Review: My Kind of Christmas by Robyn Carr

My Kind of Christmas by Robyn Carr

Publisher: Harlequin MIRA 
Pages: 314 
Format: eARC 
Buy the Book: Amazon 

Goodreads:  Patrick Riordan always thougth that nothing could match the adrenaline rush he gets from his job.  But this Christmas, Patrick's pulse is really racing . . . 

The Riordan brothers may have a reputation for being rough-and tumble, but Patrick has always been the gentle, sweet-natured one. These days, his easygoing manner is being tested by his high-octane career as a navy pilot. But for the Riordan brothers, when the going gets tough…the tough find the love of a good woman.
Except the woman who has caught Patrick’s attention is Jack Sheridan’s very attractive niece.

Angie LeCroix comes to Virgin River to spend Christmas relaxing, away from her well-intentioned but hovering mother. Yet instead of freedom, she gets Jack Sheridan. If her uncle had his way, she’d never go out again. And certainly not with rugged, handsome Patrick Riordan. But Angie has her own idea of the kind of Christmas she wants—and the kind of man!

Patrick and Angie thought they wanted to be left alone this Christmas—until they meet each other. Then they want to be left alone together. But the Sheridan and Riordan families have different plans for Patrick and Angie—and for Christmas, Virgin River–style!

Kritters Thoughts:  If you have ever taken a visit to Virgin River with the fantastic characters that Robyn Carr has created, then this will be an extra special read to enjoy during the holidays.  New characters are added - Angie and her special friend Megan - these two will make quite the impact in the small town of Virgin River.  Angie has just survived a major car accident and needs to escape her parents home to recenter herself and find out what path she wants to go down next.

Although the reader is quite aware how this book will probably end - the journey is still worth the ride!  I love how my favorite characters from books past show up, but it still feels like a new book.  The one sore spot I had was the age difference between the lovebirds, it was a little on the large side, but sort of worked because they had quite a few things in common.  I must say it again - it was just fun to revisit these characters and at a different time of the year as I haven't read any of the other Christmas books in this series.

I would absolutely recommend this book to readers of both the women's fiction and romance, it has enough for both sets of readers.  It is also a book for new and old fans of the Virgin River series, you can start anywhere in this series and not feel completely lost.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
