I could have sworn I started a review to this, so now I am quite confused alas let's try again. Actually now that I think about it I know I did. Hmmm Oh well. When I first was introduced to the writing of Yvonne Harris in her first Bethany House Publishers Christian Historical Fiction The Vigilante's Bride I was nervous about starting into a new author, but was overly pleased to discover that I LOVED her writing almost as much as I adore Mary Connealy. (And if you know anything about my taste in [...]

    15. I love historical novels, and if they are set in the west then that's just an added bonus.In this one Yvonne Harris transports us back in time to August 1886 in El Paso Texas. Elizabeth Evans moves to Texas from Washington to look after her brother Lloyd and his daughter Ruthie after the death of his wife and newborn son, and in return he will teach her the newspaper business,but instead her brother is shot dead and Elizabeth is kidnapped by Mexican outlaws. When Jake Nelson, a Texas Ranger lear [...]

    16. Despite the heroine being a "newspaper woman" (which I despise), I decided to give this a try because I liked the idea of a Texas Ranger hero. I wish I had listened to my gut. This is set in the very late 1880s yet the dialog is modern, which is distracting. The whole feel of the book was "out of place". Texas Ranger Jake is an interesting character, yet as soon as he starts to divulge some of his past, the story goes off on a tangent. There is quite a bit of his POV, but again, goes off on a ta [...]

    17. I have to agree with many of the previous readers reviews. I had expected a lot out of this book but I was very unimpressed. The writing lacked the details that makes a novel complete and enthralling. While describing the people was fantastic, the writer never went very deep into the characters lives. I felt like there was a lot of thought put into the "happy ending", but not enough into the plot twist. Elizabeth was described, very close to her brother but after his death, there wasn't any mour [...]

    18. Murder, kidnapping, rescue, romance. This adventure has it all. In 1886, Lloyd Madison was murdered because he wrote revealing newspaper articles about what was really happening with the outlaws along the U. S.-Mexican border. When Lloyd’s sister, Elizabeth Evans, made plans to continue his work, she was kidnapped and taken into Mexico by the outlaws. The Texas Rangers set out to find her and bring her back, which was not easy. Then the renegades tried to take her hostage again, and the ranger [...]

    19. When your looking for a western book that has that real life feel to it, read this one! Jake Nelson is a Texas Ranger with a love for his Texas and his country. When duty calls he's all business until he met his match, Elizabeth Madison Evans. She turned his life upside down. This book is filled with real details and a very fun courtship. Story line is very well developed and has a true ring to it. The characters are the kind you would love to be friends with and the bad guys are the kind you re [...]

    20. A River to Cross is a western romantic fiction about a Senator’s daughter who is kidnapped by a rouge mexican general. Her love interest is a Texas Ranger given the job of protecting her. The story line was a good one however, I found that I kept having to remind myself of the date the story took place in. I felt that some things just sounded more modern 1900s then 1886. I also found it a little slow moving and it took me a while to get into it. I was hoping once I did, I would like it more. U [...]

    21. This was a well-written (the author, in my opinion, has grown and improved as a writer since her debut) story, and Elizabeth and Jake were interesting characters, though I felt the end was a little rushed. The story has a lot more politics and military details than one usually finds in these sorts of stories. I could tell the author did a lot of research, which I respect. On the whole, I liked it, but, I don't know, it just lacked that certain extramething that makes me love a book. *shrugs*

    22. ok, this was on it's way to a three star, but the last chapter ruined the whole experience for me!!!! I was looking for a gentle read, back-in-time romance, you know the type of book Hallmark would make a movie out of? well, this was going in that direction and then the author totally got side-tracked from her writing! the ending was the biggest disappointment ever!!!! well not ever, it did end happily, but no insights or details of the happiness, so i gave it 2 stars.

    23. I love to read books and watch movies, I'm usually in it for the pure entertainment. I really enjoyed the first part of this book. The story was interesting and engaging. I almost wanted to put it down though at the last part of the book. I found the events totally out of place for the time period that the book was written. It took the enjoyment out of the story for me.

    24. 2.5 stars: Not a bad story, but some scenes were hard to follow & seemed to jump around. I realize the female lead didn't have much of a choice but she didn't seem to care about modesty at all. I also find it hard to believe any highly trained Ranger wouldn't know how to swim. I'm sure there is a sequel but the ending was a little abrupt.

    25. Texas Rangers, a military fort, Mexican bandits, US senators, kidnapping, strong women, strong men and romancel in the same book. This was an interesting story about early Texas and it's lawmen that kept my interest. There were some exciting parts of TX history covered in the midst of a well-written story. I enjoyed it and will read more by this author.

    26. Another part of Texas history that I enjoy reading about is the history of the Texas Rangers. This novel was a quick but well done read for a cold Fall evening, and did a good job of portraying the role the Rangers played in helping Texas gain their independence from Mexico. Yvonne Harris is a Christian novelist who writes about real world events.

    27. WOW! Handsome, rugged, strong and ornery! That sums up Jake, the Texas Ranger, who takes it upon himself to ride into Mexico to rescue the beautiful Elizabath after she has been kidnapped. A daring rescue and a love that could soften even his hardened heart! Romantic, well written, well researched and a page turner that will keep you wanting more.

    28. I really liked this book it was about 65% romance so it wasnt too much but it was enough to be a romance novel. Part of what i liked about it was the mostly correct historical factuality. very predictable. clean with minimal swearing if any at all. i would recommend to anyone.
