Love the Virgin River series. You become more a part of the community with every book. Ms. Plummer us a stellar narrator!!!! There is no choosing a fave in "Virgin River"... They are all great books!!
Avid reader for 45 years
While I have enjoyed all the books in this series, Wild Man Creek is probably my favorite since Virgin River. To an avid gardener, this story is a dream come true! The main character leaves the cut throat corporate world, starts an organic produce farm in a small town and meets an attractive man. Love all the "town" characters, who elevate these books from sappy love stories to human dramas. Only drawback - some of the sex scenes border on soft porn; detracts from great story line.
I liked them both so it is hard to say which was best.
It was done very well just like all Virgin River Series is always a good read
Made me laugh and not want to put it down...I also cried in parts....All good stuff
Be sure to get this in audio as it is a great story
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
This was such a wonderful listen. Since I don't like books that dwell on the tragedy that sets up the inevitable happy ending, I'd score this one a perfect 10 for giving you enough background to understand where they were coming from, but not so much that it dragged out. The book just kept getting better from there, making me laugh, making me cry and making me fall in love with the characters. Jillian and Collin had wonderful real-life qualities and quirks, and a chemistry that made Robyn Carr's trademark love scenes steam up your glasses. Although I'm not a gardener, I greatly enjoyed hearing about all the intricacies of ... whoops, that would be a spoiler. Let me just say that her research paints a vivid backdrop for the love story. Throw in the other sub-plots with Denny and her sister, and you've got a winner. Can't wait to start the next book in the morning!
Yes, I have listened to other performances of Therese Plummer and I have to say she did a superb job with this book. She totally conveyed the feelings and emotions of all the characters in this book.
The Virgen River series started out really strong but as the book countdown progresses, I am finding harder and harder to remain engaged. It was nice to see some of our old couples. The author did keep the principal romantic plot front and center better than she normally does. However, I found the big corporate exec turning veggie farmer to be somewhat unrealistic. Colin was so unlike his brothers. He was arrogant and just lacked the romantic characteristics that made the other characters stand out. But, I guess there is always a black sheep in every family and Colin definitely fit that perfectly. I am not sure whether or not I will continue reading the rest of this series but I have already committed so much time to it, I probably should just see it thru the end. We will see!
I am a 43 year old mother of 4, I have a great husband and I am a nurse. I love to spend time with my family and ride atv's. Romance and humerous books are my favorite and I am currently listening to a lot of amish romance books.
Enjoyable, interesting and hard to put down!
The whole book is great. You can't go wrong with any book in the Virgin River series.
All of them....all the characters from these books seem like they are part of my family!
A love story you won't soon forget!!!!
I have loved the whole series of Virgin River books so far and always can't wait to listen to more!!!!
Love, dispare and fulfillment.
All (only 6) of the Virgin River Series that I have read have the same story line. Man meets women, one or both have issues but they find love and have bumps along the way. Just enough issues and love to keep you listening.
Yes. She is great!
Mad me laugh, made me cry.
Have read the majority of the Virgin River Series. This particular book held my interest as I am going through a life-changing transition as the result of an accident just like one of the characters. I enjoyed the gardening trend in the story. All the characters are always so likeable. Reading is one of the few interests I can enjoy right now and these books take me away--like the old commercial--"Calgon, take me away". (Showing my age, I know) Now, onto the next one...
I havén't listened to a lot of audios yet, but can say that this book is really enjoyable, and is amongst the top ones have heard so far.
Yes, cannot say why. All I can say is that I looked forward to listening to this audio every night until it was finished.
Yes. It deals with issues that could be considered current issues.
I love all the Virgin River characters but Jack and Mel are my favorites.
Hard to tell. I do love the descriptions of the beauty of the scenery.
No extreme reactions--just lots of touching moments.
This series always makes me realize how wonderful life can be when people work together.
