REVIEW: Coming Home for Christmas by Jenny Hale
Allie Richfield loves Christmas, so when she lands a job as House Manager for the amazing Ashford Estate—which includes organizing the Marley family festivities—she is in her element. With a budget bigger than her life savings and a team of staff, how hard can it be?
As one-by-one she meets the Marleys, she’s about to find out...
Allie’s new boss, Robert, might be gorgeous, but he’s also colder than the snow outside and refuses to come home for Christmas. Robert’s playboy brother, Kip, flirts with her relentlessly; and his sister, Sloane, arrives home with baggage—both the divorce-kind and the Louis Vuitton kind. Their ninety-two year old grandmother, Pippa, spends her day grumbling at them all from her mobility scooter.
With Robert intending to sell Ashford, it’s the Marley’s last chance to create some happy memories in their family home—and Allie is determined to make it happen... even if it takes a little Christmas magic! With the festive spirit in full swing, she might even discover a little happiness of her own…
I was clearly meant to read this book. After reading the wrong back cover and then mixing it up on my Kindle I finally see it was worth it. The story takes place at Ashford Estates which is in Virginia (my home). I could totally see this house in my mind. All the decorations inside and outside. I could also see all the family members in my mind as well. This story seemed very real and I'm sure it may hit close to home even if it's a small neighborhood one.
So, grab a blanket and some coffee and pick this book up. I think you will be pleasantly surprised as I was.
I give this book 4 chocolate dipped strawberries.
