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.

The characters were believable and the description of the area and people were well done that you feel as though you know them.
yes, I would try another book from Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer
The most interesting aspect of the story for me is when Mel realizes that she is pregnant.
Yes, the narration matched the pace of the story.
Yes. of course Virgin River needs a follow-up book. I think most of the audible readers are very interested in knowing what happens to the old doc. as well as Mel, Jack and the baby.
over all this was a very good book.
Boring, boring, boring. I'm not a quitter but I had to give up on this one after chapter 10. It's rediculous and I decided a waste of my time.
Very High can not wait to listen to the rest.
I just like the characters so very much. The love scenes are the best. It leaves you with very warm feelings. Apleasure to listen too.
No, but I will look her up on other books she has great range.
Have owned for a week and listened twice can't wait for my credits to renew so I can get the next book. Love the way she really makes you feel like you are there in the story. This was my first book to read (listen) to by Robyn Carr but I can tell you it will not be my last!
I am so pleased that I downloaded the first of Robyn Carr's touching entry into Virgin River. The narration sets the stage for an emotional unfolding of relationships young and old, and paints the picture of a lush, stunning rural landscape. Therese Plummer does a wonderful job with each character, so much so that you forget it is only one person speaking. What a fantastic book, I am ready to buy my cabin in Virgin River! LOL
Based on the reviews, I was really hoping to find a new series to listen to. However, I found the characters unbelievable and the story boring and predictable. I finally gave up with about an hour to go. There are just too many other good books out there with which to spend my time.
Virgin River is an awesome book. You get so caught up in the the characters, you can't stop listening; and you literally wish the book would never end. I just downloaded Shelter Mountain, can't wait to listen.
This is a writer of really good, memorable stories about people we can relate to; things that happen to us. Characters well developed. Writing makes you want more of this author. Perfect narrator...really enjoyed so much.
"Start of a good series"
Loved this story - the town, people and twists and turns - couldn't stop listening
Good for a rainy day or as part of a busy day
The narrator has done a wonderful job yet again (listened to other booked narrated by TP)
Apart from the twists in the story I wish I could live in a town like this - who wouldn't all the fun and single men !!
hope the rest of the series continues the high standards set by book one
