I am new to Robyn Carr,but this story like Virgin River that I did read.It is WONDERFUL. Turn off the phone and TV get a hot cup of tea,coco and sit back and go to Virign Rivers.
It is a place you would want to go and visit or move. So really you won't want to read the last page...
This was a 4th book in the Virgin River series. While all of the old characters make appearances in it, they are not as frequent as in the other books. This is sort of like an "in between" novel. The two main characters are brand new and have never shown up in previous storylines. You don't have to read this one to keep up with the main VR series but it is an enjoyable story and deffinately worth the time!!!

I recently have become addicted to Robyn Carr's novels. The Virgin River series is amazing. I contemplated skipping this one because I thought it was just another Christmas story. I was wrong! DON'T SKIP THIS ONE! It takes places during Whispering Rock & all your favorite characters (Jack, Preacher, Mel,..) are there. A beautiful story that adds to the series wonderfully.
I've read all of Robyn's series and was so excited when I saw this book at the book store. The story was fine, but I didn't enjoy it was much as the others in the series. But it was great to see the other characters like Mel and Preacher. I'm really looking forward to "Second Chance Pass"...Paul and Vanessa's story.
I didn't think I was going to like this book at first due to the letter from the author at the beginning of the book. I usually don't like books that 'veer' away from the series. I am happy to admit I am glad I didn't put it away. I loved the characters Marcie and Ian. And I am glad the familiar characters were here too. I would recommend this to anyone who is reading the series.
