    Story
    "So boring, I couldn't finish it."

    I usually really enjoy the Virgin River books but I didn't really like Angie. I don't know what it was but it just seemed kind of far fetched that a guy like Patrick would find this college student interesting. I was so bored I couldn't finish the book. I tried to read it twice but kept losing interest.

    Therese Plummer did an excellent job as usual.

    "Fun Story"

    Great characters. Thoroughly enjoyable story, especially at this time of year. I found it difficult to stop listening when I needed to do other things.

    Story
    "Loved it !!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to My Kind of Christmas the most enjoyable?

    Ever since I started listening to this audio I could not stop! I really wanted to know the story, but felt really sad when I realized it was coming to an end. In this story two people who have suffered a traumatic experience in life go to a place to be alone and think about life, and, as expected they fall for each other. But things are not that simple because each one of them has different plans for the near future and all the odds point to the fact that this thing they got themselves into won't last, especially and the family of both of them don't approve.
    The author did a wonderful job by keeping us hooked during the whole story. He doesn't spend pages and pages to actually show something interesting and catching. The whole book keeps you hooked, from the first page to the very last. The narrator did a very good job as well. As I said: I just loved it!

    I enjoy many types of books and am always looking for new authors to read and listen too. I enjoy reading the reviews and adding my own from time to time.

    Story
    "Promise to dead friend almost ruins future love"
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Kind of Christmas to be better than the print version?

    No idea


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Angie was my favorite because she had been through and overcome a horrible accident. She is a very strong character but does not recognize her own strength. Virgin River has many strong people living there and the Sheridan and Riordan familys are both large and full of life. She has to be strong just to survive her own family,


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

    She knows all the characters in this series as she has done most of the books and brings all of them to life so well. She has developed voices for all of them and you can recognize them by their inflection. Does men's and women's voices equally well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but started it late and had to finish it the next morning.

    As a mother of 4 you have a lot of laundry. Audible books made washing a whole lot nicer. Walking isn't as painful either.

    Story
    "What a way to spend some snowy nights!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely, Therese Plummer is masterful at changing her voice to pull inso many characters and with so many people that have developed overthe years in Virgin River you need a great narrator.The story is perfect for a cold winter, a great imagination, a small cabin surrounded by woods, a handsome military man, and an enormous Christmas tree. What more could a girl ask for?


    What other book might you compare My Kind of Christmas to and why?

    Any of the other wonderful Virgin River Christmas stories.


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

    Diversity of the many characters. Each character seems to have their owntraits that instantly identify them in the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me smile often.


    Any additional comments?

    Do yourself a favor and crawl into bed with Virgin River.
    I would have given it a 4.5 if I could.

    "Great Christmas Read! Definitely Credit Worthy!"

    While shopping for good Christmas reads, I happened upon "My Kind of Christmas" by Robyn Carr. I had just finished "Bring Me Home for Christmas" and really enjoyed that book by Robyn Carr as well. I would recommend both!
    They are basically uncomplicated and very romantic. If you are in the mood to listen to a "feel good" book, then both of these will do the trick.
    Therese Plummer does an excellent narration of both books.
    Definitely credit worthy!
    Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

    "Great seasonal story"

    I have listened to this entire series all year. Enjoyed the story and the characters. If you like all the others, then you will enjoy the comfort of this book during the Christmas season especially.

    "Wonderfilled Christmas read ~ Totally enjoyed!"
    Would you listen to My Kind of Christmas again? Why?

    Yes! It was filled with awesome characters, and the whole book was just a feel good read ~ perfect for the holiday season. I loved every second of it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Kind of Christmas?

    Oooh, that'd be telling ~ let me just say it's FILLED with memorable moments. And not just between the hero & heroine. I have so many Robyn Carr books on my Kindle where she's been recommened but I've never gotten around to reading them...I'm now kicking my own butt, and buying other audio and resending those books to myself. Incredible story teller here.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    Angie ~ she might have only been 23, but she's very wise and fun and full of hope and joy and caring ~ while not being a push over for anyone.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Angie is able to come up with the funds for a recovery surgery for reconstruction surgery for a little girl she is trying to help out ~ it's totally moving.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was fabulous, the story was awesome, and the supporting characters have sent me seeking out their books ~ that should tell you how great this book was!

    "A little like last year's christmas story"
    Would you listen to My Kind of Christmas again? Why?

    Yes, the narrator makes this story come to life. I listened to this series while reading the book and it makes the experience better.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Not thrilled. It reminded me to much of what happened between Shelby and Luke. But I was happy that Patrick ended up with a nice and smart woman.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and all her performances are worth listeining to. She is very restful to listen to and brings the kindness of the character to the surface.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, unfortunately I didn't have the need to listen to the story in one sitting. The story sound to much like last year christmas story.


    Any additional comments?

    Although, the story was very similar to others it is still worth buying and adding it to the rest of the series.
