Rating: 5 out of 5.

Home for the Holidays is a beautiful and heartwarming story about three sisters going back to the place they loved most as a child, their aunt Sassy’s inn in Colorado. The three sisters live in different states and are going through a bunch of different issues. One is dealing with an incompetent ex-husband. One is getting married with an overbearing soon to be mother in law, and one is dealing with infertility. All three sisters are overwhelmed so when their aunt Sassy asks them to come visit for her last Christmas at the end, they all go. And it was exactly what they all needed. 

This story was so enchanting. I loved every character. I love the setting. I love the relationship bonding. I honestly love everything about this story. It is the type of story that makes you feel good.. even when dealing with some harder issues. The writing was perfect. 

I can’t wait to read more from this author.

I have mixed feelings about this book. I loved the setting of the story. I absolutely loved the world and the characters were all fantastic. I just don’t know if I liked the actual story.

This book starts with Languoreth and her twin brother Lailoken growing up learning the old way. However there is a new religion and with that comes zealots and war. Languoreth knows her duty. She knows she must marry to protect her people… But there is this dragon warrior that she falls in love with first. I won’t give anything away but I will say that she knows her duty to her people.

This story is full of a brutal world and a brother and sister trying to stay alive and keep their family alive. It’s full of love and heartbreak. I am glad that the next book comes out soon! I don’t want to wait to see what happens.
