A wonderful addition to the Virgin River series, this story has everything: a courageous, outspoken heroine; a to-die-for hero; and a plot that will touch readers' hearts on several different levels. Truly excellent.

Relocating to Virgin River is Rev. Noah Kincaid's first step toward a life without his late wife. He plans to spend an unexpected inheritance refurbishing the town's derelict church, which he purchased on eBay. Noah's number one task: hiring an assistant.

Ellie Baldwin, a former exotic dancer -- is completely unsuitable for the job. But Noah hires Ellie, a young mother who's trying to regain custody of her children, and doesn't regret it. She's a hard worker and makes him laugh, which hasn't happened much since Noah's been widowed. Falling in love isn't on Noah's to-do list, and neither is getting involved in Ellie's problems with her ex, but somehow, it happens all the same -- and he doesn't regret that either. (MIRA, Jan., 384 pp., $7.99)

After buying a dilapidated church in Virgin River, Reverend Noah Kincaid puts an ad in the local paper to get some help.  When he meets Ellie Baldwin, "Pastor's Assistant" is not what springs to mind.  The former stripper is in desperate need of a respectable job so she can regain custody of her children, so Noah decides to give her a chance to prove herself.

This was another good book in the Virgin River series.  I liked both Noah & Ellie and their story was interesting.  The secondary story was about Paul being named guardian of his former girlfriend's baby.  When Vanni finds out she is very upset.  Vannie is not one of my favorite characters in this series, but I could see where she would not be happy about suddenly gaining custody of a baby.  My rating:  4 Stars.
