With her beloved younger siblings settled and happy, Erin Foley has empty nest syndrome. At age thirty-five.
So she's hitting the pause button on her life and holing up in a secluded (but totally upgraded - she's not into roughing it) cabin near Virgin River. Erin is planning on getting to know herself, not the shaggy-haired mountain man she meets.
In fact, beneath his faded fatigues and bushy beard, Aiden Riordan is a doctor, recharging for a summer after leaving the navy. He's intrigued by the pretty, slightly snooty refugee from the rat race - her meditating and journaling are definitely keeping him at arm's length. He'd love to get closer - if his scruffy exterior and crazy ex-wife don't hold him back.
But maybe it's something in the water - unlikely romances seem to take root in Virgin River...helped along by some well-intentioned meddling, of course.
