Redwood Bend: A Virgin River Novel By: Robyn Carr

Saturday, March 3, 2012
Katie Malone and her twin boys' trip along the beautiful mountain roads to Virgin River is stopped short by a tire as flat as her failed romance. As she stands by the side of the road pondering her next move, Katie hears a distinct rumble. The sight of the sexy, leather-clad bikers who pull up beside her puts her imagination into overdrive. Original.

Goodreads Summary

Katie Malone finally feels that she is getting her life back on track after her husband’s death, the burning of the family hardware store, and hiding out in Vermont to avoid being a target in a murder case. Now, she and her twin sons can finally join her brother, so they will be near family again. On the way to Virgin River, California, her SUV has a flat. It’s raining, her cell gets no reception, and she can’t budge the lug nuts. Who comes roaring up but motorcycle riding Dylan Childress? A spoiled child actor who was pulled away from L.A. by his actress grandmother, he feels that his life is missing something, but is absolutely against the idea of marriage and family. Too many of his family members have been divorced and remarried with way too many blended families. In the end, the attraction and caring between Katie and Dylan is strong enough to overcome his fears. The down-to-earth townspeople of Virgin River are there to provide help and humor throughout the story.

Katie and Dylan are likable characters and their attraction makes for some steamy reading. Her respect for what he sees as his limitations, and his attempts to go beyond them endear them to the reader. Situations with her sons, a mama bear, Grandmother Adele, her driver Randy, and Jack and Preacher at the restaurant/bar in town add fun dialogue to the story.

Three and a half Stars

  1. I like the idea of second chance stories and the idea of the poor lady getting one with another hurting individual sounds like a good read.

  1. This is one technology that I would love to be able to use for myself. It’s definitely a cut above the rest and I can’t wait until my provider has it. Your insight was what I needed. Thanks
