Publisher's Summary

RITA Award winner Robyn Carr is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author. In this 19th installment of her Virgin River series, Tom Cavanaugh returns home to take over his family’s apple orchard and settle down. Single mom Nora Crane is nothing like the kind of woman he thought he’d fall for—yet he can’t take his eyes off her. And while they have different concepts about family, they soon find out how quickly those ideas can change.

    "Another great one!"
    What did you love best about Sunrise Point?

    Characters are real. I love seeing a mom who would do anything for her kids.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    Therese Plummer has such a pleasing voice you can really get lost in the stories she is reading.

    "Does anyone have directions to Virgin River?"
    What did you love best about Sunrise Point?

    As usual Robyn Carr has written another great book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of the characters are my favorite! I have listened to as many books as possible from Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. Can't wait for the next one. Each character in the books are like old friends and then comes a new one. Therese Plummer, what can I say, you are the voice of Virgin River! Wonderfully done.


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

    Robyn Carr is my favorite!


    If you could rename Sunrise Point, what would you call it?

    Nothing at all!


    Any additional comments?

    More of Virgin River, please! ;)

    "Comfort Food and Comfort Books"

    We all have comfort foods. Foods the evoke a happy time, a feeling of peace. Foods that soothe. Usually these are foods we first ate as a child. Comfort foods, while usually caloric, are not a synonym for bland. One of mine, a green chili (New Mexico's Hatch) chicken burrito, enchilada style, is certainly not.

    So too I find with my books. I read a lot but very rarely want to return to a book, no matter how wonderful it was, how cheering or insightful or meaningful. A select few books merit rereading. Paddle to the Sea and Charlotte's Web are two from my childhood; I recently tried to reread Robinson Crusoe and it didn't stand up to my memory. The Hobbit and Citizen of the Galaxy from my YA period; Sandra Dallas' Prayers for Sale and David Weber's The Honor of the Queen are two modern books I've reread and may still be rereading in a dozen years.

    Sunrise Point is the first recorded book that may become a comfort book. I came back to it yesterday after a gamble on a new-to-me author's book which sounded intriguing failed. Plus, I'd had a bad day at work.

    Sunrise Point is not too sweet, not too much penuche. The several characters are given lots of (not at all boring or slow) time to develop, their backstories are well shown and there are enough emotional Alps, Grand Canyons and loop de loops lo to satisfy.

    Plus, in appropriate books, I like to learn something real along the way. Here, it is running an orchard.

    All of the above comfort books are ones I've had to repurchase several times over the years, or enjoyed in different formats, such as a movie or on audio. I have little doubt that when (not if) Audible or my digital device fail to cough it up, I will willing purchase Sunrise Point again. Whether it will be as satisfying in another format - that is, without Therese Plummer's narration - I don't know.

    Jon MontanaVega

    PS My disclaimer: I bought the book; I wasn't asked to review it. I won't benefit in any way by its success or failure. I'm writing for the pleasure of passing along a tip about a listen I enjoyed.

    Story
    "Sorry to see this series end"

    I listened to all 17 Virgin River books. I know they are predictable stories, but they are fun to listen too. Just enough romance, a little excitement here and there and a few laughs.
    These are lightweights and easy to listen too. Sometimes that's just what I need. This story with Nora and Tom's beginning their relationship in Tom's Apple Orchard is really a good story. Lots of romance and laughs. Robyn Carr's Thunder Point series was just as good as this one and now onto Grace Valley. I think I'll miss Therese Plummer's narration most when I finish all of Robyn's books. She is fantastic.

    "Good read"

    I enjoyed the story of Nora and Tom. The side story of Coop I couldn't figure out the point . I feel there was no reason for Coop to be a part if the book.. I though Nora and Coop would cross paths or something? Coop's ending left you looking for more?

    Story
    "As Shallow as Darla"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The ending seemed quite abrupt and overly simplified. Also, the characters had potential, but they were often flat and any interesting parts of their personalities seemed skimmed over.


    What was most disappointing about Robyn Carr’s story?

    The storyline was a bit complicated, but because Carr didn't go into any depth it lacked richness. I was drawn to the plot because it wasn't a typical love story, but all the aspects that made this story unique were easily boxed up and moved out of the way. For example, she was living in a house that was being foreclosed on and boom, she got married and that was the end of the little problem.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scenes featuring Maxi.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. I felt like the challenges the protaganistic faced were not authentically represented.

    Story
    "Entertaining, great narration - trigger warning:"

    I did enjoy this book. The storyline was compelling and the characters were well drawn and likable. Therese Plummer is a very good narrator. She has moments of brilliance that floor me. But there are a few things which could ruin a story for some people, and were a bit sour for me. Spoilers here, I will keep to a minimum:






















    A bear is shot and killed, and it was kind of a super gratuitous plot point. It was really sad but weirdly unacknowledged. (I'm enjoying that this is a literal trigger warning).
    Hero spends a lot of time kissing another woman. (Hate this)
    Subplot that went right over my head. I finally started playing these parts at double speed. (Yes I know it's just a bad thing and not a trigger warning).
