  • Astrid - The Bookish Sweet Tooth
    READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOGI know Sarah Morgan comes highly recommended. I read one other book by her which was more women's fiction than romance which didn't completely work for me because of the four different point of views, alternating telling the story of them. I was bummed when I realized that this one is women's fiction as well, again with four point of views. It's such a shame because, dammit, I want to read a Sarah Morgan romance!All four...

    Yes, I realize that it’s only September and I’m already reading Christmas books and I’m totally ok with that! I’m like a little kid when it comes to the holiday season and I’m always more than ready to get into the holiday spirit, even before fall has officially started haha. The Christmas Sisters was the perfect book to bring the magic of the season to life and it made me even more excited about the holidays than I already am.This foll...
  • Brandie
    3.5 stars. I would’ve loved this book more if it weren’t for Beth. She rubbed me the wrong way throughout the entire book. Otherwise it was a good holiday read.

From the workaholic Hannah, to the stay-at home-mom, Beth to Posy, the one who stayed home to help out their adoptive parents, three sisters will come together in the snowy Highlands of Scotland, open their hearts and embrace the love and support they have always needed.An emotionally taut tale of c...

    5 Words: Christmas, family, secrets, forgiveness, acceptance.First reviewed on Tea Party Princess.In the past, Sarah Morgan has been one of my go-to seasonal romance authors and especially Sleigh Bells in the Snow has me coming back year after year. The Christmas sisters is quite different in that the focus is fully on family from the start, and any romance is incidental. And I actually loved it.The narrative jumps between different characters so...
  • Books and Spoons
    A touching story about family and parenting, sisters, drama and tragedy in love and life during one special Christmas time that shakes up the relationships in the family and leads them all to a new path in life. I absolutely adore the way Sarah Morgan tells a story; there are deep emotions and angst but not so much that it overshadows the story hope and love. There are conflicts, passion, humor, warmth, sweetness, and everything else that are par...

  • Sunita
    3.5 stars. It has plenty of moments of sweetness and Christmas cheer and very likeable characters. The sisters and their husbands/love interests and the parents were nicely differentiated and the moppets were cute and well integrated. But the plot turns felt a bit forced at times and the important moments weren't always clearly grounded and motivated. And the village and its people were barely there. Morgan is always worth reading, but for whatev...

    This book was simply brilliant from the first page and didn't want to put ot down the story was so like real life and the characters are brilliant and the story plot is so believable. Perfect Christmas read to curl up in front of a fire and enjoy Christmas. It's all about family life and how all a mother wants is for her children to be happy and in love and enjoy being with each other. Plenty of romance and sisterly love but also heartbreaking an...

    2018-10-22 Morgan (you may already know this 🙂 ) is one of my favourite authors and I love the new direction her writing is taking us. Still the romance, when it’s important to the characters, but a world that is rich in so many different emotions.A catastrophe in the past has affected and shaped all of the characters in the McBride family meaning that the emotional hold is so strong it colours all of their...

Three sisters who are very different, one from another - Posy “…was like a little ball. She bounced.” Beth, on the other hand…”was a delicate little thing.” Hannah seemed to be from a different family, altogether. Posy lives in the village of Gl...

    And my Sarah Morgan kick continues. Something about her writing has really hit the right buttons for me this time of year. What isn't to love about spending Christmas in Scotland?I enjoy stories with multi-character POVs. This one had a mother and her three daughters. They all have some kind tension or things unsaid/not dealt with. Both in their current lives and with each other. Of course, the holidays always bring these tensions to the forefron...

    This is my first book by Sarah Morgan, but it will not be my last! I loved The a Christmas Sisters and the story of Hannah, Beth, and Posy. Their relationship with each other was believable. And the characters were well developed. I shed a couple tears throughout, all the sign of a well written book. It was both cute and heartfelt. A perfect book to kickoff my Christmas reads! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and ...

  • Rachel Gilbey
    I have no idea how she does it, but yet again Sarah Morgan is treating us to a simply marvellous story, all about sisters and family. For the Christmas sisters aren't really that close, a terrible accident in their past has shaped how all three ladies are today as well as their mother Suzanne. With the viewpoint switching each chapter to a different one of our four leading ladies, we get to know Hannah, Beth, Posy and Suzanne really well, and pro...

    I really, really enjoyed this family story and have no hesitation in highly recommending it! The tragedy which led to Suzanne McBride adopting three sisters is still impacting on all of their lives twenty five years later. The three sisters rarely get together now, except for at Christmas. This year, however, things are going to be very different for them all as they discover that assumptions about each other can be so wrong and they all have the...

    Song for summary: All I Ever Wanted by Brian MeloWhat a heart-warming read! The characters are diverse, endearing, and troubled; while the plot is a festive tale overflowing with Christmas magic, family, and the importance of moving on. Full of sisterly love and drama, this delightful novel will fill you from head to toe with holiday cheer. This was another brilliant story by Sarah Morgan, and I will definitely be reading more or this author!
