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

I loved this book. I thought the characters were very well developed and seemed very real to me. I found myself connected to them. I absolutely adore how the landscaping is described, it definitely gave a clear, beautiful picture! As for the comments about "graphic sex" or this being "smut" or any of the comments on the sex in this book, you all are really being childish. Sex is a very natural, very beautiful part of life. I thought it was well written into the story. Teenage sex is real wether or not you like it. In my opinion it was tastefully written. If you are that offended by sex between consenting adult lovers than you have to get out more, it wasnt that graphic. In all honesty I have enjoyed every word written and I cannot wait to read more of this series!! (GRAPHIC SEX AND ALL) ;)

I wasn't sure if I was going to even like this book. The only author I have really read is Nicholas Sparks. I figured since I was done reading most of his, I should probably find another author to get into. I picked the right one! This book was way better than I thought it would be. I couldn't put it down and when it was over, I found myself wanting more! I am excited to start the second book now.

I loved the story, the plot was good and the chatacters were well developed. The person who said it was bordering on porn must be very sheltered ot prudish because the sex in this book was very vanilla. As far as the 16yo with the 14yo, it was an essential part of the story and was well written....I mean no one wants their kids doing it but it IS a reality. I actually thought the, ove scenes could have used a little more steam but thats just me!

This book was so great. The descriptions of the town, the characters, how they are related, how they meet and the real life situations that bring them together are so touching. It makes you want to pack up and move there to such a beautiful place and meet those people who are so community and family oriented with good morals. This was just such a great book. I just finished Forbidden Falls and started Angel's peak. The entire series is so good so far and what I like the most as the characters go through real life challenges and situations that everyone does and just the loyalty of the townspeople etc. The author writes so beautifully, the new characters dont just come out of nowhere it is all a smooth transition related to characters and situations in the book. I highly recommend this series. These are not your typical romance books where there are a few characters and you know in the end the couple will hook up, this is about the growth of a new town, the lives of the people who there or come there in family or as needed in the town, romances that happen in the process of all of this and its very exciting.

Unfortunately, I didn't start with the first book, but after reading this one, I was able to fit all the pieces together. Very good introduction to the upcoming series.

This book is a cute book.But I like a little more action.Mel is delightful and real so is Jack and Doc. I just didnt like the going over and over things.It is very bland. but I did order number 2 in this series to see if it has a little more action.

I enjoyed the idea of the story and the small town atmosphere. I also liked the healing process that transpired and the importance of family and friends. I did not like the loose moral values that abound and the detail in which they are described.

This is the first book I've read by this author, and have just read the second in this series and started the third - back-to-back. The characters are very good and they are an easy read - but enough plot to hold your interest. Definitely read these in sequence.

Mel and Jack are so different but life brings them together. Big city girl and small town ex Marine help each other. Melanie has lost her husband to a shooting in LA. She is looking for a simpler place. Will this be the right move for her? Wonderful characters and lots of exciting adventures. I enjoyed the book. joy943

This was my first book by Robyn Carr and will be the only one I will read. T T Her writing style is too cold, just doesn't flow. There is too much violence and I agree with the other reviewer, the two teenagers and their story was too inappropriate. The main character, Melinda, did too many stupid things to be believed. If you like romance books, this writer is not for you.

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.
