Goodreads:  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?

Kritters Thoughts:  Three sisters return to Scotland for the holidays and each is dealing with a bit of drama in each of their lives.  Hannah, Beth and Posy were adopted by Suzanne and Stewart when a tragedy befell their parents.  They have been raised by Suzanne and Stewart their whole lives, but each has dealt with the loss of their parents in a different way.  

Beth has two young kids and is ready to return to the workforce and her husband may not be on board.  Hannah is a workaholic and something personal may completely interfere with her schedule.  Posy stayed in Scotland and has never admitted to wanting more than what is in the same zip code.  I love that all three girls have different problems and nothing seems over the top, but all seem plausible to happen to the girls at the same time.  

I like to call these books the family comes home drama when family members return home and drama and then resolution occurs.  In these books the family members use the strengths of others to solve their drama.  If this was an official sub genre, I would subscribe and read all of them.

I read this book a little early in the year.  I would suggest reading this one curled up in the winter time as the holidays approach.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
