Publisher's Summary

Marine veteran John "Preacher" Middleton intimidates just about everyone who walks into his bar. But when an abused young mother comes in, seeking protection from her ex-husband, Preacher promises to become her guardian - and maybe something more.

    "Love these books"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I just love Robyn Car's series. They are very enjoyable. I hate for the story to end and cant wait for the next book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was well written. Each book has the basic same characters but centers around certain persons and how their life intertwines with the other people in the town.


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

    She is awesome. Her voice makes the book come to life. I have hear many narrators - some really get on your nerves, but Therese is smooth and very easy to listen to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I really could see these books as a movie.. similar to Nora Roberts. Not sure what the tag line would be.

    "Books should be rated!!!"
    Would you try another book from Robyn Carr and/or Therese Plummer?

    I really loved "Shelter Mountain" However I found myself very disappointed at the constant foul language. I know a lot of people don't think anything of it, but I don't enjoy hearing it all the time. I am very offended by the use of Jesus Christ name used in such a awful way. Why pick on him? I much prefer authors that can express pain, frustration, and other strong feelings without having to use curse words. We have a huge vocabulary of words! Why use the same one over and over? The story was good, I think the author needs to be a little mindful that all people may not enjoy having their ears blasted with constant cursing when listening to a good book. It is really too bad as I won't be reading anymore of the series as it ruins the whole book for me. Hummm I have to pay to listen to cursing.


    If you’ve listened to books by Robyn Carr before, how does this one compare?

    This my first and last, won't be listening to any more


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    She has a very good voice, very expressive, and easy to understand.


    Did Shelter Mountain inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, Stop listen to books that cannot make better use of the vast array of words in the English language.

    "Favorite book of the series!"
    Where does Shelter Mountain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is one of my all time favorites! Coming from this book junkie that means something, lol.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Preacher, John Middleton is by far one of my favorite characters. I just have a thing for big scary looking men that turn to mush only for their women and children.


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

    She does the childrens voices very well.

    "Terrific story,excellent narration!"

    My first Robyn Carr book and I loved every minute. The narration was spot on. It didn't take long for you to feel as if you knew the town and the people. Looking forward to my next Carr story. Thanks to all the reviewers who recommended this very enjoyable book .

    "Must be for men"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is mildly entertaining at best. It must be directed towards men because there was way too much talk of men's personal health problems, hairline issues, men's emotional struggles, and mail bonding stuff. I wish I would have known this before purchasing the book. I'm very disappointed and wish I could return this one and the other two Virgin River books I have not yet read.

    "A good listen for sleep! Easy listen."
    What did you love best about Shelter Mountain?

    I had recently read the first book in the series. I found myself easily lost in the story. The story is good, not off the charts, same ol same ol, but I like a relaxing girly suspense book at night to wind down. The Main characters are very likable and as much as I think its just an "ok" series, I found myself getting more of them. I wanted to know what happened next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mel, she is relaxed sexy and smart.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That would spoil it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A cozy quiet town, but even small towns have their drama.

    "True Fan!"

    I'm a true fan of Robyn Carr, especially her Virgin River series. BUT I absolutely love Therese Plummer's narrative talents. She puts so much emotion in her delivery. She certainly spoils the reader. She's #1 in my estimation.

    The Virgin River series is story strong with the perfect mix of romance and sex for my taste. I don't enjoy the novels that the sex over rides the story line. Robyn Carr has a talent that surpasses so many other authors in my opinion.

    "Robyn Carr shines again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is a wonderful continuation of the Virgin River saga which I'm hooked on. Wish it would go on and on but all good things do have to come to and end sometime. The characters are so engaging and have very real personalities.


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

    Yes, the previous Robyn Carr books all set around Virgin River. They were all done very well. Great voice changes for the characters.


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

    Yes, but that was not possible because of the length of the book and unfortuately I had to go to work.

    "Not my usual read"

    I normally ONLY read historical romance. I will be buying more books from this author. the story was fabulous and the reader was great. The down side (only) is the -HE SAID....SHE SAID ... it was distracting and not needed . Over All ....I am very impressed with this author and her story lines.
