Things do not go well. Denny isn't happy to see her, and she's sure she's made a huge mistake. Then she breaks her ankle and is confined to quarters with a way too handsome Denny in attendance. What's a girl to do?
Bring Me Home for Christmas brings back many of the delightful Virgin River characters we know and love. Amid the charming and caring town, Becca reevaluates her life and what she really needs. This is a wonderful Christmas story featuring caring people and causes, but it's also a coming of age story for Becca and Denny and what they want for the future. It is also a heartwarming story of Becca's rediscovering her love of teaching and a healing of the rift between her and her mother. Highly recommended.
Becca Trimm surprises her brother Rich on the morning of his scheduled departure for a hunting trip in Virgin River with his ex-Marine buddies for the Thanksgiving holiday. She is going with him and is prepared and ready. Rich has no time to think it through and allows her to accompany him but knows he should be worried: Denny Cutler, Becca's ex, is their host and this is sure to be a problem. She wants to make certain her feelings for Denny are in the past before she takes the next step with her current boyfriend but Becca tells everybody she just wants to learn how to hunt and fish. Yeah, right.
Becca and Denny didn't part ways on great terms so her being in Virgin River is awkward for all. When one of Rich and Denny's friends show interest in Becca, matters get even stickier. But, Denny, who hasn't gotten over Becca, has to assert himself more than he'd like to keep things from moving further in the wrong direction.
Becca ends up in a situation beyond her control that causes her to extend her stay in Virgin River for several weeks. During that time, she and Denny have a chance to finally talk about the demise of their relationship and come to terms with their feelings for each other.
One of the most compelling aspects of this series is the spirit of community in Virgin River. We get to see it in action through Becca's eyes as the residents prepare to help out needy families for the holidays and reach out to those stranded when a snow storm hits early. Becca's opinion of the town is transformed as she watches the people in action. While there aren't many subplots in this story, many of our favorites are part of the main story.
Denny and Becca's story is woven brilliantly with those involving the holiday season. It's heartwarming and you grow to love Denny even more if that's possible. Becca is also a talented and interesting force who finds herself conflicted as she contemplates her two relationships. Family themes run strong, those biological and extended, as both consider what a commitment would mean.
This story is a wonderful addition to the series, especially right before the holidays. I would have preferred to have had more story lines in play as that is another one of the appeals of the books but it doesn't detract from it still being well written and compelling.
Well this book kept me up to really early AM. I really like the town of Virgin River and how they take care of everyone. Bring Me Home for Christmas leaves you feeling good and wanting to do more for others in their community. Plus your routing for Becca and Denny to get back together.
Becca showed up at her twin's early in the morning with luggage and gun and told him she was going on his hunting and fishing vacation. Rich Timm told her no its was a guys trip and Denny her ex-boyfriend would be their. Becca told him her Thanksgiving plans cancelled and her parents would not go on their vacation if Becca was staying by herself. Rich gave into Becca but told her not to ruin his trip.
Becca boyfriend Doug was making lots of plans about them for when he got finshed with law school in Spring. Becca was thinking too much about her breakup with Denny and about him so she needed closure before getting Married.
Denny has found a new home 10 hours away from San Diego in Virgina River a small town in the mountains. He found a family in the community after comming home from war. Six years ago when he was stationed in San Diego Rich brought him home one weekend and for three years Becca and Denny were a couple. Even when he was Irac with Rich. When he got out his mom was facing cancer after she died Denny reinlisted without telling Becca and broke up with her. She did not hear from him while he was in Afghanistan even though she wrote and sent emails. After being home for awhile Denny showed back up and wanted to try again but Becca was still hurt and angry sent him away.
Denny planned a hunting and fishing vacation with three good friends he made in Irac. He wanted to catch up and have a good time with his buddies even with Rich. He would think of Becca too much with her twin right their.
When Rich and Becca showed up at the bar they were to meet at Denny lost it, Denny got angry when Becca introduced herself to Dirk and Troy and told them she blindsided her brother and would they mind her being their. Becca was beautful and Dick and Troy flirted with her and told her she was welcomed. Denny lost his temper and was really rude to Becca and was jealous.
First day of hunting ducks she quit early and Denny had to go back to town so took her with him . On the way back they fought and she had Denny pull over. Becca jumped out of the truck planning to walk back to others but she ended up falling down off the side of the road and ended up with a broken ankle and had to be operated on and told she could not travel home for at least 10 to 12 days.
I liked how Becca found ways to help while she was stuck on crutches and tried to make the best of it. While she was stuck with Denny they talked about what happened in the past. Becca also got involved with the town of Virgin River and all their service projects doing what she could do.
You cared about the characters and wanted to read more about them, and their town. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
