# 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.

I could not put this book down. It was my first by Robyn Carr and wish I wouldn't have started in the middle of the series. None the less. I love the characters and can't wait for the next one.

Usually with Carr you get to read about a new couple and you get to catch up with the lives of some past couples. Here you pretty much only have Noah / Ellie's story (her name changes throughout the book. I'm assuming it's typos) and Paul / Vanni's. You do get quick sentences about Luke, Liz, Rick, etc... but not as in depth as you ususally get. With that being said, I can see why some people who feel short-changed.

I loved Noah and Ellie's story though. It mirrors Paige / Preacher's story a little bit except Ellie is a bit assertive and proactive. Ellie is very funny and spirited. Noah is super sweet. I really liked that a big part of the story was how Ellie won the town, not only what was going on with the romance with Noah.

Paul / Vanni's story was a little different. Terri, Paul's fling from the past who tried to pass her baby Hannah off as Paul's child, suddenly dies and leaves Hannah to Paul. Now Paul and Vanni has to decide whether or not to put their lives on hold to take care of Hannah. Lots of adjustment issues and hurt feelings. Their story is very short but it was still interesting.

Pretty good read.

After buying a dilapidated church in Virgin River, Reverend Noah Kincaid puts an ad in the local paper to get some help. When he meets Ellie Baldwin, "Pastor's Assistant" is not what springs to mind. The former stripper is in desperate need of a respectable job so she can regain custody of her children, so Noah decides to give her a chance to prove herself.

This was another good book in the Virgin River series. I liked both Noah & Ellie and their story was interesting. The secondary story was about Paul being named guardian of his former girlfriend's baby. When Vanni finds out she is very upset. Vannie is not one of my favorite characters in this series, but I could see where she would not be happy about suddenly gaining custody of a baby. My rating: 4 Stars.
