The Virgin River is a tributary of the Colorado River in the U.S. states of Utah, Nevada, and … The river is named for Thomas Virgin, a member of the first American party to see it, led by Jedediah Smith in 1826. Smith named it.
I liked this book and thought it a interesting storyline, although a woman moving to a small town after heartbreak is a common theme amongst romance novels.
Especially if the town is very isolated as this gives more opportunity for excitement and crises. And here we are in the wilds of California with drug growing and lots of woods, wild animals, hunting, shooting and fishing and all the opportunities for stories they bring.
The one thing I would mention is that this series – of which this is the first book in a series of 18(!!) is now also on TV and the TV version is nothing like the book – after episode one. You can see the novel’s events in the TV version, but tey are much magnified or changed, and no doubt some are in follow on books. So don’t watch TV first!
I thought that the story had some interesting sub-plots and was well written within its genre.
As an English person I would like to point out that some Americans have no idea of the concept of a normal sized house when they think that 1200 square foot is cosy and cocoon like. This is the size of an average UK 3 bedroomed house…
