I have listened to this whole series on audio book and I love the narrator Terese Plummer. She is one of my favorite narrators. Every book in this series makes me more in love with the town of Virgin River. I really wish this town actually existed because I would want to live there. I loved this story between Angie and Patrick and love how the families all intertwined together. I hope she isn't done with this series because I can't wait for the next one! I give this story 5 stars.
