Katie Malone and her twin boys' trip along the beautiful mountain roads to Virgin River is stopped short by a tire as flat as her failed romance. To make matters worse, the rain has set in, the boys are hungry and Katie is having trouble putting on a spare. As she stands at the side of the road pondering her next move, she hears a distinct rumble. The sight of the sexy, leather-clad bikers who pull up beside her puts her imagination into overdrive.

Dylan Childress and his buddies are on the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. But the sight of a woman in distress stops them in their tracks. And while the guys are checking out her car, she and Dylan are checking out one another.

In one brief moment, the world tilts on its axis and any previous plans Katie and Dylan might have had for their futures are left at the side of the road.
Redwood Bend centers on Katie, the sister of Conner from Hidden Summit. I enjoyed the bits and pieces of Katie I glimpsed in the previous book and enjoyed her even more in her own. She meets Dylan within the first couple of chapters upon her arrival in Virgin River. When he helps her with her flat tire, she recognizes him as the teen idol she was in love with during her teenage years, but doesn’t let on that she does.

I truly liked both Dylan and Katie. She’s funny and very capable of taking care of herself, which is always refreshing to see in a female character. She does sometimes seek the assistance of her brother when it comes to her twin boys, because they lack a father figure in their lives. This is understandable since she lost her husband in war. Dylan on the other hand has major issues when it comes to commitment and family. Growing up in a dysfunctional Hollywood family left him with a few emotional scars.

As always, I enjoyed visiting with the residents of Virgin River. I just love this little town and its inhabitants. I just wish more of the Riordan brothers had found their way into Redwood Bend.

And in this installment, Katie and Dylan don’t make their name in Virgin River which is always sad to me when the couples don’t settle there and live happily ever after.

How's the story telling quality? How would you rate it in a scale of 1 to 5 butterflies?
