Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Carr continues her Thunder Point series (The Newcomer, 2013) as Devon McAllister escapes from a compound where members of an isolated, cult-like commune are led by charismatic Jacob. He is the father of her three-year-old daughter, Mercy, and seems to be growing ever more paranoid. Devon and Mercy are picked up hitchhiking by Rawley, a crusty old Vietnam War veteran who works in Thunder Point at the bar owned by Carr-regular Cooper. Rawley convinces Devon to stay in town for a while, and she begins to make friends in the community and feel a degree of safety when she meets Spencer, the new high-school football coach. But she’s not out of danger, as things at the compound start looking more and more like Ruby Ridge or Waco. The tight-knit but welcoming Thunder Point community continues to support and protect each other, and fans will be happy to see how things are going with Cooper; Sarah, who has had to make a decision about her career as a Coast Guard helicopter pilot; and other endearing characters. --Diana Tixier Herald


"A sweet romance..." --Library Journal on THE WANDERER

"My Kind of Christmas is another fabulous read from an author deft at mining deep emotion." --BookPage on MY KIND OF CHRISTMAS

"Ms. Carr may often revisit familiar romance themes, but one cannot deny the strength and ease of her writing.... Ms. Carr tugs out the unique aspects of [the] characters to create a story that feels both fresh and familiar, and wonderfully comfortable. It's a mark of her skill that Redwood Bend works as well as it does while traveling along such well-trodden paths." --NY Journal of Books on REDWOOD BEND

"In this heartwrenching Christmas tale-the 20th installment in Carr's bestselling Virgin River series, after Sunrise Point-two damaged souls find healing together.... Longtime fans and new readers alike will race through this tearjerker, hoping for Patrick and Angie to find their happy ending." --Publisher's Weekly on MY KIND OF CHRISTMAS

"This book is an utter delight."

-RT Book Reviews on Moonlight Road

"Strong conflict, humor and well-written characters are Carr's calling cards, and they're all present here.... You won't want to put this one down."

-RT Book Reviews on Angel's Peak

"This story has everything: a courageous, outspoken heroine, a to-die-for hero and a plot that will touch readers' hearts on several different levels. Truly excellent."

-RT Book Reviews on Forbidden Falls

"An intensely satisfying read. By turns humorous and gut-wrenchingly emotional, it won't soon be forgotten."
-RT Book Reviews on Paradise Valley

"Carr has hit her stride with this captivating series."
-Library Journal on the Virgin River series

"The Virgin River books are so compelling-I connected instantly with the characters and just wanted more and more and more."

-#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber
