    "Meh"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It's okay-ish. At some point the books become a little too predictable, which I guess is a plus for some, but I find it a little irritating. Maybe a little too saccharine and formulaic.

    The sex scenes are embarrassingly bad -- and I find it weird that all the men so far use the same term of endearment -- "baby." Euw.

    They've been pleasant easy summer reads, but I'm ready to move on now.


    What could Robyn Carr have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    So far, all the women are small and the characteristics the men most respond to seem to be the smallness of each woman (her small tongue, her small hands, her small waist). C'mon. Can't they have other attractive qualities besides "small"?

    I don't know that I'll continue any more in the series, but I'd like to see a larger woman find some love among the ex-Marines of Virgin River. Maybe it happens later, but I probably won't know


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    I dunno. At some point all the male characters and all the female characters seem the same. I guess I like the Mel/Paige/Brie character. Therese Plummer did a good job, it's just that the characters all seemed alike.


    Was Whispering Rock worth the listening time?

    Sure. It was fun.

    Story
    "Didn't care for this one at all....skip it!"

    I like a romance novel to be about a man and a woman' s relationship, and how it evolves.

    Seems like the author of this novel was once a gynecologist or midwife herself... far to much focus on giving birth, gyno exams, STDs, date rape, midwifery, and babies. Probably written for teens and very young women - too many parts of it came across as "educational" in nature.

    The men, some of whom were really just boys, were all tall, handsome, muscular and just too darned "sensitive" to be be believable. No edge to them at all when they were around the women. And the women were all tiny, perfect and beautiful (except, of course, for the poor woman giving birth on the birthing video, who was described as sweaty and hairy). So unrealistic it was kind of sickening .... far too sappy and "sweet" for my taste.

    A pet peeve....I hated that the men always said nah instead of no, and yeah instead of yes. And every woman's name was "baby" to them. Just got really annoying...they all sounded like a bunch of unsophisticated hicks. Small towns folks are just not that ignorant any more, if they ever were.

    The narrator was just OK...not bad, but not great either. By the end of the story, the characters all sounded alike.

    I started listening to this series in order, based on the reviews, and thought the first one was promising, and the second was just OK, but this one put me off completely. I will not be continuing with it.

    "Good positive propaganda"

    In the end a happy story . Good positive propaganda about drugs and safe sex. A bit too much sex, but very amusing in places. Overall enjoyed the book.

    "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!
