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!
My Kind of Christmas is #20 in the Virgin River series. Please don’t let that scare you. While it is not exactly a standalone novel, you don’t have to have read the entire series before reading this one. I know that for a fact because I have only read one in this series and I still enjoyed it. Since I enjoyed it so much I know I will be looking for the rest of this wonderful series to read.
And I did enjoy it! I love the small town feel to the story. How dimensional the characters are and how their problems and their reactions to them seem very real. The romance between Angie and Paddy was a slow but sweet. Paddy at times was a bit clueless with how he dealt with his best friend’s widow but overall he is a wonderful guy. I could also understand why Angie needed space from her mom and I love how their relationship worked out in the end.
So if you are looking for a sweet, home town Christmas romance to read – well pick up a copy of My Kind of Christmas and enjoy!
