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.

Yes. The people are believable, likable and you want the best for them.
The anxiousness, happiness & believablity of the characters.
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.
Yes...she is wonderful narrator because she pulls you in to the story as if you are right in the story yourself!
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!!!!!!!
The heroine was irritating. In the beginning of the book all she did was whine.
I didn't like her voice and I thought she read the story too slowly.
I was disappointed in the story and didn't like Mel. Too whiney, too wimpy, too middle class. She buys and wears designer jeans and shoes. She drives a BMW. She yells
Didn't finish book
Absolutely. Sometimes I want a break from the alternate universes of sci-fi or the extremem emotions of some of the more heart-wrenching authors. This fits the bill just right.
This is my first, but I will look for others.
When the main character cried during an emotional breakdown, Plummer's voice was incredibly authentic. She put many hollywood actors to shame!
A better story. Less predicable. More interesting characters.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
All the men sound the same, all the women sound the same, all the kids sound the same. There was very little variation, except for the old people.
Disappointment. I guess I should have known but I didn't see
yes I'm so glad to find a new series i love. the book just flowed and its so easy to fall in love with all the characters.
i loved jack if every man was like him the world would be a better place.
preacher aka john
i laughed cried and got angry at characters i highly recommend this series.
worth every cent of your money
Well, one always likes a tall, silent, strong and yet gentle male lead.
Not particularly... it wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly outstanding among the many contenders in the romance genre.
The narrator was fine...
Not likely, but then I find few movies worth the $10 price of admission these days.
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.
