Are you a fan of the show? The series follows 30-something Melinda 'Mel' Monroe, played by Alexandra Breckenridge, who answers an ad to work as a nurse in the remote Northern California town of Virgin River, thinking it will be the perfect place to start fresh following a tumultuous few years.

However, she soon discovers that small-town living isn't quite as simple as she expected, and she finds herself in a complicated relationship with local bar owner Martin Henderson's Jack Sheridan. The last time viewers saw her, Mel had discovered that she was pregnant but didn't know who the father was - Jack or her late husband Mark.
