    "Very Enjoyable Listen"

    I love the characters that Robyn Carr creates. I'm glad in this series, new people are added, but you don't lose touch with other one, and what's happening in their lives.

    "Carr never disappoints"

    Enjoyed the continued story. It's easy to get caught up in the lives of the thunder point residents. Carr does a good job of creating characters you can relate to; and Therese Plummer is an excellent narrator. Next up for me--"the hero" the next in the series!

    Story
    "Loving this series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's a wonderful story of people who become very much a part of me while i listen. Again in a small town where everyone seems to know each other's business but the characters involved. Captivating!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mac and Grace-both very good characters with history of families but haven't thought about dating. They are super great parents with charming personalities.


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

    Therese Plummer is close to number one in all narrations I've heard. She's gifted! Always superb.


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

    It held my interest and I listened as much as I could each day without missing anything.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this series in order. If you like small towns, people of long ago this series is for you. I found it delightful. I have now finished all that has been written including book 6.

    "Great Story"
    Would you listen to The Newcomer again? Why?

    Yes definitely.Lovely book and in time I would revisit it again.


    What other book might you compare The Newcomer to and why?

    I would compare the whole Thunder Point series to Susan Mallery's Fools Gold series.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can't say I prefer her to reading the book but I love listening to any books she has narrated. She is brilliant.


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

    Yes. Usually I only listen when I am painting or crafting. With this book I wanted to keep on listening.

    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.

    "Another GREAT story!"
    What did you love best about The Newcomer?

    All of Robyn Carrs books are great and the way all the characters fit and the way Robyn does not leave any loose ends is perfect!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't say I have just one favorite....all of Robyn's characters are what small towns shoule be made of


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "NOT HER BEST"
    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    Of course. I have been listening to Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer for years and will continue; I love the combination. This book and series just isn't as dynamic as her other series such as Virgin River, etc.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robyn Carr? Why or why not?

    Yes.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    No. She does a great job.


    Did The Newcomer inspire you to do anything?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    Please Ms. Carr pick up the pace.

    "So Much Drama"

    I use to like Robyn Carr - but every character has to have so much drama, so many feelings, so much hurt, so much discovery. I might as well watch the soaps on TV. Just can't take it any more.

    Story
    "Love, Heartbreak, Resolution"

    So I'm admittedly a Virgin River fanatic (another series by Carr) and started this series to feed my addiction. This book had gotten some mediocre reviews. I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I enjoyed the development of Mac and Gina's love story. The sub plot involving Gina's daughter was a little painful: though I could appreciate her heartbreak and understood where Carr was coming from at times it was frustrating. Overall, I'm glad I listened, enjoyed the reader but doubt I'll ever give it a second listen.
