SOMETIMES LOVE TAKES ROOT IN UNEXPECTED PLACES IF YOU’LL ONLY LET IT GROWColin Riordan came to Virgin River to recuperate from a horrific helicopter crash the scars of which he bears inside and out His family is wonderfully supportive but it’s his art than truly soothes his troubled Superb Made me bawl like a baby at the end I got an ARC of this one from NetGalley and I plowed through it in one day haven't done that with a book in a looong time After reading Promise Canyon and adoring it I doubted that Robyn Carr could top it or at least eual it But she did This one is in the top three of my favorites of the series the others being Virgin River and Temptation Ridge There's just something about those Riordan men This is Army Black Hawk helicopter pilot Wild Man Colin Riordan's story second oldest of the Riordan brothers Colin 40 was in a copter crash severely injured ended up in rehab then became hooked on painkillers and was caught trying to buy pain meds on the street Luckily with his brothers' help or interference as he sometimes sees it he got the help he needed but now he's out of the military unable to fly any and has retreated to Virgin River brother Luke's place for some RR while he figures out his next move Colin has an incredible talent for painting wildlife it may beome a career when he's done with flying and he rents a cabin in the woods so he can snap some pics of wildlife which he then references when he paints One day while painting out in a meadow he meets up with Jillian Matlock 32 a former PR exec for a software company who's in VR on sabbatical from her high pressure job Jill's getting over a humiliating breakup with a boyfriend who used her in a terrible way shattering her trust and judgment in men and practically wrecking her career Jill's renting the old Victorian mansion that belonged to Hope McCrea with plans to use the extensive gardens to grow heirloom fruits and vegetables just like the great grandmother who raised her did If things work out in the next 6 months maybe Jill will start her own businessJill and Colin hit it off as friends Neither is looking for a relationship Colin keeps telling himself that 'girl next door' Jilly is not the type he usually dates but the time they spend together he uses her property when he wants to paint outdoors the they are attracted to each other They finally decide to act on that attraction although both are up front about their affair only being for a set amount of time Colin is heading to Africa in September to photograph big game and to check into a flying career there he's not ready yet to give up the adrenaline rush he gets from flying and Jilly has only 6 months in Hope's house before she has to decide if she's going back to her old job or will forge a new path So the affair starts with an end date in sight and Colin and Jilly make the most of their time together Jeez were they hot together and sooo perfect for each other too And their first time up on the roof Scorching Of course you know they're going to fall in love but will either admit it Will either be willing to change their future plansOh my did I enjoy this one It just pushed all my buttons First of all I just adored Jilly Rarely does Robyn Carr give you a perfect heroine in fact a lot of readers have issues with some of her heroines but Jilly was just a generous spirit totally unselfish she wants Colin to have all that he thinks he needs smart a real go getter a sometime uirky sometimes funny charmer I just loved how she really got to Colin Now Colin he had his moments where I wasn't thrilled with him he was kind of prickly when it came to older brother Luke handing out advice to him; he was used to doing things his own way and I wasn't sure if he had it in him to be unselfish and put somebody first besides himself He had a lot of growing to do But make no mistake he adored Jilly and showed her time and again spoiler aheadBut when he left Jilly at the end of the book to go to Africa just like he said he would I felt like he was leaving me I just about died right along with Jilly How could he leave But have no fear RC made the right decision to have him leave You knew the devastated Jilly wouldn't stay down for long And you knew eventually Colin like his brothers predicted would come to his senses Oh but the agony that RC puts the reader throughend spoiler The author hints that Jilly looks like this well known actress Besides this main plot Ms Carr gives us some very worthy subplots toowe find out who is the father of young ex Marine Denny Cutler This plot and the character of Denny gets a few chapters in the book Denny is a great character and I hope one day he gets his own bookone of the older inhabitants of VR seems to have Alzheimer's disease We get to see how the town reacts and what the family does about it We learn about Jilly's sous chef sister Kelly and learn what she's been hiding about her love life from JillyThe Riordan family and Jilly attend Aiden's wedding in Chico Colin and Jilly have some hot moments in their hotel room before the wedding We see the extent of the sibling rivalry and lovehate relationship between Luke and Colin Luke has a few busybody moments which remind me of Jack SheridanWe briefly meet the hero widower Lief for the next book in the series Harvest Moon and wonder how any woman will be able to put up with his bratty teenage daughterThis book was just about perfect for me The only thing I wished for as I was blubbering through the last chapters was of an ending While I loved the very emotional finale I was dying for a bit of an epilogue Perhaps I'll get what I'm looking for in Harvest Moon Other than that minor disappointment o u t s t a n d i n g 5 BIG stars

Wild Man CreekSoulStung personally and professionally by an ill advised affair PR guru Jillian Matlock arrived in town via golden parachute She’s bought an old Victorian with a promising garden and is looking forward to cultivating something other than a corporate brandWhen Jillian finds Colin at Might as well shoot me because I'm going to say it againthis is my favorite book in the series I really mean it this time LOL It might have taken Robyn Carr 12 books to get everything just right but she succeeded in doing so with Wild Man Creek This is my favorite because1 The heroine Jillian Matlock is NOT a bitch She gets totally screwed around by her boyfriend and is forced to take a leave of absence from her joba software manufacturing business that she helped build from the ground up Going from a 60 hour workweek to not working at all Jill hasn't a clue what she is going to do; so she packs her bags closes up her townhouse and just starts driving Remembering a uaint place where she and her sister had stopped briefly the year before Jill heads to Virgin River She rents an old 3 story Victorian style mansion and needing something to take her mind off how badly she was betrayed she puts to use the teachings of her grandmother and starts tending the massive gardens2 The hero Colin Riordan is not the typical ex serviceman residing in VR He is not ready to settle down with a wife and have childrenhe is there only until his body has healed from a near fatal helicopter crash and his mind has healed from the dependency he developed for the pain killers Colin loves to fly and is determined to do so again Painting wildlife is his second lovea natural talent he has nurtured since childhood Setting up his easel paints on property he thought was uninhabited Colin realizes his error in judgment when he encounters a most unhappy inhabitant3 The relationship between Colin and Jillian is not encumbered by any past secrets or future expectations When they become lovers it is with the complete understanding that the situation is temporary for they both have dreams that as yet are unfulfilled They are compatible in every way however and bring out the best in each other They laugh together cook together share endless stories and experiences have over the top mind blowing sex andwellthat last compatibility is pretty much the icing on the cake Before long Colin and Jill are living together still fully aware that their relationship will be ending when Colin leaves for So Africa at the end of the summer just living each day to the fullest4 There isn't a secondary relationship taking up space When we encounter other Virgin River dwellers it is either at Jack's bar or a Riordan family get together This way Carr gives us the best of both worldsour focus stays on the main couple yet at the same time we get to find out what everyone else has been up to And absolutely no one is left out Jack Mel Preacher Paige Mike Brie Paul Vanessa Luke Shelby Rick Liz Cam Abby Sean Franci Aiden Erin Ian Marcie Noah Ellie Clay Lilly Dan the ex pothead Art Walt Muriel George Mrs Riordan The only side story involves the young man Denny and his tentative relationship with Jack Unfortunately that did not turn out as I had hoped5 The ending is absolute perfection I have listened to the audio books for the entire series and I am keeping Wild Man Creek on my ipod ueue permanently just so I can listen to the ending over and over again Possibly the best HEA everAlthough the series continues indefinitely I do think RC could have ended it right here Everyone I care about see #4 is in a good place in life and adding new characters will have the population of Virgin River bursting at the seams But I say all this before reading the next installment Harvest Moonthe book that who knows just might be my favorite of the series
