    "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.

    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.

    Story
    "Good, but not great"
    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Kate Turnbull?

    Maybe. The Narration was good, so I would listen to the narrator again.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting is Everyone lived happily ever after and the least is everyone lives happily ever after. I kept thinking to myself- Men aren't really like this! This is a FICTIONAL story. So- if you want to escape into a fantasy land- this is a great story. It just so happens when I was listening to this book that's what I wanted... Now that I'm reviewing it- it's not were I am mentally.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes. The narrator did fine.


    Do you think Summer in Sonoma needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. I can surmise how everything ends by how the story ended.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to numerous chick-lit. This is a chick- fantasy. Please know I enjoyed this enough to listen later, but its like a rich chocolatey cake with double chocolate frosting topped with whip cream- its good, but too much is just sickening.
