Former marine Tom Cavanaugh has come home to Virgin River, ready to take over his family’s apple orchard and settle down. He knows just what the perfect woman will be like: sweet, decent, maybe a little naive. The marrying kind.

Nothing like Nora Crane. So why can’t he keep his eyes off the striking single mother?

Nora may not have finished college, but she graduated with honors from the school of hard knocks. She’s been through tough times and she’ll do whatever it takes to support her family, including helping with harvest time at the Cavanaughs’ orchard. She’s always kept a single-minded focus on staying afloat…but suddenly her thoughts keep drifting back to rugged, opinionated Tom Cavanaugh.

Both Nora and Tom have their own ideas of what family means. But they’re about to prove each other completely wrong.…


Review: I love every book by Robyn Carr. I would have a hard time picking my favorite one. Each hero is so different from the last and seems to be even more likable and even more hot! I don’t know how she manages to do it each and every time. Her books are like going home to your grandma’s house. You feel wrapped up in a hug of warmness and just want to kick back under the blankets till you finish her latest novel. Then when you are close to being done you want to weep because you know the wait for the next one is going to be a long time. You just might have to start re-reading her back list in order to keep you sated till the next novel comes out.Her latest novel has quickly become one that I can’t wait to re-read. Sunrise Point does not disappoint! You have the interaction with the rest of the town that makes the series so great.

Tom is a big strong ex-Marine who returns to Virgin River to help run his family’s apple orchard. He doesn’t want to hire Nora but his grandmother has something to say about that. She hires Nora on the spot. There’s instant attraction and tension between Nora and Tom. They both have things that they need to work through. If they are able to work through their personal problems and apprehensions about starting a relationship with each other they have the beginnings of something very special.

I have had a soft spot for Nora since she first appeared in a Virgin River novel. Being a single mother myself I know how hard it is to make a living for my kids and like her I will do anything to do so. She’s fiercely independent and is proud of her life that she has created for her two young children. She loves the town of Virgin River because of all that the town has done for her. Nora grows a lot during Sunrise Point where she learns the truth about her father. I cannot wait till the next Robyn Carr!
