From Publisher for Review



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 doesn’t have the first clue about 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 site 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.


Review: We've come back to Virgin River - this is my second foray there, the first being Hidden Summit. Katie Malone is Conner Danson's sister who has come out to Virgin River to make a new start and so her twin sons can be closer to their uncle. Katie and Dylan Childress, who is a child TV star, meet unexpectedly when her van gets a flat tire on her way into town. He and his biker buddies help out and from the first moment he looked in her eyes, he couldn't stop thinking of her. And she of him. How could this work - a child actor who fears commitment like the plague and a young widowed mother who is trying to succeed on her own?

Redwood Bend is a sweet romance in which you will be captivated by the new main characters and happy to see some returning faces. I loved Katie's strength - she's an army widow who raised twin boys on her own - and her ability to put her children above all else...even her happiness. Unfortunately, not all mothers can do so, but Katie's an excellent mother and a loving friend and sister. I loved the twins, Dylan's grandmother, and her driver! I thought they brought real humor and liveliness to the story. Just when you've stopped looking, something wonderful can fall into your lap. Dylan and Katie's story is a prime example. A well-done and relaxing read, I was happy to visit Virgin River again in Redwood Bend.
