I enjoy this Virgin River series when I want light reading (listening) with a feel-good ending. This book is a good addition to a light series about normal men and women with everyday lives and problems -- there are no super powers, no world-shattering conspiracies, no extreme technology or special effects. These are stories about people I can relate to and understand.
Although I'm usually a stickler for reading a series in order, this book can stand alone. Other characers from around Virgin River are included, but this story does not rely on their histories. However, if you're interested in Reverend Kincaid and Ellie, you can go back to read Forbidden Falls, or if you want to find out more about Jack and Melinda, you can go back to the first Virgin River book (very humerous and touching). The Riordan brothers have their own books in Moonlight Road and Wild Man Creek. As for the narration, Therese Plummer's performance of Robyn Carr's books will alway improve my mood!

I have totally enjoyed this series. It was nice to follow all the characters through these books. I do suggest you start with the first in the series and follow it through in order. Each story introduces you to a new part of the town and you follow many of the characters and get updates through each book and you learn the story of new characters. This is really a great series and the narrator is really one of the best. I totally recommend this series from start to finish.

Robyn Carr writes great books, which make wonderful audiobooks. This one, like most of the series, is narrated by Therese Plummer, who soes a terrific job.
Sunrise Point introduces new characters to Virgin River, apple orchard owner, Tom Cavanaugh and his grandmother, Maxi. There are only a few mentions of the VR regulars, Jack, Luke, Mel etc. and this is the only very slight niggle I have about this audiobook. The story of Nora Crane and Tom Cavanaugh is enjoyable and entertaining and if you've enjoyed previous VR titles you will certainly love this one too.
