Harvest Moon (Virgin River #15)
Puttering in Jill's garden and cooking with her heirloom vegetables is wonderful, but Virgin River is a far cry from San Francisco. Kelly's starting to feel a little too unmotivated…un...more
This is the story of Lief Holbrook, famous screenwriter and Kelly Matlock, an accomplished & talented chef. Both have come to VR to escape the big city for different reasons; one making a permanent move, the other only temporary, and each finding themselves drawn to the other. Both have issues and complications in their lives and are drawn to the small mountain town of Virgin River.
Smart, totally sexy Lief f ...more
Not my favorite in the series. It seems the author forgot she was writing a romance and instead wrote a coming of age story about a teenage girl's struggle with the death of her mother. It was well done but not what I enjoy reading.
These books are the perfect "getting into the holiday spirit" type of read. They have a quaint, almost Hallmark-movie type feel to them that leaves me feeling uplifted. That said, I don't think I'd have the patience to read them, as they're not as couple cente ...more
Part of Carr's "Virgin River" series (13 full books, plus several novellas). I would say you may be able to get by just reading this one, but there's a lot of history worth knowing. So if you have the time and the desire, I'd suggest start ...more
My one big question is how does a town with only 600 people have so many gorgeous men?
The more I read of Harvest Moon, the more I thought I'd finally found another Robyn Carr keeper. It admittedly wasn't perfect for me. There were a few parts that were slow and a few minor annoyances, but overall, I was enjoying it. I liked the characters and the situations were believable. There were a couple of romantic scenes that I felt were on par with some of the author's earlier books in the series, and which convinced me that Leif and Kelly were truly falling for o ...more
Lief and Kelly were well developed characters. They both moved to Vi...more
The chemistry between these two came alive on the pages. Lief and Kelly were always enjoying each other’s company with laughter and love. But for a time there, it looked like that might not have been enough when Lief’s stepdaughter Courtney didn’t want her around.
Courtney was ...more
Your latest Virgin River trilogy is some of your best work to date. Please continue this trend.
What's this you say? A VR novel devoid of any secondary plots? How can this be? No Jack and Mel? No catastrophes, secret love children, or troubled pregnancies? Surely you jest!
Nope, I'm totally serious! This book is focused on one couple and their romance for the entirety, and it was so lovely. It had small cameos by recent couples and I enjoyed seeing them all without having ...more
Leif was just an adorable piece of man, and obviously I wish I was Kelly! Those two were just explosive in this book and were often having quickie sex. Which was a li ...more
When you write 19 (as per April 2012) book in a long series there is bound to be a few that just miss the boat. Harvest Moon is that book for me. I loved Lief. I loved Kelly. I just felt that there was not a driving attraction between the two of them. I did not feel the 'steam'. Harvest Moon was almost too perfect. I found the idea that Kelly could make a good living selling her canned chutney very unbelievable. Yeah, i'm jaded. I live in N. California and I know how much food and gas ...more
This story is about Kelly Matlock, sister of Jillian, from the previous book, Wild Man Creek. She's a wonderful sous chef trying to make a name for herself when she ends up in the ER due to stre ...more
The plot, for me, was so-so, but the story turned out better than I anticipated. Lief had problems with Courtney. She was very rude to Kelly. I got frustrated at Kelly's character and felt she could have done MORE to extend an olive branch to the rebelliou ...more
In Harvest Moon sous-chef Kelly Matlock suffers from a personal disappointment and a medical crisis. She realizes that cannot continue working in the high stress atmosphere of the restaurant where she is employed so she leaves her life behind to move to Virgin River. She stays with her ...more
Harvest Moon was a pleasant surprise as a read. It started out with Jennifer running away on her eighteenth birthday to escape an untenable situation with a ruthless powerful and influential stepfather. It picks up with her living a new life as Dawn Garrett in Goosemont, a backwoods community that suddenly has some type of serial killer stalking beautiful young women, and during the earl ...more
Von der Autorin hatte ich bislang zwar schon durch andere Bloggerinnen und Blogger etwas gehört, selbst aber noch nichts von ihr gelesen und bin daher völlig unverfänglich und ohne jegliche Erwartungen an das Buch herangegangen.
Kelly ist Souchefin in einem angesehenen Restaurant. Für ihr Privatleben bleibt in diesem Fünf - Ster ...more

Vor kurzem durften wie schon Jill kennen lernen und in diesem Zuge auch ihre Schwester Kelley, welche diesmal im Mittelpunkt steht.
Die Geschichte von Jills Schwester ist mit viel Herz und Gefühl geschrieben. Es ist nicht die beste der Geschichten, welche ich bisher aus der Feder von Robyn Carr gelesen hatte, aber trotzdem noch lesenswert.
Bisher habe ich alle Bücher von Virgin River nur versc ...more
I am sick as a dog at the moment, and this book was exactly what I needed. Combine that with doctor's orders to spend as much time lying on the couch as possible, and I was as happy as it's possible to be while being otherwise utterly miserable. The Virgin River series is better than chicken soup.
