#BookReview: A Virgin River Christmas (Virgin River, #4) by Robyn Carr

Synopsis: Last Christmas Marcie Sullivan said a final goodbye to her husband, Bobby. This Christmas she's come to Virgin River to find the man who saved his life and gave her three more years to love him. Fellow marine Ian Buchanan dragged Bobby's shattered body onto a medical transport in Fallujah four years ago, then disappeared as soon as their unit arrived stateside. Since then, Marcie's letters to Ian have gone unanswered.

Marcie tracks Ian to the tiny mountain town of Virgin River and finds a man as wounded emotionally as Bobby was physically. But she is not easily scared off. As Marcie pushes her way into his rugged and reclusive life, she discovers a sweet but damaged soul beneath a rough exterior.

Ian doesn't know what to make of the determined young widow who forces him to look into the painful past and, what's worse, the uncertain future. But it is, after all, a season of miracles and maybe, just maybe, it's time to banish the ghosts and open his heart.


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: I fell in love with the tv show and decided to try the books and although they changed a bunch of stuff. I still love these books.  This is so different from the show.  And each stands on its own with a great story.  

From Booklist

Marcie Sullivan buried her Iraq War–veteran husband a year ago after watching him suffer from battle injuries for three years, and she just can’t seem to move on with her life. Deciding to find his missing best friend, she travels the back roads of Humboldt County, California, looking for the hero who has become a hermit. After visiting Virgin River, she finds Ian Buchanan living in a primitive cabin with no amenities. Ian growls at her, but she refuses to leave, almost dying of hypothermia until he rescues her, then nurses her back to health. With the specter of Bobby between them, they finally forge a friendship but feel much more than that. All Carr’s Virgin River regulars are here, turning this sometimes tearful tale into a warm, fuzzy read. Strong women, honorable ex-marines, and rural dangers, the hallmarks of this life-affirming, feel-good series, are all here. --Diana Tixier Herald
