Publisher's Summary

Fan-adored author Robyn Carr presents the story of a woman who "needs a change [and] gets something very different than she bargained for" (Booklist).

Recently widowed, grieving Los Angeles midwife/nurse Melinda Monroe answers a small upstate town's ad for help. Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

    Story
    "A Nice Romance, After All"
    If you could sum up Virgin River in three words, what would they be?

    Light, easy listen


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

    Yes, I would listen to another one of her stories. The characters were strong and she conveys emotion rather well. The story, being a romance, is a bit predictable - but, the medical scenes were vivid and accurately written and that helped to add a nice layer of interest to the story.


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

    The main character was my favorite - I'm a nurse, too and I thought her emotions and motivations were true to life.


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

    I just liked the overall idea of an LA nurse going to work in a small town. Who among us hasn't thought about living a more simple life?


    Any additional comments?

    Credit-worthy - makes a nice little backdrop while working at the computer or making dinner.

    "I loved this entry into another series"

    I'm such a fan of Jan Karon and John McDonnough's reading of the Mitford series. I was looking for another interesting series to start listening to and this novel fit the bill. The characters are interesting and the story thought-provoking. The performance by Therese Plummer is excellent - a female John McDonnough! I''ve already bought the second in the series and can't wait to settle down with my knitting and another tale of the fictional location of Virgin River.
    I listened to the entire book of Virgin River in two days!

    Story
    "A good book, but perhaps one's enough"

    I was drawn in by the storyline of a recent widow looking for a change. I enjoyed the story and her new life that came full circle. It was a bit steamy in section, which was welcome and I found I became more interested as the book went along.

    Having enjoyed Virgin River, I picked up a second from this series [Promise Canyon] and found, while the plot was different, it had the making of 'the same book'... girl looking to build her life, boy becomes attracted, girl denys and pushes away, boy persists, girl gives in, finds love, finds life, etc, etc....I think I've uncovered the formula of this series.

    Story
    "Delightful"
    Where does Virgin River rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to so many audible books over the years, starting with books on tapes, CDs and now my membershipship with audible, that I would say it was close to a "10". It was a light read. I usually like to listen to a light read after listening to a heavy, intense read, and this fit the bill. .



    What was one of the most memorable moments of Virgin River?

    When Mel arrived in Virgin River and absolutely every thing went wrong that could go wrong.


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

    No..I liked the narrator.


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

    I like to listen while I so other things. In the car, gardening etc.


    Any additional comments?

    Wasn't sure I would like it since I had never heard of the series, but I am now glad I bought it.
    I have bought two more in the series.

    "SLOW... SLOW... SLOW"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I really liked the story line.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Therese Plummer’s performances?

    Not sure at this point.


    Any additional comments?

    The book moves excessively slow... painfully slow... 2 hours into the book and they are still in the first 24 hours of the story. Wished I had the technology available to speed up the narrator. She pauses constantly and just reads the book excessively slow in my opinion.

    "Awesome series! Beautiful narration!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend not only this book, but the entire Virgin River series. I have listened to six Virgin River audiobooks, and have read several more on my Kindle. The town and people of Virgin River immediately became quite real to me, and remain so. As soon as I complete one book, I am swept right into the next.

    In my profession as a mental health therapist, I spend my days with many clients who have been seriously damaged by domestic violence, sexual assault, and other crimes. I find that immersing in the Virgin River stories is healing for my heart. They remind me that no matter the enormity or awfulness of the challenges someone faces, we can reach out with an open heart and truly help.
