    Really engrossing story set around Christmas

    Sarah Morgan is one of my favourite authors and she has moved from the lighter chick-lit to more contemporary women's fiction in her last two books, with much more depth to the stories, and in my opinion is just going from strength to strength as this was another wonderful book about family dynamics. The three sisters are Hannah, Beth and Posy. Hannah is a high-flyer living in Manhattan, very clever, very controlled and seems quite cold, never letting emotions rule her. Beth is a stay at home mum to two young children, also living in Manhattan, who is feeling a bit overwhelmed with motherhood being her whole life. Posy is a mountain guide and lives near her parents in Scotland. All sisters end up in Scotland for Christmas with their parents, Suzanne and Stewart, who are actually their adoptive parents as the sisters parents died in an avalanche when they were young and as Suzanne & Stewart were friends of their parents they took in the girls to raise as their own, moving them from the US to Scotland to be nearer Stewart's family. There are various dramas going on with the sisters, all initially stemming from losing their parents at such a young age, and they all grew up with various hang-ups, well apart from Posy really, she seemed the most grounded of the lot of them and probably my favourite. But this Christmas things came to a head in a variety of ways and the sisters actually start talking properly to one another again about more emotional subjects that they'd been avoiding for years. Suzanne and Stewart were great parents too, such a stabilising influence, always there when needed. This was a really engrossing story set around Christmas in the Scottish Highlands. So whilst not a fluffy Christmas story there was plenty of snow and Christmas-feeling throughout, with deeper feelings finally getting sorted out for everyone - with a lovely ending - I do love a happy ending! Loved it!
