The setting and solid characters.
Preacher. A strong man who is a great cook.
Virgin River, the name speaks for itself......
Yes, I would recommend it to women my age and to women who love the old romance formula of city woman meets hunky mountain man.
The big love encounter.
When Melinda Monroe reveals an important element about her past.
The story is somewhat predictable, but, it is enjoyable. The predictability does not deminish the overall story. It is a good listen while you drive story and it does have an element of wanting to know what happens next.
yes......It was a good feel good book.
the main character's recovery and her relationship with Jack. Many women that I know would like to meet a Jack
I will read (listen) other books by this aurthor
Light, easy listen
Yes, I would listen to another one of her stories. The characters were strong and she conveys emotion rather well. The story, being a romance, is a bit predictable - but, the medical scenes were vivid and accurately written and that helped to add a nice layer of interest to the story.
The main character was my favorite - I'm a nurse, too and I thought her emotions and motivations were true to life.
I just liked the overall idea of an LA nurse going to work in a small town. Who among us hasn't thought about living a more simple life?
Credit-worthy - makes a nice little backdrop while working at the computer or making dinner.
I'm such a fan of Jan Karon and John McDonnough's reading of the Mitford series. I was looking for another interesting series to start listening to and this novel fit the bill. The characters are interesting and the story thought-provoking. The performance by Therese Plummer is excellent - a female John McDonnough! I''ve already bought the second in the series and can't wait to settle down with my knitting and another tale of the fictional location of Virgin River.
I listened to the entire book of Virgin River in two days!
I was drawn in by the storyline of a recent widow looking for a change. I enjoyed the story and her new life that came full circle. It was a bit steamy in section, which was welcome and I found I became more interested as the book went along.
Having enjoyed Virgin River, I picked up a second from this series [Promise Canyon] and found, while the plot was different, it had the making of 'the same book'... girl looking to build her life, boy becomes attracted, girl denys and pushes away, boy persists, girl gives in, finds love, finds life, etc, etc....I think I've uncovered the formula of this series.
Yes I would recomend to a friend, it's a very interesting story and easy to follow and hard to put down.
Absolutelty love this series! Robin Carr is one of my new favorites! Narration from Therese Plummer is amazing. She makes the stories come alive, and keeps you in the book. You'll love it!
I have listened to so many audible books over the years, starting with books on tapes, CDs and now my membershipship with audible, that I would say it was close to a "10". It was a light read. I usually like to listen to a light read after listening to a heavy, intense read, and this fit the bill. .
When Mel arrived in Virgin River and absolutely every thing went wrong that could go wrong.
No..I liked the narrator.
I like to listen while I so other things. In the car, gardening etc.
Wasn't sure I would like it since I had never heard of the series, but I am now glad I bought it.
I have bought two more in the series.
