Will all three women have their Christmas wishes come true?
Christmas is coming and best friends Chloe, Jules, and Lucy are needing change… so swapping homes for the holidays could be the perfect present for all of them!
Australian Chloe spends her Christmas in a sleepy village in Oxfordshire, England. She is totally star-struck when she discovers who lives across the road.
Lucy, who has jetted off to snowy Colorado for her dream-come-true white Christmas, is taken into the fold of Jules’s loud and brash family, discovering more about herself in a few short days than she has in years.
And Jules leaves the cold climes of Colorado to spend her Christmas on a beach with Chloe’s friends in Melbourne, finding that time away is just what she needed.
The only thing better than one Christmas romance is three, and this wonderful festive novel is perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan, Holly Martin and Karen Swan.
A Sparkling Christmas Read!
A truly enjoyable festive read with friends and fun!
Chloe, Jules and Lucy have been friends a long time and are spread across the globe; this year, each find themselves facing a very different kind of yuletide and agree to swap locations to experience Christmas in a new way. So Chloe heads off from the city of Melbourne, Australia to celebrate in a village in Oxfordshire, England. Lucy, in turn, heads off to a very wintry Colorado to experience a really snowy Christmas whilst Jules heads off to Melbourne, desperate for warmth and sunshine this holiday. Will they all find the kind of break they’re hoping for?
I’m very fond of books where two or three characters are followed in turn, so this one was right up my street! I appreciated that each chapter was headed up with the name of the person focused on – saved me from getting muddled up until I had each one in their correct setting! Getting to know each of these young women felt like a privilege; a sneak peek into their lives, hopes and dreams with a great big dollop of humour dropped into the mix. Three for the price of one, all with Sandy Barker’s wonderful dialogue which made me grin all the way through, keeping me turning the pages long after I should have been in the land of nod. A sparkling Christmas novel which made such a good job of putting me in a festive mood that I just had to purchase a fabulous decoration today! Guaranteed to fill up your Christmas spirit and easily worth all five stars and a huge recommendation.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
