Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Robyn Carr is renowned for her Virgin River series. When Colin Riordan is caught in a devastating helicopter crash, Virgin River seems like the ideal place to recover - both physically and emotionally. But when PR guru Jillian Matlock, who rents a Victorian home down the street, finds Colin trespassing, an instant connection blossoms between them - which leads to more than either expects.

My new favorite book in the series!

What a wonderful story!! Jillian is forced out of her job (a very shocking situation) and she decides to go to Virgin River for a while to think about what she'll do next. Collin Riordan is healing from the injuries he suffered on a helicopter accident and rents a cabin in Virgin River.

The romance takes its time and its so well developed. This is definitely the best book in the Virgin River series. The secondary story about a young man named Denny that goes to VR looking for his birth father is really interesting too. Oh and the end of this story brought tears to my eyes. So good and so believeable!

Narration: it's Therese Plummer! She's simply the best narrator ever. Nobody adds emotions to a book like her. Different and perfect voices for male and females. She has kept the distinct voices of each character for all the fourteen books.Best. Narrator. Ever.

Um . . . Just Okay

This is the first Robyn Carr book for me. What drew me to it was the story line of the injured army pilot who comes to Virgin River to heal after his helicopter crash, and Jillian the young corporate executive who leaves that environment for some "time off" to think. I loved the way that Jillian found her roots and real satisfaction in gardening, and that the experiences that she shared with her grandmother as a young child served to comfort, heal and teach her so many years later. Colin's story of flying helicopters in the army and his shallow relationships prior to meeting Jillian were not surprising. I would have liked even more development of the relationship between Colin and Luke and the rest of the brothers, more about Colin's painting. What I found to be shallow and underdeveloped in this book, and I suspect in this series, is that the relationship between Jillian and Colin never really went beyond Robyn Carr's descriptions of their love making . . . which she repeatedly writes about. Younger women reading this series will surely have "stars in their eyes" and I just find it lacking in substance.
