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.

    Any additional comments?

    Well, I accidentally started with book 6, which made me want to go back and start from the beginning! Now I'm hooked on this series! So far I'm loving the characters and story lines. Looking forward to what happens down the road!

    Story
    "I am hooked! I love Virgin River and it's people."
    If you could sum up Virgin River in three words, what would they be?

    What a place!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Sheridan is my guy. He is what every woman wants in a man. He is so comfortable with who he is that he is not afraid to show compassion. He knows how to 'surrender' to life's situations and I love how he learns to love his woman.


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

    I have so many audible books narrated by Therese Plummer (is she not also Savannah Richards?). I find her voice so comforting and I like that she makes each character's voice distinctive. Her narration played a big part in my decision to purchase all of the books in the Virgin River series.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were parts where I laughed and parts where I cried.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like stories that make you root for many of its characters and that make you feel good, then the Virgin River serie is for you.

    "IF YOU WANT TO GET LOST IN A GOOD LOVE STORY!!!!!!"

    This is the first book for Robyn Carr that I have read/listened to and it was a great story! Therese Plummer did a great job as narrator. I would get another one of Robyn Carr's books any day!!

    Story
    "Not enough scenery"
    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    I choose this book because I love all things California Costal area and Red Wood trees.
    The book is really just a formula romance novel. Not as bad as some but not particularly great either.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robyn Carr again?

    doubtful


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Probably not, the narration was fine.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    a solid formula romance.

    "OMG...What an awesome story book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They all are my favorite...especialy Mel. She thinks things through and gives good advise and does not judge people. She is so remarkably kind and a very caring.


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

    Yes...she is wonderful narrator because she pulls you in to the story as if you are right in the story yourself!


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

    Most defiantly!


    Any additional comments?

    I am on the 5th or 6th book, I listen to it at work and I have cried, laughed, and the romance parts are delightful! On my breaks after hearing the sad parts I would think about it and start tearing up and co-workers start laughing at me except my sister, just tells the other people she has a sensitive heart! I am working to get the entire series of Virgin River! I love all the books so far. I am on book Second Chance Pass book at this time. Love it, Love it!!!!!!!
