Server Outage
Yesterday morning we experienced a webmaster’s worst nightmare – a server outage. The outage was unplanned and we didn’t know about it until we tried to access the site. At that point, our only means to contact you were via our Facebook page and Twitter.
While we hope that it never happens again, you can follow us via Facebook or Twitter or subscribe to the daily e-mail to keep up on the site. Thanks to the tech guys who resolved the problem and got us back up and running.
Virgin River Series Pre-Order
As promised, I’m telling you about the next installment in the Virgin River series by Robyn Carr. The pre-order price for Hidden Summit is $4.89 and will deliver on December 27. The next book (Redwood Bend) is scheduled for February release and the third book this year (Sunrise Point) will release in April.
Sick of running into her cheery ex-husband and his new wife, Leslie Petruso accepts a job at the Virgin River branch of Haggerty Construction and takes the high road right out of town. Now she’s got Paul Haggerty’s business running like a well-oiled machine. In fact, things are so busy Paul jumps at the chance to hire an extra set of hands.
Just like Leslie, Conner Danson has been burned by love. But if Leslie was disappointed by her relationship going bad, Conner was decimated. He’s got no time for women…although he spends an awful lot of time pretending not to notice Leslie. And she’s pretty busy “ignoring” the chemistry between them.
According to Conner and Leslie, they have only one thing in common—they’re done with love. But everyone in Virgin River can see that things are heating up at Haggerty Construction. And as far as Paul Haggerty can tell, the best thing he can do is hang on to his hard hat and watch the sparks fly! Pre-order today for $4.89.
