Deep in the Valley

Deep in the Valley
by Robyn Carr

Book One in the Grace Valley trilogy takes place in northern California, in the fictitious town of Grace Valley, filled with an assortment of likable characters where community and friendship are highly valued. Think An Irish Country Doctor and All Creatures Great and Small but not as sedate. June Hudson has a full professional life and many friends, but at age 37 is wishing for a relationship but in this small town there are no available prospects. She is also overworked and is taking applications seeking a second doctor for her clinic. But the ideal candidate she's giving a try seems to have a shady past. Then the DEA and other law enforcement agencies are zeroing-in on the illegal marijuana growers and an interesting man with a secret has been quietly appearing at June's house. For the most part a light, easy, enjoyable read though topics covered include sexual harassment, spouse abuse, the need for rural medicine for the poor, and the issues of illegal marijuana growers. You'll grow attached to the regular characters and enjoy the quiet romance. These characters will also cross-over into Carr's other series, The Virgin River series. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try All Creatures Great and Small and An Irish Country Doctor.] -- recommended by Charlotte K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
