Welcome back to VIRGIN RIVER with the books that started it all.
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 college 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. Look for "What We Find" by Robyn Carr, a powerful story of healing, new beginnings and one woman's journey to finding the happiness she's long been missing. Order your copy today!"
4 Stars! Another lovely addition to the Virgin River series.
This book centers around ex-marine Denny Cutler, one of the town’s newest residents. His search for his biological father brought him here months ago and he chose to stay. His marine buddies are coming to Virgin River for a visit and to partake in some outdoor activities. One of those friends is Rich Timm and along for the ride is Becca, his sister, and Denny’s ex. She tricks her brother into bringing her along, but her real intention is to see Denny. Her current boyfriend Doug is visiting his family for Thanksgiving and has no idea what she’s up to. Becca regrets her bitter break-up with Denny and wants some closure before she takes the next step with Doug, marriage.
I’ve loved Denny since he made his appearance in Virgin River and was excited to read his story. Becca’s sneaky ways annoyed me initially, but once she came clean with Denny, Doug, and her family, I really admired her. She’s never stopped loving Denny, he is the man that stole her heart years ago and never gave it back!
Slow to start, the book picks up and Denny and Becca re-discover one another. However, what made this read for me was the involvement of all the characters that we’ve met over the years. At the heart of this addictive series is Jack Sheridan, and we get a lot of him in this book…YUM, along with Preacher, another favorite Virgin River resident of mine. Their families and all the wonderful residents celebrate the holidays, small-town American style. It just warms your soul how they pull together to ensure that no one is left out or forgotten during the holiday season.
The book was somewhat mellow and the ending anticlimactic, but none the less, very charming and it was good to be back in Virgin River, it always feels like coming home!
