Reader Review: This is my first Robyn Carr book and WOW! I loved the story and the characters. Katie had been through so much but she was still such a optimist and a firecracker! I guess she had to be to keep up with her twin boys, Andy and Mitch. At first I thought it was a case of opposites attracting with Katie and Dylan. Dylan came from such a crazy messed up childhood situation and even though he had been running his own airplane charter business for 20 years, he didn't believe that he deserved or could even have a loving relationship. Especially in comparison to Katie's hero first husband. I didn't realize this was a whole series of books since I haven't read RC before so I'm SO glad it's a stand-alone. It's going to take me some time to read the 17 books that came before Redwood Bend!
Katie Malone and her twin boys' trip along the beautiful mountain roads to Virgin River is stopped short by a tire as flat as her failed romance. To make matters worse, the rain has set in, the boys are hungry and Katie is having trouble putting on a spare. As she stands at the side of the road pondering her next move, she hears a distinct rumble. The sight of the sexy, leather-clad bikers who pull up beside her puts her imagination into overdrive.
Dylan Childress and his buddies are on the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. But the sight of a woman in distress stops them in their tracks. And while the guys are checking out her car, she and Dylan are checking out one another.
In one brief moment, the world tilts on its axis and any previous plans Katie and Dylan might have had for their futures are left at the side of the road.

A lovely trip around the bend to Virgin River
February 28, 2012
Katie Malone decided that the best thing she could do for her five-year old twin boys was to give them a better sense of family after all they had been through. (In Hidden Summit, she was shipped off from Sacramento to Vermont when her brother, Connor Danson, needed witness protection.) So, she packed up her belongings and moved to join her brother in Virgin River, at least for the time being.
On her way up the mountain, Katie has a flat and Dylan Childress is one of four vacationing bikers who stopped to help. She specifically notices and recognizes him as a former child actor who she'd had a crush on as a pre-teen but she doesn't let on that she knows who he is. They later run into each other again at Jack's Bar and Dylan takes it from there.
These are two people who are essentially in the same place but one doesn't know it. Katie is ready for stability, community and commitment. Dylan comes from such a dysfunctional family, he doesn't believe that he has it in his DNA to have a successful, committed relationship in the long term. But everything about his present life just screams solid and committed. Both enter into a "commitment free" relationship, knowing Dylan will soon be returning to his home and business in Montana. When the time comes for him to leave, neither can admit to each other that it was more than a "fling."
There was something oddly comfortable about Katie and Dylan's relationship, even though it felt temporary a lot of the time and when it appeared to go south. These two characters were so really well defined you felt you knew the paths they were going to have to take to come to terms with each other, no matter how painful. It's not predictable but it's terribly honest. Carr took time and paid attention to the nuances of the characters and the developing emotions and ensured the details were in sync with their histories.
Many of the characters from past stories appear in supporting roles to this romance. However, missing are the other secondary story lines that I find critical to each book, where the residents we've come to know and love have substantive roles going forward. Even some of the new characters introduced here could have had more page time (Dylan's grandmother, Adele; Walt the biker). It's a drawback though largely compensated for by the depth of Katie and Dylan's story.
I was glad to see Katie get her own romance and this one was well done. I just hope we haven't seen the last of her and Dylan.
As good as all the others before it.

This Virgin River series is wonderful. This Book, Redwood Bend does not dissapoint. Katie and Dylan's story is fun. The twins are little angels. It was fun to visit with all the Virgin River people again. I can't wait for the next book!

I found Robyn Carr a few years back and am so glad that I found her books. I love the Virgin River series and eagerly await each new installment. The characters and storylines are heartwarming and draw in the reader. I highly recommend this author.
