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.

Characters are real. I love seeing a mom who would do anything for her kids.
Therese Plummer has such a pleasing voice you can really get lost in the stories she is reading.
As usual Robyn Carr has written another great book.
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.
Robyn Carr is my favorite!
Nothing at all!
More of Virgin River, please! ;)
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.
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?
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.
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.
I liked the scenes featuring Maxi.
No. I felt like the challenges the protaganistic faced were not authentically represented.
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).
Definitely, it is such a wonderful read, sweet, endearing just never wanted it to end.
Nora, Maxi & Tom! Also the relationship with Nora's new found father & girlfriend.
Therese is amazing, best narrator ever
Please write more I've listened to all the Thunder Point & Virgin River books & now I may just go into a depression without my characters / family. Great Job.
