 VIRGIN RIVER by Robyn Carr

Virgin River #1

Virgin River

“Wanted: Midwife/nurse practitioner in Virgin River,
population six hundred. Make a difference against the
backdrop of towering California redwoods and crystal-clear
rivers. Rent-free cabin included.”

When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees this ad she
quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin
River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache,
and to reenergize the nursing career she loves. But her high
hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving: the cabin is a
dump, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants
nothing to do with her. Realizing she’s made a huge mistake,
Mel decides to leave town the following morning.

But a tiny baby, abandoned on a front porch, changes her
plans… and a former marine cements them into place.

Melinda Monroe may have come to Virgin River looking for
escape, but instead she finds her home.
