Robyn Carr.....A LOLLAPALOOZA!
GOOD MORNING..........HAPPY TUESDAY! Long time no chat.....I hope everyone is well. Life has been crazy, as usual. I have also started writing. I LOVE...... I also have been doing a little reading. Not as much as I usually do but some really good ones have crossed my path.
In typical Maureen fashion, I saved all 4 Robyn Carr books and hoarded them. Then read all of them way to fast and was soooo sad. SAD....BECAUSE I have to wait for more.........Robyn is AN ABSOLUTE AMAZING AUTHOR, AND ONE HELL OF A CLASS ACT. I have had the pleasure of some wonderful conversations with her. She is kind, caring and so damn funny. She introduced me to 2 other faves of mine Jill Shalvis and Kristan Higgins. I love visiting Virgin River and every book I fall right back there. I wish I could live there...and Jack.....sigh. He is AWESOME.....Reading a book by Robyn is like coming home. She touches me EVERY SINGLE TIME.....
This year, Becca Timm knows the number one item on her Christmas wish list: getting over Denny Cutler. Three years ago Denny broke her heart before heading off to war. It’s time she got over her silly college relationship and moved on.
So she takes matters into her own hands and heads up to Virgin River, the rugged little mountain town that Denny calls home, as an uninvited guest on her brother’s men-only hunting weekend. But when an accident turns her impromptu visit into an extended stay, Becca finds herself stranded in Virgin River. With Denny. In very close quarters.
As the power of Christmas envelops the little town, Becca discovers that the boy she once loved has become a strong and confident man. An the most delicious Christmas present she can imagine.
Sick of running into her cheery ex-husband and his new wife, Leslie Petruso accepts a job at the Virgin River branch of Haggerty Construction and takes the high road right out of town. Now she’s got Paul Haggerty’s business running like a well-oiled machine. In fact, things are so busy Paul jumps at the chance to hire an extra set of hands.
Just like Leslie, Conner Danson has been burned by love. But Leslie was disappointed by her relationship going bad, Conner was decimated. He’s got no time for woman...although he spends an awful lot of time pretending not to notice Leslie. And she’s pretty busy “ignoring” the chemistry between them.
According to Conner and Leslie, they have only one thing in common—they’re done with love. But everyone in Virgin River can see that things are heating up at Haggerty Construction. And as far as Paul Haggerty can tell, the best thing he can do is hang on to his hard hat and watch the sparks fly!
Katie Malone and her twin boys’ trip along the beautiful mountain roads to Virgin River is stopped short by a tire as flat as her failed romance. To make matters worse, the rain has set in, the boys are hungry and Katie doesn’t have the first clue about putting on a spare. As she stands at the side of the road pondering her next move, she hears a distinct rumble. The sight of the sexy, leather-clad bikers who pull up beside her puts her imagination into overdrive.
Dylan Childress and his buddies are on the motorcycle trip of a lifetime. But the sight of a woman in distress stops them in their tracks. And while the guys are checking out her car, she and Dylan are checking out one another.
In one brief moment, the world tilts on its axis and any previous plans Katie and Dylan might have had for their futures are left at the side of the road.
Former marine Tom Cavanaugh’s come home to Virgin River, ready to take over his family’s apple orchard and settle down. He knows just what the perfect woman will be like: sweet, decent, maybe a little naive. The marrying kind.
Nothing like Nora Crane. So why can’t he keep his eyes off the striking single mother?
Nora may not have a formal education, but she graduated with honors from the school of hard knocks. She’s been through tough times and she’ll do whatever it takes to support her family, including helping with harvest time at the Cavanaugh’s orchard. She’s always kept a single-minded focus on staying afloat...but suddenly her thoughts keep drifting back to rugged, opinionated Tom Cavanaugh.
Both Nora and Tom have their own ideas of what family means. But they’re about to prove each other completely wrong...
As I said....I hoard her books....AND then devour like a starving lunatic. If you have never read her....RUN......She is FANFLIPPINTASTIC......If you have do you have a favorite.....I can never pick....I LOVE them ALL...........Check her out.....
HAPPY TUESDAY!!!! HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!
