Initely have the tissues in easy eachETA There are some mild spoilers in the comments 5 stars Contemporary RomanceSecond Chance Pass is another bittersweet heartrending addition to the engaging Virgin River series with its portrayal of uaint small town community life soap opera worthy drama uirky characters love and humor This one had multiple storylines going on involving all the previous characters as well as some newly introduced characters The focus couple Vanni and Paul faces some ather tough challenges to find their HEA including Paul s eluctance to admit his longstanding love for Vanni a sexy doctor pursuing Vanni her temper and stubbornness their collective guilt over moving on after Matt s death and an unplanned pregnancy with one of Paul s former lovers They are probably my least favorite couple of the series but luckily there s plenty of omance and drama with the other couples to make up for it Mel and Jack endure some tough heartbreaking struggles in this one that had me in tears Their intense devotion to each other and profound love is the foundation for the entire series so I was glad their ongoing storyline was a large part of this book There is also some touching moments between Rick and Jack during Rick s visit to Virgin River and his subseuent leave for IraPreacher and Paige are one of my favorite couples and the scenes involving Preacher s overprotectiveness of Paige during her pregnancy and delivery were hysterical and sweet I also enjoyed the budding teen omance between Tom and Brenda and the part where Tom gets sex advice from his older sister Vanni is soooo funnyand it sure pays off nicely with a big O for BrendaI enjoyed the omance between Paul s ex marine buddy Joe and Vanni s best friend and maid of honor Nikki even than the main couple and hope their elationship gets development and face time in future books because Joe is a total dreamboatThere are babies born near deaths for a couple of the main characters a deployment to Ira and dangerous wildfires that threaten the townwhewenough drama for a soap opera But through it all there s the omance humor love friendships and tight community that makes the series so great Another big 5 stars Second Chance Pass is the 5th and IMO the most touching story in the Virgin River series to date It also eaffirmed my belief that Jack Sheridan is the best hero to have ever graced the pages of a omance novel Not one to slink away uietly after his story was showcased in Virgin River book 1 of the series Jack and his wife Mel have continued to figure prominently in each book sinceparticularly in this one Jack s love and appreciation for his close friends and family his over the top insane love for Mel and his babies his zest for lifehas me with my fingers crossed that he continues starring or at least co starring in the emaining installments of the VR series He can evoke so much emotion from me it s pathetic Then again how can anyone stay dry eyed when Jack is praying to God begging actually for Him not to.
