Some people have too much stuff and are obsessed with labels. Melinda a midwife and former ER nurse was like that but didn't recognize it. Living in California with her doctor husband-life took an abrupt turn when he was killed. After grieving she was unable to function without fear. Needing a fresh start she accepts a position in Virgin River, an idyllic rural location. I wasn't prepared to like this book - but as Mel worked her way through a rough start - always preparing to return to city life and spas and shopping and hairdressers something happened. She found peace, friends and an ex marine who cared for her. Mel still grieved and struggled with a LOT of emotions as she discovered the country isn't always calm. She began to love again as she accepted she belonged in Virgin River and didn't need designer labels. There was some flaws in the story like new friends she met and watched soaps with who were not mentioned at all toward the end of the book, and story lines referred to- possibly in upcoming books. But it was a relaxing read and Jack the bar owner and military man was an honorable, sexy, alpha male who never wanted to be tied down was the best thing about this book.
