SUNNY ARCHER WAS SERIOUSLY considering a legal name change.
“Come on, Sunny,” her uncle Nathaniel said. “Let’s go out on the town
and see if we can’t put a little of that legendary sunshine back into your
Out on the town? she thought. In Virgin River? A town of about six
hundred? “Ah, I think I’ll pass…”
“C’mon, sunshine, you gotta be more flexible! Optimistic! You can’t
lick this wound forever.”
Maybe it was cute when she was four or even fourteen to say things like
“Sunny isn’t too sunny today!”
But this was December 31 and she had come to Virgin River to spend a
few quiet days with her uncle Nate and his fiancée Annie, to try to escape
the reality of a heart that wouldn’t heal. And if the hurt wasn’t bad enough,
her heart had gone cold and hard, too. She looked at her watch—4:00 p.m.
Exactly one year ago at this time she was having her hair and makeup done
right before slipping into a Vera Wang wedding gown, excited, blushing and
oblivious to the fact that her fiancé Glen was getting blitzed and ready to
run for his life.
“I’m not really in the mood for a New Year’s Eve bash, Uncle Nate,”
“Aw, sweetheart, I can’t bear to think of you home alone, brooding,

the party idea….”
“Ya think?” Sunny said sarcastically, noting to herself that she hadn’t
been so irritable and sarcastic before becoming an abandoned bride.
“Listen, you guys, please go. Party like rock stars. I actually have plans.”
“You do?” they both asked hopefully.
“I do. I’m planning a ceremonial burning of last year’s calendar. I
should probably burn three years’ worth of them—that’s how much time
and energy I invested in the scumbucket.”
Nate and Annie were speechless for a moment; they exchanged dubious
looks. When Nate recovered he said, “Well all-righty then! We’ll stay home
and help with the ceremonial burning. Then we’ll make some popcorn, play
some monopoly, make some positive resolutions or something and ring in a
much better new year than the last.”
And that was how Sunny, who wasn’t feeling at all accommodating,
ended up going to the big Virgin River blast at Jack’s Bar on New Year’s
Eve—because she just couldn’t let her uncle Nate and sweet, funny Annie
stay home to watch her sulk and whimper.
THERE HAD BEEN A LONG HISTORY in Sunny’s family of returning to the Jensen
stables for a little rest and rejuvenation. Sunny and her cousins had spent
countless vacations around the barn and pastures and trails, riding, playing,
inhaling the fresh clean air and getting a regular new lease on life. It had
been Sunny’s mother’s idea that she come to Virgin River for a postChristmas revival. Sunny’s mom was one of Nate’s three older sisters, and
