Katie Malone and her twin boys’ trip along the beautiful mountain roads to Virgin River is stopped short by a tire as flat as her failed romance. To make matters worse, the rain has set in, the boys are hungry and Katie is having trouble putting on a spare. As she stands at the side of the road pondering her next move, she hears a distinct rumble. The sight of the sexy, leather-clad bikers who pull up beside her puts her imagination into overdrive.
Dylan Childress and his buddies are on the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. But the sight of a woman in distress stops them in their tracks. And while the guys are checking out her car, she and Dylan are checking out
one another.In one brief moment, the world tilts on its axis and any previous plans Katie and Dylan might have had for their futures are left at the side of the road.
As you can tell by clicking on Robyn Carr's name below the post, I've read and enjoyed all of the Virgin River books published so far, and Redwood Bend is no exception. Katie is trying to get her life together after being forced to spend a year away from family due to her brother being a witness to a murder. She's visiting Virgin River, and while she'd like to stay near her brother who now lives there, she doesn't plan to stay in Virgin River. While there, she meets Dylan, a man just passing through, a man with a past. In some ways it is love at first sight; in others it is a re-kindling of old love (on her side, not his). Both of them are afraid of getting hurt. She wants to make sure her kids don't get hurt. It's a Virgin River book so we know it has a happy ending--and a couple of steamy pre-marital scenes.
I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley. I was not obligated to write a positive review. Grade: B.
