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!
This installment of the Virgin River series features two new residents of the town. Both of which came to Virgin River to escape past events in their lives. Conner who was an eye witness to a murder and Leslie who is trying to get away from her cheating ex and his new very pregnant wife.

The two of them find love when they were only looking for something casual. Even with them saying that, you could tell as the reader that they both had already started to develop feelings for one another.

As usual, Carr paints a beautiful picture of the town and the supporting cast of characters. We were also introduced to the female lead of the next installment, and re-introduced to the one for installment after that.

Hidden Summit also brought a little suspense along with the romance. Conner and Leslie had a nice, stable romance, which is good considering both of their ex-spouses were cheaters. But on the other hand it was a little too good, almost perfect, which is never the case in reality.

I enjoyed this installment and I loved catching up with the town residents. Although I enjoyed Conner and Leslie’s romance, I didn’t feel all that invested in or connected to them as I did with previous romances such as Colin and Jillian or Kelly and Lief.
