I love all the Virgin River books. This is such an inspiring and well written set of books. The narrator also is marvelous. Her voice plays a part in all characters. Love these books:)

Whispering Rock

This is about the 8th time I've listened to this series of books and I love them. In this book , not only do you hear Mike and Bree's story, but we're also introduced to the Booths and most specifically to Tommy. I just love his character. When you read the description to each book you're given the description of the main story. However Robyn weaves so many other rich stories into each book. sometimes a story will be told throughout several books. These stories would make one heck of a TV series.

Enjoyabe story and listen

I am really enjoying this Virgin River series. Each book build on the previous story, introducing you to new characters, new situations, continues with storyline from and included individuals from the previous books. It appears there are 18 + books in this series. The other draw to these books is the narrator; Theresa Plummer does an excellent job. I definitely will be picking up more of this series.

Good story

Enjoyed the story about Mike and Bree but Mel really works a nerve! I would have enjoyed more stories about the Riordan boys ... I KNOW they haven't been introduced yet but I've finished the WHOLE series and felt more information about Sean/Franci and Collin/Jilly would make for GREAT stories!

Many current events included

Enjoyed listening to this book there was a lot of subplots and plots of people we knew and new people introduced you caught up on all the characters and it was a lot of fun there were times when I was hard to hear but that is life as more accurately portrayed.

A good 3rd book in the romance series.

I enjoy the characters that Robyn Carr creates in the series. It was a nice read, not too complicated but just plain enjoyable. It is a lot about the town of Virgin River in California, which is interesting to learn about.

I am sure I will continue the series at some point. By the way, the narrator Therese Plummer, does a great job in reading this series.

Great story, but an uncomfortable subject matter

What made the experience of listening to Whispering Rock the most enjoyable?

That Mike and Brie find each other. They both help each other through hard lessons and become each others backbone until they can get back on their feet again.

What other book might you compare Whispering Rock to and why?

The only other story that made me as uncomfortable as this story was "Lover Awakened," by J.R. Ward. The experience of Zadist with the mistress is one of the hardest scene I have ever read. Really, really disturbing.

Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, Plummer's performance makes Virgin River series, feel real and a place you would want to visit.

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

When Brie's ex-husband wants her back after leaving her for another woman, and she tells him to leave.

Any additional comments?

Great series.

Narration nearly perfect

What did you like best about Whispering Rock? What did you like least?

The combination of Ms Carr and Ms Plummer works. Ms Plummer does an extraordinary job portraying these characters. It feels real as you listen and her style allows the listener to sink right into the story.

I enjoyed the parts of this book that explored pain, fear and grief. It was still a romance novel and I am sure Ms Carr's fans will enjoy the story as much as any other. But what I liked best was not the romance. It was the exploration of healing. We all encounter tragedy and sometimes even violence in one of its forms. I enjoyed seeing the characters react, then take time to heal. I found it believable that these characters would love one another because the author took more time to develop the friendship.
