Now a Netflix original series, Virgin River is in the vein of Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove. Mel Monroe is a big-time nurse practitioner from L.A. who is looking to escape her harried past. She finds herself in small-town Virgin River working with the town doctor who is nearing retirement. She realizes her mistake in moving early on, and would have left long ago if it weren’t for an abandoned newborn on the front steps of the clinic, and friendly face Jack Sheridan who is proving a valuable friend – and maybe more – to Mel.
