Book Review - Redwood Bend by Robyn Carr

About The Book:

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. To make matters worse, the rain has set in, the boys are hungry and Katie is having trouble putting on a spare. As she stands at the side of the road pondering her next move, she hears a distinct rumble. The sight of the sexy, leather-clad bikers who pull up beside her puts her imagination into overdrive.

Dylan Childress and his buddies are on the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. But the sight of a woman in distress stops them in their tracks. And while the guys are checking out her car, she and Dylan are checking out one another.

In one brief moment, the world tilts on its axis and any previous plans Katie and Dylan might have had for their futures are left at the side of the road.

I absolutely adore Robyn Carr's "Virgin River" books, and "Redwood Bend" is no exception. With the 16th book in this series, Robyn manages to keep the story fresh, the characters interesting, and the action and romance lively and lovely - and that is an admirable accomplishment for any writer.

The storyline in "Redwood Bend" focuses on Dylan, the former child star who has grown up to become a strong, confident man, and Kate, a single mom of a couple of rambunctious twin boys who is strong and confident in her own way. When these two meet, the instant attraction is like fireworks going off, and reading about their trials and triumphs is just pure pleasure!

Robyn's  next book in the Virgin River series, "Sunrise Point," comes out in May, and there will a new Christmas book in the Fall!  I personally can't wait!

I liked it a lot (just finished it) but I think I liked Hidden Summit a little better. HS is the prequel if you will, to RWB. It's Connor and Leslie's story. *sigh* I loved it!

Love Ms Carr's work, and really enjoyed this one. Not only because of the sweet love story, but because I always feel like Ms Carr finds something interesting to teach us every single time. This time, among other things, was the whole apple picking industry. Where else can you read a wonderful love story and feel like you know everyone in town, and yet still get a glimpse of something most of us probably never think about.
