    "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.

    "Really really good"

    What a marvelous story! Characters who could actually be real people with real emotions and problems. If you like a well done happy ending, this is it. Therese Plummer does a fantastic job of telling it.

    I use audiobooks as means of an escape from reality. Nice to just relax with a book. Ienjoy a very eclectic array of genres...anywhere from chick lit romance to mystery to science ft. Just a common mother of three.

    "Great romantic mystery."
    What made the experience of listening to Virgin River the most enjoyable?

    This book was very good. The characters were so easy to love. Easy going and keeps your interest as long as you like romance. There was just enough suspense that made me buy the next book...I really loved the book.


    What other book might you compare Virgin River to and why?

    This has a Nicolas sparks feel to it.


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

    I had not but I have since.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes but that would ruin the book!!!!! lol

    "Great story and wonderfully flawed characters."
    What did you love best about Virgin River?

    It's tired and depressive state held together by strong people who recognize the gem it could become.


    Which character ??? as performed by Therese Plummer ??? was your favorite?

    Mel Sheridan


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

    I was captivated by the characters and story line development. Both the humor and sadness elicited strong emotions.


    Any additional comments?

    Looked forward to the a sequel.

    "Language Alert"

    Maybe it's not offensive to you but it is to me. This book uses the Lord's name and "God" and GD. A lot!
