Virgin River by Robyn Carr

This is the first book I have read by Robyn Carr and I will be back to read more of her work.  There is some sadness to deal with, but overall an enjoyable read, with a bit of romance.
Wanted: Midwife/nurse practitioner in Virgin River, population six hundred. Make a difference against the backdrop of towering California redwoods and crystal-clear rivers. Rent-free cabin included.

Recently widowed Melinda Monroe want to get away from her frantic job in an LA hospital's emergency room.  When Mel sees this ad she quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to re-energize the midwife/nursing career she loves.

Her high hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving: the cabin is a dump, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. Realizing she's made a huge mistake, Mel decides to leave town the following morning.

But a tiny baby, abandoned on a front porch, changes her plans...and a former marine cements them into place.
Melinda Monroe may have come to Virgin River looking for escape, but instead she finds her home.
