    Story
    "very sweet love story!"
    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    yes, I would try another book from Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect of the story for me is when Mel realizes that she is pregnant.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, the narration matched the pace of the story.


    Do you think Virgin River needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    over all this was a very good book.

    Story
    "Glad I only paid $4.95 for this one"

    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.

    "LOVE IT GREAT WORK!"

    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!

    "What a wonderful introduction to a new author!"

    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

    "Disappointing"

    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.

    "Awesome Storyline!!!!"

    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.

    "So Good"

    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.
