In the snowy Highlands of Scotland, Suzanne McBride is dreaming of the perfect cozy Christmas. Her three adopted daughters are coming home for the holidays and she can’t wait to see them. But tensions are running high…

Workaholic Hannah knows she can’t avoid spending the holidays with her family two years in a row. But it’s not the weight of their expectations that’s panicking her—it’s the life-changing secret she’s hiding. Stay-at-home mom Beth is having a personal crisis. All she wants for Christmas is time to decide if she’s ready to return to work—seeing everyone was supposed to help her stress levels, not increase them! Posy isn’t sure she’s living her best life, but with her parents depending on her, making a change seems risky. But not as risky as falling for gorgeous new neighbor Luke…

As Suzanne’s dreams of the perfect McBride Christmas unravel, she must rely on the magic of the season to bring her daughters together. But will this new togetherness teach the sisters that their close-knit bond is strong enough to withstand anything—including a family Christmas?

Genre: Romance - Contemporary

My Impression:  I love a good Christmas read and when I saw this one was set in Scotland AND focused on a homecoming there was no way I could resist it!  It was a lot of fun and full of cozy moments and heartfelt realizations.  The multiple POV storyline was well done and each character had a very disntinct voice.  I didn’t always like the character I was reading but it was never confusing.  

While each of the characters annoyed me at times they more than redeemed themselves by the end and I enjoyed taking this Christmas journey with them!  As with most multiple POV stories there is a lot going on.  Since the personalities of the characters were so well defined it made the book a quick and enjoyable read though the ending did end up feeling a bit rushed.  This was a lovely Christmas read with family drama and a dose of healing goodness!
