RT Rating

Strong conflict, humor and well-written characters are Carr's calling cards, and they're all present here. Sean is to die for, and he's well matched by strong-willed Franci. You won't want to put this one down.

Four years ago, Air Force pilot Sean Riordan and flight nurse Franci Duncan broke up when she wanted to get married and settle down and he didn't. Now, a chance meeting brings Sean back into Franci's life, stirring up old emotions -- and forcing her to tell him why she disappeared after they split. Sean's amazed to learn he's a father, but he decides instantly that he wants to do right by their daughter, Rosie. Franci isn't sure she trusts Sean enough to let him into their lives, but Sean's determined. To top it off, he not only wants to be a father to Rosie, he wants Franci back ... but she's moved on with her life. Or has she? (MIRA, Feb., 384 pp., $7.99)

Angel's Peak

Submitted by Robin in PA on October 8, 2011 - 11:42pm.

Sean Riordan is in Virgin River visiting his brother, Luke, and burning up excess leave.  One night he visits a bar and runs into his former girlfriend.  Four years ago, Franci Duncan and Sean had been Air Force Sweethearts until she said she wanted marriage and family.  Sean wasn't ready for commitment or children, so she ended their relationship.  Sean never got over Franci and wants to try again.  Franci tries to avoid him.  She doesn't know how inform him he has a 3 year old daughter named Rosie.

I really liked this story.  I could understand why Franci walked away from Sean, knowing he would insist they get married when he found out she was pregnant. She wanted to be loved for herself, not as an obligation.  Sean is stunned to find out he has a daughter.  We see his acceptance of Rosie and the growth of their relationship.  We also get to see him win back Franci. 

As usual we see other subplots in this series.  Sean's mother, Maureen Riordan, starts a relationship with George Davenport, a friend of Noah.  We also see Dan Brady and Cheryl Creighton who I think are an interesting couple.  I can't wait to read Aidan's story.  I like his humor and think he may end up being my favorite Riordan brother.  My rating:  4.5 Stars.
