I am utterly overwhelmed with happy emotions upon finishing Wild Man Creek. I did not want this book to end. Colin and Jillian take my breath away! Wild Man Creek is full of life, laughter, love, and family. I have never read a series that makes me so happy. When I began the book I got sucked into the marvelous world. I felt a part of the cozy town of Virgin River where everyone knows everyone and they all are there to lend a hand to their neighbors. Wild Man Creek carries you away on a rainbow and at the end you find the beautiful town of Virgin River.
Colin and Jillian are simply fantastic. They are both coming home to Virgin River, however, they don’t realize it at the time. Each is broken in their own way in need of not only recuperation from wounds but also in need of family, a new beginning. Their lives have totally been turned upside down. They both have worked most of their lives with one goal in mind to be successful in their respective careers. It was thrilling to watch them both discover new things about themselves including the fact that perhaps their previous careers do not have to define them.
I am quickly discovering that Robyn Carr has this canny ability to make me cry. Tears of heartbreak or tears of joy it simply wonderful to read something so moving. Wild Man Creek will be added to my best ever list! Wild Man Creek is a remarkable love story that sweeps you away and leaves you aching for more!
