    "summer in sonoma"

    I was impressed by the credentials of the author and the opening 5 minutes of the book. However after 49 minutes of listening to what can only be described as boring to puerile, I could take no more.

    "Not Virgin River But Ok"

    I agree with the other reviewer, this doesn't hold a candle to the Virgin River Series but still a good listen. I don't care for the reader at all. It makes the story very confusing because she uses the same voice for all of the characters and you never know who is talking!! Cute story overall.

    "Good story"

    I liked this book but didn't love it like the Virgin River series. There were just too many characters, too many stories and sometimes it got confusing who was who. The narrator did a great job since she had to have so many voices for all the numerous characters. Maybe it was just me but in the beginning I had a hard time keeping up it gets better about 3/4 way through. Still worth a credit.

    "Robyn does it again!"

    Another GREAT listen by Robyn Carr. Have listened to all the Virgin River books and this one is right up there. Good characters, great visuals in Sonoma and you can just feel the wind in your hair while riding the Harley! First book for reader Kate Turnbull, and has the sweet voice almost, (almost) of Therese Plummer. We need more by Ms. Carr and Ms. Turnbull.

    "Carr yet again writes another enjoyable novel"

    I really enjoyed this book, having listened to many of the Virgin River series, I was not disappointed with Summer In Sonoma. I would recommend to anyone who has listened to other Carr novels.

    If Kate could infuse various voices it would have been even better.

    "This is a HUGE favorite stand-alone title"

    I have read lots of Robyn Carr books, and if you are a fan you will love, love, love this book. It's a stand-alone title, so you don't need to know other books to enjoy this one, so it would be a great first, introductory book to Robyn Carr's style if you don't already know her work.

    It features four women who have been friends for a long time and are the same age, but they've reached that point in adulthood where each is dealing with different issues. Financial pressures, still being single, getting the 7 year itch in a marriage, etc.

    Anyone can find one or more characters in this book to relate to. I found each of the couples to be very interesting, and especially enjoyed the single pair who met right at the beginning of the book. I'm not going to get into spoiler territory, but I was glad that each of the story lines was resolved to some extent by the end of the book. There are certainly unanswered questions, but that's what life is all about.

    I read the book twice prior to purchasing this audio version and I do think that aided in my ability to follow the narration. There is not a significant amount of variation between character voices, which is occasionally confusing to the listener. She is adequate, but I was somewhat disappointed with the quality overall since I was already a big fan of the book.

    It's still a great listen. Enjoy!

    I'm addicted to Audible. A new grandma I am responsible for my grandsons library, which reignited my interest in books.

    "Quaint, nice story, like a good chick flick"
    What did you love best about Summer in Sonoma?

    The range and interaction of and between characters.


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

    No. A good story kept my interest but no real highs or lows.


    Any additional comments?

    The story may have been a bit long. It was pretty obvious midway through the "surprise" that would come with Walt.
