"She is my all-time guilty pleasure. My beautiful daughter buys me the audio version on CD and during the pandemic I have listened to them several times. Thanks Ms. Carr!"

A second added: "So excited! Can't wait!", as a third agreed: "That's exciting news… but not sure I can wait that long, guess I'll be rereading all your other books while I wait."

The release of A Family Affair in the spring will no doubt come as a welcome interim for Robyn Carr and Virgin River fans as they await the fourth instalment of the TV adaptation, which is thought to be landing on Netflix later this year.

It will also soften the blow for fans following setbacks the drama series has faced recently due to filming being postponed.

Alexandra Breckenridge, who plays the lead role of Mel Monroe in the show, took to Instagram earlier this month telling fans that production on season five had been halted. "We were supposed to start [filming] in March," she began, adding: "But it was pushed so... I don't know. I don't know man."
