Carr winds up her Virgin River trilogy with this powerful story, again tackling a very delicate issue and handling it with finesse and compassion. The characters are marvelous too; chalk up another memorable hero.

Injured in the line of duty, LAPD officer Mike Valenzuela is recuperating in Virgin River, spending time with his old Marine buddies and biding his time until he can go back to work. Then Jack Sheridan's sister, Brie, is brutally assaulted, and Mike's focus changes.

Mike has a soft spot for Brie, a smart prosecutor who's well aware of his reputation with the ladies. A friendship grows and deepens against all odds -- both have a messy marital
history. But Mike makes Brie feel safe, and she makes him feel -- period. It's a match made in heaven. (MIRA, Jun., 384 pp., $6.99)

Whispering Rock

Submitted by Robin in PA on May 23, 2010 - 7:18pm.

A year ago, LAPD Officer Mike Valenzuela moved to Virgin River to heal from his wounds and start his life over. Now his friend Brie Sheridan is in Virgin River, visiting her brother and recovering from a beating and rape. Mike will do anything to help Brie overcome her painful past.

I liked this book, but I wish move time could have been spent on Mike & Brie's relationship. There are lots of side stories going on. It felt like the main couple was short-changed. Still, a very good book overall and a nice addition to the Virgin River series. My rating: 4 Stars.
