    Beautifully written, this work of women’s fiction will have you yearning for the Christmas season to begin.The cover alone is so welcoming, as are the engaging, well developed characters in this storyline which warms the heart.Survivor’s guilt is a crushing burden to bear, and nobody knows that more than Suzanne. She is the adoptive mother of three daughters, Hannah, Beth and Posy. They lost their biological parents twenty-five years ago due ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

Hannah, Beth, and Posy are as different as they come, meeting only once a year for their annual family gathering in the Highlands. Hannah is independent and assured, Beth is motherly and organized, and Posy is her parent's combined, at least that's what they've led one another to think. Their mother, Suzanne, h...

    Such a heartwarming read. Really loved this one. Here we have the story of three sisters who faced tragedy as young children. Each were affected differently and as adults they grew apart. In this book, due to certain events, they all decide to return home for Christmas in Scotland. They finally have a chance to heal some festering wounds from their childhood. I really loved this. We get each sisters point of view as well as the mother. I think th...

    The Christmas Sisters is a fabulous read. I loved the McBride Sisters, Hannah, Posy and Beth. And, of course, their adoptive parents, Suzanne and Steward. My favorite character would have to be Beth. As a stay at home mom, I definitely understood what she was going through. I honestly was not too cray about Hannah at first but the more I got to know her, the more she grew on me. I loved Posy and her side kick, Bonnie. So sweet. Suzanne and Stewar...

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Sarah Morgan does it again!  I think I have found my sweet spot with this author's writing.  THE CHRISTMAS SISTERS is not a traditional romance, but it's packed full love.  Sisterly love, motherly love, and romantic love as well.  All delivered with the right dose of family drama and a happy en...

    The McBride sisters spend most of their time avoiding one another, but Christmas this year might be different.Why on earth haven’t I read Sarah Morgan’s books before? I may have been on holiday in scorching temperatures when I immersed myself in this book but The Christmas Sisters proves that smashing, feel-good fiction can be read and thoroughly enjoyed at any time of the year.Although all the women in the story are well rounded and realisti...

    I don't know what it is, but I'm loving each new book that Sarah comes out with more and more. Her standalones have been hitting me hard and I get sucked into the storylines every time. 5/5 starsOverall Thoughts: I have to admit that I was a little hesitant about reading a Christmas book in October. All I wanted to focus on this month were thrillers and suspense novels. It pushed me out of my comfort zone to jump into the holiday season so early ...

    I own all of Sarah's books and she never disappoints. What a wonderful Christmas story!!Hannah, Bethany and Posey have all lost their parents, at a young age, and Suzanne and Stewart decide to adopt the girls, with no hesitation. Suzanne always wants to have the "perfect Christmas" for her daughter's. This Christmas is not going to go as planned. All three sister's deal with the tragedy in their own ways and each have very individual lives. Posey...

    Suzanne and Stewart adopted Hannah, Posy, and Beth when their parents were killed just before Christmas 25 years ago. The holiday always brings up old memories and unfortunately the trauma so every year they get together in Scotland (well, it is home, of course.). Hannah, the eldest, is the most untethered as she's travelled and worked around the world. Beth is the most grounded, as a stay at home mom; she really wants to go back to work but has ...

    4.5 StarsThis one will get you into the Christmas spirit. This family only gets together at Christmas and this year it's going to be any interesting one. I like that you get four stories going on at once. The three sisters and their mother. This book will hit you right in the heart. It has the feels times 100. Each sister is struggling with where their life it taking them, but this holiday season may be just the one that heals them from long ago....

    I'd probably categorize this more as a book about family and life rather than a holiday romance. But if you're looking for a book about the holiday spirit and family coming back together and sisters, this is definitely one you should check out. There is a lot going on in this book and that's good, because it makes it go quickly, but I almost with it was split into three different books. Then we could get a book for each sister rather than switchi...

    The McBride sisters have all come home to Scotland for Christmas and they’ve brought a load of “baggage” with them! Three sisters who have been avoiding each other, a pregnancy test, a sexy mountain climber, a gossipy small town, two children, a horse named Socks, and loads of Christmas chaos...

    I just finished reading this book yesterday and I so hope that this becomes a series of books, because I want to know what happens next for each of the Mcbride sisters, Beth, Hannah and Posy. The story centers around them gathering together for Christmas with their adoptive parents Suzanne and Stewart and the reason each of them has for wanting to be there for the holidays. This story is heart warming and shows love throughout the book, and shows...

    The Christmas Sisters isn't your usual light Christmas romance. Ms. Morgan has loaded the plot with individual story lines for each of the sisters and their mother. Each separate story is fascinating in it's own right as you get to know the characters. Aside from those subplots, there are the interactions of the women together and their individual reactions to the tragic event that resulted in the death of the girl's birth parents. The resulting ...

    This is an amazing tale of sisterhood, family, love and heartbreak. I love that the author showed that not everyone enjoys the holiday season. There was a lot of depth in the characters and their stories This is a must read in my opinion

    I enjoyed this book very much. It revolves around three sisters. They usually only get together once a year for the holidays. Because of a tragedy when they were children there are issues. They find it very hard to confide in and be there for each other. But this Christmas could be different and bring the three closer than they ever have been. A great holiday read.

    The McBride sisters couldn’t be more different: analytical and career-driven Hannah, former beauty marketing/PR representative turned full-time mom Beth, and outdoor-loving Posey, helping run her parents’ business. The things that they share in common: a tragic and traumatic past that led to their adoption by Suzanne and Stewart when Hannah was 8 years old, and a predilection for anxiety. The sisters and Suzanne serve as narrators in this hol...
