Series: Virgin River (Book 17)
ROMANCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION...
When Connor Danson becomes an unwitting witness to a violent crime, he
is forced to leave Sacramento and keep a low profile until the trial is
over. He arrives in the tiny mountain town of Virgin River with a chip
on his shoulder and an ache in his heart.
Leslie Petruso didn't want to leave her hometown either. But she can't
stand another minute of listening to her ex-husband tell everyone that
his new wife and impending fatherhood are the best thing that ever
happened to him. Virgin River may not be home, but it's a place where
she can be anonymous.
Neither Connor nor Leslie is remotely interested in starting a new
relationship ... until they meet one another. Even they can't deny they
have a lot in common -- broken hearts notwithstanding. And in Virgin
River, no one can stay hidden away from life and love for very long...
Very good book. When he came to Virgin River to wait to testify, Connor was so angry at everything that had happened to him. Leslie was happy to be there because it got her away from her ex. Connor went to work for Paul and rediscovered his love of working with his hands. He also started to get to know Leslie. She found that the more time she spent in Virgin River the more of her old self she got back. Her self-esteem had been very low thanks to her ex. There were several times he showed up in Virgin River, trying to convince Leslie that they could still be friends. I loved the way she dealt with that. She and Connor didn't intend to fall in love, but the more time they spent together, the closer they got. He was even able to tell her why he was there. I loved seeing characters from previous books.
