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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    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.

    "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.
