    "These books are fantastic!"

    Robyn Carr is such a masterful storyteller! She makes you feel like you know each character individually. These stories are well-written, funny, touching and believable, with just enough spicy romance to top it off. I sincerely hope Audible gets the rest of this series because they are truly wonderful. I suggest starting with the first book (Virgin River). Oh, and the narrator is EXCELLENT!

    "Wonderful story of kindness and unconditional love"

    If you've read my review of the first book in this series, Virgin River, you'll know why I like this author so much. Her ability to tell a compelling love story while keeping a smile on your face is only matched by Nora Roberts (at least as far as I've discovered- let me know who else I should try).She never uses demeaning language nor snarky comments to get a quick laugh and avoids graphic descriptions of violence. In this book, you learn more about the gruff "Preacher" and how tender he is on the inside. Paige is a battered wife looking for a new life and Preacher helps her find it. The descriptions of how Preacher helps her fight to get back her sense of self and safety are rich and help the reader to understand the plight of an abused woman a little better. The scene where Paige teaches Preacher to be a loving partner in bed is just beautiful. No wonder Robyn Carr is a best-selling author!

    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.

    "Awesome series"

    The Virgin River series has been awesome and has not disappointed me. The characters are believable and are the kind of people you would want to know. I particularly liked the strong yet emotional character "Preacher", who was one of the main characters of Shelter Mountain. While the series obviously has females who are major characters, I'm enjoying reading a series that focuses on the men in the town! I would highly recommend it.

    "got to love a Preacher"

    out of all of the men i think i love Preacher the most. he is everyting you can want in a guy wrapped up in a very strong loving man. you really need to read this series if you are looking for a romance that will touch your heart and make you feel all those nice feeling inside well after the books is over. and just think you still have alot more of this series to come.

    "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.
