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.

    "True Fan!"

    I'm a true fan of Robyn Carr, especially her Virgin River series. BUT I absolutely love Therese Plummer's narrative talents. She puts so much emotion in her delivery. She certainly spoils the reader. She's #1 in my estimation.

    The Virgin River series is story strong with the perfect mix of romance and sex for my taste. I don't enjoy the novels that the sex over rides the story line. Robyn Carr has a talent that surpasses so many other authors in my opinion.

    "Robyn Carr shines again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is a wonderful continuation of the Virgin River saga which I'm hooked on. Wish it would go on and on but all good things do have to come to and end sometime. The characters are so engaging and have very real personalities.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, the previous Robyn Carr books all set around Virgin River. They were all done very well. Great voice changes for the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but that was not possible because of the length of the book and unfortuately I had to go to work.

    "Not my usual read"

    I normally ONLY read historical romance. I will be buying more books from this author. the story was fabulous and the reader was great. The down side (only) is the -HE SAID....SHE SAID ... it was distracting and not needed . Over All ....I am very impressed with this author and her story lines.

    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.

    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....
