“…this is a feel good cozy holiday story.”

~ Under the Covers

Every season I look forward to picking up a new Sarah Morgan women’s fiction novel for a few reasons. They’re always multi-layered stories about life at different stages. They show a warmth in relationships that are not always perfect but with work and some attention can flourish. They can still be romantic and satisfying with an HEA. And that’s exactly what THE CHRISTMAS ESCAPE delivers.

This story centers around Christy. Her life is carefully planned and pictured perfect on the outside. But the weight of keeping all that up can easily come crashing down when she suspects her husband is having an affair. Her friendship with one time best friend Alix is not as close as it used to be. And her perfectly planned Christmas vacation to visit an estranged aunt in Lapland may need to be re-evaluated.

If what you are looking for is a wintery Christmas vibe, this is the book for you. Part of it is set in Lapland and just the beautiful setting, the sledding, the Northern Lights, it had me itching to look up tickets and put this on my bucket list of places to visit. It added a magical element that fit perfectly with the season. But also highlighted the joy in the simple things. And that translated well into the relationships in this book. Romantic, family and friendships.

Christy and her husband ‘s troubled marriage grows as they learn to communicate and I was rooting for them the whole way. There is a secondary romance as well that is an enemies to lovers. I was so invested in their relationship and they definitely added a touch of spice to the story with their personalities and banter.

In the end, this is a feel good cozy holiday story.
