Synopsis from Goodreads:
Sean has settled down in spite of himself --- he's not the cocky young fighter pilot he was when Franci left, and he wants them to try again. After all, they have a history ... but that's not all they share.
Franci's secret reason for walking away when Sean refused to commit is now three and a half: a redheaded cherub named Rosie who shares her daddy's emerald-green eyes. Sean is stunned --- and furious with Franci for the deception.
News travels fast in Virgin River, and soon the whole town is taking sides. Rebuilding their trust could take a small miracle --- and the kind of love that can move mountains.
The personal conflict within the female lead was astounding. Although she caused a great deal of her troubles on her own in the first place, seeing her trying to muddle her way out of her newfound sink hole was awe-inspiring and jaw dropping. More than once I found myself cursing her new boyfriend. He was such a pompous, arrogant, presumptuous jerk that I couldn`t figure out what she saw in him. I actually cheered when he hit the road. I did find that the relationship between the two main characters (even with said boyfriend out of the way) was just a little too easy. There were so many issues that they needed to work through before they got to where they were, but then again, they were the type of people to take things at face value, which was their issue originally, so the circle came about face.
As a whole I found this novel to be a very mellow, approachable read that really tugs at your heart. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and getting to know these characters.
