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.

What a great series!

I can't believe how many books Carr has gotten out of this series but she has. Each one as good as the last. After listening to them all, I still can't wait for more. Fun to see how the town keeps growing. I find myself wishing I could visit this little town and all the people in it. So fun. Easy to listen to. Keep 'em coming!!!

I TOTALLY LOVED THIS! IT WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED!

This was fantastic, great story, narration, a feel good book!! I totally needed this and am on to book 2!!

When Melinda comes to Virgin River, she does not know to think...she doesn't want to stay and is about to high tail it out of there! But the more she stays, the more she falls in love with this charming town...and sometimes its just meant to be!!

SUPER GREAT! I RECOMMEND!!!

Cute story

Started about halfway into the series, and am now starting with the first book to eventually meet in the middle. Even though I know some of the developments, such as what people are married and have children, etc., I am still enjoying starting at the beginning. I have become very attached to the characters and the geographic region they all love. I feel that the author is able to bring new life and a brand new story to each book--not boring or repetitive.

Virgin River Series is AWESOME!

Where does Virgin River rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have read books 1-6 so far and I greatly enjoy them more and more. I love escaping to Virgin River and listening to the trials and tribulations of their everyday life and the troubles that come to them. Each book seems to introduce new characters, while still keeping in touch with the old one that I have grown to love. I highly recommend this series to everyone!

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

When Mel first arrived at the cabin in Virgin River. Laugh out Loud Funny!

What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

Her performance is outstanding! The way she makes the difference voices for each character, and the banter between them, sometimes make me laugh out loud, it's like I am sitting right there watching the characters talk to each other!

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

When Mel was on her bed apologizing to her husband. So heart warming.

too many pregnant women!

The narration was good, the story was not bad but everyone in this town was pregnant. I do like pregnancy as a theme and that is why I purchased this book but it just goes over the top with it.

Robyn Carr US national secret? .......

Was my first reaction because I had NEVER heard of her or the series. I loved the idea of a simple romantic read and thats what I got. This the first in the series will ALways be one of my favourite reads something to curl up with on a cold night, after a break up accompanied by a tub of ice cream or on your vacation. Sweet with wonderful male leads who most women (myself included) would kill to meet.

guess it's o k

What I liked was the description of the place. The characters: not very real,and that is being nice. The story is predictable.

What bother me most was that everything and everybody is just too perfect. As I said not real

Still, I finished it!

My Very Favorite Author!!!

A friend recommended Robyn Carr's books to me and was I ever glad. Ms. Carr has to be my very favorite author. Her characters are so believable and the story lines are so lifelike. Virgin River was a book I couldn't stop listening to! Mel is a hoot and Jack is my dream man!

Great "take me away" stories

This is first in the series and I have them all. I very much enjoyed this and Therese Plummer is well suited for these stories. They make you laugh and they make you cry. I liked all of the charaters and they were well developed. Just a real Feel Good story.
