Return to Virgin River was a nice visit to a place I have loved. I enjoyed seeing so many characters from previous books and seeing how they are doing. I expected a little more from this book, but overall, this book was nice and I enjoyed it. ( )

**I received an advanced readers copy of this book through NetGalley from the publisher in exchange for an honest review**

Fans of the Virgin River series rejoice - there's a new book after a many year hiatus! Readers will discover a similar formula to the prior additions to the series - two broken people who find each other and have to face obstacles to determine whether or not they can remain together.

It was nice to return back to Virgin River, a town that seems to have a magical quality to it. Nice people, healing powers of restorative rest and relaxation, and an overall atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Yet, this latest seemed to be missing something for me. I was not as gripped by the main characters Kaylee and Landry as I have been with prior characters, who do make guest appearances throughout the book.

Yet, it was a nice homecoming to Virgin River, a way to spend a few hours away from the world. If Carr plans to keep writing new additions to the series, I'll keep reading them! ( )

I absolutely cannot wait for the second season of this to come out on Netflix next month! It was easy to delve right back in to all the previous characters from the original Virgin River books. Welcome back and enjoy a great read. ( )

Terrific book. It has been many years since I last read a Virgin River book, other than My Kind of Christmas. It didn't take me long to slip right back into the comfort of Jack's Bar and the warmth of the town. I loved seeing them take a lost young woman under their wings and help her heal.

Kaylee lost her mother to cancer on Christmas Day the previous year. Since then, she has been drowning in grief, unable even to lose herself in her writing. With her latest book's fast-approaching deadline, Kaylee escapes to Virgin River and the cabin where she and her mom spent some time. She's devastated when she arrives to find the house engulfed in flames. She heads to Jack's to regroup and decide what to do. Jack, who is the town's "Mr. Fixit," immediately offers her a place to stay for a few days, and various other people offer their assistance. But it's local artist Landry who rents her his guest cabin.

Landry is a little bit of a loner. He grew up in Virgin River, left for a while, and returned when city life didn't work out for him. His father's death hit him hard also, and he lost himself in his art as he coped with his grief. In addition to his art, Landry also works as a dog trainer.

I loved watching the relationship between Kaylee and Landry grow. It started slowly, with drinks or coffee on one porch or the other, as they talked about anything and everything. Landry and his dog helped Kaylee overcome her fear of dogs. The more time that they spend together, the more that the sparks between them intensify. I loved seeing how they supported each other's careers and respected the other's need for space. Though they acknowledge their feelings, some obstacles keep them apart. Landry's biggest obstacle came as quite a surprise and was a bit harder to overcome than expected. I loved how they were honest with each other about their needs and that both were willing to compromise to bring them the future they wanted.

There was more going on in Kaylee's life than her growing relationship with Landry. Her main reason for coming to Virgin River was to reclaim her writing mojo. I hurt for her and her fear that it wouldn't happen and loved her determination to keep plugging away. It was interesting to see the effect the people of Virgin River had on her thought processes and the "writing exercise" that became so much more. Kaylee also needed to deal with her grief, and besides her time with Landry, it was a conversation with Mel that put her on the right track: "You know what I learned about grief? It's always there, and it's always at the center of your life, and then one day, you realize with some surprise that you had a fairly good day, and you wonder if grief left. Or if it got smaller. It didn't - - your world got bigger." Something that helped make Kaylee's world a little bigger was her rescue of a tiny kitten, and later a mama dog with puppies. I loved the scenes with them, and with Landry's dog, Otis. As the weeks passed, her world got even bigger as she made friends with Virgin River's people, and she had more good days than bad. I loved how she used her grief to help another and the unexpected twist that help took.

I enjoyed being able to check in with previous Virgin River couples. There were plenty of scenes with Jack and Mel, the ones who started it all. I especially liked that these characters didn't get dropped in willy-nilly, but were logical parts of the plot. It all makes me want to reread the series. ( )
