    New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr continues to charm fans with touching tales of romance in the small town of Virgin River. Redwood Bend finds Katie Malone and her twin boys stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire. Katie is struggling to put on the spare when Dylan Childress and his biker buddies roll up. While the guys work on Katie’s car, Dylan and Katie take a good look at each other - and in that instant, their futures are transformed.

    Story

    Listen to every Virgin River Book in the series. Don't know if I personally am getting tired of them. I agree with another review that they are getting a little predictable and forgettable. I always enjoy the neat career ideas the author comes up with and she goes into enough detail about them. I am getting tired of the explicit sex (irritating) and predictable love story running through them. I laugh and really do enjoy the characters and almost feel like I live there as I have read so many of the books. Maybe I am getting cynical about the sex and love story or I need to take a break. Wonder what others think?

    Andy Carpenter isn't sure what to think when he gets a mysterious phone call from a good friend, policeman Pete Stanton, asking him to drop everything, drive to an unfamiliar address, and bring his girlfriend, Laurie Collins. He certainly isn't expecting to show up at a crime scene. But that's exactly where he arrives - at the house where Pete has just discovered the body of ex-convict Danny Balfour. Upstairs are Danny's now orphaned four-year-old son and basset hound. And that, Andy discovers, is why he and Laurie were called to the scene - Pete wants them to take care of the boy and the dog so they won't get thrown into the "system". This is already asking a lot, but soon Pete needs another big favor from Andy. Pete himself has come under suspicion for Danny's murder, and he needs defense attorney Andy to represent him - and to find out what really happened in Danny's house that day!

    Story

    Love, love, love the Andy Carpenter Series. His humor just cracks me up and I can't get enough of it. I go through withdrawal waiting for the next book to be published. Recently lost my darling dog/member of the family so I didn't know if I could handle the dog references, but found it to be healing not disturbing. I love that he is such a dog lover and if you haven't read his book, Dogtripping, you should. It's a true account not one of his mystery or Andy Carpenter books. I have listened to every single book by David Rosenfelt and I need to add that I also love the narration by Grover Gardner. Keep em coming.

    Boycotted her last few novels as I was disappointed in the same old, same old. Still no resolve with her love interests or job, etc. However, I found I could not live without Lula and Grandma. Their dialogue is so hilarious that I decided to overlook the lame existence of the rest of it. Now I am addicted again and await No. 23.

    Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply - but that almost seems beside the point now. Maybe that was always beside the point. Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her - Neal is always a little upset with Georgie - but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go without her.

    Marie Bostwick weaves the unforgettable story of four very different women whose paths cross, changing their lives forever. It’s a long way from Fort Worth, Texas, to New Bern, Connecticut, yet it only takes a day in the charming Yankee town to make Evelyn Dixon realize she’s found her new home. The abrupt end of her marriage was Evelyn’s wake-up call to get busy chasing her dream of opening a quilt shop. Finding a storefront is easy enough; starting a new life isn’t....

    Good character development. Story is read by the two main characters, switching over every other chapter. You will find yourself rooting for these women and girls. Quilting is one of the main themes in this story, so if you are a quilter you may identify with this story even more.

    At Madeline's Tea Salon, the cozy hub of the Avalon community, local residents scrapbook their memories and make new ones. But across town, other Avalonians are struggling to free themselves of the past: Isabel Kidd is fixing up her ramshackle house while sorting through the complications of her late husband's affair. Ava Catalina is mourning the love of her life and helping her young son grow up without his father. And Frances Latham eagerly anticipates the arrival of a little girl from China - unprepared for the emotional roller coaster of foreign adoption.

    Cute story about women in a scrapbooking club. There are some good relationships as we are introduced to the different characters and see how their lives become enmeshed. I think I am sufficiently motivated now to get my five scrapbooks started and completed. My gathering and sorting is done, but time to compile and give as gifts to my loved ones.

    Enjoy this series, on the third book right now. The favorite part of the book for me is the gardening thread running through it. Like the strong character of the female boss and matriarch. Not real deep reading, but wanted to keep listening until the conclusion.

    From number-one New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr comes the story of four friends determined to find their stride. This honest look at marriage examines the challenges, heartaches, and sacrifices along with the joy in discovering what it means to be a wife, mother, friend, lover - and most important: your true self. Gerri can't decide what's more devastating: learning her rock-solid marriage has big cracks, or the anger she feels as she tries to repair the damage. Always the anchor for friends and her three angst-ridden teenagers, it's time to look carefully at herself.

    Story

    Enjoyed the four different main characters. Each one is facing their own set of problems and you will be absorbed in the journey. Lots of words of wisdom, and good insight into helping these girls deal with their personal problems. Felt like each of these girls were a case history right out of a therapist's patient files. Would continue reading about their lives if Robyn Carr does a series.

    When his sister tricks him into taking her guru on a trip to their childhood home, Otto Ringling, a confirmed skeptic, is not amused. Six days on the road with an enigmatic holy man who answers every question with a riddle is not what he'd planned. But in an effort to westernize his passenger---and amuse himself---he decides to show the monk some "American fun" along the way.

    This book had me with the cover. Knew there would be humor mixed in with some spiritual reflection. The right doses of each of these makes it a success. The author is such a real guy that admits he is skeptical about spiritual things. You will probably see yourself in him and feel like you are taking the journey too. It is very enjoyable and will recommend to others.

    This teetered between a 4 and 5 star book, as it wasn't intense or electrifying as what I would deem as criteria for a 5. However; it was a sentimental, heartfelt story for us dog lovers. Shorter story, not a run-on story with a lot of filler, The author did a wonderful job with the voices. If you like dogs and Christmas and want a nice break from your traditional genre, it was very nice. It was the $1.95 Xmas special price too, so can't go wrong with that. Thank you audible for offering this to us listeners.
