THE RECIPE FOR HAPPINESS:
MAKING IT UP AS YOU GO ALONG
Rising sous-chef Kelly Matlockâ€™s sudden collapse at work is
a wake-up call. Disillusioned and burned out, sheâ€™s
retreated to her sister Jillianâ€™s house in Virgin River to
rest and reevaluate.
Puttering in Jillâ€™s garden and cooking with her heirloom
vegetables is wonderful, but Virgin River is a far cry from
San Francisco. Kellyâ€™s starting to feel a little too
unmotivated...until she meets Lief Holbrook. The handsome
widower looks more like a lumberjack than a sophisticated
screenwriterâ€”a combination Kelly finds irresistible. But
less appealing is Liefâ€™s rebellious stepdaughter, Courtney.
Sheâ€™s the reason they moved from L.A., but Courtneyâ€™s
finding plenty of trouble even in Virgin River.
Kellyâ€™s never fallen for a guy with such serious baggage,
but some things are worth fighting for. Besides, a bratty
teenager canâ€™t be any worse than a histrionic chef...right?

Re: Harvest Moon
I think you will love this latest visit to Virgin River. I must say that when I read the synopsis my first thought was "Oh no, not a sullen teen." I was not thrilled with this plot development. Turns out, I thought Courtney's subplot was wonderful. This book is as as much her story as it is about the romance between Kelly and Lief. Don't get me wrong, I liked Kelly and Lief. Their relationship was romantic, sweet, and just a little bit sexy. I was enjoyed catching-up with familiar characters like Jill and Colin. Courtney, though, was the stand-out character. Her story inspired a range of emotions, from tears to frustration to hope. Harvest Moon is definitely a keeper.

Robyn Carr is a famous women's fiction novelist. I have read his books and to tell the truth I love them very much.It is a wonderful review. I really enjoy it.

I thought that Harvest Moon was a fitting close to this year's Virgin River Trilogy. With Harvest Moon Ms. Carr has again tugged at my heartstrings, and left me as anxious as ever for a return to Virgin River.
