Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I recommend this series, plus Grace Valley and Thunder Point (all related stories)

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tis the Season?

Under the Cristmas Tree (book 7 1/2) is continued in book 8: Forbidden Falls where you here the store of the pups mother. And in book 11: Promise Canyon, more about the Vet.
Midnight Confessions (book 10 1/2) the story starts with the Foley Family in book 4, A Virgin River Christmas, continues in book 10 Moonlight Road, and ends with the brother's story in Midnight Confessions.

What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

The narration was great. Perfect. She brings all the characters to life and makes them feel like real people.

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

I love it when all of the family members are accounted for. Its like all the questions are answered (you know "what happened to so n' so"). that's just a over all good feeling.

Any additional comments?

I hope Robyn Carr adds more books to the "Virgin River" series.

RITA recipient Robyn Carr is the number one New York Times best-selling author of the wildly popular Virgin River books. The 20th in the series, My Kind of Christmas follows Patrick, the youngest Riordan brother, as he recovers from a tragic loss. After his best friend dies, Patrick tries to forget his sorrow in the arms of Jack Sheridan's beautiful niece, Angie. Now the couple just wants to be left alone this Christmas- but their families have other ideas.

Would you listen to My Kind of Christmas again? Why?

This complete series gets a five star rating from me.I will listen and/or read (novella's are not available on Audible yet) this series again and again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Sheridan and the Riordan Families come together in this issue, which makes this one the very best. All of the Characters have their ups and downs, which makes me love and sometimes dislike them, which in turn keeps me turning the pages so to speak.

What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

All the characters feel like real people to me. Ms. Plummer is one of the very best narrators. She brings the characters to life.

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

My aaah, moment was at the end, when all the Riordans join the Sheridan family for a meal and the true coming together of Patrick and Angie.

  • Delusion In Death

It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

Would you consider the audio edition of Delusion In Death to be better than the print version?

Yes, Susan Ericksen brings the story to life. When I hear Dallas and Peabody, I see them in my mines eye and I know them like old friends.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's hard to choose just one favorite character, because they all add up to make the whole story line great. I love Dallas' character, but I have to say, Peabody is my favorite. She is loyal, funny and agood team player.

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

Ms. Ericksen brings each character to life. she gives Dallas'sharp mine and Peabody's smart mouth a very believable face.

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

This book, like all of Nora Roberts'books, was a real page turner. You just cann't put it down until you know what happens next.
