Review & Giveaway: Bring Me Home for Christmas by Robyn Carr (CLOSED)

First line: Rich Timm drove into Virgin River a mere ten hours after leaving San Diego.

From the back cover: 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 envelopes 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.

My thoughts: This is the 16th book in Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and while I have only read the first two books in the series so far, I jumped at the opportunity to read and review this one. Maybe because it's a Christmas story or maybe just because I knew I would enjoy it, but it did leave me wanting to go back and read the rest that I have missed.

Bring Me Home for Christmas reminds us of the true spirit of the season. It brings back many of the characters we know and love and we get to see the town come together when needed. Of course, some of the characters that were new to me were probably introduced in an earlier book, but nonetheless, I still was able to get into the spirit of the book.

While stuck in Virgin River due to an unfortunate accident, Becca has time to reevaluate her life and what she really wants. For Denny, he is given the chance to make amends for the way he ended things with Becca three years ago. As the two are forced to spend time together, they really take the time to speak their minds when needed - something that we don't often see. At the same time, Becca is able to finally heal the rift between her and her mother, something that was a long time coming.

I really enjoy reading this series and will definitely be trying to catch up - I still have to read books three through fifteen - hopefully all before the next three books come out earlier next year! One of my favorite parts of the series is that it allows you a glimpse into a simpler way of life, away from the hustle and bustle of city living, where neighbors and friends actually look out for each other.

I received a complimentary copy of Bring Me Home for Christmas by Robyn Carr from Eric at  Planned Television Arts.
