My Kind of Christmas  (Virgin River, #20)
Virgin River Series Book #20
Click HERE to read an Excerpt
PATRICK RIORDAN ALWAYS THOUGHT 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!
I am a HUGE fan of Robyn Carr and the Virgin River series. It is one of my absolute favorites and I anxiously await each new release. Every time I start a new book in the series, it makes me want to go back and reread the series from the beginning. It is like visiting with old friends and meeting new ones. I just love to wrap myself up in the comfort of these stories. I have reread the Virgin River series more times than I can count and will continue to do so. 

I was so not disappoint in My Kind Of Christmas. It was everything that I look forward to and love about this series. I don't think that I have gotten through a book in this series without being emotionally affected~in some way~by the struggle of such wonderful and lovable characters and their journey towards a HEA.  

Oh...Patrick *sigh* I just loved him and Angie so much right from the beginning. They were perfect for each other and captured my heart. I loved how each of them gave the other exactly what they needed.  Patrick was able to find the peace he so desperately needed in Angie and she was able to find the strength and confidence she was lacking in Patrick. I was so rooting for their HEA!!!  

The Riordan brothers are so funny and loving and dysfunctional. I love how they interact with each other and especially with their mother. 

Each book in the Virgin River series continues to be fresh and new and I will never get tired of reading them or looking forward to more. As with every other book in this series, I was able to lose myself in the story and I wasn't ready to leave Patrick and Angie and look forward to reading more about them through out the series. 

What I find myself loving about Robyn's writing and why I continue to come back to this series is the hope. In each of the books the hero and/or heroine are struggling with some tragedy/trauma in their lives and hoping to come to Virgin River to find healing and peace. What they find, usually pretty quickly, is the love of their life and so much more. That in this little tiny town, they find everything that they didn't even know they needed. Love this!! :)  I want Virgin River and these characters to be real and even as I say good~bye at the end of each book, I do so knowing that I will be returning. Thank you, Robyn,  so much for that!! :)

Obviously,  My Kind Of Christmas is going into my keeper pile alongside the rest of this series to be reread. BEST OF THE BEST rating.
