Home for the Holidays by Sara Richardson
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Release Date: September 22, 2020
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher.
Home for the Holidays was my first Christmas holiday read for the year and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy all over!
The Buchanan sisters – Rose, Dahlia and Magnolia haven’t been back to Juniper Inn – their aunt’s inn- since they were little girls. Each has their own life now – with all of their own grown up issues. They each receive a letter from their Aunt Sassy informing them that they must spend one last Christmas at Juniper Inn together.
When the sisters arrive at the inn they realize why Aunt Sassy wanted all three sisters together one last time – she wants to gift them Juniper Inn. Do the sisters try to work it out if they want to keep the inn, or is it too much with all of them spread out so far?
I really enjoyed how the various chapters were told from the three sisters point of view. Home for the Holidays immediately made me feel warm and cozy – with all of the holiday decor descriptions and small town vibe. Rose, Magnolia and Dahlia had a lot of time for self reflection during their stay at Juniper Inn, but I also enjoyed how they also were eventually able to rely on one another. The bond of sisterhood was so important in this book and I loved that all of the sisters eventually were able to share not only their joys in life but also their lows.
If you’re looking for a wonderful book that tests the bonds of sisterhood, but also has you getting into the Christmas spirit – pick up Home for the Holidays!
