I would give it 10 stars if I could! The best one yet in the "Virgin River" series. That little "Wide Iwish Rose" stole my heart! Just when I think the characters and stories can't get any better, another comes along and replaces the last favorite. Enchanting, amazing, humbling, loving, caring, etc. etc. Lessons can be learned in each read. Is it March yet?? I'll be rereading "Angel's Peak" again soon - very soon.

The series is going downhill fast. The characters are unlikeable (especially that dreadfully behaved little girl) and have nothing to do with Virgin River and all the original residents.

This one was really boring. I was disappointed.

I didn't dislike this book, but I can't rate it as highly as the others. I loved Sean in Luke and Shelby's book. What a stinker he was ... in an adorable, diabolical way. And his love interest is extremely likable.

But nothing really happens. It all just kind of lays there. One of the things I like about this series is how real it feels. But, maybe this one is too real. Too close to the mundane.

And when things did happen, like with Maureen and George, it felt forced. Like Carr needed a second r

Rating: 4.5 / 5

I really enjoyed this book a lot. It's always so nice to read another Virgin River book and get back to favorite characters and places.

Series Note:
This book could possibly be read as a standalone, but there's a lot of character connections that might have you wanting to read other books. Plus this is a great series and I highly recommend reading it in order.

(July) 3.5* In my world, there are only a few excuses for a Mom not to tell her Baby Daddy she is pregnant: 1) he is a pedophile; 2) he is Jeffrey Dahmer (or any other type of abusive/violent psychopath); 3) he is an uber-rich cold hearted certified crazy who will take you to court to get full custody and never let you see the baby just to make you miserable; 4) baby is a product of a one night stand where you didn’t exchange names and you have absolutely no way to find the dad or 5) you live in ...more

On the morning after their wedding, Ellie and Noah are overwhelmed to find many Virgin River residents working on the renovation of the house they just purchased. Ellie turns to Noah and says, "They're so wonderful. How can they be this wonderful?" To which Noah replies, "I think they practice."

Oh, wait! This was supposed to be the story of Sean and Franci, but that one didn't take long to tell and wasn't enough to hold my attention: Sean and Franci were a hot young couple, Franci wanted marriag

Reviewed for THC Reviews
A large part of the plot of Angel's Peak centers around the secret baby theme, which is not a favorite of mine. I have a hard time accepting the idea of a woman running away to have a baby and never telling the father, because it seems so unfair to the guy. Unless the man is a tyrant or otherwise a danger to the woman and her child, I usually don't feel like she has a good reason to do this, so this is a romance theme I typically avoid. However, with this being a Virgin R

Fabulous book that rang my bells and whistles. Angel's Peak is set primarily in Eureka, California, but there are short events in Virgin River throughout the story. Previous characters have quick mentions--here and there--but most have no dialogue. Jack, Preacher, the General, Muriel, Dan Brady and a few others have short dialogues; while Noah and Ellie (earlier book) finalize "things," a new relationship develops between two consenting seniors, two new characters and their interracial romance i ...more

Blurb from back cover: "Four years ago, air force sweethearts Franci Duncan and Sean Riordan reached an impasse. She wanted marriage and a family. He didn't. But a chance meeting proves that the bitter breakup hasn't cooled their sizzling chemistry."

And sizzling it is! Definitely rings the bell on the "phew, is it hot in here or is it me" meter. When I finished Forbidden Falls, it was almost with sadness. I wanted it to go on and on. Well, now with the release of Angel's Peak Robyn Carr gives us

Angel’s Peak is the 9th book in the Virgin River series. Sean Riordan, brother to Luke Riordan, both of whom we were introduced to in the 6th novel Temptation Ridge, is on leave from his naval job flying U-2 spy planes. A career navy man, Sean is on the way to General – after his leave he will be reassigned and chances are once he completes that next mission successfully, he will be in line for promotion. He plans to retire with 3 or so stars down the track.

Sigh, the more I read this series the less excited I get. Don't get me wrong I loved Sean and Robyn Carr sure knows how to write an ADORABLE child but I just felt like I was passing the time reading this book. I like to get swept up and excited and way too involved for my own good, and this book didn't provide that.

It started to set the scene for Aiden Riordan ... but as excited as I am to hear Aiden's story, the book does come out around the same time as Delicious by Shayla Black and I can har

5 stars – Contemporary Romance

I'm behind on writing reviews, so I'll just keep it brief and say that this is another wonderful addition to Carr's magical Virgin River contemporary romance series. I was a little concerned in the beginning because Sean's cocky attitude annoyed me, but of course, it didn't take long before he completely won me over. The men of Virgin River are all deliciously sexy, swoon-worthy, and totally to die for heroes! This series is like my favorite coffee...essential and I

Always enjoy this series, not a bad book in the bunch so far. Sean was a great charater, so was Franci. I look forward to getting to know them even more as the series progresses. This one was a little different for me, had a great story line going with all my favorite characters of the series so far. Would like to spend some time getting to know all the Roirdans boys myself.

I really wanted to like this book as I liked the set up but I found myself disliking the H/h very early on and was unable to finish the book.

Virgin River, by book 10, is a familiar place and home to dozens of warm characters. It's a great place to visit every once in a while.

I have a hard time when the main characters hook up without ending the prior relationship they are in. No cheating for my hero/heroine!

Angel’s Peak, another in Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series is proof that the books keep getting better and better. This is the story of hotshot U-2 pilot Sean Riordan and Franci Duncan. Together as a couple for two years, Franci wanted marriage and children; Sean felt they were committed, but he didn’t want the ring or the rug rats. The romance ended badly with things said that finished the relationship. What wasn’t said, on Franci’s part, is that she was pregnant. Feeling Sean wasn’t committed, ...more

2.5 stars

Unfortunately, I didn’t like the main characters in this book, and I hated the premise, so this one was never going to get a high rating from me. Then, to have Sean end up blaming himself for the unforgivable thing that Franci did was the final insult. Lucky for me, I still enjoyed Carr’s writing and visiting with old friends from previous books in the series.

In fact, there were parts of this one that I really quite enjoyed – seeing Noah and Ellie’s relationship and circumstances progr

Virgin River is like a big warm hug....Angel's Peak is the story of Riordan brother, Sean described as one of the playboy's of the Western World and his former girlfriend, Francine Duncan. Always regarding her "as the one that got away" when a chance meeting occurs nearly four years later Sean is determined to re-connect despite the different opinions on marriage and family that originally broke them up. Imagine Sean's surprise when he finds out that he is the father of an adorable three and hal ...more

Robyn Carr is in my top 5 romance writers these days. She writes characters that have such deep humanity but are still flawed humans. Sean Riordan loved Franci but when she put down an ultimatum, he wasn't interested. He didn't know she was pregnant. He never stopped loving her once he realized what a jerk he had been. Fast forward 3.5 years and he runs into her. Now she has some decisions to make. She doesn't know how he will react to the discovery that he's a father. Sean is more than up to th ...more

Enjoyable as expected. But this book did what a couple of the earlier books did - it got about 3/4 of the way through it and then the couple in the story were mostly forgotten. Rather frustrating! I like that this series doesn't forget about the characters we have come to know in the past or continues to find new people for us to meet, but when the hero and heroine are ignored it bothers me. I haven't noticed it as much in the most recent books, but I did in this one.

That said, I really liked wa

This was the 10th book in the Virgin River series. Of course Robyn does not disappoint in this book either. I had many emotions with this book which makes it even better. I was a little surprised by some things that happened but won't spoil the story for you. It was nice to learn more about Luke's family as this story's main focus was on Luke's brother Sean. We also learned a little more about his mother. Throw in a few of the newest members of Virgin River and you don't want to put the book dow ...more

I normally love this series, but I found the relationship in this novel to be so disturbing, that I'm surprised the editor didn't object. I'm sorry...when you haven't seen a guy for 4 years....then he decides he's going to track you down because he has to have you back in his life....and when he runs into you in the grocery store, he grabs you not just once, but multiple times to keep you from walking away from him when you've said you don't want to talk to him....that's not romantic or sexy...t ...more

These books are like sitting by a fire drinking a warm cup of coffee surrounded by all the people you love. Sean and Franci are adorable and their daughter Rose is a warm breath of fresh air. Each book deals with a main love story but always goes back to the other people living in Virgin River to catch up. I also enjoyed that this book focused on 2 empty nest grandmothers who found love after their husband had died. Refreshing, light, fun and just hot. These books just keep getting better and be ...more

Let me just start by saying I do love Robyn Carr and the Virgin River series and this book is well written. I read it because it was part of the series. I went in not liking the blurb but I was absolutely taken aback by the fact that everyone sided with Francie in her decision to withhold the fact that Sean had a daughter. He stumbles on her accidentally and having realized he made a mistake years before he wants her back. This forces her to tell him they have a child. At first he is angry and t ...more
