In the snowy Highlands of Scotland, Suzanne McBride is dreaming of the perfect cozy Christmas. Her three adopted daughters are coming home for the holidays and she can't wait to see them. But tensions are running high...

Workaholic Hannah knows she can't avoid spending the holidays with her family two years in a row. But it's not the weight of their expectations that's panicking her--it's the life-changing secret she's hiding. Stay-at-home mom Beth is having a personal crisis. All she wants for Christmas is time to decide if she's ready to return to work--seeing everyone was supposed to help her stress levels, not increase them! Posy isn't sure she's living her best life, but with her parents depending on her, making a change seems risky. But not as risky as falling for gorgeous new neighbor Luke...

As Suzanne's dreams of the perfect McBride Christmas unravel, she must rely on the magic of the season to bring her daughters together. But will this new togetherness teach the sisters that their close-knit bond is strong enough to withstand anything--including a family Christmas?

Booklist Review: "A tragic accident just before Christmas 25 years ago has profound effects on the lives and loves of sisters Posey, Hannah, and Beth. Their adoptive mother, Suzanne, is determined to make Christmas perfect, but old memories, secrets, and each woman's own insecurities are creating a lot of tension when they all get together in the family home in the Scottish Highlands. Each sister believes the others have perfect lives. Hannah is the ultimate career woman, but she never lets anyone get too close. What will happen to her carefully constructed life if she's pregnant? Beth seems to be the ultimate wife and mother, but she's desperate to return to work. Posey doesn't remember a life before Suzanne and her adoptive father, Stewart, and feels guilty for contemplating a future that doesn't involve her parents' coffeehouse. A sexy renter makes Posey long for much more, but is he too good to be true? Morgan's second venture into women's fiction, after How to Keep a Secret (2018), is the perfect gift for readers who relish heartwarming tales of sisters and love.--C. L.

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Morgan (How to Keep a Secret) mixes angst, love, and family in an all-too-lifelike emotional jumble of childhood hurts, sisterly rivalry, and unexpected pregnancies that's as much women's fiction as romance. As children, sisters Hannah, Beth, and Posy lost their parents to a mountain-climbing accident. Adopted by their mother's friend Suzanne, the accident's sole survivor, and her husband, Stewart, the sisters move from Washington State to Scotland. Fast-forward 25 years, and Hannah is a driven workaholic who refuses to get close to anyone; Beth is a stay-at-home mother to two rambunctious girls and longs for her old career; and Posy, a frustrated adventurer, remains with Suzanne and Stewart, running the family cafe. Heading home for Christmas, each sister holds a painful secret. Suzanne feels responsible for making everyone happy-until unexpected visitors prove Christmas magic exists. Heartfelt and sensitive, Morgan's sometimes bittersweet Christmas tale emphasizes the importance of family. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
