5 Under the Christmas Tree Stars

Awe this was a short story, but it packs a punch!
Who could resist Christmas, and puppies!

Annie and Nate come together because of a box of puppies. What could be sweeter than that! She is a hair dresser who owns her own shop; he is the large animal Vet.

I loved that they knew of each other from when they were younger but never were friends.
Just a great feel good book all around.

Jack and Preacher sure put up a fight about NOT having a dog.. But there boys David
Questo libricino - praticamente una novella se guardiamo al numero di pagine - nasce come prequel di una saga romance ambientata nel pittoresco paesino di Virgin River. Annie è una ragazza di campagna, con la testa sulle spalle e piedi ben piantati a terra: gestisce il proprio salone di bellezza, ha il proprio appartamento e vive il Natale con l'impazienza di chi aspetta questa giornata per poterla trascorrere assieme alla propria famiglia. Nathaniel, al contrario, non vede l'ora di scappare, ...more

Diese Rezi bezieht sich (erst einmal) nur auf die erste Kurzgeschichte "Under the Christmas Tree", da ich die zweite Kurzgeschichte ("Midnight Confessions") erst dann lesen möchte wenn sie auch wirklich an der Reihe ist. Also nach Band 11. Die letzte der drei Geschichten in diesem Buch gehört gar nicht zur Virgin River Reihe und ich werde sie irgendwann einmal lesen, wenn ich Lust dazu kriege.
Dies ist der 8. Teil der Virgin River Reihe, daher werde ich hier nicht mehr ins Detail gehen. Wer möcht

Short story, short review. Annie McKenzie, hair stylist, and Dr. Nathaniel Jenson, veterinarian, fall in love in record time over the holidays (you had me at 'puppy'!). The End.

This was one Virgin River novella that I actually had never read until now. I was reminded of how hard it can be to write a short story and still be a good one, sometimes even harder than putting in blood, sweat and tears writing a (duh duh duh!) novel. I was shaking my pom poms for Ms. Carr while saying, in my best cheer
Cute, short story in the typical Virgin River oeuvre. Centers around a box of very young puppies found freezing under the giant Christmas tree outside Jack’s bar. Annie helps save the puppies by showing everyone how to warm them quickly since they were close to death from freezing. Annie and several bar patrons help hand feed and take care of the puppies. The local vet, Nathaniel, also helps.

The budding romance between Annie & Nate is the real story here. In typical Virgin River style, seve

"Annie McKenzie , mi sei entrata sottopelle a un punto tale che non sarò mai più un uomo libero"

Ci tuffiamo nella magia del Natale nell'ormai nota Virgin River con questa breve novella dedicata ad il sexy veterinario, Nate, e la "solida" ragazza di campagna Annie! Complice una cesta di otto adorabili cuccioli abbandonati i due si rincontrano dopo essersi persi di vista per moltissimi anni: Annie è appena uscita da una relazione disastrosa e Nate ha una fama da dongiovanni ma la vicinanza necessa

Hab's heute Morgen beim Warten im Wartezimmer beim Arzt erneut gelesen. Mit knapp 109 Seiten ließ sich die lange Wartezeit gut vertreiben. Wie schon beim ersten Mal gefiel mir diese "Kurzgeschichte" der Virgin River erneut ziemlich gut.
Es lässt sich leicht lesen und wie ein roter Faden schlängelt sich die Liebesgeschichte von Annie und Nate durch den Roman. An einigen Stellen würde ich mir zwar noch ein paar Ausschmückungen wünschen, aber dies ist immerhin ein sehr kurzer Roman, der lediglich d

Love the Virgin River series!

Went to college in Northern California so these books take me back to my much younger days. Thoroughly enjoy all of the characters with their diversified and foibles. No one is perfect in Robyn Carr's books.

Carr does it again!

Robyn Carr's Christmas novel once again takes hot back to Virgin River, a town that anyone would love to visit. Her characters make Virgin River come alive and meeting new peopled add to the enjoyment of the series.
It didn't bore me to death. That was a plus. But boy, how I hate those "my last boyfriend was a jerk" clichés.
