Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

In this heartwrenching Christmas tale—the 20th installment in Carr's bestselling Virgin River series, after Sunrise Point—two damaged souls find healing together. Med student Angie LaCroix had her whole future mapped out before the car accident that nearly ended her life; Navy pilot Patrick Riordan is reassessing his own life after an Afghanistan mission went terribly wrong and killed his best friend, Jake, leaving behind a young widow, Marie, and toddler son. Family ties bring Angie and Patrick to tiny Virgin River, Calif., and intense chemistry drives them into what both tell themselves will be a temporary relationship. Angie feels reborn after her accident, eager to embrace life in a way she never has before, but Patrick, still struggling with survivor's guilt, feels that his promise to "look out for" Marie requires him to marry her. Longtime fans and new readers alike will race through this tearjerker, hoping for Patrick and Angie to find their happy ending. Agent: Liza Dawson, Liza Dawson Associates. (Nov.) [Page ].
