RT Rating

This anthology consists of three stories about lonely people who unexpectedly find romance and love during the Christmas holiday season. Each story is filled with romance, humor and strong lead characters who are sympathetic and endearing. These stories are engaging and genuine, hooking the reader from the very first page.

In “Midnight Confessions” by Carr, serious, brittle Sunny Archer is still stung from being left at the altar a year ago. She is not interested in men and tries to make that clear to Drew Foley, the handsome doctor she meets at a New Year’s Eve party. But after spending some time with him, Sunny begins to consider that there could possibly be room for love in her life again.

Strong-minded lawyer Jordan Parrish is known for how quickly she meets and discards men in Brashear’s “Midnight Surrender.” That is until she meets lighthearted, kind Irishman, Will Masterson. Though he is not her type and she is not his, sparks fly between them.

Federal specialists Elise Watson and Noah James find themselves working together once again on a bank takeover project in “Midnight Assignment” by Dahl. Their shared personal history includes an embarrassing kiss that Elise would love to forget. However, being in such close proximity to each other, both must face the desires that they have been harboring. (HARLEQUIN, Nov., 315 pp., $7.99)

Midnight Confessions

Submitted by Robin in PA on May 19, 2012 - 4:50pm.

I picked up this book because I wanted to read the next Virgin River story called Midnight Confessions. It's been a year since Sunny Archer was left standing at the altar. Now she is visiting her uncle in Virgin River, and just wants to be left alone. But her uncle talks her into visiting Jack's Bar for a New Years Eve Party and she meets Drew Foley, a guy who has a lot in common with Sunny.

I really didn't care for this addition to the Virgin River series. Most of the conversation between the hero and heroine was talking about being dumped by their respective fiancees. I really liked both characters and just wish there could have been more to the story. My rating: 3 Stars.
