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!!!!
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!
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.
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.
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.
Reading and listening is fundamental.
well written. narrator did an awesome job. I was hooked from the first words. author filled in a lot of the missing pieces from the previous book.
