what she finds herself doing after she realizes exactly the position she’s put herself in.
Kelly has been working toward the position of Chef de Jour at one of San Francisco’s finest restaurants and hated it. She hated the stress. She hated the mutiny. She hated the arrogance. She hated the berating. She loved the owner. The very married owner. Kelly needed to run before she hated herself.
Leif has decided to drop back and punt. His wife died two years ago leaving him with a very hurt teenage daughter, Courtney. A teenage daughter who has decided that acting out is her thing – along with the goth look. Sure, she could get away with that when they lived in L.A. but it stands out in Virgin River. Leif really doesn’t care how Courtney dresses though – all he wants is his daughter back.
Will Kelly be just what they need or will Courtney finish the destruction that caused Kelly to run?
This book was really good. I thoroughly enjoyed, as always, the single dad aspect but this one was better because who doesn’t love a man who steps up to love a daughter when her father decides he doesn’t? I also love books with chefs as main characters… of course, they do make me hungry though.
There were some aspects that were a bit to ‘pat’ for me. I didn’t like how the relationship between Kelly and her boss flowed. For some reason it was a bit too unrealistic for me. However, everyone else’s characters and emotions flowed as I expected.
The Virgin River Series is terrific- especially if you enjoy a relaxing traditional romance.
