Add to Wish List
Marcie Sullivan said a final goodbye to her husband Bobby
last December. This Christmas she makes the trek to Virgin
River to find the man who saved Bobby’s life and gave her
three more years to love him.
Ian Buchanan was a fellow marine and the man who dragged
Bobby’s broken body onto a medical transport in Fallujah
four years ago. As soon as their unit arrived Stateside,
Ian disappeared, and Marcie’s letters to him have gone
Tracking Ian to the tiny mountain town of Virgin River,
Marcie finds a man as wounded emotionally as Bobby was
physically. Never one to back down from a challenge,
Marcie pushes her way into Ian’s rugged and reclusive life
and discovers a sweet but damaged soul.
Confused by the determined young widow who forces him to
look into his painful past and his uncertain future, Ian
begins to think that maybe it’s time to banish the ghosts
of his past and open his heart.

Re: A Virgin River Christmas
I just finished Just over the Mountain by Robyn Carr. I love this series. Now I am addicted and have to get the Virgin River series :)

I have read all of them but didn't keep them but after looking at the new covers Im very tempted to buy them again..they were an awesome read..

I buy lots of books taht I already own because the cover's been reissued and I don't remember I already own the book. lol I know...I need a better system! But I'm such a sucker for great books...AND great books with awesome covers!

I can guarentee that the Virgin River
books have great covers and
inbetween the covers great stories.
However I do know that the new Grace
Valley books have great covers, but no
clue as the story. I haven't read them
Thanks to all who commented!

I buy extra copies of books (probably more often that I realize-I'm fairly clueless about what all is in my TBR stack) simply because I forget what I've already read. Also, I've found myself re-buying books because they're being re-issued. If it's been a while since I've read the book, and it's by an auto-buy author I tend to buy the book. (Which makes me mad because I have a limited book budget. I have to get into the habit of checking publication dates before buying the books)

If I have more than one copy of a book, it's because I didn't realize I already bought it. I've never bought re-issued ones, though, unless it's for a book I didn't get when the original was released.

Great blog, Sandi! The only time I'll buy a book I've already read is if the one I read was an arc.

Congrats on buying books to keep! I do know your history, and this is definitely a first for you. I have a coworker like that -she has only a few books she's ever kept. Of course, she has been known to buy books she knows I have (ie Nora Roberts). I have only bought books again because I've forgotton I've already bought it. Every now and then I've been tempted to rebuy because of covers, but not too often. Now, on the other hand, I've bought books because there's a hot guy on the cover - and it doesn't matter what the blurb says!

I have bought all the Grace Valley books and will be reading them one right after the other. I did the same thing with the VR series. These books will be passed from me to other family and friends who I have who I have turned into Robyn Carr lovers.

These have been some very interesting comments, and are proving my thoughts to be somewhat wrong. I really thought more people purchased books over and over to have all the different covers and editions. I'm seeing that the book buying dollar is a being used a bit more frugally than that.
I have a lot of autographed books, but they're buried in my regular book pile. Maybe I need to find some time to reorganize and proudly display them especially when they're as beautiful both inside and outside as the Virgin River and Grace Valley books.

I love her books and I am looking forward to reading the Christmas one. Great post Sandi!

I can't wait to try these books, I'm going to make a trip to the bookstore this week.

Although I am a keeper of a lot of books I don't buy reissues just to have every cover! That said I have had a book given to me that I already had & I have bought a book again because I didn't realize I already had it or read it!! Now that I keep track of what I read it is easier to not duplicate. I've also learned to check the issue date in a book, if it is a reissue I am unaware of the orginal issue date is there!
Great subject/blog for this week.

For those who haven't read the Grace Valley and Virgin River series yet, the Grace Valley series is not hot but the Virgin River series is. I love both series and the Christmas in Virgin River book.There will be three more Virgin River books coming out in the spring of next year. What will I read in the mean time? Needless to say, I love those books.

I have not read these books, but am very anxious to. They sound so very good and I love books with a series to go with them.
