Informed Risk is an early book by Robyn Carr (Virgin River series). We meet Christine Palmer and her two children on the eve they are rescued by Mike Cavanaugh. Both have histories which as Mike puts it need to be healed.
As with Robyn's books we not only have the wonderful main characters but we meet Mike's large family and Chris' estranged aunt with a mutt named Cheeks. Robyn creates characters that we care about and want to find their HEA.
Definitely have parts that tell the time point to the book being written in the later 80's - use of fireman and not fire fighter and smoking to help calm the nerves of Aunt Flo. These minor things did not detract from the book. I wanted to jump in and become a part of the book, Thanksgiving at the Cavanaughs is wonder.
I will definitely continue my quest to read more of Robyn's backlist while I wait for more books in the Virgin River series.
