  • A lovely story

    Sarah Morgan is one of my favourite authors. Her books have well-developed characters and meaningful relationships. One More for Christmas was a book I desperately wanted to read, and it was everything I hope it would be and more. Gayle Mitchell is a successful author and leader of organizational change. Following an accident which landed her in hospital, she is asked who should be notified. She hesitates because work has been her life for many years. Finally she mentions the name of one of her daughters - someone she hasn’t seen or talked to in five years. In fact, Gayle has been estranged from both Samantha and her sister Ella during this time. She wonders if they would even come to visit her after how they parted five years ago. Life has changed immensely for the two sisters. Samantha is the CEO of a travel company specializing in creating unique travel opportunities at Christmas. Ella has married and has a preschool daughter. The sisters agree to meet their mother who proclaims she wants to spend Christmas with them this year. The younger women are surprised - could this be coming from a woman who never liked Christmas and chose to work through the holidays? Samantha has to be in Scotland this Christmas to check out a new location for her clients, and so the women and Ella’s family fly across the Atlantic to spend the holidays together. The setting for the remainder of the book is absolutely perfect for a Christmas story. This is such an interesting read, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The relationship between Gayle and her daughters is complex and based on history and life experience. I loved that Gayle fosters personal growth in women throughout the book, right from her own daughters to other female characters. I enjoyed the romance in the book and was thrilled that it tied in with the beautiful setting of the book. It was not, however, the focus of the book. The underlying message in the book is that we can only make the best decisions we can with the information we have at the time. One should not feel guilty about this, in reflection, when we realize we didn’t make the best decision. Thanks to Netgalley and Harlequin for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

  • Scotland Christmas!

    This book is a women’s fiction drama, with some humor and romance mixed in. It follows two sisters, Samantha and Ella, who are extremely close and their estranged mother of 5 years, Gayle, who has always been standoffish and no-nonsense with her girls. Due to a misfortunate accident, Gayle decides it’s time to reconnect with her daughters, but is astonished to find out major life events have happened in their lives and she was not aware. The decision to spend Christmas together is made so that they can hopefully repair their relationship. I loved Samantha and Ella, both as sisters and individually. They support each other without question and have a loving bond. Throughout the book, they both face things about themselves and make changes in their lives. I loved Ella’s husband, Michael, he is funny and very loving. I just wish he had been present more. And then of course you can’t help but love Tab, the spunky 4-year-old, who just loves everyone and is brimming with excitement for Christmas. The one character I just didn’t grow to like is Gayle; I found her very frustrating. The majority of the book takes place in the picturesque highlands of Scotland at Christmas time. The author describes the setting in great and beautiful detail, making it easy to picture the scenery perfectly and making me want to visit! (And maybe find a Laird of my own.) And of course, it can’t be Christmas in Scotland without a blossoming romance. Enter the handsome sweet, adorably awkward Brodie. He wasn’t the typical alpha male you get in a lot of romances, which makes him even more loveable. The connection between him and Samantha is there from the start and is fun to watch grow into more. Overall, this is a charming story about family, relationships and personal growth. A lot of the authors that I follow have started writing more women’s fiction, focusing on family’s relationships, with some romance thrown in. While I enjoy most of them, I do miss the contemporary romance books and series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader copy of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
