Solid Christmas Romance

A Virgin River Christmas - Robyn Carr

A great installment in the series before it started going a bit downhill for me. This book follows Marcie Sullivan as she tries to find the man (Ian Buchanan) who saved her now dead husband who is holed up in Virgin River. I honestly loved the character of Marcie and I enjoyed how she and Ian get together. Seeing how the small town comes together to celebrate Christmas together was really good too. We have appearances by my nemesis Jack and his wife Mel, and of course Paige and Preacher and others.


"A Virgin River Christmas" has widow Marcie Sullivan tracking down Ian Buchanan. When she gets to the wilds of Virgin River and realizes it won't be smooth going, she refuses to go home, she vows to stay and make sure that Ian comes back to the land of the living. Ian's life since being injured hasn't been great. He is angry and no longer in the Marines. He just wants to be left alone. Marcie though has other ideas.

I just had a great time watching Marcie and Ian bounce off of each other before they finally let go and just got together. Carr doesn't write steamy love scenes (in my opinion) but it was great to read how Marcie and Ian finally get together.
