    "Touching"

    This was the second book to the Virgin River series and just as wonderful as the first book.

    "Second one even better than the first!"

    Second book in the Virgin River Series and even better than the first. I so wanted to know more about Mel and Jack, and what happened to Liz and Rick and of course Preacher! And its all there is this second book! Once more narrator Therese Plummer brings the charactures alive! I really enjoy listening to her read a book!
    Countin the days till i can purchase no 3!!!!

    "Shelter Mountain"

    Too many "he said, she said." Short sentence structures and shallow content. Some good information on abuse.

    "Sweet Romance"

    I enjoyed Shelter Mountain. The topic of domestic abuse is handled very well by Carr here. And the love story between Faith and Preacher evolved slowly, sweetly. And we get to hear more about characters from book 1 as well as get introduced to a new character. And this is why I only gave the book 3 stars. While I do enjoy the feeling of community you get when reading a Robyn Carr novel, I thought she tackled a bit too much in book 2. I would have preferred the book to focus mostly on Faith and Preacher. But I don't want to undersell this book. This is a sweet, feel good love story.

    "Enjoyed this book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shelter Mountain to be better than the print version?

    No, I would consider it equal to the book itself Both are equally impressive.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that all of the books in this series stand alone and are a great read. When you add them to the whole series, it only adds to the enjoyment.

    "The Virgin River Series has me so hooked!!"

    This story had me in tears and laughing all in one. I was so happy to finally see Preacher fall in love. The romance between them was so sweet and touching. I loved the way he protected her along with the rest of the town. You will be hooked with this one too.
    I will listen to the entire Virgin River Series. Can't wait for the next one.

    "Domestic Abuse"

    This story did handle the issue of domestic abuse very well. I felt sorry for Paige, the woman who was running from her husband.

    I really liked John “Preacher” and the way that he connected with her 3 year old son.
    I also liked the characters Mel and Jack.

    It’s definitely a beach read . . . not complicated, romance, and with a happy ending.
