    Description

    A Netflix original series!

    Welcome back to Virgin River with the book that started it all....

    Wanted: Midwife/nurse practitioner in Virgin River, population 600. Make a difference against a backdrop of towering California redwoods and crystal clear rivers. Rent-free cabin included.

    When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees this ad, she quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to reenergize the nursing career she loves. But her high hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving - the cabin is a dump, the roads are treacherous, and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. Realizing she’s made a huge mistake, Mel decides to leave town the following morning. 

    But a tiny baby abandoned on a front porch changes her plans...and former Marine Jack Sheridan cements them into place. 

    Bonus content included! An exclusive, behind the scenes look at the filming of Season 1 of Virgin River on Netflix!

    Predictable with too much sex

    The story line is predicable and lacks depth. There is way too much explicit sex that is unnecessary for the storyline. The frequent references to "my husband the doctor, my experience in a big LA emergency room, I am a nurse practitioner and certified midwife" get old and redundant. One cannot up and move to a new state and begin work in healthcare without license transfer - this is not instant - no discussion about this and it makes the story unrealistic. if Mel is such a great health care provider why didn't she get mental health interventions for her difficulty dealing with her loss instead of running away? makes one wonder . . . Basically the healthcare stuff is not accurate or realistic. The reader is OK until she tries to change her voice for different characters. This is annoying in a book - it is not supposed to be a performance. I would consider this book soft porn and the sex carries the characters/storyline - who even with it are flat and one dimensional. if you don't like explicit sex don't get this book. if you don't like shallow unrealistic characters don't get this book.if, as an adult you don't like light weight predictable stories that seem like they are focused on a teen audience don't get this book. I will be returning it.

    Very different than show!

    Loved the show. Love the book more!

    A few mispronounced medical terms drove me crazy, but overall a great performance and story!

    A little bit sweet for me

    I don't care for Lifetime movies for the same reason this is a 3 for me. It's a fine story for people who have different tastes.

    This book is great, the tv show is not

    Loved this book. Narration is great. However the Netflix series was very disappointing. It does not match the book. And to me was a lot of unnecessary drama. Not nearly as uplifting as the books.

    If you enjoyed the Netflix show, don’t bother

    This is one of those instances where the TV show is SO much better than the book. All the characters in this book are flat and completely undeveloped, even Mel. Hope McCray is nothing more than an old woman who likes to smoke inside.

    To make matters worse, the author forces Mel to be too young and yet pack in all this life/work experience. Newsflash: you can’t be 28 with a decade of nursing experience. Her historical time consistently doesn’t match up and it’s a bit ridiculous.

    Ewwwww

    I really enjoyed the show so I thought I would like this book. Usually the book is better than the movie or tv series. Not in this case. First off the narrator makes it worse. Then the author seems to think it is necessary to repeat information- over and over. And finally pretty much every chapter has an explicit sex scene that to me is borrrring and just fills space. I don’t know why there’s so many great reviews. Maybe I just have no taste.

    Loved

    This was a great book with a wonderful story line. As I listened to the book, I could imagine myself being there. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Sweet story but too predictable

    I will admit I watched the series on Netflix prior to listening to the book. I enjoyed the twists and turns on the series more than the flow of the book. However, I will continue to read the book series and see if I change my mind. The narrator was a real disappointment! She mispronounced words and used inflection in the wrong places way too many times. She took away from the story. Again - maybe she too will be better in the next book.
