Series: Virgin River bk 16
by Robyn Carr
Genre: Contemporary Romance
This year, Becca Timm knows the number one item on her Christmas wish list—getting over Denny Cutler. Three years ago, Denny broke her heart before heading off to war. It’s time she got over her silly high-school relationship and moved on.
So she takes matters into her own hands and heads up to Virgin River, the rugged little mountain town that Denny calls home, as an uninvited guest on her brother’s men-only hunting weekend. But when an accident turns her impromptu visit into an extended stay, Becca finds herself stranded in Virgin River. With Denny. In very close quarters.
As the power of Christmas envelops the little town, Becca discovers that the boy she once loved has become a strong and confident man. And the most delicious Christmas present she can imagine.
Robyn Carr is my Nora Roberts of romance, my go to author for a good book where you feel at home with the writing style and characters. I was super lucky to meet Robyn at RomCon this year and she gave me an ARC of this book. Personally Robyn is a super classy, funny lady who adores and loves her fans. I was going to save this book for a snowy weekend to read, but just couldn’t wait and read it in September.
This is Denny and Becca’s story – for the readers who have read all of the Virgin Riverbooks Denny is the kid that his dying mom told him Jack was his dad. Denny’s been in Virgin Riverfor awhile working at Jillian’s Farm and Jack’s bar. He did two separate tours in the war, and before going back the 2nd time he broke things off from his long time love Becca.
Becca plots to go toVirgin Riverwith her brother to try and resolve things with Denny so she can move on with her life and boyfriend. Becca breaks her ankle and is forced to stay inVirgin Riverlonger than her planned week stay. (I’m a huge sucker for stranded storylines). While staying in VR, she gets involved with the Christmas pageant and starts to help the kids with afterschool homework. She is an unemployed teacher, so this is her passion.
I think what I liked most about his book was first – no misunderstandings between Denny and Becca. When they had something to say, they said it and dealt with it. Second – I loved Becca’s mom. At first I thought she was going to be written a different way and was pleasantly surprised with how supportive and loving she was with Becca.
Of course many of the previous characters make appearances in this book but the best thing about it is that it can be read as a stand alone. In my opinion you don’t have to read all of theVirgin Riverbooks to enjoy this book.
