    4 ½ Feel Good Stars My favorite in the series Unlike the other books this one focused only on the main couple The other couplescharacters that we've grown to love over the course of the series didn't take up page time like they normally do and I loved thatThese books are the perfect getting into the holiday spirit type of read They have a uaint almost Hallmark movie type feel to them that leaves me feeling uplifted That said I don't think I'd have the patience to read them as they're not as couple centered as I prefer in my romances However I've loved listening to them as I go about my day

    This was a really sweet tender romance that had me in tears sometimes but put a smile on my face at the endThis is the story of Marcie Sullivan a young widow and former Marine Ian Buchanan Marcie recently lost her Marine husband Bobby due to injuries he suffered while serving in Ira Bobby and Marcie were childhood buddies then sweethearts before marrying as teenagers Bobby enlisted in the military while Marcie worked in an insurance office They were in love and had a bright future ahead of them until one day Bobby was severly injured in Ira from a car bomb explosion If it wasn't for his Sergeant and best friend Ian Buchanan who hauled him to safety amidst enemy fire he surely would have died on the streets of Fallujah And even though Bobby never recovered from his injuries and basically was totally incapacitated Marcie was grateful for the additional three years she got to spend taking care of Bobby and just being with him It's been a year since Bobby's death and Marcie would like to move forward with her life and get a little closure But in order to do that she needs to track down her husband's best friend from the military Ian Buchanan and thank him again for saving Bobby and give him a few momentos she thinks Bobby would like him to have It might be a tall order because it seems Ian has dropped off the face of the earthSince that day in Fallujah 4 years ago Ian's life hasn't been the same He had planned to serve 20 years in the Marines but after he saved Bobby and sentenced him to a life as a total invalid he suffered such enormous guilt that he let it wreck his life and his career Once a well liked and respected man with a bright future he broke up with his fiancee got in meaningless fights with other soldiers and was basically forced out of the Marines He wishes he had let Bobby die in Fallujah thinking he has sentenced him and his family to grief than they would have suffered if he had just died on the battlefield Ian decides to just drop out of life for a while living a minimal existence selling firewood on a mountaintop near the small California town of Virgin RiverWith a little luck and some dogged persistence Marcie tracks Ian to the uaint little town of Virgin River She hears rumors about a mountain man who likes to whistle and sing and lives hermit like in a small cabin just outside of town Could this be Ian?When Marcie meets up with Ian he is almost unrecognizable from the picture of the handsome man she carries with her With his dark hair tied back in a long ponytail a bushy red beard and wearing tattered clothes and living in a small one room cabin without indoor plumbing Ian looks and acts like a dropout from life He tells Marcie he just wants to be left alone but of course Marcie being the stubborn girl she is will not hear of it She's determined to break through all the walls Ian has placed around himself She only has a few weeks before she's due home for Christmas will that be enough time for her to convince Ian to rejoin the world and start living again? And can she help Ian heal his wounded heart? And will Marcie learn something about herself in the process?While this wasn't my favorite of all the Virgin River books it certainly was enjoyable It was fun to revisit that small California town again after Marcie's first encounter with some of the residents it was like I never left Some of the past characters have small roles including Preacher and Paige Mike and Brie Doc and with larger roles Mel and Jack possible spoiler I like that a romance between Marcie and Ian didn't happen right away although now that I think of it 10 days is pretty fast But it just seemed that Marcie and Ian got to know a lot about each other in that time and each also knew a lot about the other through Bobby's letters home and Marcie's letters to Bobby And once Ian came home with a hair cut and a closely trimmed beard I knew the fireworks would start to happen between the two And they did they provided a lot of 'heat' for that small one room cabin There were some tear jerking moments too when Marcie relates the circumstances of Bobby's death and when Ian lets Marcie go home for Christmas I wanted him to beg her to stay The ending was heart warming and beautiful but I could have used a few pages to let me in on what would happen in the future But that is not a problem I'm sure Robyn Carr will cover that ground in her next Virgin River novel titled Second Chance Pass due out in February 2009 That's one I can't wait to read

    I'm not sure of the circumstances of this book's release but it was about a hundred pages shorter than the one previous It definitely had a 'novella' feel to it and there weren't really any side stories going on so I'm thinking it might have appeared first in an anthologyNo matter it's very good and might even be my favorite of the first four A young widow is searching for her late husband's former best friend who has dropped off the map entirely after leaving the Marine CorpsIan Buchanan has become your basic mountain man He saved his best friend Bobby's life in Falluja only to find that Bobby had ended up a uadriplegic in what amounted to a persistent vegetative state Just the boot to kick Ian into emotional and mental chaos Marcie is a little firebrand who needs closure after three years of nursing Bobby until his final peaceful breath I was really impressed with this character She was funny loving compassionate incredibly strong and stubborn than anything Definitely my favorite character of the series so far and probably in the top five female characters I've read this year It was fascinating to see this person who basically made the world turn for so many being thought of as the one who needed to be handled with fragile care She naturally chafes at it as much as the reader does for her and it makes for some pretty good moments I cried reading this than any of the others This was a really excellently written story I thought and the joy of the romance against the backdrop of grief and isolation was very satisfyingIt loses half a star for no epilogue I rounded up It ends right before something I feel we either needed to see or hear about after the fact Perhaps these two show up again in the rest of the series I certainly hope so but don't tell me but I want to know what happened next It felt like the story was unfinishedBut if you make it this far in the series there's no way you're NOT going to read on so just enjoy

    One of the best romance books ever This was my second time reading A Virgin River Christmas and yall this book You need to read this book It's everything The Gist Marcie's husband died a year ago after being injured while deployed And she's determined to find his best friend and the man who risked everything to save him years earlier and then disappeared Seriously Marcie and Ian They're incredible Marcie is a force to be reckoned with She's lovely and kind Sweet fiery full of faith and hope Has a will of steel She was wonderful And Ian He's such a good man but lost His life fell apart years earlier and to cope with it he ran and became or less a recluse Living tucked away in the mountains in a rustic cabin with no electricity or comforts He's hard working but keeps to himself Cut off from anything gentle or easy from nearly all forms of relationships He's resourceful uiet and underneath his wild mountain man exterior he's gentle and caring and lonely Their romance was very slow going They're both dealing with such loss and having trouble moving on Finding who they are and used to be Marcie having to get him to even let her in the door and then slowly over the weeks pulling out of him Getting him to talk to leave his mountain to enjoy things and reconnect with people It was just incredible and touching Seeing them form a connection again and finally find a way to heal from the loss of her husband and his best friend They have a total beauty and the beast vibe going My only issue was that Carr cannot get Marine right Half the time it's not capitalized and it should ALWAYS be capitalized no matter if it's the branch or the individual But other than that A Virgin River Christmas is a moving romance that'll bring you to tears and leave you full of hope and wonder Really you just need to read this one You need to meet these two See their journey and their incredible strength and resilience It's such an experience and a simple review can't do it justice

    45 StarsThis was a thoroughly enjoyable read — my first e book actually I read it on my computer using Kindle for Mac Because I just don't spend enough time with my computer you know?This book tells the story of Ian Buchanan an emotionally scarred former Marine and Marcie Sullivan widow of Ian's best friend who died from injuries sustained while at war despite Ian's attempt to save him Set in the snowy mountains above Virgin River it brings together so many things that make the Virgin River series so enjoyable — the remote mountain setting the sense of community and the strong men and women who make up that communityMarcie has been searching for Ian feeling that there is unfinished business between them As her husband's best friend Ian should have been there during the three years her husband lingered between life and death Instead Ian had vanished Marcie wants to know why — and she wants to give him her husband's baseball card collection Truth is she's not sure why she's searching for him She is driven by needs she doesn't completely understandThe man she meets is not the man she remembers With a heavy beard and a nasty temper Ian has been hiding in a cabin in the mountains living an unadorned life as a hermit — no ties no toilet no contact with the outside world Ian knows who Marcie is — he met her at one point when he came back from the war while her husband was in a long term care facility — but he wants nothing to do with her He does his best to drive her away and acting a bit nuts in the processBut Marcie becomes ill and Ian has no choice but to take care of her The ten days that follow as she regains her health transform both of them Watching Marcie and Ian face their shared pain together finding love and healing in each other's arms was wonderful even if Marcie at times seemed a little too perfect The love story is sweet as are the love scenes The emotion feels genuine I found myself forgiving Marcie's PITA older sister Erin as I learned why she was a PITA It was great to see the other characters again — Mel and Jack; Paige and Preacher; Doc etc I haven't read Brie and Mark Venezuela's story yet The sense of community that permeates these stories is so addictive Who wouldn't want to live in a town where everyone cared about everyone else? Heck I'd pack my junk tomorrow if I knew of such a place It's pretty far removed from the world I know I must sayI love to read Christmas themed romances but most often I read historicals There's something about the Christmas season that makes historicals particularly enjoyable This is the first contemporary romance I've read with a Christmas theme and I enjoyed it I still prefer Christmas historicals but then historicals are what I love to read most anywayFor those who haven't read the Virgin River series or who've read only a few this book stands alone I think a person could read it and then go back and pick up at the beginningOver all a very enjoyable and satisfying read I will admit to sneaking some reading time in while at work D'oh

    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 othersA 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 ideasI 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

    Opening Line Marcie Sullivan drove into the small town her sixth small mountian town of the day and found herself face to face with a Christmas tree trimmingAVRC is my first Robyn Carr book which would make meyou guessed it a Robyn Carr virgin Anyways this isn’t the type of contemporary romance I usually read I like a bit of action suspense or the occasional vampire in my mix However the Virgin River series is so hugely popular and was recommended to me by a ton of people so I just had to check it out And I’m happy to say that except for the author’s unusual fixation with an outhouse I got sucked right into this heart tugging romance Enough so that I didn’t want to read anything else when I finished and have gone back to start the series at the beginningYes this is book #4 in a series of 13 and counting however that doesn't seem to have any bearing on this particular story I think because it’s a special Christmas edition Sure there were a few characters I might have enjoyed if I’d know their ‘story’ but this stood just fine on its own and centered pretty much solely on Ian and Marcie’s heartbreaking journey of love and healing The best word I could use to describe Robyn Carr’s writing is comfortable It’s just relaxed and easy and felt like I was reading about friends or I imagine if you’re well into the series like coming home Carr never once had me shaking my head thinking that’s wrong or ridiculous or the Hh would never do that The story flows very well too is funny in parts and heart wrenching in others and except for letting the outhouse become a character of its own left me wanting I feel like Carr could become the sort of author I’d pick up when nothing else is striking my fancy and know that I’d enjoy it Marcie Sullivan is looking for closure; she’s come to Virgin River to find her husbands Sergeant and best friend The man responsible for saving Bobby in Ira and giving her three years to say goodbye while he slowly died from his battle injuries As Marcie cared for her husband she forged a friendship through letters with his sergeant Ian pouring out her heart frustrations and sadness to a man she’d never met Then suddenly the letters stopped and soon her husband was gone too Now a year later Marcie still can’t seem to move on with her life she’s decided she has to find Ian To talk to him about what happened over there and make sure he‘s okayBut locating Ian hasn’t been easy nobody’s seen him for years and his family has all but written him off After following several leads Marcie at last finds her hero but he doesn’t want to be found and definitely doesn’t want to be reminded of Ira Ian’s living far off the grid of society a recluse in a rundown cabin in the woods with no amenities Yes that’s right anouthouse dun dun dah Ian Growls at Marcie to leave him alone sounding much like the bear he now resembles what with all that hair but Marcie refuses to go until she completes her mission Of course this leads to her almost freezing to death catching hypothermia and Ian having to save and care for her until she’s better It is a romance after allMarcie’s character is a bit of a goof and I really liked her and her adventures with living in a rustic cabin I found it odd though that suffering a burn from not knowing how to light propane stove was hilarious while a flucold was a matter of life and death? I also didn’t find this uite as romantic as I’m sure others will as I have lived in the bush without power and it loses its appeal mighty fast especially in the winter So while some might think it uaint that they cook on a woodstove and read by candlelight I cringed Anyways you don’t need to know much else all the townsfolk turn up in one way or another and Marcie and Ian forge into a new type of friendship one with benefits Oh and it all happens right around Christmas Sigh

    Overall book rating 38Audio Book NABook Cover 35So I did the Wendy thing and started this series at book 4 Totally oblivious to the fact that it’s based on a series Needless to say I ended up checking out the series because who can resist troubled marines and a small mountain town right?This the series as well as the book has a very Hallmark feeling about it Just warm and fuzzy and boy did I catch myself running through 5 or 6 episodes after my ‘sample’ I’m thinking this might not be the best I’ve read but in the time we are currently finding ourselves in it’s just what I need Just feel good warm fuzzy Good old fashioned romance Ps Loving Jack and Mel in the series
