Just Over the Mountain is Book 2 in Robyn Carr’s Grace Valley trilogy. In this continuation of Deep in the Valley, we see more of the original characters and find them in new and challenging positions.

Dr. June Hudson finds herself falling for DEA agent Jim Post whose visits are sporadic and clandestine, yet passionate. At the same time she fends off advances from former beau Chris who has returned to Grace Valley with two wayward teenage sons. Her nurse Charlotte has a heart attack and is forced to give up her job with Dr. Stone’s ex-nurse wife Susan stepping in against the wishes of her husband. Receptionist Jessie decides she wants to be a doctor and strives to obtain her GED, and Justine is found not to be pregnant but to have ovarian cancer.

The Mulls are persuaded to move in to town: Clarence can be treated with drugs for his post-traumatic stress disorder, and plastic surgery can repair Jurea’s damaged face. Their children start school and begin to thrive, but the transformation seems too much for Clarence who retreats to their shack in the woods.

Meanwhile, a warrant is brought to June’s aunt; it is suspected that her husband who disappeared twenty years earlier might be buried beneath a rhododendron. And between Jim’s occasional nocturnal visits, love blooms, but June is unsure how compatible they might be if they ever get to be together for any length of time.

A near fatal accident brings two old friends together; a tragedy heals old differences and June discovers she’s got some ‘splainin’ to do.

All ends well for the main characters but room is left to solve other problems in Book three which I am eager to begin.
