Best-selling author Robyn Carr has earned a devoted following for her inspirational tales of love and redemption set in the near-magical confines of Virgin River.
Lilly Yazhi knows all she needs to know about Clay Tahoma. Sure, he’s got a certain appeal befitting his Navajo roots, but she’s not falling for Clay’s silent, “earthy” attractiveness. She certainly won't make the same mistake as Clay’s ex-wife. Only trouble is, her heart and mind have committed to different resolves....

For anyone who enjoys romance series, this one is for you. Although some of the scenes are a bit over the top (speaking of the series in general and not this book in particular), these books are a pleasant read without anything to graphic. They give you the view of people in a small community that work as friends and neighbors. With men who are all any woman would want (okay, it is a little unrealistic to have so many handsome, caring men who idolize their woman) it makes you want to pack a suitcase and head out to Virgin River and Jack's Bar. I'd advise getting all the books in the series and starting at the beginning. You can listen to these as stand alones but you get a more in depth feeling fot the characters when you learn about them from the start and how they interact with each other.
I listen to this series over and over and can't wait for the next book to come out.
Listen on people!
Robyn Carr strikes again! Loved it, well done Ms. Carr.
Pulls you in right from the beginning & interested until the end. You will not want to stop listening once you've started. Enjoy!
More Carr please Audible!
Day dreaming book lover!
Sometimes it is difficult to let characters go after reading books. I so love series books because the stories continue and the characters lives grow just like in life. Robyn Carr's books are the best of all worlds. The characters grow and develop and Virgin River is place I'd like to live.
Nice story. The heroine was a bit unrealistic in some of her thinking but the other characters more than make up for her shortcomings. Love this series!
A bit of a departure from other's in the series but enough connection with previously introduced characters to be enjoyed as part of the Virgin River series.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
This is another good addition to the Virgin River series. You can always count on Robyn Carr to give an interesting story about the different people of the town, a great love story and a beautiful ending. And that combined with the best narrator ever, Ms. Therese Plummer, means you cannot go wrong and it is always a credit well spent.
Promise Canyon features two new "fall in love" characters Lily and Clay. The book also brings in Native Amercian tradition and culture. And there are horses! RC always has an emotional struggle in her books and this does not disappoint...baggage from the past, pain and disappointment something anyone can relate too. Not as "deep" as other stories but on target. The situations usually work out with a prescribed effort. Previous characters are brought into the story and something very sad happens but in The Virgin River way the town folk come together and heal. New characters are introduced that hopefully lead up to more books...especially "on the search for his birth father" Denny. It is a fantasy community and so nice to visit....and I appreciate happy endings.
I really like this author's books. They have good, strong characters and I like the town she has created in her Virgin Rive Series. It's a place I look forward to visiting every time she writes a new novel! This story has depth and heat, and I am looking forward to her Feb. release! Therese Plummer is an excellent narrator for this series and I have come to expect her as Robyn Carr's narrator of choice.
I listen to audiobooks when I drive and when I hike.
Book 11 "Wild Man Creek" includes references to things that would have occurred previously in Promise Canyon. I think "Promise Canyon" is supposed to be Book 11 and "Wild Man Creek" is supposed to be Book 12. This book was enjoyable, but not as good as others in the series (I've read through Book 12).
I really enjoy Carr's Virgin River series. I'd love to go live there if it really existed! I feel like the characters throughout the series are friends of mine now. So I was really looking forward to a book that also had horses, as that's a big love of mine. I enjoyed this book for it's exploration of the relationship between the people and the horses, and for the cultural complexity of the Native American characters.
The complete downer for me was the narrator. Her cadence and inflection were not fluid or natural. She tended to have slight pauses where there shouldn't be any, And for me the biggest detractor is when either a narrator or writer states something inaccurately. In this case, the narrator mispronounces the term "dressage" more than once, which makes anyone who has a clue about horsemanship wince in annoyance. If you're going to narrate a book, please find out how to correctly pronounce words you don't know. I'm listening to the book for the second time, as I wanted to see if my initial impression still held. It does, so if you are a Virgin River series fan you may prefer to read this book rather than spend a credit to listen to it.
