I have really enjoyed all the Virgin River novels and this book was almost like a reunion with all the previous characters stopping by for a visit. Hopefully the rest of the Riordan brothers will want to find their true loves in this wonderful town. Great story, great read....truly enjoyable.
This the last book in the Virgin River series so far. It is another gripping view into the lives of the people of Virgin River, CA. Hopefully Robyn Carr will continue to add tothe series because after 10 books you feel like these people are friends and you want to know what happens in the years to come.
I loved this book. It catches us up on so many of the lives of characters we have come to love in Virgin River. And,how could you not love Aidens and Erins story!! Please tell me this is not the end of this series?!
Suffering from empty nest syndrome after her siblings have moved out, Erin Foley takes time off work and moves to her brother-in-law's cabin for a long overdue vacation. Erin is startled when a man with a bushy beard and a long knife walks out of the woods. Aiden Riordan is a doctor, taking a break from work after leaving the Navy. After a rough first meeting, Aiden finds Erin intriguing and wants to get to know her better. But when Aiden's ex-wife steps back into the picture, his relationship with Erin may be in jeopardy.
Aiden is probably my favorite hero in the Virgin River. Of course, he has lots of competition in this series. I thought Erin and Aiden were perfect for each other. And, Aiden's ex-wife made the story even more interesting. I would give this book 5 stars, but I didn't care for the story about Mel wanting to have another baby through a surrogate or adoption. I didn't like the way she treated her husband and didn't listen to anything he had to say. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
Amazingly enough I didn't like the main female characters in this book but I still liked the book. That certainly speaks for Carr's talent.
Things I didn't care for were Erin and Mel.
I know Carr kept saying Erin wasn't shallow but she was. Her comments against Aidan were all about money and status. She was also so judgemental that I thought she didn't deserve Aidan. At the same time the only reason I thought Aidan would be interested in Erin was because she was pretty and she was the complete opposite of his psycho ex. It made it hard to care about their relationship up until psycho ex showed up. Only then did I really started cheering for them.
I had a hard time with Mel because she was such an insensitive midwife. Right after losing a child for the fifth time a woman probably doesn't want to have her midwife hint that her unsturdy uterus was at fault and she just need to find a surrogate with a tried and reliable uterus. Way to go to make a woman feel less than. Of course Mel was also dealing with her own issues of loss and womanhood. She was so mean to Jack that it was painful to read at times.
It was great to revisit some of the old characters though. Even though I haven't read all the books before this one I didn't feel lost at all. I loved how Carr's characters keep moving forward and that they don't stop at just getting married or having a happily ever after.
Again, it was a nice read even though I had a hard time wtih the main characters. Definitely worth it if you are into the series.
Excellent! I was excited during Temptation Ridge to hear that there would be more of Aiden coming up; and I was not disappointed. He *may* be my favorite Virgin River guy....but there is tough competition of course!
As far as I can recall, this is one of the hottest books in Carr's series. Another area in which Aiden doesn't disappoint!
I was a little perplexed with Mel's obsession with surrogacy or adoption, but never having gone through a hysterectomy, I don't have much to go on.
The saga of Virgin River continues, this time with Aiden Riordan a doctor who has left the Navy and is hiding out in Virgin River getting some much needed R&R. That is until he finds Erin taking a sabatical from the ratrace of life herself. Another great Robyn Carr book. Strong willed women and Hunky men all whose lives are interwoven in a close knit community called Virgin River. I love this book, can't wait to read the rest of these gret books.
Robyn Carr just gets better and Virgin River expands to add another romance. Erin and Aiden have a rough first meeting but it just gets better after that. Both of them have 'baggage' but together they can work things out. The characters from earlier books are a part of the story and the connectivity is tremendous. I think that all the books are great alone but as a continuing series, they are out of this world. Lighthearted but with a message and an invitation to come into Virgin River and visit a bit. A winner!
Aiden Riorden is a doctor, Luke's brother. Luke newly married to Shelby and expecting his first child has asked Aiden to stay close to be a support to Shelby while she goes through her pregnancy. Aiden is newly out of the Navy and enjoying his "vacation" while he decides what he wants to do with the rest of his life. Can love sneak up on him like it did with Luke and Sean? This is another treat by Robyn Carr, it continues the Virgin River series and as usual it is a great read.
