When Ellie applies for the job, Noah is very hesitant to hire her as he worries about her appearance. All that makeup, all that curly hair and all that cleavage could be a serious distraction for young Noah. Although she had worked as an exotic dancer and had two children born out of wedlock to two different men, Ellie is totally different than what she appears to be.
I've only read one other of Carr's books and that was Virgin River Christmas and I really liked it. This latest was just as wonderful; the characters seemed so real to me in their thoughts, actions and very realistic dialogue. They are just everyday people living life to the best of their ability and very easy to relate to. Of course, some parts of it were predictable but the story is so heartwarming and Ellie is one of those characters you just love to root for.Carr sure knows how to elicit emotions in a reader. I was hesitant to put this one down as I couldn't wait to see how Ellie's custody situation and her relationship with Noah would be resolved.
