Back Cover Copy:

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 lop 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?

My Thoughts:

Suzanne McBride is a true mother – she worries about her children.  Bethany “Beth” seems to be a 
woman who is trying to find her purpose.  You can almost feel the stress coming off the page.  She’s 
also a little frustrated with one of her siblings.  Hannah seems to be a very important part as to 
where this story is headed.  She makes me think of someone who doesn’t know how to be anything 
but standoffish.  It was interesting to see how she explained to the reader about her personality.

When you see a holiday listed in the title, you start the book off with certain expectations.  You can’t 
do that here.  For me, this story starts off so sad.  There are some people that just aren’t happy 
around the holidays.  Posey had me thinking that maybe there’s hope.  She seems to do something
that she enjoys.  I liked how all the McBride women are main characters.  This way I don’t have to 
choose a favorite.  I also got my sister fix so I grew up in a house of brothers.  I had to take my 
assumptions and put them away.  I didn’t want to go in looking for our family to fall apart – there 
has to be that part where family love wins out.

It’s not a story where I wanted to listen to Christmas music as I was reading.  And that’s a good thing 
because that just means that I could read Ms. Morgan’s book any time of year.  On the other side, I 
don’t want to be thinking snow just yet.  I would prefer to ease into it but I know that I don’t have 
any say in that.  Although I must say that I had the urge to pack my bags, book included, and take a 
trip to Scotland.  It would also be interesting to experience how they would celebrate the holidays.  
This was my first experience with this author and I look forward to more – especially if it has me 
wanting to go and experience some of what her characters did.
