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.

    I am a 43 year old mother of 4, I have a great husband and I am a nurse. I love to spend time with my family and ride atv's. Romance and humerous books are my favorite and I am currently listening to a lot of amish romance books.

    Story
    "I fell in love with Preacher"
    Would you listen to Shelter Mountain again? Why?

    I have listened to this book twice. THerese Plummer is a wonderful narator. she makes every character so believable. The story grabbed my interest from the beginning and all the twists kept my interest till the end. I would like to see another Virgin River book pick the story up of Preacher and Paige where this left off.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shelter Mountain?

    The first time Preacher and Paige made love. and also the first time Preacher showed his love and concern for Christopher.


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

    Preacher by far. She just captured what I feel is his personality.


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

    Again, when Preacher and Paige first made love. He was so afraid that he would hurt her, and the way he so worshiped her and respected her.


    Any additional comments?

    Please give more of the Preacher and Paige story.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Shelter Mountain to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the narrator has a very pleasant voice and I enjoy listening to books as I drive.


    What other book might you compare Shelter Mountain to and why?

    Any of the other Virgin River books


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they bought the house


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I wish you would send these sooner. I am almost finished listening to my next book and I am reading another book so it is hard to remember.

    Story
    "I'm continuing the series in chronilogical order."
    Would you listen to Shelter Mountain again? Why?

    Shelter Mountain continues the story of a fictitious out of the way town in the giant redwood area of California. I'm enjoying the stories, the continuing characters and even Robyn Carr's making her characters moral examples for us all. Can't wait to start the third book.
    I love to listen to audible books while I am on the treadmill and while I knit / crochet - totally enjoyable and lots of exercise and socks made!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Shelter Mountain?

    The integrity of the characters, even including a man who "lives outside the law" but has scruples with regard to others in the stories.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    She's an excellent narrator - even using some incorrect grammar that I believe would be used by some of the characters....

    What did you love best about Shelter Mountain?

    An enjoyable read, on its own or as part of the series. I originally listened to the books as I came upon them and enjoyed them so much I listened to them again in order.

    Story
    "The Sum is Greater than its Parts."

    Short Version: The story was pleasant and homey... enough so that I purchased the third book in the series. I would be ashamed to recommend it to anyone I know, though.

    Long Version: This story takes simplicity to new levels of simpledom. Seriously. The tale is linear, inevitable, and without many surprises. But, it's also a little bit like life, and one can just sink into these characters and become immersed in their lives.

    The narration is atrocious yet pleasant; I have no idea how she pulls it off. She has zero consistency and very little variation between the voices. The Hispanic character sometimes has an accent, sometimes sounds like the main character, and is sometimes a mishmash of both. And yet, Ms. Plummer is very pleasant to listen to, and she somehow manages not to ruin the book for me.

    Disclaimer: I'm not a fan of the romance genre. That said, this book offended me from time to time. A female character curled up like a little kitten in her big hulking man's lap. Really? Sheesh. Numerous mention was made of the Hispanic character's fiery and roving Latin ways. Another sheesh. So, I can't recommend this book, but I can't really not recommend it, either. It somehow manages to rise above its many flaws.

    Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.

    "enjoyable read"

    Wish there really was communities through out our country like this and the good people of Virgin River. In her series so far as I've only read 3 I find them like comfort food and feel all warm and cozy when I'm finished. She holds my interest and keeps me guessing wanting to know what is going to happen next and to whom, and which two are going to hook up next, or is she going to throw new characters into the mix. Looking forward the the next book in the series.
