Publisher's Summary

Contemporary romance fans hold a special place in their hearts for New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr’s Virgin River novels—set in a quiet town nestled deep in California Redwood territory. The 17th entry in the series, Hidden Summit stars Leslie Petruso and Conner Danson, two people burned by love and ready to give up on the whole proposition. But the chemistry between them is impossible to deny, and if everyone in town can see it, why can’t they?

Featured Article: Virgin River—The Definitive Explainer


Before it was adapted into a Netflix show, Virgin River was a series of more than 20 novels by New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr. The audiobooks, all read by Audie Award-winning narrator Thérèse Plummer, are well-loved by a wide audience. The series takes place in Virgin River and revolves around new resident Melinda Monroe, a nurse practitioner and midwife. There's more to this sleepy town than first appearances suggest.

Good story, good narration...

The Virgin River series is just so good. Every story has romance, suspense and a beautiful Happily Ever After. The main couple Connor and Leslie were just perfect for each other and they are both good people so I was definitely rooting for them. And then again this series has very likable recurrent characters specially Jack and Preacher. I've fallen in love with the whole town on Virgin River and I'm sad to know that it will soon come to an end.

Narration: it's Therese Plummer. By now the name speaks for itself. She is just one of the best narrators. There's no way she can possibly get less than four stars for her narration. She has an uncanny ability to portray each character so distinctively. This story has several men, women and even children as characters and you could differentiate them all.

I definitely recommend the Virgin River series and ANY book narrated by Therese Plummer. Very credit worthy.

Usual Robyn Carr story

Liked the book, it is the usual easy listening, takes you to another place that we are use to. I was thrilled she finally stopped using "delicious" in every romance scene, I don't think she used it once, which was good for me because I couldn't stand it. I was also thrilled to get no lectures on safe sex, it was becoming most annoying. No huge surprises in the book, the usual easy listening of Virgin River and Therese Plummer does these books well.

Another Virgin Rivers Winner!!

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

I recommend the Virgin River series to all my friends! There is enough descriptions of characters in each book so they can be read our of sequence, however, I recommend my friends start from the beginning and then I watch as they become hooked on this town like I am. Therese Plummer does an excellent job of narrating the characters. Connie and Leslie's story fit right in with what I have come to expect in Virgin Rivers.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how Leslie overcame the hurt she suffered from a stupid ex-husband and realize that it was him - not her!

Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

Gosh! I can't say - she does such a good job with each character until I can identify who the character is even though I might not have heard her identify the person. She is outstanding! I don't know if someone else could do it as well as she can.

Who was the most memorable character of Hidden Summit and why?

It had to be Leslie. I loved her being able to stand up to her ex when he came to talk to her about them "being friends" and she running him away with the fire extinguisher.

Any additional comments?

Just a great book! I have all the books on my IPOD. I have listened to the entire series at least three times. I drove across country and started with Virgin Rivers and was able to go through 6 of the books while traveling. Only regret is that they are not available as soon as they are published. I have already read the book on my Nook before they are recorded.

You gotta love Virgin River

The narrator was, as always, wonderful. The story was just what you would think from Robyn Carr and this series. A great escape to a place that would be wonderful to live. Anxious for the next title, wonder if it will be Patrick Riordan's story, maybe with someone's sister? Oh how I love that town and the wonderful sensitive men and wonderful confident women.

absolutely adored it!

okay. this is one of those series that I've come back to, time and time again. I used to revisit it when it was in the Audible Romance/Escape packages, but since that was discontinued, I've been blowing credits so I NEVER have to go without Virgin River, ever again.

So very good

This one is excellent. Pulls the story out of virgin river more than the others, the puts it back where peace is found. This one is going to be a favorite. Narrator is excellent.

end felt like reached my 50K words, done

so enjoying the story then, wrap it up all done.

even checked against the physical hard copy to ensure I hadn't inadvertently gotten the abridged version.

I loved this story, the characters were so well developed they could have been reaĺ.

plot was intriguing and building steadily.

worth listening to even with the abrupt end.

Are you sure?

Not the best in the series. I should have counted how many times the phrase "are you sure?" was said.
