Sometimes all you need is a fresh start
When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees an advert for a midwife in the remote town of Virgin River, she decides this is the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to revitalise the nursing career she loves.
However, her hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving: the cabin is uninhabitable, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. But when a tiny baby is abandoned on a front porch, Mel must decide whether to stay and help or cut her losses and leave.
Helped by local barman, and former marine, Jack Sheridan Mel must face her past, and finds that there may be a future in Virgin River after all.
I loved this story, I actually watched the netflix series first before reading this book, and I didn’t realise how many books are in the Virgin River series. I have some serious catching up to do. I loved the plot line for this story, and the characters are really brought to life. They make you feel as though you are a part of the story, it almost feels familiar, I fell in love with the scenery and where it is set, you just don’t want to leave. The story centres around Mel after an awful time in her life, she decides to escape to Virgin River to become a midwife, little does she know how much she will fall for the place. Lots of things happen that put her on edge but with the friendly locals will she feel settled or will she up sticks and leave? I thoroughly enjoyed this book, there was lots more descriptions than in the netflix series but they are both good.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
