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.
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.
No, I would consider it equal to the book itself Both are equally impressive.
I like that all of the books in this series stand alone and are a great read. When you add them to the whole series, it only adds to the enjoyment.
This story had me in tears and laughing all in one. I was so happy to finally see Preacher fall in love. The romance between them was so sweet and touching. I loved the way he protected her along with the rest of the town. You will be hooked with this one too.
I will listen to the entire Virgin River Series. Can't wait for the next one.
This story did handle the issue of domestic abuse very well. I felt sorry for Paige, the woman who was running from her husband.
I really liked John “Preacher” and the way that he connected with her 3 year old son.
I also liked the characters Mel and Jack.
It’s definitely a beach read . . . not complicated, romance, and with a happy ending.
All the characters are wonderfully alive in this #2 Virgin River series. Robyn's sense of a fair-minded woman reminds me of the type of woman I should be and how I should respond when tough situations find their way into my life. The characters' comical dialogues and inward thoughts that make me laugh out loud. While there are a few predictable outcomes woven into the story line,it doesn't detract from the fun of the novel.
To the author: Robyn, I can get around the mild profanity you insert in your stories, which really isn't necessary, but I wish you would cool it on taking the Lord's name in vain. That is not cool and doesn't add value to the story. Would you please consider that?
After my third Robyn Carr novel it seemed that I was listening to the sane story over and over, Man meets woman, they fall head in heels in love, marry and live happily ever after. Next generation and different names, same story. I was so looking forward to listening to all of her books too. Now I'm just disappointed.
Believer in what you can't see
How the big tough Preacher (nickname) is a big, cuddly teddy bear, but when needed he is the big bad bear too.
When Paige starts to fall in love with Preacher and he doesn't know what to do. He has never had a relationship so he is a little awkward, but so sweet.
I like everything about Therese Plummer's performance. she really made Virgin River a place of love and joining.
Safety is in the least likely place.
This is a very enjoyable series. Very contemporary, everyone has their challenges and everyone finds love. It unfortunately that the series has ended.
I love all of her books, and this one, not surprisingly, did not disappoint. Her characters are real and become friends I don't want to loose touch with.
