    "Great author if you like Nora Roberts!"

    I've been looking for another author who can write an interesting story, develop his/her characters and give me a smile on a regular basis without dragging me through some long drawn out mistaken perception and hurt feelings. I think I've found her in Robyn Carr. She has all the qualities I love about Nora Roberts' stories, without the graphic descriptions of the violence that so often seems to anchor a romance story. This story is about a young woman whose husband is tragically murdered causing her to leave LA for a more peaceful place. From the start, you know that Virgin River isn't exactly peaceful, but is full of "characters" in the true sense of the word. Hope, Doc and Preacher are wonderful foils for the main characters Mel and Jack. Sure the romance develops a bit rapidly, but it's a romance novel after all. The love scenes are tasteful while steamy and the relationships delightful. I'm already in to the third book of the series and they just seem to get better. I'm so glad there's more!

    "Light-hearted romance of sorts"

    The characters are interesting, but I grew bored with the plot about 3/4 of the way through. My general reading interests do not include romance novels. If you're into light-hearted romance novels, this is a great read. Great author and narrator. There are several more books that follow this one in the Virgin River series.

    "Just the beginning!"

    I enjoyed this book just enough to go to my favorite used book store to find the rest of the Virgin River series. All I can say is it gets better with each book. This is just the beginning and each story becomes more personal with each character. And they get better and better. I just finished the last one (check out R Carr's webb site for the entire series so far), and when I put it down all I could say was "I want more of Virgin River!"

    "Wonderful Series!!"

    I chose this book based on the narrator. I am a big Therese Plummer fan! This book was an excellent listen and left me wanting more. I am on book 5 of the series and it hasn't let me down. Give this a try, you wont regret it!

    "One of the best!"

    This was a really good book, and the narrator was also excellent! You fall in love with the characters, and the story is well-developed and wonderful. Looking forward to the next in the series.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    "Fabulous"

    An excellent read. Light hearted, sweet, predictable. Nice plot development, medical facts were correct, well researched. I read this in one day, didn't want to put it down. This one is a keeper.
    A credit well spent.

    "What a great series!"

    I can't believe how many books Carr has gotten out of this series but she has. Each one as good as the last. After listening to them all, I still can't wait for more. Fun to see how the town keeps growing. I find myself wishing I could visit this little town and all the people in it. So fun. Easy to listen to. Keep 'em coming!!!

    "Start of a good series"

    Loved this story - the town, people and twists and turns - couldn't stop listening

    Good for a rainy day or as part of a busy day

    The narrator has done a wonderful job yet again (listened to other booked narrated by TP)

    Apart from the twists in the story I wish I could live in a town like this - who wouldn't all the fun and single men !!

    hope the rest of the series continues the high standards set by book one
