“Rebecca Hodge is quickly becoming the master of gripping, life altering, realistic action fiction. In Over the Falls, she creates that perfect blend of physical and emotional survival that keeps the pages turning.”
—Diane Chamberlain, New York Times bestselling author of Big Lies in a Small Town

"Over the Falls has a heart that roars even louder than the rapids. As a young man journeys to build a family for himself out of rubble, and his aunt battles to get past the implosion of her former life, Rebecca Hodge reminds us that it's never too late to begin again. A blend of domestic suspense with the kind of nature thriller that is fast becoming its own sub-genre, Hodge's novel will be gobbled down by fans of Michael Koryta's Those Who Wish Me Dead."
—Jenny Milchman, USA Today bestselling author of Cover of Snow and The Second Mother

“Rebecca Hodge's Over the Falls is a well-crafted suspense full of richly drawn characters and unexpected twists. I couldn’t put it down!"
—Mary Burton, New York Times bestselling author of the Criminal Profiler series

For fans of The River at Night, Rebecca Hodge's next thrilling read explores how far one woman will go to find her sister.

Bryn Collins moved to the Eastern Tennessee mountains and never looked back when, fourteen years ago, her fiancé, Sawyer, jilted her for her despised sister, Del. Sawyer was later killed in a plane crash, but Bryn has never been able to forgive her sister for what she did, and instead chooses to spend her days in the idyllic beauty of the rugged landscape. Although a life-threatening accident ended her days navigating the perils of whitewater, she still finds refuge kayaking in the local lakes.

But Bryn's placid life hits the skids when an unwelcome cast of characters reenters her life. Del goes mysteriously missing, leading her fourteen-year-old son, Josh, to Bryn's doorstep for help. Then Carl, a trouble-making outcast the sisters knew years before, is desperate to find Del because she owes him money, pulling Bryn into the orbit of his schemes.

On the hunt for Del, Bryn and Josh follow an ever-elusive trail to Colorado, and at the annual Mountain Games competition in Vail, they finally confront the truth. For Bryn, all roads lead to the river, and on vicious Colorado whitewater, she is forced to muster every ounce of courage and strength she has to piece her family back together again.
