Review:: My Kind of Christmas by Robyn Carr
Author: Robyn Carr
Review by: Mary

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!
Robyn Carr writes the most realistic romance novels. I love how she takes real issues and shows what life is really like. I'm convinced she does military families the best. I'm a huge fan of her Virgin River series and I love that this one is set at Christmas time. Virgin River brings something special for the holiday's!
Patrick is on extended leave from the Navy after his friend died while in action. He has been taking care of his friends wife and son and yet needs a break. Angie was in a life threatening car accident and needs a break before he goes back to medical school. They both end up in Virgin River.
I love how Virgin River books are never just about the love story. There is a lot going on. A lot of character development before they ever get together. This is the perfect Christmas story to fall in love with. Patrick and Angie know they can't be together after the holiday's so they take full advantage of there here and now. The ending was a bit cheesy, but aren't they all?! Loved it. Can't wait fr more Virgin River and Robyn Carr!
