Ok friends, if you read my post about the impossible task, you know I’ve been sitting on some of these reviews for a long time. This is definitely one of those. So forgive my out of season Christmas book review.

I read a few Christmas-y books in December this year, and of them, The Christmas Sisters was my favorite! It is such an adorable story about sisters and family and the struggles we all deal with.

The three sisters in the story could not be more different. Hannah works constantly, leaving no time for a personal life. Her mother longs for her to settle down and start a family, but Hannah couldn’t be bothered. Beth is married and is a stay-at-home mom to two little girls. She looks like she has it all together on the outside, but secretly she wants to return to working full time. Finally, Posy, the youngest sister is the care-free adventurer.

Their family has a tradition of getting together on Christmas as it is a very important holiday to their mother, Suzanne. Hannah missed last Christmas, so this year is going to be extra special. The girls aren’t nearly as close as they used to be, but everything comes out and to a head when they gather in their childhood home in Scotland for the holiday.

I really enjoyed this book. It had the cozy feeling of a holiday book, but also dealt with real life issues and managed to be adorable without being over the top.

If you’re looking for a holiday read, definitely add this one to your list!

Thank you so much to Harlequin Publicity Team for sending along a copy of this book!

Synopsis: 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?
