Product Description

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In Virgin River, Melinda needs a change after violence in Los Angeles took her beloved husband from her; but when she accepts a job as nurse practitioner and midwife in Virgin River in rural California, she gets something very different than she bargained for. The rent-free house, for instance, is unlivable and critter-infested. But she likes the restaurant and bar run by Jack Sheridan, and she feels needed. Life is precarious in this tiny community in Northern California's Humboldt County, with marijuana growers lurking in the backwoods. Carr's leisurely paced, low-key story charms by virtue of its characters, from curmudgeonly Doc to brawny Preacher, who cooks at Jack's, to teenaged Rick, and Jack's former marine buddies, who are only a phone call away.

I just stumbled across Robyn Carr because of a Christmas novel I picked up in December that was part of the Virgin River series - instantly hooked.
I ordered this book so I could start at the very beginning of the series and am I ever glad I did. This book is probably one of the top ten I've ready in the romance genre. Carr's ability to describe scenery and characters without going over the top is remarkable. Her characters are well carved out and developed and you truly feel as though you know (and like!) the heroine in the story.
Her scenes that depict the grief felt by the heroine is raw. You experience the spectrum of emotions right along with the heroine feels as she slowly starts to settle in Virgin River.
The secondary stories and supporting characters within this story just enrich the novel without overwhelming the reader with unnecessary detail or character confusion - you know who is who and what is what. I wasn't left feeling as though the introduction of new characters was a cheap bridge to the next novel - it didn't feel like a "sequel set up" by any means. It just left me interested and hungry to read the second book in this series.

Carr develops this novel with a flair for scenery. Virgin River comes to life in a big way. I thoroughly enjoyed how Carr allowed me to picture each and every aspect of the area and its people. Carr presents a well-rounded introduction to Virgin River as a whole. At the same time, she creates an emotionally fulfilling, wildly exciting novel that brings all the aspects of life forward. The story was full of plot twists that kept me from guessing what would happen next. There were definitely a few ‘Holy Cow! I didn’t see that coming’ moments that had me exclaiming out loud.

I loved this 1st look at Jack. He’s so much fun to get to know. The mix of strong warrior with caring gentleman was fantastic. I appreciate the gradual nature of Mel’s acceptance of Virgin River and of her growing relationship with Jack. I loved Mrs. McCrea. Her busibodyness and hopes for Virgin River’s future were fantastic.

Carr has penned the perfect start to her Virgin River series with this novel. I loved every aspect of it, from the heartbreaking loss to the budding romance, beautiful scenery to frightening suspense. I will definitely be continuing this series and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the novel to others.
