After eight years, Carr returns to the mountain town of Virgin River with this long-awaited series entry (following My Kind of Christmas) that will delight longtime fans and also serve as an introduction for new readers. Thriller author Kaylee Sloan has writer’s block after the death of her mother. Hoping for a cure and to mend her heart and also get through her first Christmas without her beloved parent, Kaylee seeks refuge in the familiar village of Virgin River. But immediately upon arrival, her plans are upset and she ends up staying in a rental owned by local craftsman Landry. Landry himself is mourning the loss of his own father, and confiding in Kaylee, he finally feels ready to be freed from his past, as the two develop a close friendship that quickly evolves into much more.
VERDICT This heartwarming tale of friendship and romance is the perfect addition to this well-loved series made newly popular by its recent adaptation on Netflix. Fans of sweet love stories will enjoy this tale of overcoming overwhelming grief to find hope in the most unexpected of places.
