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.
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.
Yes! Anything Robyn Carr writes just sucks you in...you totally get caught up in the small town world with multiple characters. Loved it!
Cooper but also Mac. Cooper learns a lot about himself. Mac is so dang oblivious!
Allow the swirl of the wind, water and wonder of of love in a small town to sweep you away.
I can hardly wait for more. Jumping off from Virgin River series into a new series with new characters, and a new environment. But same great stories, and Therese Plummer does a great job narrating as usual.
Sweet, real, entertaining
Listening to Therese Plummer read Robyn Carr's contemporary novels is like sitting down to a meal that is complete with one's favorite dishes, but made with unexpected spices -- still good, but not always exactly the same.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the audio Virgin River series and the Grace Valley trilogy. Robyn Carr has clearly found her niche. I feel good about her characters and stories. They're all nice folks who are likeable (except any bad guys) and one can relate.
Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer go together like peanut butter & jelly.
the location and the characters
When the women in Mac's life tell him how clueless he is when it comes to women was a hoot.
Life, Love and Friendship in a small town
This was a fun light book after reading/listening to several intense thrillers. The writing is great and characters were likeable. There is a small mystery but mostly this is a cozy read about friendship, love and a small town. After an old Army buddy dies Cooper goes to pay his respects to his friend at his home on the Oregon coast and finds more than he ever expected. I will have to read the next book in the series when it comes out later this year.
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 love great dialog that's well read by the narrator. I couldn't even finish the book. Granted I just listen to Louise Penny's Nature of the Beast - so my standards are pretty high - but this was just boring and badly read.
I'm looking forward to Laurie R. King's "The Death of Mary Russell".
Therese probably did the best she could with what she was given.
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.
