In the snowy perfection of Aspen, the White family gathers for youngest daughter Rosie’s whirlwind Christmas wedding.
First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret about their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.
Rosie’s older sister Katie is also dreading the wedding. Worried that impulsive, sweet-hearted Rosie is making a mistake, Katie is determined to save her sister from herself. If only the irritatingly good-looking best man, Jordan, would stop interfering with her plans…
Bride-to-be Rosie loves her fiance but is having serious second thoughts. Except everyone has arrived – how can she tell them she’s not sure? As the big day gets closer, and emotions run even higher, this is one White family Christmas none of them will ever forget.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
All her life Maggie has protected her little girls like a mother hen around her chicks but Katie and Rosie are grown-up women with their own lives now and Maggie still can’t lower her defences. Katie is a busy A & E doctor facing her own hidden trauma, while Rosie is working out in Aspen. There seemed all the time in the world to tell the girls that their dad and she had not just drifted apart, they were now living apart and looking at getting divorced. She was determined to tell them after they all had just one more traditional Christmas together in their family home.
A middle of the night call came from Rosie announcing that she has found the love of her life in a whirlwind romance, just like they had when they were young and wanted them to fly to Aspen to be there for her Xmas wedding in three weeks. Maggie and Nick made a pact to pretend that all was good with them until after the wedding. Oh boy, this was going to be interesting!
I fell in love with Aspen, its tree lodges, husky sleigh rides, romantic dinners and everything that a Christmas there could throw at me. I sighed and swooned, sat and let my mind take me into this story to experience first hand as much as I possibly could and it was breathtakingly beautiful. My cheeks flushed and my heart raced.
It is a story that follows so many paths, being honest, a leap of faith and letting go but so much more too. I laughed so much in this book. Fell in love with characters and cheered like a cheerleader at the top of the league. It lifted me on a damp and dreary day and whisked me to a magical place. Loved it, loved it, loved it!
I wish to thank NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
