Excellent

Robyn Carr's Virgin River series continues to be entertaining in Second Chance Pass that includes returning characters and introduces new ones. These people have depth, mystery, strengths, and weaknesses that make them interesting and believable. I enjoyed the multi-generational love stories - teens through seniors. Therese Plummer's narration is amazing. You actually think you're listening to multiple voices.

Dramatic

Robyn Carr writes amazing love stories and Therese Plummer is the perfect narrator for her writing. I love this series and anxiously await each one to audible. Second Chance Pass brought so much drama to the story I was amazed. This is no carbon copy of the previous books in the series but expands on the new characters along with the ones we have already come to love and appreciate with such intelligence. This is a awesome writer.

Wonderful Read

If you haven't had the opportunity to read Robyn Carr, do so now! The Virgin River series is a fabulous series! Begin with Book one and work your way through the series. Therese Plummer is the best narrator I have ever listened to, she takes me right into the story and drops me into Jack's Bar with the rest of the Virgin River gang!

A beautiful love story...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good love story. This series is wonderful and I would recommend reading it in order. Although each book has a main love story, it has many secondary and interesting characters whose lives evolve on each book.

What did you like best about this story?

How it's such a sweet love story that makes you feel hope and believe in happily ever after even after tragedy and loss occur in your life.

What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

Therese Plummer is the best narrator ever.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When love hits you, you just can't escape :)

Any additional comments?

This is favorite love series. I love each book!

Love series - just not this part

I could not like either of the main people in this story. I appreciated the time given to other Virgin River inhabitants but I guess if I was "madly" in love with someone I would not have left skid marks on the way to marrying again... but that's just me... Also PO'd about what happened to Mel. This book almost makes me want to stop the series....

My favorite of the series so far!

This book was so much fun! Not only was it a satisfying resolution to the torture of waiting for Vanessa Rutledge and Paul Haggerty’s to express their feelings for each other, it was a delightful and substantial reunion with all of the friends we have come to know and love in Virgin River.

We spend substantial quality time with Mel and Jack, even getting to be present for the birth of their second child. We get to be there as Preacher paces the room during Paige’s long labor with their first. We are there when Tom and Brenda seal the deal. We get to visit with Rick and Lizzie while Ricky is home on leave, and we get to be part of the celebration as Jack’s band of Marine brothers toast the young recruit before he ships out to Iraq. We even get to enjoy seeing a spark in the General’s eye as Walt starts keeping company with his new neighbor, a movie star named Muriel St. Claire.

We get briefer visits with other old friends like Doc Mullins, Jack’s sister Brie and her new husband Mike Valenzuela, architect and former Marine Joe Benson – and even Shady Brady.

The characters are multi-dimensional and engaging, the storytelling has layers and texture, and the arks in the tale weave together naturally and with interest.

Theresa Plummer’s narration is as solid and involving as it has been throughout the series. She succeeds in creating distinct characters, her men are as good as her women and her timing and inflection succeed in building the excitement as the action unfolds.

Again, my favorite of the series.

One of my two favorite Virgin River novels

I liked this book a lot. I like all of the Virgin River books, but this and "Virgin River Christmas" are my two favorites in the VR series. I'm not sure what it is about Paige and Preacher and their story that captivated me, but they truly did. Preacher Middleton (John) is a archetype - well, pretty much all Carr's VR characters are! But he's a skillfully drawn archetype - the gentle giant who falls for the tiny helpless woman and rescues her.

But, of course, this is VR, so the women are rarely actually helpless or stand idly by being rescued. Paige's courage and strength also rescue Preacher from the aloneness that suited him -- until it didn't.

Yes, it's a romance, but Carr doesn't write just love and lust. She also writes as much as possible about real people in real situations and how they meet their challenges.

And along the way you'll meet more of Virgin River's quirky cast of residents and fall a little bit more in love with the little town. The book carries Jack and Melinda's story forward as well because, of course, it all starts with them.

It must also be said that Therese Plummer is as much a part of Virgin River as Jack's Bar. She doesn't have a wide range of voices, but something about her narration takes me into the characters in a way that just reading cannot do. I have read several of them, and they just don't "come alive" for me the way Plummer brings them to life when I listen to her read them.

This isn't heavy reading, but it's great story-telling. Enjoy.

Read it again and again!

Where does Second Chance Pass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have read not only this Virgin River series, but all her other related series as well. You can't go wrong with a Robyn Carr story. Keep hoping for a continuation of the tales begun in Virgin River. What became of the families that began with second chances for love. How is Jack's group of fellow Marines now lifelong friends doing?

What was one of the most memorable moments of Second Chance Pass?

The love Mel and Jack have for one another that spans out to include every one they come in contact with ... Jack almost losing Mel after childbirth and Jack showing up after every one thinking he had been lost in the big fire. The whole series brings me from laughter to tears several times within the same book

What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

For me she is part of the story. When I hear her narrate anything else the character in this series come to mind.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Don't give up on love especially if you live in or near Virigin River or know one of the Marines in Jack's band of brothers.

Any additional comments?

Need more stories from and about Virgin River.
