Virgin River

virgin river

When the first season of the romantic drama series Virgin River premiered on Netflix back in December of 2019, it didn’t take long for people to become obsessed with it. The series follows Melinda “Mel” Monroe, who leaves her big city life to start working as a midwife and nurse practitioner in a remote town called Virgin River. While there, she discovers that the simple, small-town life she thought she was going to get is actually anything but simple. There’s plenty of drama, laughs, and love to be had, and it’s impossible to watch only one episode of the show and not want to immediately binge-watch the entire series.
