Best-selling author Robyn Carr has earned a devoted following for her inspirational tales of love and redemption set in the near-magical confines of Virgin River.
Lilly Yazhi knows all she needs to know about Clay Tahoma. Sure, he’s got a certain appeal befitting his Navajo roots, but she’s not falling for Clay’s silent, “earthy” attractiveness. She certainly won't make the same mistake as Clay’s ex-wife. Only trouble is, her heart and mind have committed to different resolves....
Take another trip down the Virgin River.

For anyone who enjoys romance series, this one is for you. Although some of the scenes are a bit over the top (speaking of the series in general and not this book in particular), these books are a pleasant read without anything to graphic. They give you the view of people in a small community that work as friends and neighbors. With men who are all any woman would want (okay, it is a little unrealistic to have so many handsome, caring men who idolize their woman) it makes you want to pack a suitcase and head out to Virgin River and Jack's Bar. I'd advise getting all the books in the series and starting at the beginning. You can listen to these as stand alones but you get a more in depth feeling fot the characters when you learn about them from the start and how they interact with each other.
I listen to this series over and over and can't wait for the next book to come out.
Listen on people!
Robyn Carr strikes again! Loved it, well done Ms. Carr.
Pulls you in right from the beginning & interested until the end. You will not want to stop listening once you've started. Enjoy!
More Carr please Audible!
Nice story. The heroine was a bit unrealistic in some of her thinking but the other characters more than make up for her shortcomings. Love this series!
Day dreaming book lover!
Sometimes it is difficult to let characters go after reading books. I so love series books because the stories continue and the characters lives grow just like in life. Robyn Carr's books are the best of all worlds. The characters grow and develop and Virgin River is place I'd like to live.
Promise Canyon features two new "fall in love" characters Lily and Clay. The book also brings in Native Amercian tradition and culture. And there are horses! RC always has an emotional struggle in her books and this does not disappoint...baggage from the past, pain and disappointment something anyone can relate too. Not as "deep" as other stories but on target. The situations usually work out with a prescribed effort. Previous characters are brought into the story and something very sad happens but in The Virgin River way the town folk come together and heal. New characters are introduced that hopefully lead up to more books...especially "on the search for his birth father" Denny. It is a fantasy community and so nice to visit....and I appreciate happy endings.
I really like this author's books. They have good, strong characters and I like the town she has created in her Virgin Rive Series. It's a place I look forward to visiting every time she writes a new novel! This story has depth and heat, and I am looking forward to her Feb. release! Therese Plummer is an excellent narrator for this series and I have come to expect her as Robyn Carr's narrator of choice.
Believer in what you can't see
How the characters work with the horses and how they learn to trust each other.
I liked everyone equally in this story. They all contibuted to the storyline and without them the story would not have been as interesting.
All of her performances brings Virgin River to life. She makes you feel like you are home and part of the family.
Ever book in this series makes you want to listen to it all in one sitting, the stories are just wonderful.
nice contemporary series.
The Virgin River Books always bring a different story. This time it revolves around horses; enjoyed learning equestrian trivia while listening. The love interests are always predictable but who doesn't like a happy ending. These are such great escape books and once you are invested in the series you are happy to follow along with the lives of the characters you have come to know and love.
A bit of a departure from other's in the series but enough connection with previously introduced characters to be enjoyed as part of the Virgin River series.
LIfe-long reader, fond of mysteries, scifi, fantasy. Prefer good story-tellers, with interesting premises. Road warrior-so listen a lot!
Ms. Carr deals with the issues of Native Americans in this one, not only Anglo vs Indian, but tribe vs tribe, in forging a life outside the reservation using traditional skills. Our hero and heroine, from different tribes, both have baggage from teenage wild oats, and have become more mature people, but the memories still haunt them - and in the case of our hero, an Anglo ex-wife doesn't want it to be all ex = while she's divorced him, she still wants him at her beck and call. And his considerable skill with horses.
Our old friends in Virgin River are somewhat peripheral to this one, but it's still a visit to a strong community and old friends.
