Summarizing this story's plot simply isn't possible. New characters are introduced, familiar ones revisited, and the whole makes for an intensely satisfying read. By turns humorous and gut-wrenchingly emotional, it won't soon be forgotten.

Marine Corporal Rick Sudder has been through a lot in his young life -- the death of his parents, the loss of a child and leaving his girlfriend Liz and everyone else behind when he's deployed to Iraq. Now Rick's been severely wounded, and he refuses to
let anyone help -- especially Liz. Rick wants her to move on and find someone else, since he thinks he no longer has anything to offer. But convincing Liz is going to take work. (MIRA, Apr., 416 pp., $6.99)

Paradise Valley

Submitted by Robin in PA on January 16, 2011 - 8:19pm.

After his leg was blown off in Iraq, Corporal Rick Sudder returns to Virgin River a broken man. Even though his friends rally around him, Rick's depression is getting the best of him. He breaks up with his long-time girlfriend, Liz, and won't even let Jack close to him. Meanwhile, Dr. Cameron Michaels is still trying to get close to Abby. And Dan Brady (aka: Shady Brady) has returned to Virgin River looking for a place to start over.

I love these books because they have such a soap opera feel to them with all of the continuing stories. I knew Liz & Rick's story would be interesting, but I especially enjoyed Cam & Abby. Also loved learning more about Dan. My rating: 5 Stars.
