Back cover blurb:
For the second time in a year a woman arrives in the small town of Virgin River trying to escape the past.John “Preacher” Middleton is about to close the bar when a young woman and her three-year-old son come in out of a wet October night. A marine who has seen his share of pain, Preacher knows a crisis when he sees one—the woman is covered in bruises. He wants to protect them, and he wants to punish whoever did this to her, but he knows immediately that this inclination to protect is something much more. Paige Lassiter has stirred up emotions in this gentle giant of a man—emotions that he has never allowed himself to feel.

But when Paige’s ex-husband turns up in Virgin River, Preacher knows his own future hangs in the balance. And if there’s one thing in the marines’ motto of Semper Fidelis—always faithful—has taught him, it’s that some things are worth fighting for.

My review:

Maybe I shouldn’t have listened to this straight after listening to the first book in the series, because I think I’m suffering from Virgin River diabetes. Too much sugar, too many gentle ex-Marines, and definitely too many pregnancies! There’s a formula here which could be played out in half the time. The book itself was okay – albeit very similar to the first one – and I liked Preacher a lot, even if he was far too tentative with Paige and started every sentence with her name. I suspect I just need a break from these characters now.

My rating: 3.5/5
