News travels fast in Virgin River, and soon the whole town is taking sides. Rebuilding their trust could take a small miracle - and the kind of love that can move mountains.« less
Another very sweet story from Robyn Carr. The description is rather misleading, though. The residents of Virgin River do not take sides in any way.
The story line is entirely believable and even though Sean and Franci view past events differently, you can definitely see why both did what they did to get them to where they are now. Sean's awakening regarding his responsibilities and how he got where he is is entirely believable and very moving.
The other thing I liked about this book is something I like in all Robyn Carr's Virgin River books. That is the sub-plots about the residents of Virgin River. If there were a town like Virgin River, I would move there in a hot minute.
Another winner for Carr. I'm anxiously awaiting my copy of Moonlight Road (Aiden's story).
I loved this next book in the Virgin River series. I am especially glad this one kept us up more on what is going on with all the other characters we have come to love in this series. Thank you Robynn Carr for the escape I can make to Virgin River,especially at the end of a long hard work day.I hope the series continue for a long time.
I had a harder time with this one since I haven't read all the other in the series that came before this book. I have only read a few so Pastor Noah and Ellie's storyline seemed out of place to me. I am going to assume their story was in another book and this was a continuation.
I did enjoy the book though. I love how Carr's characters were so well-rounded. They had good and bad traits, nobody was perfect.
For example, the plotline for Sean and Franci wasn't a new one. Sean and Franci broke up four years later ago. When they accidentially met up Sean discovered he had a daughter. What made this so unique was that everything Sean and Franci did was justified and I understood how it came about. Their reactions were realistic and not overly melodramatic.
I also loved the side stories of Sean and Franci's mothers and what life / love would be like for older couples. It was nice to read about all the other residents of Virgin River.
I agree with the review that the backcover was very misleading. No one in the town took sides at all. Don't know who wrote the backcover but they didn't read the book before writing it.
It was a decent read although not my favortie. My only recommendation is that you read the other books in the series first. Don't start with this one if you have never read Carr before.

I am enjoying the Virgin River series in general. It is fun to get to know the characters and Angel's Peak was definitely good. I am home recovering from surgery and have read books 3 - 11 (others read already) and have a hard time putting them down. I have most of the rest and plan to keep reading.
Book 10 in Robyn Carr's Virgin River series, Angel's Peak continues the saga. The series is one of my favorites, and every book in the series introduces the reader to compelling storylines, characters you'd love to meet, and intriguing writing. Carr is one of those authors whose books I read the day they are released.
You should read the series in order, however. Virgin River is on Netfix currently, but be aware that even though several of the characters are the same as the books, the plot lines are different. The books are much better.
Angel's Peak centers on Franci Duncan and Sean Riordan, a couple torn apart four years earlier, with a bitter break-up, and now given a second chance. But obstacles and secrets abound. No spoilers here....read and enjoy! 5 stars for all books in the VR series.
