A new found love that comes when least expected!

Forgotten Trails is the fifth (and last) book in the sweet contemporary western romance, Paradise Valley series. A unique and captivating story with romance and a happy-ending that we all have come to expect. Like all of Vivi Holt series, this is another story that I had a hard time putting down. It is such a passionate, unique and captivating story. Angela is a scared pregnant girl that doesn’t remember who she is or where she came from. When Hank

When Angela arrives in town, pregnant and no recollection of who she is, Ost takes her in and has that feeling that she is the one. But with her past unknown, and a possible husband coming to find her, things move slow. The question is, why can't she remember? Vivi Holt once again has woven a beautiful story to get lost in as the 5th and final book of the Paradise Valley. Ost is a wonderful character. He is loving, attentive and protective. Angela is vulnerable and brave. They have a great chemi ...more

I am so sad this is the last of the Paradise Valley series. I have enjoyed each one tremendously and so wish I could visit!( yes I know it is fictional but what a great place and people! Then can run over to Cutter's Creek!) Vivi Holt has brought this place alive with her insightful descriptions and dialogue, it has felt like a real place.
This is Hank, or Oster, as he is called a lot and Angela's story. Hank is now a deputy sheriff in Bozeman and after a vicious gang of cattle rustlers. When he

I purchased a copy of Paradise Valley Series book 5:Forgotten Trails by ViVi Holt and this review was given freely.
This is a bittersweet romance, with a touch of political concerns of the time, and although there is a sinister undertone,this novel has less graphic violence then the others in the series. Life moves on with in Paradise Valley with families growing and moving away. Hank Oster leaves the ranch to become a deputy and marries a pregnant Angela who has amnesia, Bill and Sarah d

This series was excellent, following one story after another. It just kept building on the stories like layers on an onion, getting better and better. My favorite book of the 5 in this series was Lost in Laredo.,Book 3. There wasn't much more that could have happened than what Vivi Holt brought into these stories. They were very fast paced and book 3 I found I could not put down. I read until 2 am.

This book is about a young woman who lost her memory and the man who found her. There are some twists and turns in this book that enhance the story. Enjoy the story I did, Now to read the first four books!!!!!!!

Another great read by Vivi Holt. This is the story of Angela and Ost. Their life together doesn't start out like a traditional romance, but love has a way of working things out. The only sad part about reading this book is that it is the last book of the Paradise Valley series.

The end of Paradise Ranch, I think. So sorry Sarah and Bill left. Would like to know how Angela and Hank make it. The series is worth your read.
