Sometimes the perfect person is just waiting out there for you and you just have to know them when you see them.

That would be easy for Clay if Lilly would just admit that she feels the same. But no, she’s got to be stubborn about it. Just another thing for Clay to love about her.

Lilly, on the other hand, refuses to give into her feelings. Her feelings got her into trouble almost 14 years ago and she will not allow them to ruin her life again. It doesn’t matter matter how hot that man is – or how he makes her feel!

Clay’s first girlfriend left him a single father while still in his teems. But he toughed it out and made a life for each of them. He even managed to marry a woman who seemed to have it all. But until he saw Lilly carrying in the horse feed he didn’t know what love was.

My Thoughts

This is the first Robin Carr book I’ve read (the others have been novellas). And while I can’t say that I loved it – it was a really good book. Like so many series that span many books, this book kept up with some of the characters from the other books and featured the town in many ways. At times it was really great but, because I’d not read any of the others, usually it was just confusing. It wasn’t until the end that I really started to get everyone and their places and names together.

I did enjoy Clay and Lilly’s story. I loved the history and the memories that were pulled in and I loved that they each handled their tumultuous teenage mistakes with grace and maturity. I liked that the author allows the read to feel what it was like to be the character even for a few minutes.

I’ll absolutely read other Virgin River books -especially since I’ve already bought 1-4 – but I wouldn’t buy any based on this one… Sorry.

  1. I LOVE this series! I haven't read this one yet but I have read the first 4 books and really liked them.

  2. I'[m reading moonlight road right now and enjoying it much better. I'm not sure what my deal was with that book – it just didn't hold me.

  3. Great honest take 🙂 Thanks!

    I love the list at the bottom too!

  4. I overdosed on this series last year. Couldn't get enough of it! This however was not one of my favourites and I am not really sure why.
