    "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.

    "Good friendship is key to happiness!"

    Book was great with good balance among the girls. Easy to keep them straight, but story lines wove together well.

    "Friends Forever..."

    This is a good story but not a great story. What was good? The friendship between the women was solid. They were there for each other. The challenges they each faced were different and interesting. I liked most of the male characters. What was ok? There were plot points that were a little too pat. I would not call the a complex plot. In the end it was sn easy listen. Probably a 1 listen book.
