About the Book:With her beloved younger siblings settled and happy, Erin Foley has empty nest syndrome. At age thirty-five.
So she's hitting the pause button on her life and holing up in a secluded (but totally upgraded—she's not into roughing it) cabin near Virgin River. Erin is planning on getting to know herself…not the shaggy-haired mountain man she meets.
In fact, beneath his faded fatigues and bushy beard, Aiden Riordan is a doctor, recharging for a summer after leaving the navy. He's intrigued by the pretty, slightly snooty refugee from the rat race—her meditating and journaling are definitely keeping him at arm's length. He'd love to get closer…if his scruffy exterior and crazy ex-wife don't hold him back.
But maybe it's something in the water—unlikely romances seem to take root in Virgin River…helped along by some well-intentioned meddling, of course.
This book is absolutely typical of this series--hunky ex-military guy and cute young (ok, she's not that young, but she is cute) thing. The series regulars are there along with the expected happy ending. Grade: B
I got this book from the library last summer and enjoyed it, though I didn't think it was worth writing about, as it was so typical of the series. I saw it on NetGalley and downloaded it since I had no record of reading it. While not obligated to review books I get from NetGalley, I like to say thanks to the publishers by writing about their books, if I like them.
