Having read many intense books, I was in mood for a lighter, cosier read, where the story would fold me into its loving bonds, giving me the vibes of Christmassy cheer along with loads of happiness. One such book was Home For Holidays where three sisters with their familial problems left everything to spend one ‘last’ Christmas with Aunt Sassy.
My first foray into author Sara Richardson, I loved all the women in the book. They had their troubles in life, but they were strong at the core, warm-hearted too. The writing was just perfect to uplift me from the stresses of life. I was quickly pulled into their time at the Juniper Inn. The cover too gave me a warm fluttery feeling of being enveloped in the same blanket of love as the sisters. Of course, the story had its share of hunky males which added to the spice. But fear not, it was not a romantic book, per se.
The loving sisterly bonds were a joy to read, and I cheered for each of them. The book had its moments of seriousness along with humor and good fun. I found it to be a perfect blend of happiness and love that I could keep reading all through the day, though I finished it pretty quickly.
Absolutely UNPUTDOWNABLE was how I would describe it. I loved the book, and the book loved me back

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
