Returning to Virgin River is always a pleasure -- and this book is an utter delight. Aiden and Erin's romance, from their laugh-out-loud funny first meeting to happily ever after, is note perfect, and Carr juggles a number of intriguing and touching subplots with seeming ease.

Attorney Erin Foley is taking time off from her busy career to spend the summer in Virgin River, hoping to learn to be alone. The siblings she raised have found love and are living their own lives -- something Erin hasn't ever had the luxury of doing. Enter Dr. Aiden Riordan, who's just been discharged after 14 years in the Navy. Aiden's got family in town, and is planning to stick around a while, at least until the birth of his brother's child. A disastrous first marriage has left Aiden cautious in the extreme regarding romance, but there's something about prickly Erin that wakes up his libido -- and his emotions. Unfortunately, it's just in time for his ex-wife, Annalee, to reappear and start making his life a misery again. (MIRA, Mar., 416 pp., $7.99)

Submitted by Robin in PA on February 3, 2012 - 8:56pm.

Suffering from empty nest syndrome after her siblings have moved out, Erin Foley takes time off work and moves to her brother-in-law's cabin for a long overdue vacation. Erin is startled when a man with a bushy beard and a long knife walks out of the woods. Aiden Riordan is a doctor, taking a break from work after leaving the Navy. After a rough first meeting, Aiden finds Erin intriguing and wants to get to know her better. But when Aiden's ex-wife steps back into the picture, his relationship with Erin may be in jeopardy.

Aiden is probably my favorite hero in the Virgin River. Of course, he has lots of competition in this series. I thought Erin and Aiden were perfect for each other. And, Aiden's ex-wife made the story even more interesting. I would give this book 5 stars, but I didn't care for the story about Mel wanting to have another baby through a surrogate or adoption. I didn't like the way she treated her husband and didn't listen to anything he had to say. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
