APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Dive into the acclaimed Virgin River series (now an original TV hit) with Robyn Carr’s heartwarming first instalment. Widowed Melinda Monroe spots an ad in search of a midwife in the remote Virgin River (population: 600). Is she in search of refuge? An escape? Or perhaps simply a new career? Either way, Melinda makes the jump and embarks on her fresh start, only to have her hopes dashed in record time. But just as she opts to leave, an abandoned new-born baby changes her plans. Local barman and former marine Jack Sheridan comes to her assistance but Mel must face up to her past to find a future in the rural Californian town. Carr crafts brilliantly likeable and courageous characters that have quite rightly opened a portal to a worldwide romcom phenomenon.
