nice little series on small town doctor..quick read..I found I quickly developed a sense of living there myself! Made me want to move away from the big city! Enjoy.
1st in Grace Valley trilogy. I enjoyed this book and compare it to the Mitford series by Jan Karon only with more drama going on. There's a secret romance that spans all 3 books before concluding. I compare it to the Mitford books in that there's a community and a LOT of characters are introduced -sometimes it's hard to keep them straight! But the problems are really big sometimes and deal with abuse, death, secrets. The main character is a female doctor who has returned to the small town in the valley, amongst drug growers, to help her father as the town's/community's only doctor. She meets an undercover DEA agent and pursues a secret romance. This book was fairly light on the romance thought possibly a tad descriptive for those who pretty much stick with christian romance/Debbie Macomber type reads. I'm used to more graphic (though I do read Macomber!)so I felt it was a tad light on the romance and seemed to be more along the lines of women's fiction. Also the romance does not conclude so if you really care about that aspect you'll probably want to continue the trilogy, which luckily you can now do since they were reprinted(I had to hit ebay and just about every used site for the 3rd when I was reading these a year or so ago!) A nice trilogy and this and the last were probably my favorites of the 3.
Excellent book in a series. Good storyline, interesting characters. This is one of those "re-read" books for the future. The Grace Valley series is every bit as interesting as the Virgin River series. Get both series because you will want to delve into the next book as soon as you finish the one you are on.
I love this author. I read the Virgin River series and had to read the prequel series. This is the 1st of the Doc Hudson trilogy. Great story. Great character development.
Deep in the Valley is the first book in the Grace Valley Trilogy. Carr does a great job developing the characters and pulling the reader in to their stories. After reading the Grace Valley Trilogy, follow up with the Virgin River series.
