Shelter Mountain by Robyn Carr | Book Review

Overall I loved this story and it was so much fun getting to spend more time with some great characters I have come to love. That said I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because of some pretty disappointing story choices. They were very disappointing, but the fact that I still gave a 4 out of 5 shows how much I enjoyed most of the story, and really, how much I love the characters and setting of this book. The end of the book was full of exciting page turning action that was fun to read. I will be reading the next one in the series. Let's hope the writer doesn't take any easy outs this time. When I started the first book in this series it was because I had just finished a bunch of Stephen King and I needed something totally different. It's funny, but I think Robyn Carr shares her best strength with Stephen King - characterization. She writes characters I love, and he writes characters that carry me through a sometimes slow story. The difference is that Stephen King can write circles around Robyn Carr, his prose makes hers seem dull and flat - but I absolutely love her characters and I can't stop reading so she's got that skill. I have to find out what happens to her characters. I'm sure as I continue to read through her books I'll find her skills at crafting prose develop, but in the mean time I love her characters enough to HAVE to know what happens to them in the next book. I never thought I would EVER find myself reading a romance series, but I truly enjoy these books. If anything I'm hoping to learn how she has managed to write so many books in a series. It is pretty mind blowing that her latest, Redwood Bend, is Virgin River book 18! That is a lot of books! So I'll keep reading out of my genres to keep finding out what happens next with her great characters that she does a decent job of writing about.
