Another excellent book in the Virgin River series! I love how these books continue on with each person's story, their lives running together just like small town life. This is a fantastic series, a fantastic book, and I'd recommend it to anyone!

This book was so emotional. How do you come to terms with getting a second chance at a girl that you always regretted not approaching, when the only reason you get your second chance is because your best friend died while at war? This book sucks you in and you ride the roller coaster with Paul and Vanessa through Matts death, the birth of their child with Paul by her side and then the realization of their love.

I love this series. Each book has new main characters but I really love to see the continuation of stories from previous books. I can't get enough of Jack and Mel who ancor the town and the books, not to mention the cameos from the Grace Valley crew. I love how each of her books have the main romance but she gives lots of supporting characters and relationships significant time. It's like watching a movie with multiple stories going on. I hope she never stops writing the virgin river books!

once again Robyn Carr out did herself. I read the book in one night. I love how she brings in new characters but keeps the old story lines going. I can not wait for the next two books in the series

I really wanted to love this book. Does that say it all? The two "main" characters of Vanni and Paul did nothing for me. I was much more interested in the back stories and of course Mel and Jack. Looking forward to the next in the series, but this one stank.

This fourth book in the Virgin River series follows the same formulaic pattern as the previous books -- strong, silent, macho men with hearts of gold fall in love with luscious, emotionally-bruised women willing ultimately to love again. Having said that, it is still highly readable romantic escapist fiction and if this is your genre, you will enjoy this book as much as the previous books in the series.

Another great installment in the Virgin River Series - can't wait to read the next one - if you like the Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove series - give this one a try!

This book covered a lot of ground. Although a big part of the book was about Paul and Vanessa, we also introduced Muriel / General and Joe / Nikki. Add in some forest fire, births, and touching base with all the other residents and you have "Second Chance Pass."

Paul and Vanessa actually got on my nerves in the beginning. Paul took forever to talk and Vanessa was forever interrupting. It drove me crazy. But after Paul "manned up" it was much better.

Overall a pretty good book. Quick easy read. Definitely read some of the other books first so you won't get lost about who is who.

A very enjoyable escape. Nothing heart-stopping to keep one reading into the night, but a nice way to spend a lazy afternoon.

This installment seemed a little more disjointed than the previous ones. While all carry multiple story lines, "Second Chance Pass" incorporated so many that none were allowed to be the focus. Vanni and Paul's story was wonderful but consisted of only a third of the book. Maybe there just wasn't more to say about them but they were such loved characters that it seemed a slight to forget them so soon into the book for other events. Because those events dwelt on other loved characters in whom the reader is also invested,however, the disappointment wasn't enough to round the star count down.

This book is good in a lot of ways. This is partly Vanni & Paul's story. Vanni kind of aggravated me in the beginning because she jumped to several conclusions about Paul without listening to what he was trying to tell her.

But this story also includes Preacher & Paige, Mike & Brie, Jack & Mae, Walt & a new connection, Joe, Shelby (Walt's niece), Rick, Tom & Brenda so you get an update on the previous characters in this series and I loved that.
