Virgin River series

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 N ...

Redwood Bend

I’ve loved Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series since Jack pulled into town and set up his bar and wooed midwife Mel in book one, aptly titled Virgin River. Carr’s love for the redwood country shines through even to the latest 13th book in the series. Widow Katie Malone and her five-year-old tw ...

Wild Man Creek

I enjoy the Virgin River books by Robyn Carr. As with any book in a series, some work better for me than others. Wild Man Creek was a definite winner for me. Jillian Matlock has worked in the business world since her graduation from college. Now as Vice President of Corporate Communication, hard ...

I’m not an active reader of Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series, but I've generally enjoyed them whenever I picked one up. The latest installment won’t disappoint her fans. Clay Tahoma is a skilled horse trainer and farrier, and a Navajo. He’s gifted with an ability to connect wit ...

Paradise Valley

This second generation of Virgin River is really a hit or miss. Unlike the triple threat that started the series, the connection isn’t hitting home with the last three. 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 good ...

Second Chance Pass

It is not without great regret that I give Second Chance Pass an average grade. I, too, was one of the legions who discovered Robyn Carr with her phenomenal Virgin River series. I enjoyed the first four books immensely and looked forward to the next installment. Yet, I was never hooked in and even f ...

A Virgin River Christmas

About a year ago, I fell in love with Robyn Carr’s Virgin River trilogy. She continues here with a short-ish, Christmas-set story that is a lovely addition to the series. The life of Marcie Sullivan’s Marine husband was saved in Iraq by his best friend and commander, Ian Buchanan. Unfortunate ...

Whispering Rock

It seems to me that romance readers are always worrying over the “forced seduction” book. Is it coming back? Is it really about rape? Can violent, abusive men be heroes? I loved Whispering Rock because it made those stories look shallow. Here all of the pain and suffering that someone experience ...

Shelter Mountain

My husband posed a hypothetical to me not too long ago: If there was a book I wanted - really, really wanted, but the only way I could get it was to drive to a town 300 miles away, what would I do? My response: “Road Trip!” This conversation, singled out from the many we have had regarding my ad ...
