Welcome back to VIRGIN RIVER with the books that started it all…
Sometimes love takes root in unexpected places—if you'll only let it grow
Colin Riordan came to Virgin River to recuperate from a horrific helicopter crash, the scars of which he bears inside and out. His family is wonderfully supportive, but it's his art that truly soothes his troubled soul.
Stung personally and professionally by an ill-advised affair, PR guru Jillian Matlock has rented an old Victorian with a promising garden in Virgin River. She's looking forward to cultivating something other than a corporate brand.
Both are looking to simplify, not complicate, their lives, but when Jillian finds Colin at his easel in her yard, there's an instant connection. And in Virgin River, sometimes love is the simplest choice of all…

This is one of my favorite authors and I am not sure that I have ever read a bad book by this author. I actually listened to this book and I was not sure I was going to like that as I have read all the others and loved picturing the characters. The narrator grew on me and I ended up enjoying listening to this book just as much as I would have reading it. I loved getting to take a visit back to Virgin River as it has been awhile since I have read one of the books. I remember Colin from a previous book but do not remember Jillian. I liked getting to know her and know I could be friends with her. She is doing almost the same thing with veggies that my husband is starting so that part really hit home. It was fun listening to her and Colin get to know each other. I felt bad for Denny and all he went through and hope he finds true happiness in the future. I am going to be starting the next book in the series soon. Loved this book.
