Romance

SOMETIMES LOVE TAKES ROOT IN UNEXPECTED PLACES—IF YOU’LL ONLY LET IT GROW

Colin Riordan came to Virgin River to recuperate from a horrific helicopter crash, the scars of which he bears inside and out. His family is wonderfully supportive, but it’s his art than truly soothes his troubled soul.

Stung personally and professionally by an ill-advised affair, PR guru Jillian Matlock arrived in town via golden parachute. She’s bought an old Victorian with a promising garden and is looking forward to cultivating something other than a corporate brand.

When Jillian finds Colin at his easel in her yard, there’s an instant connection. But both are holding romance at arm’s length— looking to simplify, not complicate, their lives. And Jill may yet be lured back to Silicon Valley...

No one arrives in Virgin River without a story, and no one leaves—if they ever do—unchanged.

Re: Wild Man Creek

I must say, I love the Riordan men and was happy to greet the arrival of Colin's story, the brother with whom we are least familiar. In Wild Man Creek, Colin arrives in Virgin River to recover from a near fatal helicopter accident and the loss of his career in the military. Jill is there to recover from a bad relationship that led to the loss of her job. They find healing in Virgin River and with each other. I really liked the relationship between Jill and Colin, and the small adventures they encounter along the way. I must admit my favorite part is always the interplay among the Riordan family and watching the brothers get in each others business.
(Maria Munoz 6:01pm December 17, 2010)

I have to agree with Maria, the byplay amongst the Riordan family is always fun to see. It's nice that such big strong burly men are so easily affectionate with one another, and show such a loving protectiveness for each other.

Every year there seems to be one book in the series that stands out for me, and even if I weren't keeping the complete series would have to be on my shelf, and without having completed reading this year's trilogy I would have to say that this year's winner might very well be Wild Man Creek.

(
Deb Pelletier 3:43pm January 29, 2011)

Haven't read any of the Virgin River series yet, but sounds like I need to. I loved Jack Sheridan's narrative, and the books covers are beautiful. I think I also read that a lot of the men are ex military -- even more reason to read them.
(

Love Virgin River, Jack. You guys and gals really know how to establish a
hometown anyone would love. Throw in patriotic mood and pretty women
and great guys and then make all of us wish we could visit your bar as one of
your own. Each and every story that comes out of Virgin River invites us all to
sit back and enjoy our time with you. Please don't change as you town grow
outward to accommodate all the newbies. Love to all!

Robyn - Just to let you know I'm glad that "Jack" stopped by to fill me in on the latest happenings in Virgin River. Sounds like things are really getting interesting around there right now and I'm real anxious to keep in touch to find out what's going to happen next.

I'm hoping to get some time to come on down and visit because I'd sure like to know what shenanigans Clay and Lilly are going to get into. Tell all the town folks that I said hello and hope to hear all about the going-ons and so to send me a hollar when they have time.
(

It sounds like you have another winner on your hands. I can't wait to read it!! It makes me wish that I was a Navajo!! lol I love to read books like this - the old-fashioned style of storytelling, which is a bit of a lost art. Thank you for keeping it alive.
(
Peggy Roberson 10:04pm January 29, 2011)

Your books have become my favorite books - the scenery you
paint with your words is so soothing and I always feel something good around the corner. This from a Nora Roberts/J.D.Robb addict. Thank you for writing your stories.

Ginger Hinson 11:44pm January 29, 2011)

What an...uh...interest-whetting entry! I'll definitely be getting this book, as I've been trying to get all your others. Well, some I can't get; they're too rare. But I've been reading those hard-to-find books to the exclusion of your newer books. Next up is WOMAN'S OWN. I'm so glad our city library bought and kept these books. I'm certainly benefiting now that I have more time to read than I did when they first came out.
(

(
Gloria Walshver 8:27am February 2, 2011)

I just want everyone to know my address is c/o Jack's Bar,
Virgin River, Calif.
I've read and reread all the books in the series...just finished WILDMAN CREEK and am ready for HARVEST MOON. I wondered what Jill was going to do with all those veggies. Maybe we'll find out in Harvest Moon...
I love books set in small towns and Virgin River fits that category along with great characters. Will Kelly and Paddy find each other in V.R.?
(

(
Bonnie Gonzales 8:52pm February 3, 2011)

I am a huge fan of Robyn Carr, and have been since the publication of the first Virgin River novel.

With the release of Wild Man Creek I have found my personal favorite for the 2011 releases.

It's nice to see that sometimes even heroes have flaws, and need to work through them. While it couldn't have been easy to write such a flawed character struggling with addiction Ms. Carr didn't back off the subject, and showed the daily struggle to keep sober and to keep family in perspective.

When I turned the last page of Wild Man Creek I was for the moment satisfied with my Virgin River trip, but anxious for Harvest Moon.
(
Sandi Shilhanek 1:38pm February 7, 2011)

Would love to live in Virgin River where men take care of their women and women take care of their men and babies! Agatha
