*Starred Review* Shelter Mountain continues the story introduced in the author's [Virgin River], and introduces Paige, who, after fleeing her battering husband, arrives at Jack's bar in the midst of a downpour with her three-year-old son, Christopher. Preacher, big and scary looking, shows his tender and nurturing side as he and others protect Paige from her drug-crazed husband. Once again, Carr's fully dimensional characters carry the tale. Her heroes are strong, kind, and smart, and the heroines are determined, capable, and intelligent. Happily, Whispering Rock, the third in Carr's wonderful series, will be out in June.

Top Customer Reviews
The characters definitely made this novel for me. Carr creates a wonderfully realistic cast that I don’t think I’ll ever forget. Seeing Preacher come to life in so many different ways was fantastic. His heart is as big as he is and I couldn’t help but fall in love with him. Countered with Paige’s vulnerability and newfound strength this was a real couple that was easy to connect with. Surrounded by the rest of the strong, approachable individuals who live in and around Virgin River, Carr has a winning cast that truly does her story justice.
Once again Carr has taken me to Virgin River, and created a seamless novel that I can’t stop thinking about. I’ll definitely be reading it time and time again.
The reason I gave his book 4 stars and the reason I said it "mostly" kept me captivated is because at one point the story veered off to focus on other characters. Not just for a few pages either; An entire chunk of the book isn't even about the main characters anymore. If the writer is going to write so much about the secondary characters, she should have just given them their own book. (These secondary characters, Mel & Jack, were the focus of the previous book. Evidently they need a sequel for their story.) The whole reason I was into this book in the first place was because of Preacher and Paige. It was annoying to have their story put on pause to read about other characters I wasn't focused on. This made the book much longer than it needed to be.
I recommend this book, but it comes with a warning.
