    "My new favorite book in the series!"

    What a wonderful story!! Jillian is forced out of her job (a very shocking situation) and she decides to go to Virgin River for a while to think about what she'll do next. Collin Riordan is healing from the injuries he suffered on a helicopter accident and rents a cabin in Virgin River.

    The romance takes its time and its so well developed. This is definitely the best book in the Virgin River series. The secondary story about a young man named Denny that goes to VR looking for his birth father is really interesting too. Oh and the end of this story brought tears to my eyes. So good and so believeable!

    Narration: it's Therese Plummer! She's simply the best narrator ever. Nobody adds emotions to a book like her. Different and perfect voices for male and females. She has kept the distinct voices of each character for all the fourteen books.Best. Narrator. Ever.

    "Really like this series."

    I just love listening to the Virgin River Series. Robyn Carr does such a great job developing these likable characters. Start from the beginning and don't stop until you've read them all.

    "Another Hit!"

    Carr hits another homerun with yet another Virgin River romance. Again, I love the characters in Virgin River, Carr gives such attention to detail in fleshing out each character she introduces....opening the door for them each to share their story in the next Virgin River romance.
    Wonderful escape! Carr's Virgin River books are nice stand-alone's but even better when read as a series. You cannot help but fall in love with each person she introduces to the community and enjoy "visiting" with them again in future books and glimpsing how their life is progressing..

    "GREAT!!!!!"
    What did you love best about Wild Man Creek?

    This is one of my favorite out of the series. Easy listening and enjoyable all around. I LOVE this series.


    What other book might you compare Wild Man Creek to and why?

    All the Virgin River books have a common theme so it follows the rest. But I especially loved the characters in this book.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    She is the voice of Virgin River! She does a fabulous job bringing the story to life.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    "Um . . . Just Okay"

    This is the first Robyn Carr book for me. What drew me to it was the story line of the injured army pilot who comes to Virgin River to heal after his helicopter crash, and Jillian the young corporate executive who leaves that environment for some "time off" to think. I loved the way that Jillian found her roots and real satisfaction in gardening, and that the experiences that she shared with her grandmother as a young child served to comfort, heal and teach her so many years later. Colin's story of flying helicopters in the army and his shallow relationships prior to meeting Jillian were not surprising. I would have liked even more development of the relationship between Colin and Luke and the rest of the brothers, more about Colin's painting. What I found to be shallow and underdeveloped in this book, and I suspect in this series, is that the relationship between Jillian and Colin never really went beyond Robyn Carr's descriptions of their love making . . . which she repeatedly writes about. Younger women reading this series will surely have "stars in their eyes" and I just find it lacking in substance.

    Story
    "Another great Virgin River story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Great story, great narration.


    What other book might you compare Wild Man Creek to and why?

    I have read almost all in the series and they are all excellent.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    In giving the charaters a "voice" she it brings them to life in a different way than when you read a book. I spend hours a day in my car and this is wonderful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Story
    "Not too bad man creek!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the first half of the book but it became a bit boring near the end.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable - not very exciting!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Therese Plummer?

    Yes - it was good how Therese changed voice to suit character.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A few more descriptive romance scenes.
