Back cover blurb:
“Wanted: Midwife/nurse practitioner in Virgin River, population six hundred. Make a difference against the backdrop of towering California redwoods and crystal-clear rivers. Rent-free cabin included.”When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees this ad she quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to reenergize the nursing career she loves. But her high hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving: the cabin is a dump, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. Realizing she’s made a huge mistake, Mel decides to leave town the following morning.But a tiny baby, abandoned on a front porch, changes her plans…and a former marine cements them into place.Melinda Monroe may have come to Virgin River looking for escape, but instead she finds her home.

My review:

LOVED Jack – he is now my latest fictional boyfriend – and, in fact, all of the characters in this lovely little town. Possibly the best bit: when Mel and her sister are talking about Jack and they muse about the size of a man’s shoe being related to his *ahem* … and Mel says Jack must wear size 23 *giggle and swoon*

The story is funny, sexy and sweet, and definitely realistic. Rick’s “first time” had a huge ring of truth to it, and I was so glad Jack had another relationship, even after Mel came on the scene, and that he wasn’t just a cliched lonely guy pining away for his one true love like so many other romantic heroes.

I will definitely be reading the rest of the series to find out about all the other inhabitants.

My rating: 4.5/5
