Small book review

20 Aug

I don’t feel good today, so I’m going to post a very short book review of Whispering Rock by Robyn Carr. This is book three in the Virgin River trilogy. I reviewed books one and two and had many positive things to say. This book continues in the same fashion. It also continues the trend that book two began; it drifts away from the supposed main characters.

I almost feel tricked. The back cover blurb basically says the book is about a wounded cop (Mike) who wants to settle down. He’s been married twice, both of the marriages failed, but he’s ready to change that. In steps his friends little sister. Brie is a recently divorced prosecuting attorney who has been brutally beaten and raped. She escapes to the small town of Virgin River to heal and learn to trust again.

The pages dedicated to that story were slim. I’d say out of the 362 pages that compose the book, less than half of them are about Mike and Brie. The book flips back to the characters introduced in books one and two. I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing, but I didn’t appreciate this book like I did the first two. You may feel different. If you’ve read it, let me know what you think.
