Severely injured in a helicopter crash, Colin Riordan goes to Virgin River to recuperate. Painting pictures of wildlife while he heals, Colin sets up his easel in a field owned by Jillian Matlock, a woman who is getting over the loss of her career. There is an immediate connection between Colin and Jillian, neither of which are looking for a commitment. Soon they are embarking on a relationship they know will be ending in the near future.

I was looking forward to this book since the Riordan brothers are some of my favorite characters in the series. I liked Colin but I found Jillian to be too driven. She plants a garden in the backyard of her rented home. Soon she has planted several acres with exotic vegetables, set up a couple greenhouses and hired an assistant, sinking big bucks into the project in hopes of starting a business. I can't imagine anyone jumping into a business where they have no background. I was also a bit bored with all the gardening information. Maybe that is because I do not have a green thumb. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
