This 10th novel in Robyn Carr’s New York Times best-selling series features scruffy-looking ex-Navy gynecologist Aiden Riordan and prickly lawyer Erin Foley. While each just wants to get away from it all for the summer, a bear scare, a bizarre concussion, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity thrust them together and kindle an unlikely romance. Then Aiden’s scheming ex-wife shows up.

“This book is an utter delight.” (Romantic Times)
Robyn Carr's Stories and Therese Plummer's narration go together like peas and carrotts.
This story is about another Reardon Brother and his coming to Virgin River and how he finds love. Of course everyone who comes to Virgin River finds love, but as usual it's not an easy path to Happily Ever After. I love the way the drama hits you and suspense goes throughout the story. Then another gotcha moment. Never dull and I always can't wait to get back to listening to Therese Plummer. She is excellent with all the male, female, older and younger voices. Onto the next one in this series. Five Stars!!
These stories sometimes are entertaining, but get a bit on my nerves with everyone being so perfect. Even the messed up people are perfect. I think of it as a dream story describing "this is the way people should live in a perfect world". OK once it while, but a bit sappy if you are cynical like me.
Somehow I missed the fact that this was part of a series, no less #10 of 17. Regardless, I was able to manage the story, even though having the history would have made it more rich.
In fact, now that I know there is a history, it makes sense for my "complaints" about the book. The story of Aiden and Erin was very well done and captivating. Each of their characters are high-acheiving but with faults and cracks. They round each other out very nicely.
But I did not understand why the secondary details were so strong: one couple debating about whether or not to have a third child (via surrogate no less), the romance of a developmentally disabled young man, and ultimately the complicated delivery of a breech baby. Now knowing these secondary characters were all central characters in previous installments, I get it. Doesn't make me like it anymore, but I get it.
This is a good book for summer reading or when you just need a simpler reminder of life with humor and connections.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
I've enjoyed every book so far. My only complaint is the long pauses in every book.
Anyway love the Erin and adian story these books must be read in order for you to appreciate them. Lawyer and doctor needing a break meet,fall in love go thru some x wife drama that is taken care of excellently I loved it.
The humor and unpredictable twists throughout the story.
I like the characters and the humor and the bond between the characters
at first I did not like her voice but I got used to it and it was a good performance.
Yes, the way the story ended with recognition of love and everything that had gone haywire in the story all straightened out.
I thought it was hilarious the way Aiden and Erin first met. The manner in which their relationship developed was also tinged with humor and very cute. The bear scene was totally hysterical! There was quite a bit of dialog and explanations about special needs adults, surrogate parenting and life post hysterectomy. Also, there was some suspense included in this story as well as a touching story featuring a possible romance for Art. Mel had another personal crisis filled with a degree of selfishness that made me want to kick her behind all the way up the hill. It was cool to see the Riordans close together and interacting with one another. Overall, I enjoyed this one quite a bit more than I did the previous books.
This is probbaly my 6th Robyn Carr book and really enjoy the characters. This one especially because I could now put together how the characters got together.
To all the Robyn carr books as the stories are "good for the soul"
As well as the others
The birth of Vanessa's baby
Cannot wait to get into my next Robyn Carr book!!
Believer in what you can't see
The story of how Erin and Aiden get together.
Erin was my favorite because when she finds out all about Aiden she stands up for him even with his wacko ex.
At the very beginning when Aiden scares Erin and a pot drops on her head. He brings her to the hospital but doesn't tell her he is a doctor. But he does go to her house and puts the plants in the ground and waters for her. Very sweet.
Looks can be deceiving
As always the narrator.. as in all of the books in this series she does a wonderful job.
The others in this series..
The first time Aiden and Erin were intamate...sweet and funny.
yes it was so good, I might have missed something
Aiden and his lawyer girlfriend. I am a romantic and his ability to make love to her in a considerate and caring way. WOW too bad the real man is not like that.,
I laughed, chuckled and was moved.
I loved this book. I was not sure, when it first started out with a lot of characters, That was a little difficult to keep straight, however, by the time I was into the book, I got everyone firgured out. I thought this book was great and glad I hung on as long as I did.Teresa Plummer was great. Enjoyed listening to her.
