The quick of it is that Angie and Patrick have both been through incredibly traumatic experiences and they need time away from their regular lives to figure out what they're going to do with their futures. With family in the area and access to remote cabins where they can unwind and think things through it sounds like the perfect Christmas escape.
Alright. So the issues at hand.
Angie: She nearly died in a terrible car accident. One that shook her up and left her with months of intense therapy. She's wanting to DO something with this second chance at life. Wanting to give back now instead of returning to medical school. And her mother just can't let it go.
Patrick: Is a Navy pilot and recently lost his best friend in a crash. One he witnessed and is struggling with. He's got a major case of survivors guilt, PTSD, and is faced with a major decision to either stay in the Navy and have even more responsibility and people under his watch or to get out now.
So. Some pretty heavy things, yeah? But it's not a terribly heavy book, really! There's humor and heat and fun too as they work through their issues over a few weeks vacation. And kinda have a Winter Fling after meeting at a bar their first night in town, hitting it off and deciding to spend the time they have in Virgin River getting to know each other...intimately.
Much to the dismay of family...This just cracked me up. Angie is in her early 20s and her poor uncle Jack (hero from book one) is having a hard go with her being an adult...
Okay so these two. I really loved them. I liked that they were dealing with similar decisions about their futures. That they were able to help each other heal and find a little peace. The chemistry and heat between them. They had different career paths and responsibilities and a pretty big age gap (around 10 years) but they worked. I was so rooting for them to figure out a way to have more than just a Winter Fling. But I even liked the set up. There were never any real issues between them other than knowing they had a limited time together to enjoy what they had together. So you got to see them just being them together. Enjoying and getting to know each other and having a good time. It was a different vibe but I loved it.
My Kind of Christmas was a lovely time. It had me laughing out loud in parts and getting a little teary eyed in others. And it definitely left me in the Christmas spirit as two very special people found more than what they were ever expecting to find during their winter escapes.
Intriguing storyline with some focus on PTSD. Thought-provoking sub plots and a happily ever after.
Believable characters with distinct personalities. Entertaining and snarky dialogue.
I will continually re-read this series.
Angela was in a serious car accident and has had to go through tough rehab to get herself back up and going. However, she is feeling different about med school and many other things. Her mother has been hounding her to get back to school and she can't take it, so she goes to Virgin River and is in Jack and Mel's cabin.
From the second these two lay eyes on each other the sparks fly. It was fun reading about these two. They each have serious baggage to overcome and their time together brings out some interesting results. A very good story. I am hoping this is not the end of the Virgin River series, but I have a feeling it might be. Read it, you will like it.
I especially love the Virgin River series and don't know why it took me a few months to get to this Christmas offering. I am just glad that I finally did.
I loved Paddy and Angie's story - two people with problems that find each other and help each other deal with the hurt in their lives. As always with Carr's books, I laughed, I cried, and wanted the very best for this wonderful couple. And if it sounds like I believe these people are real - that's what reading this author's books does to you. She brings her characters and their predicaments alive to the reader. She also brings the town of Virgin River alive and I just wish it was a real place rather than this lovely locale in my imagination.
Read "My Kind of Christmas" and if you haven't read her other offerings, start reading. If you are a romance fan, you won't be disappointed.
