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 finds ...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
My one big question is how does a town with only 600 people have so many gorgeous men?
Exceptional as always!
I liked that this addition to the series focused much more on the couple rather than so many other characters from the town. I love the other characters, but sometimes it’s like reading two books in one. This story didn’t feel that way.
There was a bit of other man drama that annoyed me but it was easier to deal with than other woman drama. I liked the hero and heroine as well as the hero’s daughter who was not very likable. There is a ...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
Overall, I liked what was there about the romance between Kelly and Lief but Courtney’s story overtook the book. Her character development was incredible but there was too much of her instead of the supposedly main characters.
Nice epilogue and fantastic narration.
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

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

With the assistance of Lief Holbrook, a single dad with a bratty daughter, and the professional style kitchen Jill has Kelly will slowly start finding herself again. Though Courtney, Leif's daughter is a supe ...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
