The Christmas Swap by Sandy Barker **Book Review** @rararesources @sandybarker

Happy Thursday lovely people!

Hope life is treating you well! I just loved everything about this fun Christmas book filled with friendship, Romance, and holiday cheer.🎄

The Christmas Swap

Christmas is coming and best friends Chloe, Jules, and Lucy are needing change… so swapping homes for the holidays could be the perfect present for all of them!

Australian Chloe spends her Christmas in a sleepy village in Oxfordshire, England. She is totally star-struck when she discovers who lives across the road.

Lucy, who has jetted off to snowy Colorado for her dream-come-true white Christmas, is taken into the fold of Jules’s loud and brash family, discovering more about herself in a few short days than she has in years.

And Jules leaves the cold climes of Colorado to spend her Christmas on a beach with Chloe’s friends in Melbourne, finding that time away is just what she needed.

The only thing better than one Christmas romance is three, and this wonderful festive novel is perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan, Holly Martin and Karen Swan.

My Thoughts

A fun feel good festive Christmas swap. Three lovely romances for the price of one. Chloe, Lucy, and Jules met when they were 11 while they were on vacation with their families in Hawaii. The girls formed a fast friendship dubbing themselves the May Ladies since they all have May birthdays. Through the years the girls’ friendship has strengthened through video chats and vacations spent together. This year however they are planning something a little different Chloe is heading to Lucy‘s home in the UK for a traditional family Christmas. Lucy is heading to snowy Colorado for a white Christmas at Jule’s family ski cabin. And Jules is heading to Australia to spend time in the sun with Chloe‘s friends at their orphan’s Christmas. The book bounces around between the three girls adventures with periodic video calls between the three woven in. Love spending time with these three ladies in these three gorgeous locations. Also loved getting to know the three men they all get involved with-seriously Will, Matt, and Asher were three of the greatest guys ever. The chemistry was instant, the angst was minimal, and the romance was sweet. Admittedly I enjoyed Chloe and Lucy‘s stories a tiny bit more than Jules, probably because in California I’ve spent many a hot Christmas. Love how the book highlighted the different cultures and food when it comes to celebrating Christmas in these three locations. Snowboarding, winetasting, fair planning. Sun, snow, rain. Christmas cake, hot chocolate, shrimp. Three friends… three men… three Christmases… one great book!
