Publisher's Summary

Marine veteran John "Preacher" Middleton intimidates just about everyone who walks into his bar. But when an abused young mother comes in, seeking protection from her ex-husband, Preacher promises to become her guardian - and maybe something more.

    "Shelter Mountain"

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

    Used to read classic lit for pleasure of well-written prose. Now, with MS, it's thrillers, courtroom/police dramas, and adventure to escape!

    "Okay if you like Romance books"

    Robyn Carr seems to have developed her writing skills in this novel, and I must say it was okay. Not great, just okay, but better than Virgin River. Again the character development is lacking, but improved, the storyline is shallow, but has it's moments. I won't be reading any more from Robyn Carr, but if you like gooey Romance novels you will probably enjoy the Virgin River series.

    "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.

    "Predictable"

    I agree with all the other negative reviews here and also add that the book is extremely predictable. If you have a brain, don't waste your time with this like I did.

    "Paige and Preachers story was even better than the first!"

    I love how she fully develops the characters, and it's not just about two people, but it's about families and communities with their real life struggles and triumphs.

    She has very quickly become a favorite author, and this a favorite series!

    Story
    "Characters are one dimensional."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who enjoys easy reading with little plot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robyn Carr again?

    No.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the birth scene because something was actually happening.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shelter Mountain?

    I would have told Robyn that flawless characters make boring characters. The most perfect male protagonist must STILL have some flaws! Otherwise the story is unrealistic and cringe worthy. Some of the conversations between the men were ridiculous. Men don't talk like that.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to read an action packed, interesting love story try Outlander or The Bronze Horseman. Or the Into the Wilderness series.
