A Christmas Vacation in Paperback

All Emma Daley wants this holiday season is a white Christmas. But the young teacher and struggling musician sure can’t find that in sunny Arizona. Luckily, there’s someone living in a perfect mountain home in the Colorado Rockies looking to make a vacation trade this year.

Tyler Prescott is an in-demand songwriter and talented musician who put his own singing career on hold to write songs for celebrity acts to perform. When his mother convinces him to do a vacation trade for Christmas, he never imagined one of the houseguests would be so sweet–or so strikingly pretty. Naturally, he decides to stick around, and, to get better acquainted, he poses as the house’s caretaker. But when Emma’s friend Gillian discovers his true identity and sets her sights on him, things
get . . . messy

Fan favorite Melody Carlson is back with another delightful Christmas tale to warm your heart on those cold winter evenings.

My Thoughts: When I see the name Melody Carlson, I think of warm Christmas stories. Christmas Swap is one that will get you in the spirit. From the moment I heard about this story, I fell in love with the concept. And the novel proved to be a fun escape for the afternoon.

The characters fell a little flat for me but there were enough twists and turns to keep the story moving forward. Now, where this book really shines is in the setting. I felt like I was there skiing with them.

There wasn’t any spiritual content in this one but the main characters seemed to have a moral Christian outlook on life, so it was certainly a safe, clean read.

Rating and Recommendations: I’m giving Christmas Swap 3.5 stars and recommending it to those who are looking for a quick Christmas escape.
