Sierra’s family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon—it’s a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other.
Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.
By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb’s past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.
A fabulous read based around the holidays with incredible and heart-warming characters.
The characters were what made this book for me. I loved each and every character in this book and while the book itself is relatively short the characters themselves seem so realistic. This is a super-cute read about the trouble with growing up on one side of the country for most of the year and then spending every single holiday every year on the other side of the country for work. While this is a romance based around the holidays in a Christmas Tree Yard it elicits the same heart-warming emotions even if it is not Christmas-time. I cannot review this book without a quick compliment on the cover, it is absolutely stunning. I like how there is potentially issues for the future of these characters and nothing is really wrapped up in a nice neat bow. This is different to books that I usually read and makes this book all the more special. This is a new feel-good read that I really enjoyed.
Keep Calm and Read On,
