Goodreads:  For sisters Samantha and Ella Mitchell, Christmas is their most precious time of the year—a time for togetherness, love and celebration. Most of all, it’s about making up for everything their childhood Christmases lacked. But this year, they’ll be buying presents for the most unexpected guest of all—their estranged mother. It’s been five years since they last saw each other. But when their mom calls out of the blue and promises that this Christmas will be different, Samantha and Ella cautiously agree to spend it all together…

Gayle Mitchell is at the top of her career, but her success has come at a price—her relationship with her daughters. She never seemed to say or do the right things. Her tough-love approach was designed to make them stronger, but instead managed to push them away…until a brush with her own mortality forces Gayle to make amends. As the snowflakes fall on their first family celebration in years, the Mitchell women must learn that sometimes facing up to the past is all you need to heal your heart…

Kritters Thoughts:  Two sisters who had a hard childhood both reacted in different ways to the hard times they had, but through it all they found solace in each other.  Samantha is the older sister and from her childhood has put all of her focus into her career as she books dream vacations that create unforgettable holiday experiences.  She doesn't let any one close other than her sister and finds work success to be the true measure of her self worth.  Ella is the younger sister and love and family are the most important thing to her.  She has decided to be a stay at home mom and put her husband and child first and go in the most opposite direction from her childhood.  Their mother has her own story and I don't want to spoil as those details come out in just the right way and illuminate how these girls have become the adults they have and one Christmas season will change everything.

I love that this author allowed each woman the chance to tell their side of the story throughout the book.  To switch between each woman and see from their perspective, the reader gets to see their true intentions and understand why they do the things they do.  A mother daughter and sister love story where these three women can learn to love each other's past and present and the gifts they each bring to the table.  

A sweet story that could happen at any moment in time, but has something extra when it takes place in Scotland during the Christmas season.  This is another one of those stories that I wouldn't mind seeing on the Hallmark or Lifetime channel really soon!  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
