Deep in the Valley (Grace Valley Series #1)
by Robyn Carr
Welcome to Grace Valley, California—where blood runs thicker…ties are stronger…and love is all the more sweet
Visitors to the town often remark about the valley's peace and beauty—both of which are plentiful. Unlocked doors, front porches, pies cooling in the windows—this is country life at its finest. But visitors don't always see what lies at the heart of a community. Or just beyond…
June Hudson grew up in Grace Valley, the daughter of the town doctor. Leaving only to get her medical training, she returned home and followed in her father's footsteps. Some might say she chose the easy, comfortable route…but June knows better.
For June, her emergency room is wherever she's needed—or wherever a patient finds her. She is always on call, her work is her life and these people are her extended family. Which is a good thing, since this is a town where you should have picked your husband in the ninth grade. Grace Valley is not exactly the place to meet eligible men—until an undercover DEA agent suddenly starts appearing at all sorts of strange hours.
Everybody has secrets down in the valley. Now June has one of her own.

★★★★★ - Budlink
I have read, I thought, all the Robyn Carr books and am thrilled to have a 'new' book to read! This was both a beautiful story but also one with a 'story' of its own. Two really... Good does win over evil and we are really our brother's keeper!

I started reading the Virgin River series 5 months ago and have now read ALL of Robyn Carr's books. She has an extraordinary talent for reaching her readers.
★★★★☆ - Mary Shumate

★★★★★ - choosyfloosy "choflo"
excellent series, as always. robyn carr sets up the place and people so well, the stories and characters of her individual books are immediately involving. her descriptions are absorbed rather than explained because her ability to draw the reader in without obvious manipulation. i cannot recommend her too highly.

I can honestly say that Deep in the Valley is one of the best novels I have read in quite some time. However, the classification as a romance novel is somewhat misleading. Don't get me wrong, there is romance in it, it is just that there is so much more to this book than just romance. It is about the many different relationships and roles that one person plays with the individuals of an entire town. If you live in Northern California, or anywhere with small towns, you'll recognize your neighbors as you turn the pages. I loved this book. I'd read it again in a heartbeat.

Have only read half of the book and am already into all the characters. Can't wait to finish this one and go on to book 2 and 3. Love the author's style, location and characters. Makes me want to go there and be a part of their lives.

In her late thirties in Grace Valley, California, Dr. June Hudson wonders if she will ever find a lasting relationship. She would like something similar to that shared between her dad and her mom who died nine years ago. Even as she speculates that no one is available for her, June interviews a new doctor, John Stone, to share the overwhelming workload, but he has a past that makes him seem shaky.
Beneath the surface of the small Mendocino County town lies different extremes of sexual harassment. Gus Craven is physically and mentally abusive towards his wife and children. Gary Baker not only hits his spouse Christina, he demands she remain model thin even though she carries his baby. Even the married pastor makes plays for females and has had affairs. Can June and company idly sit by while her gender is under attack? She is also beginning to fall in love with an undercover Drug Enforcement Agent.
DEEP IN THE VALLEY is a complex look inside relationships in an isolated small Northern California town. The story line is enjoyable yet scary because the large cast of charcaters seems genuine. Although the ending lessons the impact of the problems of spousal and child abuse, and the need to bring medical attention to remote areas, the plot works because fans care about the vast ensemble. Robyn Carr provides readers a powerful, thought-provoking work of contemporary fiction that centers on some members of our population living their lives under constant terrorist activity.

It is a good start to a new series. Liked the way she introduced the people into Grace Valley.
★★★★★ - Anonymous
She pinpointed the location of a vole and stalked it. She pounced and trapped the vole under her paws. She killed it with a swift bite. She did the same to a mouse and carried them both back to Spiritnight.
★★★☆☆ - Patfae
It was interesting to see the faith in God that these people have. It can be an inspiration to anyone.
I will read more books by this author.
★★★★★ - Terrilyn
I absolutely LOVE all of Robyn Carr's books. I want more of the Grace Valley series. The Virgin River Series are equally as good. I have read all of her books and am waiting for more. Please continue to add to the Virgin River and Grace Vally series. I love all the characters in both of these series.
