Back Cover Blurb:

The community of Virgin River saw Vanessa Rutledge through her darkest days — now she's looking to a bright future.

In the space of a few months Vanessa buried her husband, Matt, and gave birth to their son — breaking her heart while filling it with a whole new kind of love. But the one man she longs to share this love with now acts as if she doesn't exist.

Paul Haggerty lives by the marine motto: Semper Fi. Ever faithful to his best friend, he's done right by Matt's widow as best he can...considering he's been secretly in love with her for years. Now, just as he's about to make his move, another woman has staked her claim on him — a claim that will be tough to escape.

With courage, humility and not a little meddling from the good folks of Virgin River, Vanni and Paul might just get a second chance to have the love they both desire and deserve.

My Review:

I love the natural way all aspects of family and marriage come to life in Virgin River. Carr brings the beauty of birth to life just as vividly as she does the sting of betrayal and the beauty of the area.

Carr has created quite the cast of characters for this novel. The conniving, backstabbing nature of some is tempered by the utter loyalty in others. At the same time, everyone seemed so real. Carr never goes off the deep end with extreme characters, they’re all so real. The entire community comes to life as Carr delves into the lives of so many individuals. I thoroughly enjoy how the main characters stand out, yet how everyone’s story is told. The intertwining storylines made the tale even more intriguing for me.

This is one of those rare novels that will stand the test of time. Carr brings life and love to the forefront in such a manner that you cannot ignore it, but one that’s also completely natural.
