It's the women. For some reason, in Second Chance Pass, they're all crazy, or bitchy or stupid or a combination of all three. It's very annoying. I've liked the female leads in all the books up until this one. Most of the women, not just Vanni, were practically howl-at-the-moon nuts. And the men came off as more whipped than usual, which is far from my pref...more

First of all, I was disappointed in the main couple choice. Paul is a wimp/beta male and Vanni alter...more
Having read many reviews of Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series up to this book, I am aware that many readers have had problems with the prevalence of women’s health and pregnancy content throughout these books. Up until Second Change Pass, I did not count myself among their number.
With the central character of Mel being a nurse practitioner and midwife, I found it for the most part to be in keeping with her profession and if at times it could come across a little preachy, it never dimmed...more
There are so many other relationships in this book and I loved all of them. You see Vanni's best friend, Nikki, and Joe another Ex-Marine. There is Walt, Vanni's father, and h...more
Paul Haggerty has been in love with Vanni before his best friend, Matt fell in love with her. He has stayed in the background being loyal to Matt and would do anything for either of them...like be there for Vanni when she goes into labour and wants him to be his birth buddy. All the emotion made Paul run home to Grant's Pass where he sleeps with a woman he doesn't love. Vanni's mother-in-law takes it as her duty to set Vanni up with a cute single doctor, Cameron. Cameron could be the one...more

I refuse to spoil the book in this review, but I actually did the Scooby-Doo 'Huh' noise listening to the audiobook when I heard the scene with Jack taking care of business for Mel when the clock was ticking. I can't say more. But, it was...more
This book was a gift from an internet friend, and I didn't realize it is a romance novel 'til I was into it. Not finishing a book once begun just isn't in me, so I stuck it out.

“Paul! She’s gonna hang up on you! And then the next time you show your face, she’s going to put a bullet in your head. And Walt will help her line up her shot.”
