Angie LeCroix just needs to get away, her families constant attention is beginning to feel stiffling. Angie heads to Virgin River to figur out if she wants to finish her medical degree or find another path in life. After a horrific accident Angie isn’t sure if her path still includes becoming a doctor.
Patrick Riordan has been broody since his best friend in the Navy died and he saw it. Now Patrick doesn’t know if he wants to continue his career in the Navy, not to mention he is torn on what to do with his best friends widow Marie and how to give her the support she needs.
When Angie meets Patrick, everyone has an opinion stay away. Not because Patrick is not a good man, just because he is older and not who her family perceives is right for her. Angie and Patrick have a spark and when they decide to act on it, they know where each other stands but will it last more than a few weeks during the holidays?
This was a delightful story, you have two characters who are at a crossroads in life. I liked Angie, she is a spitfire and is ready to be treated as an adult which is what Patrick offers. Patrick has a tough choice that he is making thinking he is doing the right thing. Robyn Carr’s books always have a unique story and a ton of characters that you love.
