Another great romance novel from Sarah Morgan! Having read her From Manhattan With Love series and a couple of standalones (see reviews: Sleepless in Manhattan (From Manhattan With Love #1) , Sunset In Central Park (From Manhattan With Love #2) , Miracle On 5th Avenue (From Manhattan With Love #3) , New York, Actually (From Manhattan With Love #4) , Holiday in the Hamptons (From Manhattan with Love #5) , Moonlight Over Manhattan (From Manhattan With Love #6) , A New York Christmas Story , How To Keep A Secret , The Christmas Sisters , One Summer in Paris ), I expected romance, humor, and character building. I was not disappointed! Sarah Morgan has crafted building hope from trauma in her characters. She also shows that bumps will happen in life but turning to those you love in those hard times help you get through.
This is not a simple sappy Christmas romance. There is grit, trauma, misunderstanding, but there is also hope, love, and strength. Rosie has moved an ocean away from her loved ones leaving her sometimes overprotective family behind. She has found how to overcome her lifelong battle with asthma as well as how to stand on her own two feet for once. She has also found love. With her soon to be mother-in-law at the helm, she finds herself engaged with a Christmas wedding! Her family has to scramble to get to America and get through the blizzard to get to the wedding but what could possibly go wrong?
Everything. Of course.
I highly recommend this romance to those getting ready and excited for the holiday season! It has a beautifully depicted backdrop of snowy mountains and treehouses at a resort I would absolutely love to go to for a vacation. I would also recommend this novel for adults as there is mild foul language and sexually explicit material.
This is a standalone novel but I would love if further novels developed from this novel. I would also recommend her other standalones as well as her From Manhattan with Love series!
