I pre-ordered this book and was thrilled when it arrived. I was terribly disappointed in the very first reviews that were left. I was prepared to not like it at all. HOWEVER, I truly enjoyed every minute of it and hated to see it come to a close. Therese Plummer's delivery of the story filled a longing that I've had for more Virgin River and Thunderpoint stories. This felt like going home in so many ways.
It is my understanding from the reviews through Amazon, that this book is a reprint of "Runaway Mistress" under a different title. Since neither title have been available through Audible until this one was released, I don't have an opinion on the subject. I can, however, understand why readers of "Runaway Mistress" that purchased this book as well would be upset. Regardless, Robyn Carr didn't disappoint in this novel. Therese...you're still my favorite narrator of ALL TIMES!!!!
If you haven't read "Runaway Mistress", this is a highly recommend listen! Very much worth the credit. Just don't buy both! ;)

I was reluctant to start Swept Away because of the overall low review scores, but on reading the comments I found that most criticism is because it is a rerelease of an earlier work, Runaway Mistress. As a rule I avoid books that are renamed to generate new sales, but since I had not read it under the previous name and this was the first offering of the story as an audiobook, I decided to spend a credit.
I did enjoy this story. First, I have to give credit to Therese Plummer. I have come to enjoy her as the voice of Virgin River and Thunder Point, so her narration truly sets the stage for a good story. I listen to every Robyn Carr audiobook released and this one did not disappoint. The main character, Jennifer, is a strong woman who undergoes growth and development through her struggles. She discovers kindness in a caring community, and the character traits and themes I love so much in Virgin River and Thunder Point are also found in this Nevada town. The male lead, Alex, is a strong, responsible man with a solid moral compass. The supporting characters are well developed and interesting. Although I thought Jennifer's underlying story and motivational premise are a bit weak, these books usually require some suspension of disbelief. Overall, this is a solid Robyn Carr romance and worth the credit.
