I absolutely love Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series and each time I open one of her books I get a warm fuzzy feeling. My Kind of Christmas did exactly that and I enjoyed reading Patrick and Angie’s story. For those of you with your jaw still hanging open at the thought of twenty books in a series; relax. While it is wonderful seeing all the different townsfolk and knowing their stories, you can easily read them as standalone. Each introduced a new couple and their story. I began reading this after dinner Tuesday night which was a mistake. I know once I open her books that I cannot put them down. I found myself up till 2:32 am on a work night! I did that whole “just one more chapter” thing till I got my HEA. * facepalm* I will say it was worth it and I do not regret getting only four hours sleep!
Sunrise Point by Robin Carr takes us back to the wooded hills of Virgin River. This is the nineteenth book in the Virgin River series. If you follow my reviews you know this is one of my favorite small-town contemporary romance series. I was delighted that Carr brought us Nora Crane’s story. Carr delivers a heart-felt romance built on friendship and trust.
In Redwood Bend, we get to know Katie Malone and her twins better. In the last novel, Hidden Summit we met and fell in love with her brother Conner. After the danger has passed, she decides to bring her boys to Virgin River to be closer to their uncle Conner. Katie is an Army widow, and a recent encounter with her boss, has made her step back and reevaluate her non-existent love life. I loved this novel and feel in love with the characters and a new place called Payne, Montana.
I pre-ordered Hidden Summit and was ecstatic when it appeared on my Nook Tablet. As I have stated before this is one of my favorite contemporary romance series. Carr has a gift for spinning delightful tales about this small California mountain town. Each time I visit, she brings fresh characters and a storyline that captures me from page one.
As with any of Robyn Carr’s books I pre-ordered Bring Me Home for Christmas. The Virgin River series is one of my all time favorites. I have a fondness for it that can best be described as, “that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you slip into your favorite comfy jeans and snuggle up to the one you love on a cold lazy Sunday afternoon.” If Virgin Rivers was a real place, I would move there. The scenic beauty and the caring families who reside here have found a little slice of heaven on Earth.
Here Comes Trouble is the second book in Erin Kern’s Trouble series. Each book can be read as a standalone. This novel is a contemporary romance set in Wyoming. The novel does have some editing issues, but not enough to deter from the overall reading experience.
