I still need to read all the books, so far I just read this one and another novella (A Greene Family Vacation). But I have plans to read it all! I don’t mind getting spoiled, and in any case, it is not much of a spoiler if you know that each book features a couple and that a HEA is guaranteed. XD I just had to get this one for the Christmas season. I just had to see how the Greene family was doing.
And I loved the way the book was done. Each chapter is a different Greene + each chapter begins with a quote (which I absolutely loved). I had to recheck the family tree again to make sure who was who, haha, it is such a big family I think I will have to do it for each book when I get to it. XD I loved how the book started with Hank and ended with Marla and Ethel. And then the authors don’t stop, oh no, we get a glimpse of Calista Bailey (YES) seeing someone off which sets the excitement bar for the next series VERY HIGH. I loved following the family and I loved how far they went for each other. How far to make sure that this Christmas will be epic again. I loved seeing them explore traditions + also wonder if the family needs all of these. Haha, which I would say no, seriously, the amount of things they had to get done and the fact that Marla is the one doing almost all of it? DANG, I would ditch some traditions fast. Traditions are fun, but they need to stay fun. It doesn’t need to feel like a chore to get gingerbread houses done, or to do carolling when you are just not in the mood. I loved going through the town. I loved visiting Marla and Hank’s home and see the family gather. I also loved that we got some sexy moments between various couples. Even one of the older couples. That made me smile. I was already thinking that this one would be very tame, but there we go. XD
So yeah, I had a ton of fun seeing the days go by and see the family get together. I loved the ending, it made me smile, though I did think Marla was a bit strict at one point. Then again, good for her to stand up for herself and give herself some room, but it did feel a bit harsh and I could imagine the girls reactions.
I also loved that we got some Rylan/Calista stuff. Either mentioned, or when we get Rylan’s POV we see how things are going.
All in all, I loved this book and I had so much fun reading it. All the Christmas vibes! Romance + traditions + fun + family! Yas~ I would recommend it and I cannot wait for the new series.
