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 re-energize 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.
This was a wonderful book. It has been too long since I have read a small town contemporary romance, with no added killer or paranormal element. This book hit the spot. It had a very engaging storyline and a great cast of characters that sucked you in and made you care about them. Awesome book, I highly recommend it if you have not read it yet (thought i am probably the last person to read it). Labels: contemporary
