About the Book
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.
In My Opinion
I know some of you are going to be groaning about the Christmas books already coming, but I’ll ready them any time of year, so I have no problem with them. And Melody Carlson is always a good choice to kick of the seasonal reads.
In The Christmas Swap, Arizona resident Emma gets roped into going with her friend’s family to Colorado for the holidays. While Emma both anticipates (she’s never seen snow) and dread (the Landers family has its challenges) the vacation, she goes along.
The short length of this book means the romance moves fast (a matter of days), character development doesn’t go as deep, and the antagonist is extremely unlikable. However, the magic of falling in love during the holidays is there.
While this isn’t my favorite Carlson Christmas read, I did finish it in one sitting.
