The tightly knit community of Virgin River has been a safe haven for more than a few lost souls over the years—and there’s always room for one more...
A decorated U.S. Marine reservist, LAPD officer Mike Valenzuela was badly wounded in the line of duty, but has found hope and healing in Virgin River. When he agrees to become the town’s first cop, he does so knowing it’s time he settled down. Twice divorced and the lover of too many women, he secretly longs for the kind of commitment and happiness his marine buddies have found—a woman who can tie up his heart forever. He finds that woman in Brie Sheridan, a Sacramento prosecutor who understands his drive to protect and serve. Virgin River becomes a safe haven for Brie after nearly losing her life at the hands of a crazed criminal. Though tough and courageous, she’s got some fears she can’t escape—but now she has someone who will shower her just what it means to trust again.
Mike will do anything to help Brie free herself from painful memories. Passionate, strong and gentle, he vows to give back to her what she’s so selflessly given him—her heart, and with it, a new beginning. - via GoodReads
I continued reading the Virgin River series with Whispering Rock by Robyn Carr. I’ve really been enjoying my read through of this series! Small town contemporary romances just do something for me.
I’m not going to lie though, Whispering Rock was a hard book to get through. Brie is a rape survivor. Mike is a gang violence survivor. There is a lot that both characters are working through. It was hard but worth it to watch them work together to overcome the things done to them.
Virgin River hasn’t changed except that more and more people are discovering small town living for themselves. It was nice spending time with couples from the previous novels. I can tell that as I work my way through the rest of the series it will be nice to catch up with the storylines of couples we’ve come to know and love!
Whispering Rock was packed with quite a few things happening in and around the small town. While there was a lot going on I didn’t feel like it took away from the romance. I very much look forward to the next book in the series!
