    Best-selling author Robyn Carr pens a captivating tale from her Virgin River series in Paradise Valley. Rick Scudder joined the Marine Corps with high hopes, but left with a broken spirit and a shattered body. Pushing away everyone close to him, he forsakes the help of his surrogate father Jack and his longtime girlfriend Liz. Now Rick must find the strength to let Liz, who’s never given up on him, back into his heart.

    What did you love best about Paradise Valley?

    I have a son who suffers from PTSD, and TBI....it is not fun or easy to understand. Robyn hit the nail on the head. It brought this issue to light in Virgin River.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Paradise Valley?

    The personality change in someone who suffers PTSD and TBI. They become a different person. Someone you don't know.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    The role of the former weed grower (sorry right now I can't remember his name). He was honest about his past....and all of that came together for the reader. How he useds his disability help Rick realize how life can go on


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me cry...as a family member of one who suffers from PTSD....it took me through the pain again.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful book...as is all of her Virgin River books

    Would you consider the audio edition of Temptation Ridge to be better than the print version?

    I am dyslexic and so audio books are always better for me. But, the reader does so well with her characters...I can see them in my mind!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the General...maybe because he is more my age


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    So good with her character set ups....she just takes you there

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    Voice..I am dyslexic and it is hard for me to sit down and read for a long period of time

    Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy....

    Any of the J.D. Robb "death" series.

    Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

    If you could sum up Explosive Eighteen in three words, what would they be?

    I love Stephanie Plum and her life. However, Lula is my favorite and she once again kept me laughing. I am disappointed in the end..I think it is time Stephanie makes a decision and finds out what color the stick is!


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is great to listen to, and familiar. The characters would not be the same without her voice
