Nine months ago her beloved husband Mark Monroe was murdered during a convenience store robbery. The physician¿s widow Melinda, a nurse and midwife needs to escape Los Angeles which over night went from her home to a place of trauma for her. She accepts a job as a doctor¿s assistant in the small isolated Redwoods town of Virgin River. --- However, nothing is quite what was advertised as her cottage is a filthy dilapidated cabin and the crusty elderly Doc Mullins does not want her. Though restaurant owner Jack Sheridan is welcoming, she plans to leave and to stay with her sister in Colorado. Her plans change when she finds the newborn left on Doc¿s doorsteps. As one day leads to another and new patients arrive, Melinda has found a new home though she is unaware that Jack loves her but is patient as he knows her heart belongs to someone else. --- VIRGIN RIVER is a delightfully amusing small town character study that enables the audience to see deep into the souls of several key players but especially Melinda, Doc, and Jack. The support cast augments the solid story line whether they are the baby, the ¿realtor¿, the cook or patients. Fans of character driven poignant contemporary tales will want to drive the winding mountain road to VIRGIN RIVER. --- Harriet Klausner

Oh My

This was my first experience with this author. I was hoping for romance like Nicholas Sparks, not sex bordering on porn! I read about halfway through the book and then got rid of it. I really enjoyed the characters and storyline but I just felt so uncomfortable reading ...
This was my first experience with this author. I was hoping for romance like Nicholas Sparks, not sex bordering on porn! I read about halfway through the book and then got rid of it. I really enjoyed the characters and storyline but I just felt so uncomfortable reading this type of skanky material. What bothered me the most was the graphic description of the teenage sex between a 14 year old girl and a 16 year old boy. WRONG!!!

    It All Depends...

    The story is wonderful. HOWEVER the details, in vivid descrption, of each and every sexual encounter are totally uncalled for. If you can't find enough to fill the pages of a good book, without all the smut, then you should give up writing. Too bad, as the stories would otherwise be very interesting. I don't plan to read anymore or Robyn Carr books. It is disappointing, as it would have been nice to follw more about some of the characters.

    I had read Shelter Mountain first, mistakenly, which was not quite a bad.

    Graphic Sex

    I'm really not interested in reading a book that is full of graphic sex. And when they started describing sex between a 16 yr old boy and a 14 yr old girl, I thought they had just gone too far. I guess I like to use my own imagination. This was a good book with a good story line and could have been a top seller without all the details being told over and over.
