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.
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. An the most delicious
Christmas present she can imagine.
Comment: I am keeping up with this series. This was the next installment to go through and once more I found a story with powerful scenes and emotions and was quite glad with it.
This is the story of Becca Timm, she travels to Virgin River to check on Denny Cutler and put him over her life because she wants to move on. But an accident stops from leaving and she gets to talk and know the new Denny and she finds out that, after all, things aren't as solves as that. While she deals with her feelings for Denny she meets a welcoming town and even the idea that might change her life...
I liked this story. I don't consider it my favorite but I enjoyed the feel of Christmas and holidays a lot and even more the feel of a small town welcoming someone from the outside but always with respect. It sounds a lot more easy and perfect than the realistic reality I'm sure!
This author always does a great job of creating larger than life characters that fight for what they want, who deal with things mostly in a very adult and responsible way...I sometimes feel some things are a little too perfect, but honestly, I can't really say this is a bad thing.
This story in particular was very warm because it talked about second chances. Things weren't finished between Becca and Denny and although I don't tend to enjoy romances where previous lovers reunite again, I think the author does a good enough job to distract me of that notion, especially considering the setting and the community around those two. The focus isn't only them and what happened before and that helped too.
I liked how Becca seemed to work out well for the town too. Sometimes some characters show up and we don't have the feeling they are rally suitable for the plot or the genre or the idea of the story and we think if he/she could be different...but in Becca's case I liked her enough to think she was good for the story and amazingly she found a place that worked well for her and the others too.
The romance was cute and full of beautiful moments... Like I said I don't like this type of stories that much but in this case it wasn't so bad. I liked that they talked and worked things out without much drama.
All in all, a good enough romance.
Like I said to someone, these books are more about the cozy feelings they can make us feel and how hope is real after reading such light drama things...we can hope even in the worst moments, something good is out there!
