Netflix romantic drama series Virgin River is set in the eponymous fictional idyllic northern California town.

The show, which is based on the series of 24 novels by Robyn Carr, was filmed in picturesque locations across Vancouver.

Alexandra Breckenridge stars as Mel Monroe, a nurse practitioner who moves from Los Angeles up north to Virgin River following the death of her husband.

Hoping to start a new life and escape her past, Mel looks for a fresh purpose, but realises she must confront her own trauma before she can ever more on.

Monroe meets Jack Sheridan after moving to Virgin River and the two eventually begin a romantic relationship, though Mel still struggles with the death of her husband.
