If you've read my review of the first book in this series, Virgin River, you'll know why I like this author so much. Her ability to tell a compelling love story while keeping a smile on your face is only matched by Nora Roberts (at least as far as I've discovered- let me know who else I should try).She never uses demeaning language nor snarky comments to get a quick laugh and avoids graphic descriptions of violence. In this book, you learn more about the gruff "Preacher" and how tender he is on the inside. Paige is a battered wife looking for a new life and Preacher helps her find it. The descriptions of how Preacher helps her fight to get back her sense of self and safety are rich and help the reader to understand the plight of an abused woman a little better. The scene where Paige teaches Preacher to be a loving partner in bed is just beautiful. No wonder Robyn Carr is a best-selling author!

Robyn Carr is such a masterful storyteller! She makes you feel like you know each character individually. These stories are well-written, funny, touching and believable, with just enough spicy romance to top it off. I sincerely hope Audible gets the rest of this series because they are truly wonderful. I suggest starting with the first book (Virgin River). Oh, and the narrator is EXCELLENT!

Excellent as always with Robyn Carr's books. Complete enjoyment from start to finish. Her characters live with you long after completion.
If you could sum up Shelter Mountain in three words, what would they be?
Entertaining, Enjoyable, Believable.
What other book might you compare Shelter Mountain to, and why?
Virgin River, the first book in this series. The narration of both brought the stories alive.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
There are too many to choose just one as it's a close thing between Preacher and Paige's first time together and Jack delivering his son!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It was short and just a mention of what happen when Paige would wake up at night frightened after all she's been through, and Preacher would just wrap his arms around her, rub her back and tell her he was there and everything would be ok.
Any additional comments?
Therese Plummer's narration brought the story to life. It was brilliant.
Second book in the Virgin River Series and even better than the first. I so wanted to know more about Mel and Jack, and what happened to Liz and Rick and of course Preacher! And its all there is this second book!
Once more narrator Therese Plummer brings the characters alive! I really enjoy listening to her read a book!
Counting the days till i can purchase no 3!!!!
