A special Thank you to Harlequin for sending me this book to review.

Former marine Tom Cavanaugh’s come home to Virgin River, ready to take over his family’s apple orchard and settle down. He knows just what the perfect woman will be like: sweet, decent, maybe a little naive. The marrying kind.

Nothing like Nora Crane. So why can’t he keep his eyes off the striking single mother?

Nora may not have finished college, but she graduated with honors from the school of hard knocks. She’s been through tough times and she’ll do whatever it takes to support her family, including helping with harvest time at the Cavanaughs’ orchard. She’s always kept a single-minded focus on staying afloat…but suddenly her thoughts keep drifting back to rugged, opinionated Tom Cavanaugh.

Both Nora and Tom have their own ideas of what family means. But they’re about to prove each other completely wrong…

I am so in love with The Virgin River Series. I just can not get enough! I think this one has to be my favorite yet. I just love love love it! If you have not ever tried a romance novel, then I'd suggest you start with this one. Especially since I'm giving away a copy!

I love the setting! It's another character. This isn't just Virgin River this time. This takes place on an apple orchard. A lovely farm house, orchards of apples, and a good looking wholesome man. Oh, he's rich too. What is not to like my friends? I was all over this. There are wonderful descriptions and I truly felt like I was tasting the sour apple cider and getting blisters on my hands from all the apple picking. I felt like a part of the orchard. 

One thing author Robyn Carr does so well is write realistically. She writes real people. Nora is a single mother. She's working hard to provide for her girls. What's more real than that? Robyn Carr includes issues relevant to today's world. She writes military families so well. This is probably why I enjoy her writing so much. I feel like it could really happen. All the conversations feel real. There's no cheese involved.

The character's are endearing and you feel like you really get to know them. Time is spent on each one so that you get a sense of them. It just enhances the story. I'm all for character development!

I always seem to choose a character in the book that I want to be. I felt like Maxie, Tom's grandmother. There were points when I wished I was her and could slap Tom around a bit and tell him to get with Nora already! I did love that Tom and Nora were friends first. That's how it should be. Those are my favorite kinds of love stories.

This was a great story. I was hooked and I literally couldn't put the book down. Just writing this review makes me want to read it again. I think I might. I need to make a trip down to Virgin River!
