Goodreads:  All Emma Daley wants this holiday season is a white Christmas. But the young teacher and struggling musician sure can't find that in sunny Arizona. Luckily, there's someone living in a perfect mountain home in the Colorado Rockies looking to make a vacation trade this year.

Tyler Prescott is an in-demand songwriter and talented musician who put his own singing career on hold to write songs for celebrity acts to perform. When his mother convinces him to do a vacation trade for Christmas, he never imagined one of the houseguests would be so sweet--or so strikingly pretty. Naturally, he decides to stick around, and, to get better acquainted, he poses as the house's caretaker. But when Emma's friend Gillian discovers his true identity and sets her sights on him, things get . . . messy.

Kritters Thoughts:  Emma Daley has spent many holiday seasons with her friend and their family as her parents are doing volunteer work in Africa and put this work ahead of spending the holidays as a family.  This holiday season they will escape the heat of Arizona and she will see her first snow as they house swap and head to Colorado.  

Tyler Prescott is ready to house swap and see some sunshine during this holiday season.  His family heads there as he is delayed, but maybe he will just spend this season under a guise and have a great holiday season with some strangers.

I always get nervous reading books, especially romance books that are light on the pages.  I feel as though the romance can seem rushed and instalove, but that wasn't the case in this one, for me this book progressed so well and with ease that these fears were calmed quickly.  

I love the innocence of Melody Carlson.  As a Christian fiction author she keeps the sexy scenes out of her books and I think that allowed for this love story to bloom slowly but surely because they didn't have to jump into bed!

If you love the holiday Hallmark movies, then this will be a great one to curl up with during the holiday season. 

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
