"Realistic romance and tough topics....make this a fine read." (Booklist)
Susan Elizabeth Phillips is my go to for fun. Harry Potter - just because. Loved the Magic of Tidying Up and Shakespeare
Top 25% - I have listened to over 500
Yes. She keeps getting better. Keep listening. She mas more surprising performances.
Bree's Dad. Close to my age
It's okay-ish. At some point the books become a little too predictable, which I guess is a plus for some, but I find it a little irritating. Maybe a little too saccharine and formulaic.
The sex scenes are embarrassingly bad -- and I find it weird that all the men so far use the same term of endearment -- "baby." Euw.
They've been pleasant easy summer reads, but I'm ready to move on now.
So far, all the women are small and the characteristics the men most respond to seem to be the smallness of each woman (her small tongue, her small hands, her small waist). C'mon. Can't they have other attractive qualities besides "small"?
I don't know that I'll continue any more in the series, but I'd like to see a larger woman find some love among the ex-Marines of Virgin River. Maybe it happens later, but I probably won't know
I dunno. At some point all the male characters and all the female characters seem the same. I guess I like the Mel/Paige/Brie character. Therese Plummer did a good job, it's just that the characters all seemed alike.
Sure. It was fun.
I am really enjoying this Virgin River series. Each book build on the previous story, introducing you to new characters, new situations, continues with storyline from and included individuals from the previous books. It appears there are 18 + books in this series. The other draw to these books is the narrator; Theresa Plummer does an excellent job. I definitely will be picking up more of this series.
Enjoyed the story about Mike and Bree but Mel really works a nerve! I would have enjoyed more stories about the Riordan boys ... I KNOW they haven't been introduced yet but I've finished the WHOLE series and felt more information about Sean/Franci and Collin/Jilly would make for GREAT stories!
Yes, I would I love the way she writes about the service men in her stories.
I can't pick one but I would say Tom Booth
Mike telling Tom about Matt's death over seas
this story made my cry a few times
this story shows you that no matter what has happened to you in your life if you have the love of family and friends you can get through anything and become a stronger more balance person.
Former Waitress, Chargeback clerk, Clown, Florist owner, Clergy. Love series, humor, twists, history, mysteries, not into witches/bondage.
Enjoyed listening to this book there was a lot of subplots and plots of people we knew and new people introduced you caught up on all the characters and it was a lot of fun there were times when I was hard to hear but that is life as more accurately portrayed.
I enjoy the characters that Robyn Carr creates in the series. It was a nice read, not too complicated but just plain enjoyable. It is a lot about the town of Virgin River in California, which is interesting to learn about.
I am sure I will continue the series at some point. By the way, the narrator Therese Plummer, does a great job in reading this series.
Believer in what you can't see
That Mike and Brie find each other. They both help each other through hard lessons and become each others backbone until they can get back on their feet again.
The only other story that made me as uncomfortable as this story was "Lover Awakened," by J.R. Ward. The experience of Zadist with the mistress is one of the hardest scene I have ever read. Really, really disturbing.
Yes, Plummer's performance makes Virgin River series, feel real and a place you would want to visit.
When Brie's ex-husband wants her back after leaving her for another woman, and she tells him to leave.
Reading allows me to travel through time; to visit the world's unique and stunning places. To become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
The combination of Ms Carr and Ms Plummer works. Ms Plummer does an extraordinary job portraying these characters. It feels real as you listen and her style allows the listener to sink right into the story.
I enjoyed the parts of this book that explored pain, fear and grief. It was still a romance novel and I am sure Ms Carr's fans will enjoy the story as much as any other. But what I liked best was not the romance. It was the exploration of healing. We all encounter tragedy and sometimes even violence in one of its forms. I enjoyed seeing the characters react, then take time to heal. I found it believable that these characters would love one another because the author took more time to develop the friendship.
