Home for the Holidays by Sara Richardson

*Blurb from Goodreads*

The Buchanan sisters all share special childhood memories of their Aunt Sassy’s beloved Juniper Inn. There, they frolicked in the snow, baked sugar cookies, and celebrated the town’s annual Christmas extravaganza. They haven’t been back to Colorado in nearly fifteen years, but when their aunt invites them for one last Christmas, they can’t say no . . .

With her ex-husband whisking her children away for the holiday, Dahlia decides it’s time to do something for herself. Juniper Springs is just as beautiful as she remembers, but it’s also full of surprises — including the town’s handsome doctor, who makes her feel like herself again for the first time in years.

To the outside world, baker Magnolia has the ideal marriage. Only the pain and sorrow of infertility have strained her relationship with her husband, perhaps beyond repair. But a holiday miracle is about to change her life.

After a whirlwind romance, youngest sister Rose is about to be married, but as the wedding draws near, she’s unsettled by her fiancé’s expectations that she become a society wife. Spending Christmas with her family could be a necessary reality check — or the beginning of a brand-new happily ever after.

Thanks to the strength of their sisterhood, some mistletoe, and the love of their Aunt Sassy, the Buchanan sisters will discover what it is they truly want this Christmas.

My Thoughts

Fans of the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas movies will love this story. The story is well written and does keep you entertained. The characters are realistic to a point if a little “dreamy”. It very much reads like a Hallmark feel good Christmas movie. I did enjoy it. But I enjoy those movies. I want a happily Ever after. Or at least to know good things are coming. So this book felt good to me. The author does a good job of allowing you to follow the 3 sisters and their struggles. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a feel good holiday centered story.
