Bring Me Home for Christmas by Robyn Carr

Virgin River, how I adore thee! For those who have been previously exposed to the Virgin River series, this is already a must-read. For those of you who haven't, let me tell you a little about the town. Although it isn't exactly quaint or a thriving metropolis, and you wouldn't be able to tell it from any other town just by looking at it, what grows at the heart of Virgin River is what keeps people returning. This town is filled with people who actually care about one another. It's the epitome of what living should be, where you know your neighbors and you're never left alone to fend for yourself. Don't get me wrong, there are characters in the town that don't actually include themselves, but this is a strong community that looks out for each other.

In this book, we get to see all of our favorite characters return (I love you, Jack!) but we also get to meet some new ones. This book focuses on Denny. Denny is ex-military and after his life fell apart; he sought refuge in Virgin River and found a home he never wants to leave. This town has become his family. When he sets up a fishing and hunting trip for some of his friends the last thing he expects is his best friend's sister to tag along. She just happens to be the love of his life but things didn't go exactly as planned. Becca, the ex, is along for the ride seeking closure. Even though she has a great new love in her life, she just can't get Denny out of her head.

While we watch Denny and Becca sort through old wounds and try to make amends, or at least figure out how to be in the same room without making people want to smack them, we get to live in Virgin River for a bit of the Christmas season. This is a fast-paced read that leaves you with that heart-warming feeling that you're exactly where you belong. Loved it!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
