Nothing could make me leave my family alone for Christmas—except maybe my father-in-law. I swore to Carrie I’d make it home in time, and I’m keeping that promise. One way or another…

I’ll be home for Christmas.

Some promises can’t be kept, and sometimes things just don’t work out. Finn is my world, my life. But when my worst nightmares come true, I’m faced with the impossible truth. Without him…

I'm lost.

My Thoughts

I first discovered Jen McLaughlin's writing with her Out of Line series and immediately was drawn to the characters Carrie and Finn and their forbidden romance. This couple went through many highs and lows, and experienced danger along the way to their happily ever after. When the author announced we would get more of Carrie and Finn, I was all over this novella! And it is Christmas themed and it is more Carrie and Finn!! (Yes, I was that excited it is worth repeating).

I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS brings us back into the world of Carrie and Finn, Noelle and Riley, and their friends and colleagues. We get to learn what they've been up to since we last read about them and find out how their friendships as couples have grown. When Finn is called away by his father-in-law, for a quick trip and security detail, it is obvious that there won't be anything quick about it.

We get some girl time with Carrie, Noelle, and Marie - I love all of the girl talk and revealing of secrets because it lets me get to know these characters a little bit better.

I really liked reading this book and it's a great lead-in into the new book of the series - ON THE LINE. I'm thrilled that I only have to wait a week for that one!
