    "Seems I have heard this before."

    Robyn Carr is on my instant buy list, I have everything she has ever written but I regret to say it seems as if she took pieces of her virgin river stories and made this one. You had a little Jack in their a little of Collin and a few other of the VR series ppl. It was still and enjoyable book but it has been done before. I would of rather of waited longer for a new book then to read something it seems I have just read.

    "The Wanderer"
    If you could sum up The Wanderer in three words, what would they be?

    I have listened to all of the Virgin River series and this one picked right up where Sunrise Point left off. I want to hear more. I need to know what happens to Cooper and Sarah and everyone else.

    Please Please write more.

    "Carr does it again!!"
    Would you listen to The Wanderer again? Why?

    Yes! Anything Robyn Carr writes just sucks you in...you totally get caught up in the small town world with multiple characters. Loved it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cooper but also Mac. Cooper learns a lot about himself. Mac is so dang oblivious!


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

    Def Cooper


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

    Allow the swirl of the wind, water and wonder of of love in a small town to sweep you away.

    "Another winner by Robyn Carr...."

    I can hardly wait for more. Jumping off from Virgin River series into a new series with new characters, and a new environment. But same great stories, and Therese Plummer does a great job narrating as usual.

    Story
    "I am not really sure about this book."

    I have tried getting into the Virgin River series, but I just can't. I have read them and I have listened to them, but I just don't understand the attraction. But I have a compulsion to keep trying them apparently.
    I saw this book as a way to just jump over the Virgin River and try something similar.

    I did like this book, for the most part. It was the first of the series so there was lots of groundwork laid for the future installments. It wasn't too overwhelming, but it was there.
    I did like it because, as the first installment, there wasn't a lot that was "understood" that the reader would know. You see relationships setting up, you see what story lines will be used in the future books. You get a certain enjoyment being at the beginning.

    The mystery, if it could be called that, was easy to figure out fairly early on. The tension wasn't really that tense. The obstacles to "true love" weren't all that unsurpassable.

    It was just a story of people in a town. There seemed to be no highs, no lows. Every now and then there was a small bump in the road, but they just plowed over it.
    Of course, as with the Virgin River series, everybody is amazingly good looking, esy to get along with and the "villains" are painted with a broad brush and have a sign over them that blinks "Not Good People."

    There was a secondary love relationship in this story that I did really enjoy and wished for more of. I do see it is the focus of the next book in this series. I will probably try one more time.


    ETA: I forgot to address the narration. I don't think Ms. Plummer hurt my impression of this book. I generally thought she was spot on and sometimes I thought "This is good," but just as often I wondered if she was doing it any favors. But she is clear and concise in her speaking. She doesn't overact, if anything she may have underplayed it.

    "A little disappointed"
    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    I love Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and Theresa Plummer's narration of that series. Unfortunately, I did not like this first book of her new series as much as I liked her Virgin Rivers series. It seems like a successful author ends up reducing the story line and abandoning the rich character development that made them so popular in the first place. I am sad to say that is how I felt about The Wanderer.

    "ALWAYS GOOD"
    Would you listen to The Wanderer again? Why?

    Yes. I am always up for listening to Robyn Carr. Glad to see she has a new series.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would not have. Yep, this one was a little slow, but Robyn Carr always starts her book series out by introducing all characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not sure.

    "Sweet Beginning"
    If you could sum up The Wanderer in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet, real, entertaining


    What did you like best about this story?

    Listening to Therese Plummer read Robyn Carr's contemporary novels is like sitting down to a meal that is complete with one's favorite dishes, but made with unexpected spices -- still good, but not always exactly the same.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the audio Virgin River series and the Grace Valley trilogy. Robyn Carr has clearly found her niche. I feel good about her characters and stories. They're all nice folks who are likeable (except any bad guys) and one can relate.


    Any additional comments?

    Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer go together like peanut butter & jelly.

    "Great story about friendship, love and small town"
    What did you love best about The Wanderer?

    the location and the characters


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wanderer?

    When the women in Mac's life tell him how clueless he is when it comes to women was a hoot.


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

    Life, Love and Friendship in a small town


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun light book after reading/listening to several intense thrillers. The writing is great and characters were likeable. There is a small mystery but mostly this is a cozy read about friendship, love and a small town. After an old Army buddy dies Cooper goes to pay his respects to his friend at his home on the Oregon coast and finds more than he ever expected. I will have to read the next book in the series when it comes out later this year.

    "This series has Potential !!"

    I liked Cooper when I first met him visiting Virgin River. Getting to know him better in Thunder Point was not a disappointment. This series shows a lot of promise of more heartwarming, fun-loving, and a little crazy love in a small eccentric community. I can't wait to see whose next on the "hit" list. Thanks, Robyn.
