# 8 in the Virgin River Series
I love, love, love this series of books (must read them in order). They are romances, and each book focuses on a new couple. In Forbidden Falls, Noah comes to Virgin River after buying the old church. He hires a young woman Ellie, to be his assistant and to help him get the church clean and functional again.
The thing i like most about this series is that as each book focuses on a new romance there is also significant time spent continuing the stories of the other residents of Virgin River. This includes POV changes, time spent looking through their eyes. That being said, Forbidden falls has less of these POV changes and sidestories than I have come to expect from Royn Carr. I feel like something was missing. I still very much loved reading about Noah and Ellie but I often wondered as I was reading about what Jack, Mel, Mike, Rick or Shelby were doing? I hope the next book brings more of this back to the series.

I love the Virgin River series. But,"Forbidden Falls " fell a little short for me. I liked Noah and Ellies story well enough. But,in all the other books in this series,you were still kept abreast about what was going on in the lives of all the original characters. This is what I loved a lot about this series. Just not enough depth to this one. Sort of rushed through,is the way I felt at the end.

I do agree with some of the review about this book when it comes to some of repetition but still would give it about 4.5 stars. Robyn Carr really gets you to feel everything about each of the characters. It still has some of the updates with the original casts and gives you more stories about more than the main characters, like Shelby and Luke's wedding and more about inside story of Vanni and Paul without losing the base story. Can't say enough about this author. The town of Virgin Rivers is just getting better and better.
