Publisher's Summary

Fan-adored author Robyn Carr presents the story of a woman who "needs a change [and] gets something very different than she bargained for" (Booklist).

Recently widowed, grieving Los Angeles midwife/nurse Melinda Monroe answers a small upstate town's ad for help. Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the characters, and the narrator was so easy to listen to. Have now downloaded more books in this series.

    Story
    "Throw Back Romance With Modern Content!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend it to women my age and to women who love the old romance formula of city woman meets hunky mountain man.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Virgin River?

    The big love encounter.


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

    Doc


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

    When Melinda Monroe reveals an important element about her past.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is somewhat predictable, but, it is enjoyable. The predictability does not deminish the overall story. It is a good listen while you drive story and it does have an element of wanting to know what happens next.

    Story
    "A Nice Romance, After All"
    If you could sum up Virgin River in three words, what would they be?

    Light, easy listen


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robyn Carr? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would listen to another one of her stories. The characters were strong and she conveys emotion rather well. The story, being a romance, is a bit predictable - but, the medical scenes were vivid and accurately written and that helped to add a nice layer of interest to the story.


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

    The main character was my favorite - I'm a nurse, too and I thought her emotions and motivations were true to life.


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

    I just liked the overall idea of an LA nurse going to work in a small town. Who among us hasn't thought about living a more simple life?


    Any additional comments?

    Credit-worthy - makes a nice little backdrop while working at the computer or making dinner.

    "I loved this entry into another series"

    I'm such a fan of Jan Karon and John McDonnough's reading of the Mitford series. I was looking for another interesting series to start listening to and this novel fit the bill. The characters are interesting and the story thought-provoking. The performance by Therese Plummer is excellent - a female John McDonnough! I''ve already bought the second in the series and can't wait to settle down with my knitting and another tale of the fictional location of Virgin River.
    I listened to the entire book of Virgin River in two days!

    Story
    "A good book, but perhaps one's enough"

    I was drawn in by the storyline of a recent widow looking for a change. I enjoyed the story and her new life that came full circle. It was a bit steamy in section, which was welcome and I found I became more interested as the book went along.

    Having enjoyed Virgin River, I picked up a second from this series [Promise Canyon] and found, while the plot was different, it had the making of 'the same book'... girl looking to build her life, boy becomes attracted, girl denys and pushes away, boy persists, girl gives in, finds love, finds life, etc, etc....I think I've uncovered the formula of this series.
