Not time well spent. The book while not bad was definitely slow. It felt more like an introduction to the town and the individuals rather than the "romance" it claims in the description. In fact, the two protagonists do not meet until well into the book. Also, the mysterious death being investigated felt like it was an afterthought, written by someone not used to writing the details of a mystery or suspense.
I had difficulty discerning the different male characters. If I skipped ahead 30 seconds (which I admit to doing upon occasion) I would be lost in determining the male character(s) in the scene since everyone from the 16 yr old boy to the 37 yr old man sounded the same.
I read a later book in this series before listening to this book, it's what made me want to read this book. However, it was a disappointment. I would read additional books from this author/series, just not listen to it.
This is typical Robyn Carr. There is much more build on daily life and surrounding friendships than there is just on the romance. I look forward to the rest of the series.
Although predictable - it was a pretty good read until the last couple of chapters which turned into explicit sex. Although, enjoy a good love story - the explicitness of the sexual encounters was just not in line with the rest of the story - I think more needed to be left to the imagination - otherwise enjoyable on the road read - Just don't have any kids within ear shot when listening the last couple chapters!
I love these books!! They have everything, romance (with some very sexy parts), humor and everyday life drama I could Identify with. I ran out of credits on the 3rd book and have to wait a month to get more. It's been a long time since I've wanted time to speed by for a book LOL. I think these books are good for young adults. some high school bulling, young love situations that are very common now days ( I say young adults because of the sexy parts ). I will be listening to all the books by this author, the narrator is fantastic, I'm so happy I found them.
It was an interesting listen. I enjoyed the characters and their relationships. It's a small town of Thunder Point, simple life but not without problems. There's sheriff Mac who takes care of the town and a husband whose wife left him with children early in their marriage. He raises his children. There are many people with relationships that will keep your interest. This is a series book.
I loved the small town and how everyone knew everything about everyone and how lives intertwined.
When Aunt Lou decided to tell about her boyfriend and it was not a surprise to Mac and how she introduces him into family. She has a great role as Aunt to Mac and his children who live with him. She is funny yet has great wisdom.
Back to real life in a small town! Remember when!
If you want to go back to small town living this is close to the real life of long ago and yet keeps one's interest. Great read.
The story isn't as much about a single person falling in love as it is about an entire town and all the little twists and turns that happen in their lives.
I'm not quite sure why someone classified this book in the romance genre but whoever did it, couldn't have been more wrong. This wanderer guy the title hints that the story about is in maybe 1 hour of the 8 hour story. Yes he falls in love, but considering that's only a tiny part of the whole story, it make no sense why they even called the book that.
What I loved most about this book was that it is so real and could actually happen in an everyday situation. It was awesome!! I can't wait to dive into the rest of the series!
When Mac & Gina finally come together and the final scene with Cooper and Sarah.
They are all good!
Rayann makes me LAUGH as I can so picture her clear as day.
I got into listening to audio books while traveling and now have found them a source of comfort day & night! Robyn Carr is my Fav
I got hooked when I started with book #4 and didn't realize there was a series. As soon as I realized it, I was hooked already with the lives of those that I was hearing about in the novel. I listened to book number 1 and can not wait to listen to 2 and 3 or listen to them. I travel and I get so lost in the lives of these genuine folks that I really feel like they exist. It makes me want to travel to Oregon and visit.
I would have to say that in this story Cooper was my favorite character and then Gina, I loved how genuine they both were and how they both never swayed from who they were and how devoted they were in so many different ways!
your able to get their personality right away without having to read pages and not knowing if they are real or shady
Standup people always finish first
Robyn Carr usual simple but easy listening read.
Love her narration but she sounded just like the Virgin River characters and I had to stop and seperate them out in my mind. Still enjoy her characters.
