Losing friends in...5...4...3...2...1...2.5 stars. Yes, I know. Everyone loves Virgin River. Yet again, I've found another train I won't be jumping on. *cue sadface*I didn't read the first book, so my opinion of the series is only from book 2. Shelter Mountain was a buddy read that I couldn't pass up because of a dear friend and my curiosity to learn about this person's similarities to a character in the book. And that was the best part of reading - getting to see this person's book alter-ego. The story itself was not my thing. Why, you ask? I just don't care enough about everyday life to want to know how other people live everyday life, even when you throw in a crazy ex or some other obstacle. That's about it in a nutshell. By about the halfway mark, I was skimming. I read the first sex scene and the last couple of chapters and was ready to be done. This is why I don't have much to write by way of review. Sorry, fans. I was bored. :( I feel kind of guilty. Kind of. At least a little.
