t’s not what’s under the Christmas tree, but who’s around it that matters most.
All Suzanne McBride wants for Christmas is her three daughters happy and at home. But when sisters Posy, Hannah and Beth return to their family home in the Scottish Highlands, old tensions and buried secrets start bubbling to the surface.
Suzanne is determined to create the perfect family Christmas, but the McBrides must all face the past and address some home truths before they can celebrate together . . .

I give it - 5/5
My review - If there is something Sarah Morgan knows how to do it is to write the perfect good feeling Christmassy story. It is the perfect book to curl up with on these cold nights (and days since it's freezing all the time) with a blanket and some hot chocolate and just get swept away in this book and, you won't be able to put down until you've finished it!
In this book we follow three sisters and their mother. We get chapters from each of these ladies and I really enjoyed finding out more about each of them and their thoughts. The sisters aren't close, something happened years ago that has made them this way and who they are today. We have Hannah who, is the oldest sister. Her jobs involve numbers and she is always flying off somewhere and returning to Scotland, to the family, is something she isn't really that keen on. Beth is the middle sister and is married with two cute kids but, is having her own crisis at the moment and then, we have Posy the youngest sister. She loves the outdoors and she is part of the mountain rescue team and of course we have the mother, Suzanne. She wants the closeness back between her girls and is hoping that Christmas is the perfect time for it to happen and she is running herself ragged to make sure everything is perfect.
Sarah has written something wonderful here. A story about finding your way back home, coming to terms with your past so you can move on with your future, make amends with your family and just have the best Christmas. I really enjoyed the flashbacks in this book as it gives you more insight to Suzanne and her girls and makes you understand them a little bit more. I really love reading about each of these characters, what they get up to, their thoughts about seeing each other at Christmas and it was just wonderful. Suzanne is determined is repair the bond between these girls.
A wonderful story about family and repairing old wounds and it is set in the beautiful Scottish highlands and it just really adds to the story! Another fantastic story from Sarah and I really cannot wait to see what she brings out next.
