Please note that I gave this book 2.5 stars and rounded it up to 3 stars on Goodreads.

You can’t see my face, but my face is just still right now. This was the next to the last book in the Virgin River series and it was such a letdown. I think that having it be about a character we heard about here and there from the previous books was the main issue. I had no interest in Nora from the previous books and I was wondering why she kept popping up. Also Nora being 23 and like I think 5 feet with two kids and her being attracted to Tom didn’t work. Probably because based on what I read, Tom had to be at least in his late 30s or early 40s. There is no real tension in this book either, it’s just reading about two people kind of doing their own thing but slowly becoming attracted to each other. When we do get a love scene I maybe sort of yawned my way through it. We once again get an epilogue in this book that I was surprised to see. It didn’t really work for me, but oh well.

Nora is a single mother with two little kids doing her best to keep her head afloat. She goes looking for work at Tom’s family’s apple orchard. He initially turns her away thinking she is too young and small to be able to do much good, but his grandmother makes him hire her. Nora starts to think of Tom romantically, but tries not to when he starts dating another woman.

Tom. Eh. He is a former Marine (mostly all of the men in Virgin River are former Marines. Thinks about it, yes I think they are) who is determined to meet and marry a “classy woman”. He decides that type of woman he is looking for is a widow of a friend of his that died in Afghanistan. At least Tom realizes this woman is completely selfish and she and he would not make a good match, but I did get a kick out of his grandmother ready and waiting to throw this woman out of their shared home.

We have references to previous characters per usual. But there is not really a B plot in this book at all. The majority of the book is dealing with Nora and Tom and Nora has a whole host of things going on.

I think the romance was lacking as I already said because I didn’t really get a sense while reading that these two were hot and bothered for each other. Nora was mostly like a little sister to Tom through the whole book so maybe that is why I found it jarring. ( )

This book was another great Virgin River book. In each of these books, there are issues as well as the romance. In this one, the main character, Nora, has had a hard life. One of her problems is the way she was raised, by a borderline mother. The memories from her childhood were exceedingly hard for me to read, since my mother was a borderline. It was amazing to see it incorporated into a mainstream romance novel.

As with many other Virgin River books, this book is about people who want to get married and have children, and the introduction of children into someone's life causes them to like children. This is the part that I find unrealistic about the VR series, and if you find such things offensive, you won't want to read most of what Robyn Carr has written. It's interesting to me, however, that in many other ways I find the characters more real than in the standard romance. Also note: these books have some graphic sexual scenes.

I really have enjoyed the books, and I do recommend the series, and this book in particular, if you don't mind the above warnings. I recommend reading them in order. This one is the most recent one.

Tom Cavanaugh returns to the family apple orchard after a stint in the Marines. Strangely, the previous girlfriend, Brenda from previous books is just dropped by the author. But she introduces Nora, a single Mom trying to keep her family afloat. She gets a job picking apples, backbreaking labor, after walking 3 miles each way in all kinds of weather. But although she's nothing like what Tom envisions in a wife, Nora captures his attention. And his grandmother, Maxie, and the rest of the town is determined to get Nora and her family back on their feet. ( )

Because you like Romance, you may like Robyn Carr. This is a sweet love story about finding happiness and love and healing and new beginnings.

Another good book in the Virgin River community. I thought both the main characters were really nice especially after some hard struggles. The action moved right along and I found the side situation with Jack rather interesting. Desperate for income, single mother Nora gets a job at ex-marine Tom's apple orchard. ( )
