Riordan is a Navy pilot After his best friend and wingman is killed in a mission over Afghanistan, he s been given leave to deal with the stress and assess his career It was really lovely to go back to Virgin River for a while and catch up with everyone I d forgotten how much I love these stories Because I haven t read the past few titles there were some people that I didn t recognise, but that was no real problem Jack and Mel, Preacher and Paige, Mike and Brie and others make appearances, some just briefly Jack is Angie s uncle and plays a bigger role Paddy is the youngest of the five Riordan brothers and the last to get his HEA He s always been the most stable and settled But with the death of his friend and his friend s widow to look after, and being dumped by his girlfriend, Paddy is in desperate need of some RR Angie may be a bright but she s socially awkward, always striving academically But her warmth, strength and love of life quickly draws Paddy in Theirs is a sweet and gradual falling in love and written believably.These Virgin River contemporary romances are comfortable reads This one s no different and I don t think it offers up anything new Maybe the town of Virgin River is a little too rosy and both Angie and Paddy just too good, and the stories just a little too predictable But this was still a really sweet read Bottom line, I enjoyed it a lot.Steam 2.5

of fresh air She spots Patrick as he s watching her, while the residents are raising the annual Christmas tree in the town center They make eye contact, and you know the saying you had me at hello , well it applies here They dive head first into a relationship full well knowing that it will come to an end when Patrick heads back to his life in the Navy, and embarks on promises made to his fallen comrade and best friend Neither has any expectations, but never anticipated to have so much in common and to feel the sparks of love While they have different reasons for coming to Virgin River, finding that special someone was not in the plan Angie wants to experiencebecause of a near brush with death and contemplates her life, while Patrick is having trouble moving forward because of a death he s witnessed and deems himself responsible for He s hell bent on keeping promises made, even though he s misconstrued the meaning of them Through it all they are supportive of one another, enjoy their time spent, are totally taken by each other, but know that letting go was part of the deal or is it In true Virgin River style, there is a hardship story that involves a family that was initially presented in previous books Angie takes them under her wing and it becomes her mission to find the funds for young Megan s much needed surgery What I loved most about this book is that we got to visit with so many of our favorite characters, which adds to the sense of familiarity and made for many humorous moments throughout the book We get to go back to Jack s bar, a setting that I always enjoy I can almost taste Preacher s home cooking, feel the warmth of the fire, the hum of chatter, the laughter, all while enjoying an ice cold beer I am among friends and it feels good The ending was sugary sweet, sappy, romantic and just PERFECT Oh and as usual Jack was right and always has the last word go figure Overall this was a truly enjoyable read that brings home the meaning of family, and the understanding that sometimes tragic events have a way of showing us the true meaning of life and what is really important Grab onto happiness and love when you find it, because our time on this earth is so shortARC courtesy or HarlequinMira via NetGalley Oh my my myone of the best books of the series I loved itLove those Riordan menand Patrick Paddy to his friends YUM And

forward to my next stay Virgin River has grown since its beginning and the inclusion of the Riordan brothers have been some of my favorite reads My Kind of Christmas includes the youngest Riordan brother, Patrick along with Jack s niece, Angie LeCroix Both have come to Virgin River seeking solitude They each have major decisions to make concerning their future And while different in content, their past includes pain Another common denominator is their limited time After a few short weeks, they ll be off again, jumping into their future with both feet running But there s a crimp in this visit and that is the burning hot chemistry between these two and it s not to be denied Soon, all thoughts of solitude are forgotten as they share their time together As the days fly by, time for Patrick and Angie is running out They each knew leaving was their future What they didn t expect was the depth of new feelings and how hard it would be to say goodbye This is another great installment in Robyn Carr s Virgin River series and one that I enjoyed Who can resist a sexy, hot Riordan and Angie is a heroine that I like and admire Real life issues are faced with courage and fortitude There s heartache and grief along with uplifting hope and renewal With all that is given the author still manages to make this a fun and at times a laugh out loud read She includes family moments that are so real to life they feel like my own Above all, it s a tender, touching love story with a charming HEA, all woven around family, friends and the Christmas Holidays If you ve never had the pleasure of visiting Virgin River, I would still recommend this holiday romance It s one of the best I ve read and though you won t have the background of the secondary characters, you ll not be lost For all

COULD MATCH THE ADRENALINE RUSH HE GETS FROM HIS JOB BUT THIS CHRISTMAS, PATRICK S PULSE IS REALLY RACINGThe Riordan brothers may have a reputation for being rough and tumble, but Patrick has always been the gentle, sweet natured one These days, his easygoing manner is being tested by his high octane career as a navy pilot But for the Riordan brothers, when the going gets tough the tough find the love of a good woman Except the woman who has caught Patrick s attention is Jack Sheridan s very attractive nieceAngie LeCroix comes to Virgin River to spend Christmas relaxing, away from her well intentioned but hovering mother Yet instead of freedom, she gets Jack Sheridan If her uncle had his way, she d never go out again And certainly not with rugged, handsome Patrick Riordan But Angie has her own idea of the kind of Christmas she wants and the kind of man Patrick and Angie thought they wanted to be left alone this Christmas until they meet each other Then they want to be left alone together But the Sheridan and Riordan families have different plans for Patrick and Angie and for Christmas, Virgin River style Meh This story never really took off for me Naval aviator Patrick Riordan is on a six week leave after suffering the loss of his best friend during a mission of which Patrick Paddy was the leader He s going through PTSD and grief and he has an unhealthy obsession with taking care of his best friend s widow and young son I get it, he s going through a horrible time and his actions aren t necessarily logical But then he needs to go through it His phone conversations with the aforementioned Meh This story never really took off for me Naval aviator Patrick Riordan is on a six week leave after suffering the loss of his best friend during a mission of which Patrick Paddy was the leader He s going through PTSD and grief and he has an unhealthy obsession with taking care of his best friend s widow and young son I get it, he s going through a horrible time and his actions aren t necessarily logical But then he needs to go through it His phone conversations with the aforementioned widow are redundant Again and again they say pretty much the same things to each other in a vaguely different way Nothing pushes him to the next stage of his transition We just go along the same track for the entire book Erstwhile med school student Angie LaCroix Jack Sheridan s niece is in town seeking recovery as well She suffered traumatic injuries in a serious car accident and now she s rethinking her original life s plan Just like Paddy They fit well together, I liked that they got along right away I liked Angie quite a bit, particularly when she was purposefully getting under her uncle s skin.But Paddy s story sucks the life out of it It was unemotional and just laid there until the very end When he was with Angie, it was great When he was in any other scene he was annoying and watered down Which was disappointing because he was a very promising leading man at the start My favorite Virgin River book is Virgin River Christmas I love a good holiday story and that one has all the appropriate angst and provides a powerful emotional arc for the hero as well as for the heroine This one has similar traits, but doesn t come close to measuring up 5 My Kind of Christmas StarsI am sad to see this series END Cries But what a way to go This

the narration a huge favorite of mine You don t have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it 3 to 4 starsThese books are the perfect getting into the holiday spirit type of read They have a quaint, almost Hallmark movie type feel to them that leaves me feeling uplifted That said, I don t think I d have the patience to read them, as they re not as couple centered as I prefer in my romances However, I ve loved listening to them as I go about my day.
