I really wanted to love this book, and I eagerly anticipated it. But, for me, it fell a little short. I felt like I didn't have enough time to get to get to know the main characters as a couple. There was a lot of info on the town in general, and the folks in it, which I love, but I didn't feel invested in the couple.
The plot was excellent, and kept me interested, won't say too much there as it will spoil the story.. I am looking forward to the next book, and hope there is a little more of the deputy sheriff and Gina together and how they bring their families together.
I was hoping this would be more in the line of her original Virgin River series, I really felt Jack and Mel, I was so engrossed. This wasn't as good, and that is a shame for a series opener. Having said all that, i would definitely buy more of Carr's books.
Lastly Therese Plummer was again outstanding, she is one of the best narrators I have had the pleasure of listening to.
I was so looking forward to this new Robin Carr series however, I was sadly disappointed. The characters were boring, the story was slow paced and the romance was lackluster.
Yes. WanttobecsurebI did not miss sword.
All robin Carr books. She grabs your attention
Inflection gives life to characters
Yes, but not possible.
Attention is paid to current concerns. Not just romantic fluff but substance.
Charming, picturesque, enjoyable.
Speed it up.
It left me with a cozy feeling, a smile of my face and a desire to read the next two in the series.
The story has a slow start before any romance gets started. There are four romances in this story of a variety of ages. As in the Virgin River series, the introduction of a character in this book is a teaser for upcoming sequels.
This is the first one. She was quite entertaining.
Most definitely. I only listen to books driving to and from work and I found myself wanting to listen to this one while I was in the house.
Now this was a different story than the Virgin River series but a great story that I have listened to several times. A good love story and all the characters are great. I would recommend this book to all my friends.
I love listening to Therese Plummer. She makes you believe each character is a real person.
The love story between the four main characters was terrific.
The combination of Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer is just magical. My only complaint is that there aren't enough books. I've run out. Robyn Carr writes light and interesting. I can't stop listening. Therese Plummer is the most talented narrator I've heard. She amazes me the way she switches voices, and she's so much fun to listen to. I'm just waiting for the next book. Oh - one more thing. I thought at first that it was going to be predictable, but it wasn't. That was a very pleasant surprise. I don't want to give away the plot. Loved this book.
I read so I can write
I am really disappointed. I loved the Virgin Series and was excited about this book. It has been on my Iphone for over a month and I have tried at least 5 times to listen to it enough to get into it.
I just couldn't do it. The story and the characters bored me to tears. Even Therese Plummer couldn't warm it up enough for me to want to finish it.
It is rare for me to dump a book without finishing it. I'm afraid this one joined that limited collection.
Yes, i enjoyed the story.
When the end was not the forever after finish of alot of books but the acceptance of life as it can be.
I enjoyed them all
Oh how I love Robyn Carr.
Her characters are immediately loveable and relatable. Her books are as good as a big hug from a life-size cuddly toy. Every time I read one of her stories I want to go and live in the town and be amongst people I've gotten to know so well.
Many thanks for the excellent narration of Therese Plummer as she knows how to bring a story to life.
