The Wanderer

Is predictability the kiss of death for a novel? Is knowing what is going to happen comforting and familiar or fatally formulaic? With romance novels this can be an especially hard question to answer because we know what is going to happen at the end. For many of us the HEA defines the genre and it ...

Sunrise Point

We all have our comfort reads, books and authors that we can count on for escape from our day-to-day worries. Carr is one of mine and Sunrise Point, the latest of the Virgin River series, is the kind of calming, soothing love story that is like a sigh and a nod between old friends. Unwed mother Nor ...

I have passed many an hour with her over the years and been delighted to watch the success she has achieved with her Virgin Rive ...

Paradise Valley is merely nice with a dash of disappointment. No one had to hold me down to finish - in fact I was gunning throug ...

Temptation Ridge

Temptation Ridge is the sixth book of Carr’s Virgin River series. Though I’ve been wanting to try this series for a while, this is the first one I’ve read. However, I’ve read reviews and discussions, so I wasn’t lost when I encountered continuing storylines. Sadly, after hearing such goo ...
