Second Chance Pass by Robyn Carr

It was nice to finally get to read about Vanessa and Paul. The beginnings of their story is told in Whispering Rock and you automatically start hoping that they will end up together… I really wasn’t expecting so many different highs and lows throughout this story though. And I kind of loved it. It was brilliant and made the whole story impossible to put down.

A Virgin River Christmas by Robyn Carr

Marcie is my favourite, craziest, stubborn woman. She is so fiercely independent and tough, but in this great, feminine way. I also laughed again and again throughout this novel – mostly in the unwise, random instances where she finds herself in pain. Her total acceptance of Ian’s unique ways and gumption in finding him are something seriously to be admired. Something that had me flicking through the pages of this novel super fast.

Whispering Rock by Robyn Carr

It took me a little longer than usual to get into this novel. After all, it does start with rape. And I tend to read the Virgin River series and Contemporary romances for a relaxing happy time. Which made me feel a little less hooked in. But, after I got through those first three horrific chapters, I really sunk into this.

Down by the River by Robyn Carr

I loved this conclusion to the Grace Valley Trilogy. Everything has come full circle and June gets her happily ever after. It was a great way to spend the day… reading this while I had a serious migraine and really couldn’t stomach the idea of moving. There is just something inherently sweet and cute about Carr’s writing and, with this trilogy focusing on just the one woman and the town that she loves… that feeling of sweetness just increased.

Just Over the Mountain by Robyn Carr

High school sweethearts are always an interesting topic. An interesting thought process – the entire centre of the whole “what if” thought. So a novel in which June has finally found a guy, but then her big “what if” returns home? It was always going to be one that drew me in… especially when there is this sense of unanswered questions and serious history rife throughout the story. And anger, because where would a history and intensity be without a sense of anger and outrage?

Deep in the Valley by Robyn Carr

I read this after reading the first two Virgin River books (Virgin River and Shelter Mountain) and I kind of wish I had have known about the Grace Valley Trilogy first. After all, it talks about characters that you come to love in Virgin River, so you kind of know what June has in store for her future. Which made it a little less exciting. But only the teensiest, tiniest bit.

Shelter Mountain by Robyn Carr

I started reading this book practically as soon as it landed on my doorstep. After all, I absolutely devoured Virgin River, so I couldn’t wait to find out about Paige and Preacher. Especially since they do feature in the Netflix show. Which I’m kind of obsessed with. Plus, the idea of a storyline dealing with an abused woman isn’t one that I’ve often had the chance to read. I like the fact that so far in this series, the people have some pretty serious damage in their pasts…

Virgin River by Robyn Carr

I’ve been obsessing over the idea of buying this book since I binge watched the Netflix show in just over 24 hours. I’ve since watched it twice more… so obviously I was incredibly keen to receive the book. And then I spent the next day in bed, refusing to get up just so I could fully enjoy immersing myself in the joys of Virgin River. There is just something so wonderful about this story that far outstripped the expectations that the Netflix show prompted.
