Leslie Petruso has accepted a job in Virgin River with Haggerty Construction in order to get away from her ex-husband who just can’t stand that she is avoiding him. With the help of Brie, Connor Danson is staying in Virgin River until a high profile trial that he is affiliated with is over. He has changed his identity and is staying at one of the small cabins until his ordeal is over. Both Leslie and Connor have been burned by love and vow to never fall for anyone again.
The good folks of Virgin River, however, can easily see the chemistry between the two. Leslie and Connor begin to have deep feelings at the early onset of their relationship. This reader was rooting for both with the hopes of a smooth transition between being Danny and now Connor. Being in the wrong place totally uprooted Danny – aka Connor, and he is ready to put his life back together and be reunited with his sister and her twin boys.
This book was more emotional than the others. While Ms. Carr has been introducing newbies to Virgin River, this one was the most dramatic. The ended drew to a climax too quickly for this reader – thus the 4 stars. Connor’s sister’s love issue was left wide open; thus, moving the reader into the next installment.
