#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr returns to the beloved town of Virgin River with a brand-new story about fresh starts, new friends and the magic of Christmas.

Kaylee Sloan’s home in Southern California is full of wonderful memories of the woman who raised her. But the memories are prolonging her grief over her mother’s recent death. A successful author, Kaylee hoped she could pour herself into her work. Instead she has terrible writer’s block and a looming deadline.

Determined to escape distractions and avoid the holiday season, Kaylee borrows a cabin in Virgin River. She knows the isolation will help her writing, and as she drives north through the mountains and the majestic redwoods, she immediately feels inspired. Until she arrives at a building that has just gone up in flames. Devastated, she heads to Jack’s Bar to plan her next steps. The local watering hole is the heart of the town, and once she crosses the threshold, she’s surprised to be embraced by people who are more than willing to help a friend—or a stranger—in need.

Kaylee’s world is expanding in ways she never dreamed possible. And when she rescues a kitten followed by a dog with a litter of puppies, she finds her heart opening up to the animals who need her. And then there’s the dog trainer who knows exactly how to help her. As the holidays approach, Kaylee’s dread turns to wonder. Because there’s no better place to spend Christmas than Virgin River.

My Review:

 This book follows Kaylee whose driving to Virgin River for some peace and to write her last book in a series.  Upon arriving in Virgin River the house she rented is going up in flames. Unsure of what to do she heads to Jack's bar where everyone goes for some guidance and substance,  

Jack decides to help the lost girl find a place to stay for a short while until she can find somewhere to rent.  After checking out a few places with a realtor she takes up Landry on his offer of a cabin he built on his father's property.  The only complication is the dog training and Kaylee's bad history with dogs.

These two have sad memories on the holiday's Kaylee it's her mom and Landry it's his dad.  Both are trying to find there way in the world and make it past their failed relationships and find comfort in the relationship they are building.

I love this series and how it brings a depth not all books bring to love stories. Ms. Carr has a way of getting to the depth of a story and bringing the raw emotion out.  I love how we get to see what everyone is up to and how they have continued their love stories and how Kaylee and Landry get brought into the town!
