Jonetta (Ejaygirl) One series that is my go-to for feel good experiences is Virgin River by Robyn Carr. The first book in the series is also called Virgin River Virgin River (Virgin River, #1) by Robyn Carr. There's not a lot of action but the heart of the stories is the community of the town. It's where most of us would consider the ideal town to live in. And, the romances range from sweet to steamy/turbulent. Love this series, which has 20 books in it to date, including the novellas.

A fabulous series!!! I love that characters are present in future books so we get to see what happens after "happily ever after".

Jonetta (Ejaygirl) Ooh! That's right! The character continuation is one of the best aspects of the series. They aren't just mentioned, recurring characters have meaty roles in future stories.

Kris - My Novelesque Life (Kris1980) Another series I like is Susan Wiggs's Lakeshore Chronicles. It centers around the Bellamy family and their family business of owning a Camp on the lake in a small town. I would recommend reading them in order as there may be spoilers in some of the books about past novels.

The first book is Summer At Willow Lake (Lakeshore Chronicles, #1) by Susan Wiggs

Jonetta (Ejaygirl) I'm so glad to see you tout this series. I have the books but haven't read them yet.

For those of you interested in Robyn Carr's new series called Thunder Point, the first book, The Wanderer, is now on Goodreads if you want to add it to your shelf.
