Book Review: "Forbidden Falls" by Robyn Carr

Book Description:

Reverend Noah Kincaid moved to Virgin River to re-open an abandoned church he bought on eBay. Like Noah, the place is a little empty inside and needs some loving care. The young widower arrives ready to roll up his sleeves and build a place of worship and welcome, but he needs some help. And the Lord works in mysterious ways.... With her tight shirts and short skirts, "Pastor's assistant" is not a phrase that springs to mind when Noah meets brassy, beautiful Alicia Baldwin. The former exotic dancer needs a respectable job so she can regain custody of her children. And Noah can't help but admire her spunk and motherly determination. The pastor and the stripper: an unlikely team to revitalize a church, much less build a future. The couple has so many differences, but in Virgin River anything is possible, and happiness is never out of the question.

My thoughts:

This is book 8 of the Virgin River series.  I can't say this was one of my favorites - I still enjoyed it, though...

This book was about the new reverend in town who is opening up an abandoned church.  The story was pretty much about him and his assistant.  It was still a quick read like the others, but it was also easy to put down too. I think the part I didn't really care for is that this book unlike the others in the series didn't have a lot of 'back story' in it.  I guess it still 'worked' but it just wasn't like any of the others in the series where the other characters were still a pretty good amount of the book.  I love to hear the updates on the other characters - just my quirk I guess.

I will still continue to read the series - but now it is time for a break from it. =)

Happy Reading!!

  1. I haven't read any of this series, but the cover art on the books are gorgeous. I have been trying to read a lot of my books on my TBR piles this year, but I keep seeing new ones I want to read, so it's such a struggle trying to read my older books.
