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 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.
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
