Second book in the Virgin River Series and even better than the first. I so wanted to know more about Mel and Jack, and what happened to Liz and Rick and of course Preacher! And its all there is this second book! Once more narrator Therese Plummer brings the charactures alive! I really enjoy listening to her read a book!
Countin the days till i can purchase no 3!!!!
Too many "he said, she said." Short sentence structures and shallow content. Some good information on abuse.
Used to read classic lit for pleasure of well-written prose. Now, with MS, it's thrillers, courtroom/police dramas, and adventure to escape!
Robyn Carr seems to have developed her writing skills in this novel, and I must say it was okay. Not great, just okay, but better than Virgin River. Again the character development is lacking, but improved, the storyline is shallow, but has it's moments. I won't be reading any more from Robyn Carr, but if you like gooey Romance novels you will probably enjoy the Virgin River series.
I enjoyed Shelter Mountain. The topic of domestic abuse is handled very well by Carr here. And the love story between Faith and Preacher evolved slowly, sweetly. And we get to hear more about characters from book 1 as well as get introduced to a new character. And this is why I only gave the book 3 stars. While I do enjoy the feeling of community you get when reading a Robyn Carr novel, I thought she tackled a bit too much in book 2. I would have preferred the book to focus mostly on Faith and Preacher. But I don't want to undersell this book. This is a sweet, feel good love story.
I love how she fully develops the characters, and it's not just about two people, but it's about families and communities with their real life struggles and triumphs.
She has very quickly become a favorite author, and this a favorite series!
Someone who enjoys easy reading with little plot.
Probably the birth scene because something was actually happening.
I would have told Robyn that flawless characters make boring characters. The most perfect male protagonist must STILL have some flaws! Otherwise the story is unrealistic and cringe worthy. Some of the conversations between the men were ridiculous. Men don't talk like that.
If you want to read an action packed, interesting love story try Outlander or The Bronze Horseman. Or the Into the Wilderness series.
Am really enjoying this series. Have been brought to tears a few times. The characters are so real and the narrator brings out the best in the stories! Looking forward to the next in the series.
This is such a good book! I couldn't stop listening. Suspense, such love, great friendships and so funny at times. My husband kept laughing at me as I listened to this book laughing out loud with constant smile on my face. Great author and great book. Narration was wonderful. Thanks
