My review: 'Tis The Season by Robyn Carr Under the Christmas Tree\Midnight Confessions (Virgin River #8 & 12)
This has three stories in it. Two of them are Virgin River stories #8 & 12. I had read one of the stories but the other two were new to me. I enjoyed them. Made me have warm feelings for Christmas and Christmas puppies. They have warm hearted characters.
I love the community of Virgin Rivers. Did not like the love scenes.
The first story is Under the Christmas Tree
Annie McKenzie stopped in Virgin River too look at the Christmas Tree. Jack was on ladder working on the tree with Christopher is watching him while two year old David disappeared. He came out from under the tree with a very cold puppy. David called it "Boppie"
Someone dropped a box of puppies early under the tree. They were too young to not be without their mom.
Annie took charge and was ordering everyone in the bar. Even gave breath to one dog. There were 8 puppies. She convinced Jack and town to help with the puppies. She would come every day after work to help.
Doc. Nate Jensen came and agreed with her how to try and take care of them. Nate was really interested in Annie.
I loved this story. How so many volunteered to help with the puppies. How Chris wanted the puppy named Comet. He did not know which one was called that was though.
Nate's niece Sunny Archer was staying with him on New Years Eve. She is depressed because of bad breakup last year. She does not want to go with Nate & Annie to Jack's Bar for New Years Eve party.
Drew Foley is spending some time at his families cabin and decides to at least get a beer on New Years Eve and finds a party. Drew is a intern. He sees Annie and tries to talk to her.
I really like Drew and his warm tender heart. He knows what to say to help Annie.
John and Leigh dated 5 years ago. But no one knew that. Leigh's Aunt wants her back in town so tells Leigh she is having heart problems and want to see her and her twins before she dies.
Leigh is super smart but gets distracted by everyday stuff. She is mother of 4 year old twins.
John has a business being a handyman. He was married and divorced since he last saw Leigh but he has not forgotten her.
Jess and her widow friends planned to bring Leigh home and throw her and John together this summer working on her backyard and planning a big party that she hopes will turn into a wedding.
If your a fan of Robyn Carr and have not read these books I recommend them to you. If your new to Robyn Carr you will find fun warm community of characters that you will want to keep reading about.
Under the Christmas tree was my favorite story. I could do without the sex scenes which I skipped over. Did enjoy all three stories.
I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin and in return agreed to give honest review of it.
