Virgin River Series by Robyn Carr (books 8-18)

So I’ve been neglectful of this site for the last week or so for a couple of reasons. First, I got a new job and I’ve been acclimating and learning a lot. But also because I’ve been reading this series. On Christmas Eve day, I started reading Virgin River and I got so caught up in it I haven’t read anything else. So 18 books later, I’m done. Well, there are a couple of novellas that I had to order through interlibrary loan from my library and then I’ll really be finished. Here is the series in order:

1. Virgin River
2. Shelter Mountain
3. Whispering Rock
4. A Virgin River Christmas
5. Second chance pass
6. Temptation ridge
7. Paradise valley
8. Forbidden Falls
9. Angel’s Peak
10. Moonlight road
11. Promise canyon
12. Wild man creek
13. Harvest moon
14. Bring me home for Christmas
15. Hidden summit
16. Redwood Bend
17. Sunrise Point
18. My kind of Christmas

Virgin River is the name of a small town set in the mountains of northern California (I think?) Somewhere in California, it’s a fictitious town and I’m geographically challenged in reality, never mind in fiction. Most of the men are retired military and big, strapping extraordinarily good looking men, and most of the women are strong, independent and drop dead gorgeous. These are romances,  people, and this goes with the territory. The characters overlap somewhat but the first book, Virgin River, starts with Jack & Mel Sheridan getting together and they are in all of the books thereafter.

Needless to say, I loved this series. The books are fast reading and the characters are really brought to life. Everyone has baggage, and most have to overcome difficulties, some more serious than others, but all got me emotionally invested.

There is a bit of explicit sex in every book, usually just a couple of scenes, all of which, I’m sorry to say, are very similar. Let’s just say you can tell the same author wrote all these sex scenes. The men are all determined to take care of their women’s pleasure first, a good attribute and one I recommend all men take to heart. But it is the emotional connections that really resonate.

I do recommend reading the books in order although once you get past the first two or three, it isn’t as important.

Here is a link to the series on Amazon; if you are going to buy any of these books, please do so through this link so I  can make a few cents!
