Publisher's Summary

Fan-adored author Robyn Carr presents the story of a woman who "needs a change [and] gets something very different than she bargained for" (Booklist). Recently widowed, grieving Los Angeles midwife/nurse Melinda Monroe answers a small upstate town's ad for help. Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

Great author if you like Nora Roberts!

I've been looking for another author who can write an interesting story, develop his/her characters and give me a smile on a regular basis without dragging me through some long drawn out mistaken perception and hurt feelings. I think I've found her in Robyn Carr. She has all the qualities I love about Nora Roberts' stories, without the graphic descriptions of the violence that so often seems to anchor a romance story. This story is about a young woman whose husband is tragically murdered causing her to leave LA for a more peaceful place. From the start, you know that Virgin River isn't exactly peaceful, but is full of "characters" in the true sense of the word. Hope, Doc and Preacher are wonderful foils for the main characters Mel and Jack. Sure the romance develops a bit rapidly, but it's a romance novel after all. The love scenes are tasteful while steamy and the relationships delightful. I'm already in to the third book of the series and they just seem to get better. I'm so glad there's more!
