Ir are nly so many ways that can play Dangerous Tidings (Pacific Coast Private Eyes, out Though it would have added an interesting element to their relationship if it had gone differentlyOnef the things I love most about this series though is that the prior couples stories don t end after their book Some authors who write series seem to forget about the previous HH Second Chance Colton (The Coltons of Oklahoma, once their story is done like in Brenda Novak s Last Stand trilogy but Carr keeps them alive and active in every book They re not just bystanders but main stage players In this book big things happen to Mel and Jack and you get stuff with Paige and Preacher and Brie and Mike It s just really nice to have that continuity that connection to what s gonen before It s what makes this series like coming home to A Marked Man / Alaska With Love (Assassin-Shifter, old friendsI also enjoyed the secondary romances in this book even if nonef them were settled when the story ended There was Tom and Brendawho I m guessing will get their story in the third VC trilogy set for next year and Walt and Muriel Joe and Nikki plus a little bit Chivalrous Captain, Rebel Mistress / Breaking The Governesss Rules / The Gamekeepers Lady of Ricky and Liz who will get their story I assume in Paradise Valley Lotsf interesting stuff to read in this book And that s without mentioning the medical emergencies and forest fires that nearly kill main charactersOn the what didn t I like sidewell almost nothing The Newborn Daddy one thing thing that I really would have preferred was if the last scene in the book had been with Vanessa and Paul They were the main HHf the story yet for the last chunk Diary of a Domestic Goddess of the book they fell a bit by the wayside Whichkay fine That s Carr s style but I just think the ending would have been better suited using them instead f Walt and Muriel Those two ending the book didn t feel right to me But that s just my pinionOther than that no major complaints for this book It was a great read When I first started this series Carr s style Snowbound with Her Hero of telling a story annoyed me a little but it s grownn me and I know what to expect now So I thoroughly enjoyed this book If you ve been reading the VC series then you MUST read this Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, one And if you haven t read anyf the books then you should definitely give them a try especially if you like classic contemporary romance NOTE It s probably important to note that this book isn t exactly a stand alone Maybe it could be read alone but not in my Mountain Man opinion You really need to read the restf the series in the correct Her Man From Shilo order to get all the various nuances and relationships You d just miss a lot if you jumped in right now 5 stars Contemporary RomanceSecond Chance Pass is another bittersweet heartrending addition to the engaging Virgin River series with its portrayalf uaint small town community life soap The Agents Secret Past (Military Investigations opera worthy drama uirky characters love and humor Thisne had multiple storylines going Champagne with a Celebrity on involving all the previous characters as well as some newly introduced characters The focus couple Vanni and Paul faces some rather tough challenges to find their HEA including Paul s reluctance to admit his longstanding love for Vanni a sexy doctor pursuing Vanni her temper and stubbornness their collective guiltver moving Secret Agent Affair (The Doctors Pulaski, on after Matt s death and an unplanned pregnancy withne The Salvation of Zachary Baumkletterer of Paul s former lovers They are probably my least favorite couplef the series but luckily there s plenty Courting Callie (Heart of the West/Bachelor Auction, of romance and drama with thether couples to make up for it Mel and Jack endure some tough heartbreaking struggles
