Second Chance Pass by Robyn Carr

Summer Of Love


I was so excited to watch Season 3 of Virgin River and so…annoyed when it was over. I decided to remedy that by picking up the next book in the series: Second Chance Pass by Robyn Carr.

I really do enjoy reading these books. I like the idyllic place they are set and I enjoy the small town antics of Virgin River. I wish small towns were like this but having grown up in one, there is also a fair amount of drama and rumor mongering. BUT this is why we get to read fiction: we get to experience places that might not otherwise exist.

Usually a romance centers around a single couple. This one does but not entirely. Paul and Vanessa share probably 50% of their book with other couples and events taking place in Virgin River. This worked really well for me as I was happy to spend time with characters who’s happy endings we’ve got to see and the potential happy endings to come.

I was a little concerned when Paul and Vanessa’s storyline seemed to work out rather quickly. I honestly didn’t feel like it was rushed and it resolved nicely for me. I just couldn’t figure out what the rest of the story would be. There were a few things that developed and a threat to Virgin River. I’m even more intrigued about a man who appears to be shady. I’ve wondered all along if he wasn’t working undercover. I’m hoping I get an answer to that!

Not too long ago I had heard someone say that Carr spends a lot of time talking about and worshipping pregnancy, babies, bringing babies into the world. I had never really thought that or paid much attention to it. Unfortunately once it was pointed out I couldn’t “unsee” it. There did seem to be quite a lot of Miracle of Life talk with several different mothers or soon to be mothers. It didn’t detract from my enjoyment of Second Chance Pass but I definitely noticed it.

The only thing that kept this from being a 5 star read is that there was a lot going on!! I mean a lot going on. I’m hoping the next book slows things down a little bit. Overall the romance was resolved nicely for me and I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!
