This funny, charming and heartwarming new Christmas novel is USA TODAY bestselling author Sarah Morgan at her festive best! 

In the snowy perfection of Aspen, the White family gathers for youngest daughter Rosie’s whirlwind Christmas wedding. First to arrive are the bride’s parents, Maggie and Nick. Their daughter’s marriage is a milestone they are determined to celebrate wholeheartedly, but they are hiding a huge secret of their own: they are on the brink of divorce. After living apart for the last six months, the last thing they need is to be trapped together in an irresistibly romantic winter wonderland.

Rosie’s older sister, Katie, is also dreading the wedding. Worried that impulsive, sweet-hearted Rosie is making a mistake, Katie is determined to save her sister from herself! If only the irritatingly good-looking best man, Jordan, would stop interfering with her plans…

Bride-to-be Rosie loves her fiancĂ© but is having serious second thoughts. Except everyone has arrived—how can she tell them she’s not sure? As the big day gets closer, and emotions run even higher, this is one White family Christmas none of them will ever forget!

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed, A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan.  It's not a fast-paced story, but rather the kind of story that you take your time with, enjoy, and savor.  While the beginning had a slower start, things started to really pick up at the half way point.

This is a story about family, self-discovery, and the continuous journey of learning about oneself and growing.  I loved that Ms. Mogan gave us three different points of view.  We get Maggie, who is an empty-nester and has been separated from her husband Nick for months; Katie, who is the eldest daughter, has suffered from a traumatic experience, and started to doubt her career choice as an E.R. doctor, and Rosie, the youngest daughter, who has had a whirlwind romance, and is now engaged to get married at Christmas time. 

All three of these women have secrets that they are keeping from each other, and are battling self-doubt, and emotional distress for different reasons.  When the whole family comes together a few weeks before Rosie's wedding day they will each face their individual challenges, as well as challenges as a family.  Romance is in the air, as well as Rosie's wedding serving as a catalyst for growth and change.

If you enjoy Women's Fiction, stories about family, self-discovery, growth, romance, and the holidays, you need to check out, A Wedding in December!  I enjoy Sarah Morgan's writing style and this story is sure to make you laugh, smile, and see a bit of yourself and your own family in it, due to the authenticity and relatability of the main characters.

  1. Lindy Sarah is my all time favorite author and as soon as I get my house back together this is going to be first on my list. Thanks for the super review

    1. Thanks Debbie! You're going to love this story!

  2. I enjoy stories with multi-generations of family and personal growth situations like this. It does sound really good. I still need to read my first Sarah Morgan.

    1. I loved getting all of the different women in the family's point of view. I think you would enjoy a story by Sarah Morgan Sophia.

  3. A great review Lindy ❤️ I was surprised to see a Christmas book already but I guess September really is the right time. I love the idea that we follow 3 women and see how they all interconnect. There is something really comforting about that as we all age.

  4. This sounds like a lovely read! I got married in December so I have a soft spot for winter weddings too. :)

  5. This sounds like the perfect kind of book to curl up with for the Christmas season! Great review!

  6. I've been wondering if I should give this one a go. I like the sound of it, especially the empty nester character. I'm wondering if she reconciles with her husband. I think I'm going to give it a try. Wonderful review, Lindy! :)


We love to hear your thoughts, and appreciate you stopping by :)
