Book Review: Home Sweet Christmas
Until Camryn Neff can return to her “real” life in Chicago, she’s in Wishing Tree to care for her twin sisters. She’s not looking for forever love, not here. But handsome hotelier Jake Crane is a temptation she can’t resist, so she suggests they pair up for the season. No golden rings, no broken hearts. At his side, she sees her hometown through Christmas-colored eyes. The cheer is cheerier, the joy more joyful. She thought she had put her future on hold…but maybe her real life was here all along, waiting for her to come home.
New in town, River Best is charmed by Wishing Tree’s homespun traditions and warmhearted people. When she’s crowned Snow Queen, she’s honored but wary. Dylan Tucker, her king, seems like the stuff of sugarplum dreams, but she can’t shake the feeling that he’s hiding something big. As they perform their “royal” duties—tasting cookies, lighting trees—Dylan’s good humor and melty kisses draw her to the brink of love. But she can’t let herself fall until she uncovers his secret, even if her lack of faith means losing him forever.
Home Sweet Christmas is another wonderful book from author, Susan Mallery. It definitely got me into the holiday spirit. It is never too early to start reading Christmas books. I could see this book playing out on the Hallmark channel. Of the two couples through I do have a favorite. It is River and Dylan. This is because I saw a bit of myself in River as being an introvert. So, they relationship moved at a slower and sweet pace. This is not to say that I did not like Camryn and Jake as a couple too. They brought more of the spicer side.
Although Susan does a great job of making not just the main characters so enjoyable but all of the other ones as well. So that they don’t feel like just add ins but people that you want to hang out with. If Wishing Tree was a real place I would want to visit and hang with everyone. Readers of Susan will love this holiday read. Home Sweet Christmas is a sweet holiday treat of a read!
