4 stars-- Bring Me Home for Christmas (Virgin River #14) by Robyn Carr

One of my favorite places to visit is Virgin River at Christmas. It's magical!
The Gist: Becca never got over her ex, Denny. It's been years and she's with a new guy but the past still haunts her so she crashes her brother's hunting weekend with the guys to finally put things to rest with Denny (one of her brother's friends and hunting buddies). 
Yeah, so I was nervous about this one at first because not my thing. So I was hesitant and a bit slow to get on board with things. BUT it worked out and didn't cross lines that shouldn't be crossed so things were good.

I really liked Denny. He's a good guy. Was lost for a while but found a place in life and in Virgin River. Works hard, has a plan, gives generously. I loved him and how he was with people. Becca it took me a minute but in the end I really liked her, too. She's a teacher and a bit lost herself. Has to get over the past and herself. She's sweet and has a way with kids. Has a kind heart.

The romance was a little slow going. Some animosity at the start. Lots of past hurts and mess ups to get past. The attraction. The fact she had a boyfriend (it was resolved before things happened, no worries). They were good together once they figured things out. A little steam and lots of caring. Working on things and figuring out how to move on and grow as individuals and a couple. It was sweet.

All in all, Bring Me Home for Christmas was a good story. It made me fall in love with Virgin River all over again. This town doesn't have much financially, maybe, but they have spirit and generous hearts and are always there for anyone in need. They're just amazing people doing the best they can in their little corner of the world.  It really is a magical town especially during Christmas.

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.
